Experience the forests of the Pohorje Hills from a bird’s perspective

You might not find a walk under the treetops anything unusual. But what if we invite you for a walk AMONG the treetops? Yes, you read that right! You can now take a walk on a kilometre-long trail in Rogla, which takes you 20 metres above the ground, where you can flirt with the green treetops virtually “eye to eye”. On your walk, you can stop at a few stations where you can feel a rush of adrenaline or learn some interesting facts about the Pohorje flora and fauna. You can also enjoy a stunning view from the top of a 37-metre tower.
