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.
