This seven day programme includes moderately demanding half to full day tours along marked trails in the heart of the mountains and glacial valleys in two neighbouring areas: Logarska dolina / Solčavsko and Jezersko
Logarska dolina / Solčavsko is an area that attracts visitors with its natural beauty, but it offers even more. Logarska dolina, one of the most beautiful alpine valleys in Europe, is from the north embedded in the chain of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps. Geographically, Solčavsko is a round area along the border between Slovenia and Austria, in the Upper Savinja Valley and in the lap of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps and the Karawanks. The area was recognized as a European Destination of Excellence – EDEN, because of its unique way of combining nature conservation with the life of the locals and the curiosity of visitors from all over the world.
The special feature of the area are three alpine valleys: Logarska dolina, Robanov kot and Matkov kot. Logar Valley and Robanov kot are protected natural landscape parks. Visitors are drawn also by numerous other attractions such as: Potočka Zijalka Cave – an archaeological site from ancient times, Rinka – one of the highest waterfalls in Slovenia, fossils from the Middle Triassic – one of the three sites of vertebrate fossils from the Middle Triassic in the world, great biotic diversity, some of the largest farms in the whole Alpine region, Church of St. Mary of the Snows in Solčava, Center Rinka – a multipurpose center for sustainable development of Solčavsko area, and excellent starting points for a whole range of hiking trails and other outdoor activities.
Destination Jezersko offers excellent opportunities to be active in a truly pristine natural environment. Here you can find more than 60 km of marked and maintained hiking trails of various difficulties. With its very special location, alpine valleys Ravenska Kočna and Makekova Kočna constantly pamper you with panoramic views of the walls of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps.
On the way you discover the natural attractions such as Lake Planšar, the glacier below Skuta, Čedca waterfall and forests, as well as taste the healing mineral water – Jezerska slatina. On pastures you can observe herds of indigenous Jezersko-Solčava sheep and explore Jezersko’s biotic diversity. Due to the different altitudinal zones and diverse geological history here grows close to 1,000 different plant species. Among the cultural heritage stand out centuries old farmhouses, ethnographic museum Jenk’s barracks located in a 16th century house, churches in very specific locations and murals – beautiful and eloquent witnesses of history. We are proud of the fact that in Jezersko you can find the oldest and the youngest rock in Slovenia. The latter is more than 400 million years younger than its older “sister”.
