The Logar Valley was created by the play of nature deep in the heart of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps. It is surrounded by peaks reaching above 2000 metres (Kroficka, Ojstrica, Planjava, Brana, Turska Gora, Rinka, etc.).
Today’s picturesque image of the Logar Valley was created by a huge glacier during the last Ice Age.
The valley is 7 kilometres long and 250 metres wide. It become a landscape park in 1987.
Besides the valley, the landscape park also encompasses a wreath of mountains, all higher than 2,000 meters (Krofička, Ojstrica, Planjava, Brana, Turska gora, the Rinkas), which embrace this picturesque Alpine oasis. The result of the natural processes are numerous natural attractions in a relatively small area, such as waterfalls (more than 20), glacier formations, alluvial fans, natural windows, karst caves, other typical caves, solitary mountains, screes and glacier boulders.
As a reflection of the favourable living conditions, the picturesque natural park is completed by diverse flora, fauna and habitat types. In the scree and rocky slopes of the Logar Valley we can admire numerous endangered and protected mountain flowers, such as the lady’s slipper orchid, Zois' bellflower, edelweiss, Carniolan lily, auricula, Kamnik orchid and other flowers. In the animal world we can encounter the chamois, ibex, black grouse, western capercaillie, peregrine falcon, and the golden eagle also nests here.
