Destinations

 

Logar Valley

Background to Logar Valley:  Located around 90 minutes drive north of Ljubljana, the Logar Valley is one of Slovenia's best kept secrets. If you're searching for a mountain setting, then Logar will definitely fit the bill. An Alpine glacial valley which extends into the Kamnik-Savinja Alps from the north, it is banked by towering peaks up to 2000m high. The valley offers a stunning setting all year round, ideal for hiking, walking, cycling, climbing and horse-riding Spring to Autumn. Its green pastures and meadows, attractive cottages, forest trails and crashing waterfalls all make this region a big draw for visitors.

 

Ljubljana

Background to Ljubljana: One of Europe's best kept holiday secrets, Ljubljana, capital of Slovenia, makes for a perfect tailor-made holiday. Serving as the country's economic, political and cultural centre it is the gateway to the Balkans. Straddled by a series of river and waterways, it is crossed by more than a dozen bridges, which include the famous Dragon, Triple and Cobbler Bridges. Due to Ljubljana's central position and excellent transport links, it makes for a great base to explore the wider region, including the famous Lake Bled and the Postojna Caves.
