Vlakom za zážitkom - Horehronský expres

Nostalgické jazdy historickým vlakom. Spomalenie počas celého leta v piatky a soboty ponúkajú nostalgické jazdy historickými vlakmi s rokom výroby siahajúcim až do roku 1934. Historické vlaky budú premávať na dvoch trasách: z Brezna cez Červenú skalu po Mlynky a z Brezna na Salaš Zbojská. Obidve panoramatické trasy nezabudnuteľnou horehronskou prírodou vedú za tradíciami, oddychom ale aj aktívnym zážitkom pešo či na bicykli.

Plavba v jaskyni Domica mimo prevádzky.

24.07.2018 Vzhľadom k nepriaznivému stavu vody je okruh s plavbou v jaskyni Domica mimo prevádzky . V prevádzke je len okruh bez plavby.

Návšteva jaskyne s malým dieťaťom

Vážení návštevníci, vzhľadom k zvýšenej návštevnosti rodičov s veľmi malými deťmi (asi do cca 1 - 4 rokov) Vás žiadame, aby ste pre prehliadky fyzicky náročnejších jaskýň mali k dispozícii ruksakové sedačky pre zvládnutie prehliadky v stanovenom čase. Týka sa to všetkých, ale najmä nasledovných jaskýň: Demänovská jaskyňa slobody, Belianska jaskyňa, Dobšinská ľadová jaskyňa, Demänovská ľadová jaskyňa, Harmanecká jaskyňa. Výnimkou je Brestovská jaskyňa kde je možný vstup deťom len od 6 rokov, nakoľko je to dané obtiažnosťou prehliadkovej trasy jaskyne. Takisto prosíme, aby ste zvážili návštevu s deťmi, ktoré by svojim plačom mohli rušiť ostatných návštevníkom. Ďakujeme za porozumenie a prajeme príjemnú návštevu.
