Description

At the gate to the Alps, there lies an enchanting Logar valley.

Visiting this place is a way to relax in nature. We'll stretch our legs hiking the scenic path, marveled by nature beauties and the scent of flower-spiced mountain air.

The colorful Arboretum of Volcji Potok is one of Slovenia's best sights to see for botany lovers with endless species of flowers, trees, bushes, fishponds, botanic exhibitions, workshops, thematic parts, and the panoramic tower.

Program (10 hours)

In a quite short time, we get from the city environment of Ljubljana to the unspoiled Logar valley.
Embraced by mountains we have a peaceful hike. There are huge glacial-erratic rocks; there is the actual source of the Savinja river while in between the range's and the coal maker's house will pop up as well as tourist farms and pastures. This hiking trip ends at the magnificent Rinka waterfall, yet another majestic natural creation.

After this inspiring experience, an optional addition to the tour is the biggest place of flowers in Slovenia.
In the vivid botanic park of Arboretum Volčji Potok, we can continue to admire nature in all its grace, this time in cooperation with human beings.
The installations and exhibitions always leave a deep impression on visitors.
Have a look here for the admission fee and the details about the park.

This was our second trip with Bart, he was exactly on time for our pickup in Rijeka.
He helped us decide on the trip destinations and we had another wonderful day seeing the must see tourist spots and then the real Croatia in the small hilltop villages! He took us to a great cafe for our morning coffee and a fantastic local restaurant for truffles and pasta etc. for lunch!
Bart gave lots of insight into Croatia its history and the way they live! We loved the day!

By email exchange from Australia with Jernej, who was to be our guide and driver, we put together a private multi day custom tour of eastern Slovenia.
Collecting us (2 people) from our hotel in Zagreb we were driven to Ljubljana , then to Lake Bled via Vintgar Gorge. Our tour took in the Vrsic mountain pass, Soca River, Brda wine region ( staying in Smarto), Kobarid War Museum, Predjama Castle, Skocjan Caves Lipica Stud Farm ( staying in Piran) and finally transferring to Rovinj via Istrian hill towns.
In all our travels, Jernej selected routes that showcased the wonderful landscapes and small villages in Slovenia. Most of the roads were through the rural farming areas with little road traffic. This enhanced our experience and appreciation of Slovenia.
Jernej, with his many connections gave us some wonderful insights into everday life in Slovenia that a tourist is rarely afforded.His extensive knowledge and experience stimulated many interesting discussions. In addition we were treated to an improptu lunch and wine tasting in the wonderful Jelenic Winery, another lunch and farm tour with one of his cousins (Viljem) and his family, and even a brief visit to his mother's 80th birthday party. And we can't help but mention our off road forest experience. This was a real bonus!
The multi day tour arrangements went seamlessly .Both the transport and accommodation were excellent.The tour was very well organized and efficient.
Jernej's personal approach was very engaging and stimulating throughout our tour exhibiting his extensive knowledge and experience of Slovenia and his great sense of humor.
For us this delivered a wonderful and memorable experience of Slovenia.
We would highly recommend this company led by the remarkable manager Jernej Zakelj.

Many, many thanks to Jernej for the fantastic tour yesterday.
We arranged for a private tour, and we hoped to see my grandparents’ hometowns.
No only did Jernej find the hometowns, he found their baptismal records, my grandpa’s twin brother’s grave, and even some long lost cousins that I’ve heard about but never met! We not only met them, but had dinner with them, and their families!
Again, thank you, Jernej! Your went over and above our expectations.
