Mountain bikers are invited to the Pohorje plateau for a one- day or two-day trip, with the two-day trip also taking in the Drava Valley. More information is available at www.mopa.si.

For those with plenty of vacation time, the Slivnica Mountaineering Association has organised an eight-day 200-kilometre hike to Mount Triglav. Eight hours of hiking per day is scheduled. More information is available at www.pdslivnica.com.

Those with just a day to spare but plenty of energy can wade up the Iška, a picturesque river south of Ljubljana. The wading from Volčje Lake to the Vintgar Gorge is expected to take about five hours. Additional information is available at http://www.borispotepuh.si/Koledar_potovanj.html.
