Hearty meals go down best after outdoor activities. At the Smrekovec Mountain Lodge, they are well aware of this, and offer simple pot meals such as Ajdovi žganci (Buckwheat spoonbread), štruklji (cottage cheese rolled dumplings), apple strudel and fruits of the forest desserts. Whether you come by on foot or by bicycle, ascending the dormant volcano from various routes is an enjoyable and rewarding experience. Smrekovec is also a great starting point for bike and hike tours to other peaks.
