ABOUT NATURPLAC NA ŠKALI

'Naturplac Na Škali' is open to socializing and cooperation. Our strength and obligation lie in the fact that we respect natural and cultural values. With the help of good practice, consistent education, learning, and awareness-raising not only of the providers of such services but also of the nature custodians, nature protection supervisors, nature’s interpreters, tourist workers, and others in charge, as well as the general public, are those that will grant the only correct, sustainable (tourist) future.

 

Our guests will be offered education regarding the importance of environmental conservation and nature protection through workshops e.g. photographic and other artistic workshops, culinary workshops, and other thematic, pedagogic, experimental workshops.

 

Expecting a big number of people from abroad throughout the summer in our NaturPlac (Austria, Ireland, Scotland, England, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Mexico,...) we hope that our guests will learn about different cultures and ethnicities.

Therefore our goal is that the local people mix with foreign visitors and create the ‘two-way information system’ enabling the learning and simultaneous information exchange. By means of animation programs, such as ‘intercultural evenings’ featuring the love of nature with regard to different personal experiences and introduction of various nations in the Naturplac would strengthen the awareness of the individual sustainable existence.

VOLUNTEERING

Would you like to volunteer your energy and skills to help us develop eco-projects in Slovenia? Are you looking for a working holiday with a difference?

We are offering long-term opportunities from April 2023 till October 2023. Long-term volunteers stay for at least a month. In exchange for your help and company, we'll provide you: payment, three meals a day plus drinks (non-alcoholic), a tent for your personal use, equipped with mattress, bedding and bed linen, use of our laundry facilities for your personal clothes, our company for socializing.

We ask volunteers to help us 6 days per week and we encourage you to explore Slovenia on your days off. Volunteers will work in two shifts.
It can be physically demanding nonetheless. You may be helping us to run the site (cleaning, washing up, cooking, putting up tents), maintaining the gardens and grounds (strimming, mowing, watering our organic vegetable and flower gardens), or helping with major and minor eco-projects.

Above all, you'll be helping us to provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere for our guests but respecting their space and privacy when necessary. We like to engender a community atmosphere on-site and we see you playing a key part in that.
For more details about how to apply oyou can send us an email on info@naturavantura.com with subject: VOLUNTEER. Vacancies on our volunteer programs are limited and sadly we had to refuse many applicants last year so get in contact soon.

We will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

OUR MISSION

We put stress on and promote the importance of active life – maintenance of the environment and human relationship with nature. We wish to thrill Slovene tourists and keep them in Slovenia since we base on the assumption: ‘’Get to know Slovenia first and then comes the world!’’

 

Using innovative methods with the Slovene guests we will become interesting for foreign tourists as well. Through education (both, about micro and macro space) about ways of existence on our planet, we want to raise peoples’ awareness of small but important things that help create the quality of our living. With positive clues, social and economic, we want to affect peoples’ lives within the sphere of our activities since we are sure of our work and we act professionally.

Continuous educational and learning process is the key to a successful future, therefore, we are willing to share our knowledge with our guests and the local community. At the same time, we will develop our basic activity thus widening our additional skills. Since the very ‘’knowledge is a treasure that always accompanies his owner.’’ (Chinese saying)

OUR GOALS

Our company’s basic goal within the next five years is to become well known tourist-educational-social local company (Upper Savinjska Valley) with the potential to spread widely throughout Slovenia by establishing new similar projects and promoting sustainable thinking.

The area of our operations, above all the Logarska Valley which is considered one of the most beautiful glacial valleys in Europe, is an unspoiled gem from the tourist point of view which attracts more tourists into the region every year. Its tourist potential offers many business opportunities which need to be properly evaluated and presented.
