In the green heart of Europe people live an active life. This is a story about love of activities in nature, which is almost innate to Slovenes. In every large city you can enjoy the views of green hills or alpine peaks, almost each Slovene likes to put on hiking boots and feel the joy in the middle of mountains. Green colour is what a visitor in Slovenia feels first. More than 5,000 kilometres of walkways and theme trails for Nordic walking and over 10,000 kilometres of alpine roads spread all over the country and call for active experience. “I walk, therefore I am”, is the life motto of Pia Peršič, a passionate Slovenian hiker and ambassador of healthy life.
“In one or two hiking days in Slovenia, you may experience an incredible variety of landscape, covering merely 20,273 square kilometres, extending from green lowlands up to alpine high mountains and seaside. In the meantime, pampering in the alpine huts and hiking hotels is a must”, says Pia. Slovenia changes its appearance rapidly. Pannonia plain on the East gradually spreads into vineyard hills to the South and West. Picturesque hills, covered with lovely villages, forests and waters, rise towards the alpine world, right up to two-thousand-meter-high peaks. Everywhere you go, you are accompanied by the lovely smells of healthy herbs and trees.
