Koroška is one of Slovenia's most mountainous regions. It is characterised by the whiteness of the rocks and the soft slopes of the Alpine foothills, which along with the green of the forests give it its characteristic appearance. The forests of Koroška are deep and dark and in places impassable, but for the most part they are crisscrossed by cart tracks and forest paths and their ridges are accessible via trails that generally lead to the points from which to enjoy the best views. There are numerous mountain huts along the marked mountain trails, offering hikers warm shelter and a place to spend the night, fortifying food and drink and friendly advice. The Koroška region is traversed by European long-distance path E6 and the Slovenian Mountain Trail. Hillwalkers enjoy the challenge of the Koroška Alpine Trail, hikes across the expanses of the Pohorje massif, to the peaks of Kozjak, Uršlja Gora or Smrekovec, or the more demanding mountain ascents of Peca, Olševa or Raduha. The areas surrounding the region's larger towns offer numerous interesting themed routes suitable for relaxing walks, recreation or exploring. You will not find great crowds of hikers here, except on special occasions, and therefore your experience of unspoilt nature will be all the more genuine.
With its dense network of existing roads with low traffic, forest roads and trails, and a growing network of cycling lanes and paths, Koroška region offers numerous cycling possibilities and experience of unique landscape between the Alps and the river Drava. Koroška boasts over 1,000 km of cycling routes of all types and difficulty grades –either way, marked on the ground or marked on maps–, countless gravel roads, dirt roads and cart tracks, the unique underground biking, a spectacular single trails network for mountain bikers, the first mountain bike park in Slovenia, the international Drava River Cycling Trail, the Štrekna - cycling route in the Mislinja Valley, as well as numerous cycling events and competitions. With all this and more, in the Koroška region you will be able to create unlimited combinations for a bike tour up, down, between or even through the mountains.
