The all-day adventure begins with a ride through Livanjsko field which is the largest karst field in the world. Through the ride, the guide introduces you to the flora and fauna of Livanjsko field, which extends from Buško Lake to Bosansko Grahovo. Between Bosansko Grahovo and Drvar there is the cave Ledenica. This cave is unknown because it is closed to the public, so visiting this underground treasure is a real privilege. The cave has 14 halls that are rich in cave jewellery of large sizes and different colours, with shimmering and sparkling jewellery of all kinds (stalactites, stalagmites, columns, corals and others) that look really impressive. Through the cave you will be guided by a local guide from the area. All visitors will be provided with protective helmets and lamps. After an underground walk we drive to Preodac, a village at the base of Šator Mountain. The village has about 200 sources of drinking water with which we fill our bottles and continue our ride towards Šator Mountain. By vehicle we reach Šatorsko Lake, the water pearl that adorns this mountain. The lake is located at 1488 m, and with a length of close to 300 and a width of about 150 meters. It represents a huge mirror of the sky on its watery superficial. The lake is suitable for swimming, and in summer its temperature reaches 20 degrees, which makes it an extremely pleasant bathing area. Arriving at the lake, you can spend your time swimming, walking around the lake or hiking briefly on some of the nearby paths. During this time, the guide will prepare homemade food that will be served on the table by the lake. You can choose from several local dishes, dishes prepared under a baking bell, barbecue or mountain stew, with accompanying appetizers and drinks. Please note that you need to determine in advance the type of dishes you want, as food is prepared on the mountain. After lunch you will have a short time to rest and relax, before we take you back.
