Numerous walking trails offer opportunities to discover hidden corners of unspoiled nature and wonderful views of the surrounding valleys and hills. If you want to escape from the (too) fast everyday life and the hot city streets, then Golte is the perfect location for a relaxing break for two in the summer.
The Golte landscape park offers many activities in the summer
Regardless of whether you are a fan of sports and recreation, or you enjoy your vacation with a beautiful view and a good book, Golte offers the perfect place to relax in the embrace of unspoiled nature in the summer.
Sports enthusiasts will find plenty of opportunities for walking and hiking, while cycling enthusiasts and those who prefer more extreme activities like zip-lining or skydiving will also find something to do.
Even those of you who prefer to spend your holidays in a calmer way will surely find a quiet corner on Golte, where you can enjoy a beautiful view, a refreshing drink or a good book. In any case, Golte is an excellent destination for a vacation for two in the summer, as the location offers everything you need for a romantic trip.
Below you will find some ideas of what to do if you visit Golte for the weekend. In the summer, the visit is even more pleasant, as the temperature on the plateau is much more moderate than in the valley or in the cities.
Before you leave Mozirje and head towards Golte, we suggest that you set aside some time for visiting Mozirski gaj. It is open every day between 9:00 and 19:00 . Visitors can admire the beautiful plants, flower beds and the open-air museum. After visiting Mozirski gaj, we suggest you take a walk through Mozirje and enjoy a romantic dinner for two.
If you are a fan of pizza, the restaurant Pri Peku will certainly not disappoint you, but if you want to really spoil your better half, visit the Lesnika restaurant, where you will be impressed by the ambiance, superb cuisine and friendly service.
After the dinner in Mozirje, the road through Šmihel nad Mozirjem will lead you to the Golte plateau. Upon arrival to the apartment, you will find a welcome package waiting for you. We suggest that you sit on the balcony, at least for a few moments, and fill your lungs with the fresh mountain air.
We suggest starting your Saturday morning with breakfast on the balcony. Golte is covered in a lush forest in the summer, so you can enjoy the view of nature and birds singing while sitting on the balcony. Make yourself a cup of coffee and surrender to the relaxing embrace of nature.
After your morning coffee and breakfast, you will definitely be looking forward to exploring all of the mountain trails offered by Golte. In the summer, you have the opportunity to discover new views and hidden corners at every turn. Follow the signs and head along the Rabbit path towards Lake Trije ploti.
Lake Trije ploti and the surrounding meadows are an excellent location for a romantic picnic for two. Bring a picnic blanket, some snacks and a good book. Choose the spot by the lake you like best, spread the blanket and forget all your worries. Don’t be surprised if you are visited by a horse or a curious cows that graze freely in the Golte landscape park in the summer.
If you wish, you can also visit the Trije ploti cottage, which is located right next to the lake. Treat yourself to a cup of coffee, a refreshing drink or opt for one of the local mountain delicacies that you can find in their offer. On the terrace of the cottage, you can comfortably sit in a lounger and enjoy the wonderful view.
When you are ready to continue, you can decide whether you want to follow the Rabbit trail or you can choose the Wild Rooster Trail (Pot po Golte). Both will lead you on a walk past the many sights that you can enjoy in Golte. You can read more about the various routes that lead you across the Golte in the article Hiking trails.
At the end of the day, it’s time to indulge in relaxation for two. Wellness Golte is located in the immediate vicinity of the apartments. There you can choose between various massages, saunas or simply enjoy the indoor and outdoor pools. You can read more about the wellness offer here.
(We offer guests of our apartments a 10% discount on all wellness services at Hotel Montis.)
Treat yourself to an ultimate lazy Sunday morning. Find a cozy corner in the surrounding meadows and enjoy the sunshine. If lounging in the sun is not your thing, and would prefer to spend your time more actively, you can take a walk to the top of Boskovec (you will find a detailed description of the path in the article Hiking trails).
After descending from Boskovec, you can go to Mozirska koča for lunch (the walk from our apartments to Mozirska koča will take about 10 minutes), where you will be able to sample local delicacies. In their offer you will find mushroom soup, goulash, “ješprenj”, sausage, “žganci” and more. Of course, lunch is not complete if you don’t treat yourself to homemade deserts such as “štruklji” or “štrudelj”.
We believe that after such a weekend you will wish you could extend your stay for at least another day. Take a look at your calendar and book the next date when you will visit Golte. Summer or winter, we believe you will keep coming back to the embrace of unspoiled nature.
