The mountain hut stands below the southern foothills of the Smrekovec peak at a height of 1375 m. Passing the hut leads the Slovenian mountain crossing, which comes from the direction of Slemen and continues along the Smrekovo mountain range. Hikers can go from different directions. You can also reach a hut with a car from the direction of Ljubno or from Šaleška or Koroška. At the cottage there are children's playgrounds and a facility with extensive information about the entire Smrekovo mountain range, which is classified in the so-called. Natura 2000, the so far the largest nature conservation program of the European Community for the protection of wildlife and their habitats. Smrekovec is also the only volcanic mountain in Slovenia. Many people do not know that its time was an active Smrekovec volcano, so we find it far in the soil of rocks that are the product of lava or ash. Spruce vulcanism was active about 30 million years ago in the geological periods of tertiary: oligocene and miocene. From the house the view is a bit limited, for which we will be rewarded if we climb from the hut to the top of the same peak - Smrekovec. The home is permanently open during the summer and otherwise during the weekends. Good food and hospitable staff. You are welcome.
