Have you ever really listened to the forest? An incredible melody hides among the mighty trees, soothing and filling you with energy. You might want to join a guided experience in the Bohinj forests, where you will learn to distinguish between resonant wood and ordinary wood, where you will feel the incredible power of the forest and enjoy its many different flavours. You will also learn about the rich local tradition associated with wood.
A walk among the treetops
Yes, that's right. At the top of Rogla you can take a walk high above the ground. The Treetop Walk will give you a bird's eye view of life in the Pohorje forests, a slight rush of adrenalin and, above all, some unforgettable memories. Take a look around from this 37-meter tower and ride back to solid ground on one of the largest spiral slides in Slovenia.
Feel the forest under your feet
When you've had enough of everything, it's time for a forest escape to recharge and find your inner balance. In the great forests of Cerkno, treat yourself to some reflexotherapy by walking on spruce needles, or sound therapy by lying in a hammock suspended between two trees – feel the energy emanating from the trees. Discover the path to yourself and to nature with the help of Forest Selfness.
Visit a forest in the city
Celje is one of the rare Slovenian cities that has a vast city forest. With a surface area of 94 hectares, it is considered the largest green public area in Slovenia. It is a sanctuary for strollers, recreational athletes and seekers of green refuge and peace. The forest's main attraction is the biggest Slovenian tree house, where there is always something interesting going on.
A forest right under one's nose in Ljubljana
Ljubljana is one of the greenest capitals in Europe, and there is plenty of evidence to support this claim. One is the fact that you can take a walk in the city centre and all of a sudden end up in a forest. Together with Tivoli Park and Mostec, Rožnik Hill is a popular forest refuge for Ljubljana's residents and visitors. It is literally mere steps away from its busiest streets and squares. You can also find forest oases in the middle of the city up on Castle Hill and Golovec.
Back to basics
Can you survive in the wild? You can test your skills and resourcefulness in nature without any of the necessities of modern life at the heart of the Kočevje forests. Learn what food you can find and where, how to start a fire without a match or a lighter, and how to build a shelter in the middle of the forest. Get in touch with nature.
Photo-hunting – your date with wild animals
Experience the diversity of Slovenian fauna and go on a photo-hunt with your camera. Catch a glimpse of the brown bear, lynx, wolf and other beasts, as well as rare birds and other interesting animals.
The forest is home to large carnivores
Large carnivores such as the wolf, lynx and brown bear roam Slovenian forests. There are frequent misconceptions about them, so it is well worth visiting the Large Carnivore Awareness Centre in Pivka, where interactive exhibitions enables visitors to take a closer look at large carnivores and their habitat, their importance and role in natural ecosystems and the ways in which humans and large carnivores coexist.
