On the second day of your Slovenia 5 Day itinerary, we recommend visiting Robanov Kot, another valley in the Solčava Region, before heading to Logar.
Visit Robanov Kot
Robanov Kot valley is named after the 800-year-old Roban Farm. Upon entering Robanov Kot, you’ll immediately notice the arrowhead-shaped Mt. Ojstrica, which appears to penetrate the sky, almost with a vengeance.
Robanov Kot is also a designated landscape park, so there are limitations on how far you can drive. Park your car at Govc-Vršnik Tourist Farm, or continue a little bit further to the parking area at Roban Farm.
Robanov Valley Trail to Robanova Planina
At Roban Farm, an easy, flat, and family-friendly trail leads you to Robanova Planina in one-hour. The Robanova alpine pasture is home to an active mountain dairy farm, which is only open in July and August. However, you can walk here at any time.
Eat Lunch at Govc-Vršnik Tourist Farm
After a pleasant walk in the Robanov Kot valley, eat lunch at Govc-Vršnik Farm. This is our favorite place to eat in the whole region. Order “Lunch Govc” (17 EUR), not à la carte. You’ll receive generous platters of vegetables, meats, and dumplings, in addition to soup, salad, and dessert. It’s a Slovenian feast. Enjoy!
Logar Valley: on earth, as it is in heaven
After a sumptuous lunch at Govc-Vršnik, continue your drive to Logarska Dolina. Logar Valley is a protected nature park. Upon entering, you must pay an entrance fee. The fee structure is as follows: motorcycle 5 EUR, car 7 EUR, van 8 EUR, and bus 30 EUR.
If you grew up repeating the Lord’s Prayer, those verses come to life, when you enter Logar Valley. I’m not religious, but I always hear “on earth, as it is in heaven” when we drive into Logar Valley. I know we haven’t seen every valley in the Alps, but I’ll wager this is the most beautiful one.

Eat Dinner at Penzion kmečka hiša Ojstrica
You will not eat the best food of your life here, but you will have the best view. Directly across from the road from Lenar Farm, Hiša Ojstrica offers indoor, and outdoor seating. Sit outside and drink in the magnificent mountain view stretching from Ojstrica to the Kamnik Saddle.
Stay in Lenar Farm in Logar Valley
Lovely Lenar Farm occupies the most peaceful location in the middle of Logar Valley. We just spent a week staying here (our second trip to Lenar Farm) and we fell even more in love with this B&B.
Urška Lenar and her family run this farm with open hearts and you can sense that the moment you arrive. Questions are met with recommendations, ideas, and local knowledge. If you need tips on where to hike, what flower you took a photo of, or if you simply want to learn more about the history of the valley, Urška will happily help.
And, let’s not forget about breakfast. From elderflower-infused water, homemade jams, fruits, and pastries to regional cured meats, cheeses, and eggs, breakfast is always a happy occasion.
Recreational equipment (bikes, hiking poles) is free for guests.
