Endless hiking in Koroška
We can't get enough of exploring Slovenia on foot. Therefore, the hiking trails in Koroška are fortunately not only equipped for day trips, because they are also part of various long-distance hiking trails that lead beyond the regional or national borders. A stage of the Slovenian Mountain Trail passes through Koroška and even the European Long Distance Trail E6 runs through the beautiful region between the starting and finishing points in Finland and Turkey.
Koroška is characterized not only by lush green forests but also by the striking white rocks of the foothills of the Alps, which stand out among the treetops. The woods of the west Pohorje hills are dark and deep, at places almost impassable primeval forests, mostly overgrown by conifers. But on hot summer days, the forest paths are just the thing for a relaxing hike through the valley.
By the way, the mighty Sgerm spruce, the tallest tree in Central Europe is located on Ribniško Pohorje.
Whether with family, friends or alone, in Koroška there are routes for every taste - easy, medium or difficult, choose what you feel like. Around the larger villages, there are themed trails, which provide interesting information at several stations and playfully teach young and old about the peculiarities of the local nature. If you are looking for challenging hikes in rocky terrain and have enough stamina, follow the trails out to Peca (Petzen), Olševa or Raduha.
