If you have time before or after your cave tour, follow the circular, 2km Škocjan Education Trail around the collapsed dolines of the cave system and into nearby hamlets. If time is short, take the path leading north and down some steps from the caves' ticket office – after 250m you'll reach a viewpoint that enjoys a superb vista of the Velika Dolina and the gorge where the Reka starts its subterranean journey.
