This laid-back area doesn't provide too many big-name tourist attractions, but if you are a nature lover, there are secluded forests that allow hiding from civilisation for many days.
Most commonly from Ruzomberok.
Because only relatively small (but long) villages are in the area, thus also the public bus connections aren't ideal - while timely, they only operate a few times a day.
- 1 Ruzomberok-Korytnica cycle path (Start at the bridge between the streets Krčméryho and Šoltésovej, continue along the Revúca river.). A bike road in place of former "small train" track, mostly flat - it's a nice all-day long trip for families, as you can avoid the main road on most of it. Korytnica is a formerly famous spa area, currently somewhat degraded. There are some restaurants and mineral water springs in the area.
- Hike to 2 Prašivá or Veľká Chocuľa peaks in Low Tatras (Start in Liptovská Lúžna or Korytnica). The hike up is quite steep for an hour or two.
- 3 Salatín peak (From Liptovská Lúžna, approx. 2.5h one way.). A peak with good views, the ascend is somewhat steep near the peak.
- Relax at 4 Gothal aquapark. A relatively small aquapark with a pool, few whirpools, wellness, bowling and minigolf. Also pizza available.
- Fishing at 5 Revuca river. Pretty popular area amongst locals - during summer, many groups of people spend weekends here in tents, relaxing, rafting the (rather cold) river etc.
Great Fatra (and its edges) provides a few skiing areas:
- 6 Smrekovica (From Ružomberok, turn into Podsuchá and go up the valley.). A secluded and small one, only 400 m.
- 7 Donovaly. Not in Great Fatra nor Liptov, but right at its edge. You can spend a few days here, esp. because there is plenty of hotels and non-ski activities (e.g. park for kids).
In Korytnica, there are several mineral water springs - if that's your thing. The water is also commercially used.
