Winter fairytale: The Logar valley (Slovenia)

Last weekend we headed to Logar valley and we fell into a true winter fairytale. On the way, we had this amazing view on church of Saint Ahacij (village called Kališe).2017-roadtriplogarska_fototomazsinigajda_001hdrSnow was fresh and the hour was quite early. It was so peaceful, calm and beautiful. We stopped there to make a photo and continued our journey.

This mountains are part of Kamnik-Savinja Alps. This “U” formation on the right side of the photo is “Kamniško sedlo” and on the left you can see mountain “Planjava.”

Our first trip was to Rinka waterfall. The road was snowy and quiet and the sun was shining – perfect winter day. We haven’t met a lot of hikers there, just a few. The path is easy and simple. It is suitable for kids and families too. Photos from the path:

At the end of the road there was a magnificent view. The waterfall is partly frozen (it looks like a big throne :)). In summer there is a lot of water walling down, but now there was this tiny little waterfall over a massive ice formation.

The next day we wanted to visit another great destination “Potočka Zijavka”. This is a cave where some archeological artefacts were found (bones of a cave bear, remains of caveman life and rituals …) We started walking, but the snow was too high for hiking, there was no path, just deep layer of snow.  Besides, we saw some bear footprints in the snow! 🙂

So we have just a photo of a starting point – church Saint Spirit (Sv. Duh) in a village called “Podolševa”.2017-roadtriplogarska_fototomazsinigajda_037_fhdr

We wandered around a bit and had a great dinner at “Kmečka hiša Ojstrica” – CLICK. We ended a great exploring day  here in a cosy place with some great food and homemade herbal tea near a warm fireplace. Loved it!img_20170225_185025
