60 km


60 km Proteini.si Bear Trail

Our queen route repeatedly crosses the well-known Roška footpath – a path marked with a bear’s paw. The start of your race is at Rudniško Lake, and then it quickly takes you towards the mysterious Kočevje forests.

When you leave the urban area of Kočevje, you are quickly surrounded only by pristine nature, which is only disturbed with a few tiny villages and historic remains along the way.

The best part of your race is the sections along the edge of the Rajhenav rainforest. Take your time during those, take in the remarkable trees in all its beauty and listen to the stories they have to tell. We promise you won’t regret it!

The route then takes you across Kočevski Rog plateau and past Kraljica Roga – the most powerful fir tree on the plateau, which rises 51 meters high.

Above the village of Onek, on Lovski vrh, from which can you already enjoy a breath-taking view. At this point, you can already see your finish line at Rudniško Lake, where your highly anticipated refreshment in the lake is waiting for you!

We promise that Kočevsko will more than enchant you and that you’ll be planning your return to these beautiful trails right after your race!

Come and discover this wild but extremely friendly destination!
