What is better than best friends get together, jump into the car, and drive to the other side of Slovenia to have fun and just be relaxed.
All weekend just for us was absolutely the best decision last weekend in September. We started on Friday with a great dinner, chatting, and the weekend continued with fresh snow on Saturday, which was a little surprise for us.
Even though it was a snowy fairytale, we spent our morning in a nice new park, made in 2019, called POT POD KROŠNJAMI (Treetop walk).
“The Tree Top Walk is located in the heart of the majestic forests of the Pohorje mountains at the top of mountain Rogla which is 1.517 meters high”. The walk with a total length of 1.000 meters will take you through a diverse forest with adrenaline and educational stops on the way. In the end, you walk on a 37 meters high tower where is a perfect view of the landscape full of trees. If you want you can also jump on the slide and you will be down to the ground in a second.
The admission fee is 10€ for adults and 25€ for families.
The second day was more pleasant. Sunshine, a little snow, and amazing views on our adventures. First, we visited the “LOVRENŠKA JEZERA”. It is a high moor, where there are several small lakes. It is located between Rogla and Ribniško Pohorje and covers an area of 22 hectares. What gives a walk special effect, is a beautifully arranged path along the wooden footbridges and a wooden lookout tower that provides a view ‘from above’. We needed 2 hours and a half of slow walk to there and back.
For the afternoon we choose ČRNO JEZERO (Black Lake). It takes a half-hour to reach the lake. Meanwhile, we searched for cranberries, which are famous for this area and the time was just perfect.
The water in the lake is crystal clear, but at the bottom of the lake, organic waste from plants and animals accumulates and creates a thick layer of dark mud, which gives the lake its characteristic color.
On our 2 days trip, we also visited a local farm called ARBEITER FARM. They produce and sell their own homemade meat products. What is more, you can enjoy the view of deer.
We visited also a small village Skomarje, where is SKOMARSKA HIŠA. The house is a museum that shows rural building architecture. The best of the first day was probably just driving around and observe the landscape.
ROGLA IS FOR EVERYBODY!
Rogla is the right choice for all who want to spend their time in nature. It is really nice combination of nature and a pleasant mid-altitude mountain climate. You can enjoy plenty of opportunities for sports, recreation, health and well-being, authentic culinary delights!
RECOMMENDATION: And when in Rogla… do not forget to jump into the SPA! 😉
If we can not travel now, we can at least plan next adventures! ✔
