CheraHiking – experience the Dragon's Trail through the Karawanks

Tržič serves as an excellent point of departure for visits to the Karavanke Mountains. You can set off in any direction from the town centre to explore the area's mountain pastures and peaks. The mountains around Tržič are suitable for young hikers and families, recreational enthusiasts, curious explorers, and seasoned mountaineers. Learn about the local lore and people - visit the mountain hostels, sample the life of herders on mountain pastures, wander the high-elevation grazing lands, summit a two-thousander. Experience it all and enjoy it with us.

The CheraHiking team can assist you in experiencing our local mountains in a unique way and learning about the local people, habits, customs, and stories. You will not be just a speck in a throng of visitors on overcrowded paths and peaks; rather, you fully experience the pulse of life in the Karavanke Mountains.
