Korošica Plateau

Half-Day Tour, Podvežak Plateau to Podvežak Plateau

Visit Slovenia’s highest lying football playground and join a friendly match against other hikers. Nestled among high mountains, the vast Korošica Plateau and its hospitable mountain hut is a perfect tour for young families and those who wish to take it easy and simply enjoy pristine nature in the Alps. You are also welcome to extend the tour to one of the peaks above Korošica.

Itinerary

Starting from the Podvežak mountain valley, a nice easy trail takes us first through a forest to several glades, when it gradually becomes more rocky and passes slopes and plateaus until it reaches a pass between Koroški Vrh on the left and Mala Ojstrica on the right. Sedelce Pass is the definition of picturesque - a big plateau surrounded by big rocky peaks and the Korošica Hut somewhere in the middle. In the summer, the friendly hut keepers tend to bring out football goals for those who stop by the hut to play a match or two on a grassy field under great peaks. Please note that it's about 2.5 hours to the Korošica Plateau for adults, which should make a 3.5-hour walk up for young families. For those of you who think you could walk some more, we can extend the hike to one of the beautiful peaks above the Korošica Plateau (please let us know beforehand).
