The Treetop Walk is a forest trail, built at the level of the treetops level rather than on the forest floor, and set on the green hills of the Pohorje alpine massif in Central Styria.

More precisely,  the Treetop Walk is built on Rogla hill with an elevation of 1517 metres, which also hosts one of Slovenia’s most popular ski resorts.

 

The Pohorje Treetop Walk is just over a kilometre long in total and includes a 37-metre high tower with a view of all the surrounding hills, Kamnik-Savinja Alps and even Triglav.

The Walk is fully barrier-free, and hence stroller and wheelchair friendly. The path to the tower climbs gently with a maximum climb of 2-6% and transparent meshes along the sides of the walk ensure perfect visibility for wheelchair users and young children.

There are several information stations on the way, where visitors can learn about the flora and fauna of the environment below them.

Less mobile visitors have the option on obtaining a wheelchair for free at the ticket office.  Dogs are not permitted, and your pet will have to wait for you in the kennel by the entrance.

Each year new content is planned to be added to the existing structure, starting with a 40m-long toboggan, a slide from a tower back to the walkway, expected for spring 2020.

Opening hours are adjusted to the daylight hours. You can find more information on the walk, tickets and opening hours at the Pohorje Treetop Walk’s website.
