The Savinja valley is regarded as a true beauty. The world considers it the cradle of green gold - hops, as well as the source of culinary goodies from its pristine nature. You have to discover it. Our region’s pearl is the Logar valley, the “queen” of glacial valleys in Europe that impresses visitors with peaks of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps and its waterfalls, amongst which Rinka, the spring of the Savinja river, firmly stands out.
The Savinja river has been a vivacious center of the valley since the very beginning. It used to be an important source of profit, as it enabled timber rafting and selling products abroad. Today it still provides the necessary water for the produce, growing on its banks, and it has developed into a center for water sports. You will be able to get to know the valley by the Savinja river, its inhabitants, culture and cuisine during the active day of the product River food.
