Charcoal land

Športno društvo Dole

In Dole pri Litiji, where the old tradition of charcoal producing is still alive, you can see for yourself how wood turns into charcoal. You will experience charcoal pile burning and the lifestyle of charcoal burners at certain farms. Alone or with a guide, go for a hike along the signposted Charcoal Trail, which runs past the Valvasor hunting manor in Zavrh. Every third Saturday in May the hike along the Charcoal Trail is organised, and every other Saturday in September you can experience charcoaling at the traditional ethnologic and ethnographic event called the Charcoal Land.
