From Ojstrica to Logar Valley

2-Day Tour, start from Planina Podvežak, pick-up from Logar Valley

Join us on this two-day tour in the beautiful Kamnik-Savinja Alps above the green Logar Valley and get a taste of the real mountains. On the first day, we pick you up in the Logar Valley and drive up to the trailhead at the Podvežak Plateau. From there we go off to explore Ojstrica and Planjava, the two last big peaks in the farthest east of the Slovenian Alps. If their steep north face above the Logar Valley offers serious climbing tours, the south side, that we take, shows a completely different, more friendly face. You can stop and freshen up on a high-Alpine meadow Korošica right on the way and then continue up on a nice panoramic trail to the top of both peaks. From there, we traverse to the enchanting green meadow Kamnik Saddle and spend the night in a comfortable mountain hut. On the second day, we explore another beautiful peak above the hut, Brana, soak up stunning views of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps, and then descend back down to the Logar Valley with a stop by the plummeting Rinka Falls. The tour is suitable for mountaineering beginners with some degree of physical fitness, while it will absolutely fascinate experienced mountaineers as well.

Itinerary

Day 1:  Planina Podvežak - Ojstrica - Planjava - Kamnik Saddle (hut)

Starting from the Podvežak mountain valley, a nice and easy trail takes us first through the forest to several glades, when it gradually becomes more rocky and passes slopes and plateaus until it reaches a pass between Koroški Vrh on the left and Mala Ojstrica on the right. Sedelce Pass is the definition of picturesque - a big plateau surrounded by big rocky peaks and the burnt-down Korošica Hut somewhere in the middle. From the Sedelce Pass, we'll continue our way towards the peak of Mala Ojstrica, the lowest of the peaks, and then follow a slightly technically more demanding trail to the great peak of Ojstrica, 2,350 m. From there, we follow the ridge and ascend up another scenic peak, the 2,392-m Planjava. From the top of Mt. Planjava we make a 2-h traverse to the beautiful high-Alpine meadow Kamnik Saddle, where we spend the night in a comfortable mountain hut.

Day 2:  Kamnik Saddle - Brana - Rinka Falls - Logar Valley

On the second day, we explore another beautiful peak above the hut, Mt. Brana, soak up stunning views fo the Kamnik-Savinja Alps, and then descend down to the Logar Valley with a stop by the plummeting Rinka Falls.
