There are two levels to choose from depending on your ability. The walking trails are easy and carefully selected, without any precarious parts, making them suitable even for less experienced and average walkers. The trail routes mainly go along forest paths and mountain walkways, without any really steep ascents and descents.

Your holiday begins with a round tour through the two Alpine valleys of Ravenska and Makekova Kočna that will constantly treat you to their panoramic views of the rock faces of the Kamnik–Savinja Alps. You can end your tour by a romantic lake where you can enjoy a cold drink. It is possible to extend the tour to the legendary Czech Mountain Lodge.
Day 3: The Logar Valley landscape park
Many consider the Logar Valley to be one of the most beautiful Alpine valleys in Europe. The walking trail through the valley will take you through the most interesting points of the landscape park with only a slight climb at the end to reach the majestic Rinka waterfall. During your walk you will get to know the heritage and tradition of the friendly locals in this remote mountain location. It is possible to extend the tour to a mountain lodge located in the picturesque valley above the waterfall.
Day 4: Panoramic views from Mt. Strelovec
The tour will take you through the typical mountains to the grassy viewing summit of Strelovec. This is an excellent location to enjoy a picnic and have a rest. After taking in the view, you will take an enjoyable descent through the forest back down to your accommodation in the valley.
Day 5: Luče and the River Savinja
A day intended for rest and discovering the area by the River Savinja. A short but attractive journey separates you from Luče, where you will find your accommodation. The journey begins at the natural attraction of Igla, which means needle in Slovenian and is a tall, imposing solitary rock, separated from the surrounding mountain by only a narrow crack.
Day 6: Velika planina
Velika planina, thanks to its exceptional views and well-preserved shepherding heritage, is considered to be the most beautiful of the Slovenian mountain plateaus. It is most lively here in the summer when the shepherds bring in their flocks and, together with the wildflowers, typical architecture of the shepherds’ settlement and the stunning views, create a very special landscape. You will leave the plateau by cable car, continuing your trip by discovering the medieval town of Kamnik.
Day 7: Preddvor
The day begins with a walk up to the Church of St. Jacob above the valley of the River Kokra. This church was used as fortress during the times of the Turkish invasions, but today it is a popular spot for hikers due to its fantastic views. Then comes a descent to lake Črnava, a perfect place to refresh yourself in the summer months
