Jogging and walking

The surrounding area is filled with paths that offer unlimited possibilities for jogging and walking. Step out of the apartment and start a day with a morning walk or jogging along the river Savinja. Sounds of rushing water, rustling of leaves and sweet chirping accompany you on your way through the woods to get a morning coffee and enjoy a view over the city, river and surrounding hills.

Would you like more than only a short walk? The Tourist Association of Laško has prepared thematic paths that reveal special naturalistic gifts, show you cultural and architecture sights and therefore guide you through the history of Laško.

Hiking

Look around and pick a peak you want to conquer. Traditional mountain huts with delicious typical alpine meals await you on the top of almost every hill in the area. You simply have to get a taste of mushroom soup with buckwheat porridge, goulash, jota (stew of beans, potatoes and sauerkraut) or ričet (barley porridge boiled with beans and sausage) and homemade štrudelj for dessert;  you will not regret it!

Tourist Associatic of Laško has prepared a set of the most beautiful alpine paths, which are all marked and nicely settled.
