Walks in nature
Dovžan Gorge Scenic Educational Trail
Who will be the first to find a dinosaur?
The Dovžan Gorge is located in the central part of the Karavanke Mountains, Slovenia’s longest mountain range. Within it lies a unique site of rocks dating from the late Paleozoic Era. Take a walk through the gorge and learn about the rich geological heritage uncovered by the Tržič Bistrica River, a mountain river that carved a riverbed through the diverse rock deposits.
Eagle Trail on Dolga Njiva
Eagle Trail is a pleasant and relatively effortless way to learn about many interesting features of the local landscape. The loop trail is easy and suitable for families who are less interested in an adrenaline rush and more interested in satisfying their curiosity about natural history and sampling tasty local foods.
Forest Educational Trail
Forest educational trails are an excellent place to learn about the biodiversity of an area. This forest educational trail links up with the scenic educational trail exploring the rich geology of the Dovžan Gorge, enabling intensive learning about the interconnectedness of living and nonliving components of nature.
Kamnek is a scenic peak above Tržič. The top can be reached starting right from the old town centre and offers views of some of the better known mountains in the area, such as Storžič, Veliki Vrh and Begunjščica. It also offers a beautiful view of the town of Tržič.
The largest natural rosary in the world
The Rosary Pilgrimage Trail is unique in all the world. It has the shape of a rosary but it is so big that this is hidden to the eye. What is essential is always invisible to the eye. Knowledge, too. It comes when the heart is open, the mind is calm, and the body relaxed. And one of the most beautiful ways to achieve all three is through pilgirmage.
Three Bells Trail
The best sounding trail
Does a witch live here? Is someone hiding in the cave? Does the clear water from karst springs have magical power? Udin Woods (Slovene: Udin boršt) is a rugged karst landscape that fires the imagination. But the Three Bells Trail, which winds through the northern part of Udin Woods, is a pleasant and easy route for all ages.
