About Logar Valley
The Logar Valley is one of the most beautiful Alpine glacial valleys in Europe. It extends into the Kamnik-Savinja Alps from the north. A part of the Solčavsko region, tradition and nature have found harmony here and serve as a good example of sustainable development. In addition to agriculture and forestry, tourism offers an opportunity for relaxation in the peaceful ambience of the landscape together with activities such as hiking, cycling, horse riding and photography - the park has received a Future in the Alps Award from CIPRA for the successful management of a protected area.
Natural sights nearby include a Natural History and ethnographical trail, hiking trails and cycle routes for all abilities, alpine and climbing tours, waterfalls, a 1000 year old yew tree, mountain cottages and farmhouses and a cave under the mountain of Olševi that used to be a shelter of ice-age hunters 20,000 years ago. Cultural attractions in the area include the cathedral in Gornji Grad, lots of churches, many museums, collections and exhibitions of art and crafts such as traditional wool products.
The nearby Solčava Panoramic Road is unique in its beauty, taking you along the pearls of the natural and cultural heritage of the Solčava Region, with breathtaking views of peaks and valleys, passing subsistence farms, producing everything that nature offers. Together with its symbol, Krištof the shepherd boy, it traces his lost sheep from the village of Solčava along the trail with twenty unforgettable stops across a large portion of the region, which also includes the Logar Valley, Robanov kot, Matkov kot, and Podolševa. The route leads you through timeless experiences and mysteries surrounding Lintver the dragon and the creation of these mysterious places.
We look forward to being of service.
