Often voted as the most picturesque valley in European Alps, Logar Valley is a paradise for hikers and photographers because of its spectacular vistas in the heart of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps. Directly north of Ljubljana, wedged between the scenic mountains, lies this pearl of natural wonders and tranquillity.
Our journey will take us over the mountains and through a canyon carved by the Savinja river while towering rock formations will greet us from above. We will continue to the very end of northern Slovenia on the Solčava panoramic road, where you can admire view after view - of the valleys below and the steep slopes of the Alps above. The drive leads through grassy pastures dotted with alpine farms and enchanting forests, where you can find natural springs bubbling up out of the rocks.
Upon reaching the start of Logar Valley, you will be welcomed by a fairy-tale backdrop of enchanting meadows and majestic mountains. In this magical place, we will make time for a traditional Slovenian lunch in a cosy mountain hut. After lunch, you will be able to walk around on your own, hike to the second highest waterfall in Slovenia or even rent a bicycle in order to explore this beautiful place at your own pace.
In the afternoon, we will continue across two mountain passes, which will briefly take us through Austria, and stop in Jezersko region, marked by more spectacular mountain views and a small lake, immensely popular among locals for a day trip. If you’d like a quick dip to cool off, the lake is a perfect opportunity.
After our busy day, we will be returning to Ljubljana around 6 PM, leaving you plenty of time for evening activities.
