Southwest of Maribor is the first tree top walk in Slovenia. In the middle of Pohorje, the densely wooded mountains in the north of the country, visitors can expect fantastic panoramic views. The architecturally sophisticated timber construction is located in Rogla at 1500 metres above sea level.
The heart of the 1043 metre long path is the impressive lookout tower with a height of 37 metres. The path there winds its way through the treetops at a height of 20 metres. Along the way there are several learning and experience stations, which bring the visitors closer to the surroundings, nature and environment. Due to its accessibility and the very slow ascent, the treetop path is also suitable for prams and wheelchairs.
The treetop path is open all year round. In winter there is also a popular skiing area nearby, in which among other things World Cup alpine snowboard races are held.
Slovenia's first treetop path was opened on September 20, 2019. 1.3 million was invested. The Erlebnis Akademie AG from Bavaria was responsible for the implementation, which already successfully operates eight further tree top walks in Europe. Among them, for example, is the attraction in the Bavarian Forest, in Lipno or in Krkonoše. Further tree top walks are to follow in the next few years.
How to get there
The treetop walk is located southwest of Maribor. With the Auto it is best to leave the motorway at the exit Slovenske Konjice and drive about half an hour (approx. 25 km) to Rogla.
You can also reach the treetop path with buses. This one starts in Zreče, the next bigger town. You can get there by bus from the nearest train stations in Celje (coming from the west) and Poljčan (coming from the east).
