The Dovžan gorge is a journey through time. Although it is older than the dinosaurs, no dinosaur ever trod here. They did, however, swim: 300 million years ago this place was the site of a tropical sea, teeming with marine animals. Today in the walls of the gorge we can see their fossilized remains in abundance, including some that are found nowhere else in the world.

“We had a bike tour on Šija with co-workers and we had a great time! Awsome experience for us. Beautiful views through the whole trip.
Jernej and Jerca were very nice and friendly. I recommend it to everyone looking for a fun activity in nature. Thank you for such a wonderful day, team Greenhills!”
“The tour consists of a long climb on stone paths along a stream. The ascent is made easy by the electric bikes. The stop in the mountain pastures refuge is the opportunity to discover an excellent version of a local specialty, the “strukli” and share a moment with locals. The start of the descent is a little technical (the only really sporty part) before simplifying. Do not hesitate to request the organization of special tours. The guide was particularly nice and knew the area very well.”
“I would like to give 5+ starts to Jernej for guiding us around Trzic, Slovenia with e-bikes. I can only recommend him and this tour where we biked fore more then 1000m uphill. Scenery was just spot on, amazing views to the sorroundings, the better way of spending your holidays out of beaten tracks.”
