Here you will be enchanted by the mighty, dark forests, inviting you to their shadow in the summer and completely charming you in the winter. By bicycle, on foot or enjoying the winter fun, it is active each day of the year.
Mostly coniferous forest covers more than 70% of the land. While exploring, you will encounter forests and plains – grasslands stretching out on the plateaus. They are the remains of pastures and meadows that were created by deforestation. And these areas are being once again overgrown, since their use is becoming obsolete. These acidic Pohorje grasslands are home to the matgrass, as well as arnica and orchids. In the steeper areas, the plains blend with heather, blueberries and cranberries. The Pohorje forests, meadows and marshes are home to game, many bird species (wild chicken, owls, birds of prey, woodpeckers), as well as butterflies, bugs, amphibians and other animal species.
Taking a walk to the peat bogs is a very special experience on its own. It is best to visit the Ribniško Jezero and the Lovrenška Jezera lakes by foot. The walk on wooden paths or brunče will open up many natural peculiarities and you can rest your eyes on the diverse images of nature.
