Hiking & Mountain Biking

Kartografija's 1:40,000 Pohorje (€12) map outlines various circular hiking trails that are as short as 2km (30 minutes) and as long as 32km (eight hours) while the free Rogla-Zreče Karta Pohodnih Poti hiking map has 14 hikes and walks of between 3km and 33.5km. A good choice outlined on both maps is the 12km hike (three hours) that leads northwest to the Lovrenc Lakes (Lovrenska Jezera), a turf swamp with 20 small lakes that are considered a natural phenomenon.

Mountain bikers should get hold of a copy of the excellent free 1:100,000 Pohorje Cycling Map, spanning the entire Pohorje area with a dozen trails outlined heading west towards Slovenj Gradec and Dravograd and out east to Maribor. The spa’s map/brochure (1:50,000) called Rogla Terme Radfahrwege/Cycling Paths is much more basic, but sticks to the local area with nine trails linking Zreče, Rogla and Areh.
