The extensive mountain range on the south side is bordered by the Topla Valley ( and the Mežica Valley, while the country border between Slovenia and Austria runs over the top. With its landscape gem of the Topla Valley and King Matjaž sleeping in its embrace Peca is considered a symbol of the Koroška region. It is also a great opportunity for observing the high mountain karst, traces of glacial activity and numerous animal and plant species.


Raduha (2.062 m) represents the most eastern part of the Savinja Alps ridge. The mountain is a limestone ridge, cut steeply in the wall in the north, which is a true paradise for Alpinists. Despite the larger part of the mountain lying beyond the Koroška region, the locals consider it to be their own.

Uršlja gora

Mount Uršlja Gora is known as one of the easiest to access. It is also a popular pilgrimage stop, since on its top you will find the Church of St. Ursula – the highest church in Slovenia. At the top of the 1,699-metre mountain you will experience wonderful views of the Mežica, Mislinja, Drava and Šaleška Valleys.

On the way, you can take a look at the Brančurnik sarcophagus, the Apohal Chapel, taste the spring water, step onto the stone steps of St. Ursula and indulge in the magnificent views from the top.


Mount Olševa lying in the eastern Mežica-Solčava Karavanke ridge next to the Austrian border is 1,929 metres high at its highest point. Its ridge once divided the historical regions of Koroška and Štajerska. About 200 metres under the Obel Kamen peak, you can visit an excavation site from the Stone Age – Potočka Zijalka.


More than 23 million years ago a volcano was active deep under the sea in the Smrekovec area. It produced large quantities of volcano ash, dust and lava. This created rocks such as andesite, tuff and tuffite, which can be found on your way to the top. The diverse rock foundation provided special conditions for the creation of life. In direct vicinity of the Dom na Smrekovcu cabin you will find the Karavanke Geopark interpretation spot, where you can see a film about the Smrekovec volcano, play and learn about the rock formation, learn new facts about trees, their age, the king of the forest – the wild rooster, and much more.
