Take a stroll on themed, educational, and mountain trails
Do you like exploring natural sites? Experience a hiking adventure in the lowlands of Slovenia. Interesting walking, themed, educational, and mountain trails can be found everywhere.
Slovenia is intertwined with hiking trails. A wide range of interesting and diverse trails will excite any hiker.
The Karst and Istria Regions
Add a hiking adventure to your holiday at the seaside. The Karst Region and the Slovenian part of the Istria Peninsula – this is an open and windy terrain dominated by the north-east wind known as the “burja.” A marked trail follows the Karst Edge, enabling you to walk from the Italian to the Croatian border. In multiple spots, you can leave the trail to visit the coast or to hike up to Mt. Slavnik.
The Dolenjska, Bela Krajina, and Kočevsko Regions
Hiking trails lead you from the area known for the traditional craft of woodenware, across the woods of Kočevje, to the southernmost areas of Slovenia along the River Kolpa, from the Bela Krajina Region, across the Gorjanci Hills, on the trails of the White Monks to the Suha Krajina Region and the valley of the River Krka.
The Savinja and Šalek Valleys
A vast mountainous world, picturesque natural parks, lakes, and the lively River Savinja are a popular destination for hikers, photographers, and lovers of active getaways. The walking, themed, educational, hiking trails and mountain tours in this area have various levels of difficulty. The Menina Planina Plateau, Mt. Golte, the Logar Valley, the Solčava Panoramic Road, Mt. Paški Kozjak, and the Šalek Mountain Route are full of wonderful trails for hikers and mountain lovers.
Are you in the mood for a hike?
Take part in some of the numerous hiking festivals and events, where you will learn about Slovenian natural and cultural heritage together with like-minded people. Make a stop at one of the mountain lodges and regain your strength.
There’s nothing better than comfortably resting after reaching the end of the trail

Perhaps you can go hiking in even higher hills

Long hikes, satisfying experiences
In Slovenia, lovers of long walks are able to find trails with interesting themes and diverse characteristics, connecting mountain peaks and valleys with coastal areas. Hike on the Alpe Adria Trail, the Walk of Peace, the E7 European long-distance path, etc.
