Best way to explore Logar Valley

You can explore this area by foot, bike, or car. There are many parking locations, and you choose the one that suits your needs the best. I would recommend riding a bike here as the views around are just stunning, and this is a perfect option if you don’t have that much time in your schedule. You can rent bikes at the information center. Horseback riding is also a possibility here.

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.

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.

Is Logar Valley worth visiting?

Put visiting Logar Valley on your list as you will enjoy the views so much. It’s a great place to relax and enjoy nature. It’s suitable for everyone: friends, couples, families with children. To explore the main attractions, one full day is enough. If you want to do it more thoroughly, take a few days.
