The area is ideal for almost all types of sport. Walking, running and other types of ecotourism are possible in the village as well as in the region. Mountainous surface and beautiful countryside provide wonderful chances for almost every sport. Summer and winter sports could be done in here.

Ski-resort Bílá provides possibilities for skiing as well as for ski-running. There are two ski-running routes. The route A reaches Klokočov and you can easily continue from two places in Klokočov: Konečná, Doroťanka and Biely Kríž.


Our culture is an important part of our lives. We support all activities connected with our traditions. There is a folk group singing the songs from the region of the Upper Kysuce. They sing the song in the dialect of the village. Some traditional trades could be still found in the village, e.g. wood engraving, basket-making, Easter egg making and embroidering.

The village is also very well known from the work of Pavol Hrtús Jurina, Slovak writer. The communal representation started the competition Jurina´s autumn, in which pupils and young people present their work connected with ecology and countryside. Jurina´s work described the village in the beginning of the 20th century and life in the village. His work is strongly connected with the village and his descriptions are precise.

Another writer, who deals with the life and the traditions of the village, is Jozef Marec. His work is influenced by magic realism and it is written in the regional dialect of the Upper Kysuce. It is connected with the development of the village and with some regional legends.

The area of Klokočov belongs to the CHKO Kysuce (Protected Environmental Area). The area lies on the meeting point of the mountain ranges Javorníky and Moravsko-Sliezske Beskydy. The project of the area was approved on 23rd May 1983. The area consists of two areas: the west part and the east part. The area is characterised by changing of valleys and mountain ranges and most of them is covered by forests and the agricultural area varies from the agricultural land to the agricultural land with dispersed settlement.

The structure of environment reminds a mosaic with dispersed settlement, forests, pastures and meadows. Most of the agricultural land was changed to meadows with bushes. Some of the areas have not been changed and they belong to the most precious parts of the area. They were announced as small protected areas, which were given special protection, e.g. Klokočovské skálie (Klokočov´s Rocks), Veľký Polom.
The area consists of sandstone and clay. Klokočovské skálie is mostly sandstone rock 300 metres long and 15 – 25 metres high. It is situated in Hlavice settlement (between settlements Ostružie and Zajacovci) and it is morphologically unique. The total area is 15,12 acres.

During the geological research, there was a mineral spring found in Klokočov on the left riverside of Predmieranka. The spring included sulphuric hydrogen, but it disappeared. Also an oil well was found in Klokočov, but the efficiency was very low.

The most outstanding objects to be found in Klokočov are round rocks. The rocks, stony apples as they are called by local inhabitants, were brought to village from the stone pit in Kornica. The rocks appeared during the blasting of a stonewall. Two rocks, perimeter 2,2966 ft, stayed in the centre of Klokočov near the crossroad to Bílá. Other rocks were brought by inhabitants to their gardens.
