Experience the tradition of wood harvesting on the Drava River. Take a ride as the raftsmen would – on wooden logs on the Drava River! The raftsmen or flosarji, as they were called here, have an important assignment of transporting wood. Today the two timber rafting wharfs at Gortina by Muta and Javnik demonstrate, how the enormous wooden masses were transported on the river. Becoming a flosar was a very popular and valued profession. Hours and hours of hard work were cut only by the sounds of accordion, singing and time for a hearty traditional meal (koroška košta). They never ran out of joy and good mood while they worked. It is this joyous life of the raftsmen they re-enact in the timber rafting wharfs to this day in the most authentic way.
Wood was once the main raw material and a source of income in this area – for those selling it and those transporting it. In the times without railway and roads, the transport of wood by the river was the only option. Every young man wanted to become a raftsman or flosar, since they were well paid for their meticulous work, while exploring the world and meeting people.
Experience the ghost of the past on the ride with real raft replicas. There are several programmes for different groups available. Be it adults, children or joyous groups – everybody will experience the timber rafting story in a unique way. The timber rafting adventure is topped with the culinary and entertainment programme.
The timber rafting wharf in the Javnik village also demonstrates the ancestral life at the timber rafting event or flosarska rajža. The Javnik village also has an authentically preserved timber rafting house, which is a home to a museum, dedicated to the generations of vigorous raftsmen and their families.
