Discover the magic of the Oravian nature, which is worth seeing for your own eyes. Trekking is the best way how to get to know the beauty of the natural panorama of the Orava. Take a tour through Orava, which offers hiking trails both for less-capable and more experienced active leisure enthusiasts.
Roháčske plesá (Roháče lakes)
A moderately-intensive hike that begins in Zverovka and leads you through Roháčska and Spálená valleys. The 9 km long route, marked with a red sign, is estimated to take five and a half hours and offers a magnificent view of lakes in the Oravian nature.
Many trails lead to the top of Skorušina to choose from the least demanding to the most challenging track. You can start from Habovka or Zábiedovo along the blue and red signs; from Trstená along the green sign; from Brezovica along the yellow, green and red sign or from Oravice along the red sign. Skorušina is the highest hill in the Skorušinské Hills. The viewing tower on the top offers a beautiful panorama view of the entire Orava.
Juráňova dolina (Juráňova valley)
A track in the Juráňová Valley is not a difficult one – even families with children can do it. The Juráňov brook, twisting along the valley, has significantly shaped the distinctive character of the valley. The most attractive lower part of the valley is called Tiesňavy, famous for its steep rock walls and formations called “giant pots”. A tourist trail marked with red signs leads through Tiesňavy from Oravice. There are several instructional panels installed on the trail to show history, plant life, animal life, and iron ore mining in this area.
