Walk 25 – a short walk from Idrija to Divje Jezero (or Wild Lake), from a Walking Guide to Slovenia.
An easy stroll to Divje Jezero, a small pool fed by an underground karst spring. This walk is worth doing in bad weather, because in heavy rain, the spring gushes water up into the pool and the surface appears as though it is boiling.
