In the heart of the Kamnik - Savinja Alps, the Logar valley is one of the most beautiful alpine valleys in Europe.
Set among the over 2,000-meter peaks are sunny meadows and pastures, charcoal-makers’ and foresters’ cottages, wooden flumes for transporting logs, and picturesque natural features beside the springs and tributaries of the Savinja River. From behind the green backdrop of beech forest, the impressive roar of the Rinka Waterfall resounds.
The Logar valley Landscape Park is beautiful in every season. In spring, the first flowers appear from the ground through the soft grass, the larch turns green, and the beech leaves burst open. In summer, the gentle green floor of the valley becomes a blossoming meadow bordered by the dark green forest, and above it the sharp peaks of the Kamnik - Savinja Alps pierce the blue sky. In autumn when the larch blazes yellow among the dark green pine just below the rocky cliffs, the time is perfect for quiet walks in the forest solitude. On sunny winter days, nothing is more beautiful than skiing cross-country over the sparkling snowy fields and slopes of the Logar valley
