Pohorje is or local mountain and we just love it. Its mountain ridge in length of 60 km and raising up to 1500 m. It’s still unspoilt and covered with green woods, with only a few spots when we can feel human presence. It will be 3 days of full impression, visiting all beautiful places hidden deep in woods, riding endless single trails and taking a big dose of green in woods.
