If you enjoy hiking in the nature, recreation and good company, you are warmly invited to participate in the hiking campaign “Hiking Laško Trails”. On the organized hikes along the well-maintained and marked themed trails in the Laško municipality, we will explore the stories and beauties of the Laško area.
The hiking campaign »Hiking Laško trails« includes 5 hikes, taking place as following:

Some hikes are traditional and have been taking place for many years whereas others are entirely new. The organizers will provide the hikers with entertainment and pleasant atmosphere and they will show you interesting sites along the way. You will also be offered homemade food and drinks.
If you participate in all 5 hikes, you will receive a badge “Hiking Laško Trails”. As we are convinced that you will be happy to participate in the hikes, we will hand out awards. Everyone who participates in the hikes 3 years in a row will receive a golden award “Hiking Laško Trails” and they will be inscribed in the book of honour “Hiking Laško Trails”.
On the first hike of the year, i.e. the Hike to the peak of Hum, the participants will be issued a card to collect seals on all 5 hikes. At the end of the year, you will receive a badge at the Laško Tourist Information Centre, provided you collected all the five seals.
