Description of the day trip

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.

Not many companies offer the tour here and we saw before coming to Slovenia that it is such a beautiful place. The panoramic road drive was a nice surprise, we didn't even know you can do that so high in the mountains. We really liked to drink from the natural springs. The stops we made in the wilderness were unbelievable. Truly worth going.

What a beautiful part of Slovenia, everyone should visit here. Everywhere you turn, there is a picture-perfect view or stream or river or lake… Gorgeous! I now want to come back and stay in a hotel with a jacuzzi. Lovely!

Lots of driving but so worth it. It's like Switzerland without the prices. Beautiful nature and friendly locals. I booked this trip because our guide on the trip to Bled told us it's a must see, and she was right!

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do we meet for the day trip?

There are 4 designated pickup and drop-off locations that we use in downtown Ljubljana (see the options when booking). Your driver will be driving between multiple pickup locations, so we kindly ask you to allow a 20-minute window for your pickup, although we will do our best to be there on time. In case you would like to be picked up / dropped off at a different location, we can accommodate that with a surcharge of 9€/booking.

Is there lunch at a restaurant or do I have to bring my own?

You have the option of both. We have a time slot reserved for lunch on each tour, always somewhere with (usually local) restaurants handy. That said, you can always pack your own picnic lunch and eat it wherever and whenever you like. This might sometimes even save time in order to fit a bit of extra sightseeing into your day.

How fit do I need to be for Logar valley and Kamnik trip?

The best thing about our day trips is that they can be tailored to your own level of fitness. Most of the tours are designed with different activities available, so the choice is entirely yours. Please consult the difficulty section for a specific day trip in the Important Notes section to see what the difficulty level of the tour and particular activity is.

I am travelling on a budget - what if I can’t afford all the extras?

Don’t worry. Our day trips are planned with everyone in mind. If you find an entrance fee too expensive, or you are unsure if you are willing to spend so much of your budget on entrance fees, our guides will always have some free alternatives ready for you. From taking a short hike and finding that perfect photo opportunity, to relaxing in a beautiful spot, we have got you covered.

Will I have some time to myself?

If you want to, sure! We are well aware that some people love to stay in groups while others prefer some more alone time on their trip. We wanted to give you the opportunity to do things your way. It is your holiday, after all! As long as you respect the group timings and locations designated by your guide, please feel free to customize your itinerary and create your own adventure!

What should I wear for the day trip? Do I have to bring anything with me?

It is important to dress for the season. Slovenia has all 4 seasons, so please check the weather forecast before the day trip regarding temperatures and rainfall. When you are close to the Alps, the weather can change fairly quickly, so your best bet is to always bring an extra layer. We recommend shoes you will be comfortable in.

I have food restrictions. Are there restaurants for me?

It really depends on the level of your restriction. Vegetarian options are fairly easy to find in Slovenia, but vegan dishes, on the other hand, are extremely hard to come by in rural areas of the country and in smaller towns. Please note, that the places where we stop off at for lunch are often traditional and may have difficulties accommodating you outside of their standard menu. We suggest you keep this in mind.

How do the “extras” work?

There is so much to do in Slovenia, so we wanted to give you the option of choosing exactly how you would like to spend your time here. Which is why we have compiled a list of popular activities in the areas of your visit and categorized them as extras. Therefore, the choice of which and how many you would like to experience is entirely up to you. We set up some of the most popular activities in the areas of your visit and listed them as extras. The choice of how many and which you would like to do is entirely yours. When you arrive to a destination, such as Lake Bled, the itinerary always allows for any additional activities you might want to do, like visiting Bled Castle or taking a traditional boat ride to the island. You can book all of your chosen extras in advance. Your guide will confirm the bookings with you on the tour and make sure you know everything you need to know. It is always exciting when people come away from the same trip enriched by different adventures and can share and compare their experiences along with the tons of photos they have taken.
