Local tours

A true and genuine inspiration for our work comes directly from our beautiful surroundings. Nature, culture, history and gastronomy. And we like to share this with our guests, so we offer local walks and talks. Our atelier is also a part of a bigger regional project 'Lika destination' whose aim is to promote the natural and cultural heritage of Lika region, focusing on local products and projects, bringing them together and connecting them to larger networks. The underlying philosophy is to motivate local community to keep it's tradition and at the end to support their way of living, as a local gem in a global world.

Our tours range from short drives end/or walks to one of the sight seeing places, to long, whole day hikes in the surrounding mountains. From untouched wilderness to remains of old civilizations. We offer this tours as a part of our ceramics workshops as inspirational walks and relaxing between firings, but we offer them also to anybody interested to know more about Plaški.

Every year for the international water day (22th of March) with our mountaineering club 'Plaške Glave' we organize big hiking event for few hundred people where we walk along fresh water springs and mountain peaks.

Other stories that we tell on our tours:
