The forces of nature sculpted the Logar Valley deep within the heart of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps and surrounded it with mountains over 2000m high (Krofička, Ojstrica, Planjava, Brana, Turska gora, Rinke, etc.). Today’s picturesque appearance of the Logar Valley was created by a glacier during the last ice age.
The valley is 7km long and has an average width of 250m. It consists of three parts. Log and Plest feature beautiful meadows, while Kot is mostly covered in forests. The area beyond the green curtain of the forest reverberates with the magnificent roaring of the Rinka Falls.
The beauty of the Logar Valley is reflected by the pristine state of the environment and the numerous natural features that are of great interest to nature lovers. The farms, which through centuries have shaped the cultural landscape, have also left their mark on the region. Harmony between man and nature is a value that is rarely found nowadays.
The Logar Valley was declared a landscape park in 1987 because of these very values. It builds its image upon nature-friendly sustainable development and a quality tourist offer. Park measures 2013 km and extends from the valley to the upper ridges of the mountains. The adjacent valley, Robanov kot, which, along with Matkov kot, represents a typical feature of the Solčavsko region – three parallel Alpine glacial valleys – has also been protected as a landscape park since 1987.
Due to its excellent location, it serves as a great starting point for many an interesting trip to the peaks of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps.
