You can rent bikes at the information center. Horseback riding is also a possibility here.
What to do in Logar Valley?
1. Walking/biking through the Logar Valley
There is a lot of hiking trails starting in Logar Valley, but the most famous one is the trail through the Logar Valley. It’s 7 kilometers long and it will take you around 3 hours to reach the end. However, the trail is easy as it’s mostly flat.
2. Visit Rinka Waterfall
Next up is the trail to Rinka Waterfall. You can get to the end of the valley by car, and then it takes about 10 minutes of easy hiking to get to the waterfall. Rinka is amongst the highest waterfalls in Slovenia, about 90 meters high. A cafe clinging to a rocky crag is just next to the waterfall. It offers beautiful views of the waterfall and its surroundings.
3. Hike from Rinka Waterfall to Okrešelj
If you’re up for some more hiking, continue on the mountain trail from Rinka Waterfall to Okrešelj. There you can refresh yourself with drinkable water from the source of river Savinja. The trail is moderately difficult, and it takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
What are the prices and opening hours for Logar Valley?
If you’re coming with a motor vehicle, you have to pay an entrance fee. It is 7 € for cars and 8 € for vans. Their working hours in the summertime are from 8 am to 4 pm (approximately).
PRO TIP: If you come outside working hours, you don’t have to pay.
PRO TIP #2: Sleeping in campers overnight is forbidden. We still did it for one night (as some others did too), but the next day all campers got a kind note asking not to do it. So if you get one, don’t risk it as you can get a fine.
