Adventures on Kolpa river, in Solčavsko region and Laško

Slovenia is green, active and healthy. Even if you use the best binoculars, you will have hard time finding a location where a greater number of different sceneries of nature and life would intertwine. In one active weekend, you can paddle down the Kolpa river, have a toast with your friends in the town of Laško and rise up high in the air at the end.

Slovenia is green, active and healthy. Even if you use the best binoculars, you will have hard time finding a location where a greater number of different sceneries of nature and life would intertwine. In one active weekend, you can paddle down the Kolpa river, have a toast with your friends in the town of Laško and rise up high in the air at the end.

Active and green stories of the Kolpa river

The green beauty of the Kolpa river is a great venue for active adventures. When the day becomes lively, grab the oars and explore the unspoilt nature. Rent a raft or canoe and paddle down the bends and rapids of the Kolpa river. If you feel you don`t have enough experience, we recommend an organised tour. Others can simply cut water at their own pace. The Kolpa river is quite calm, which makes it suitable for anyone who has mastered at least the basic techniques. You should definitely make a stop for swimming and bird watching or observing other animals along the river bank. The winding course of the Kolpa river is full of love and can enchant anyone. We recommend that you spend the night in one of the many beautifully designed camps on the river banks or book your stay at a tourist farm.

Honey and health in Laško

Each new day brings new opportunities for summer adventures and green energy. In Laško, you can enjoy a tasty snack which will give you energy for new ventures. The main ingredient is honey, produced by traditional, century old methods and with the love of beekeeping. Have you ever experienced the healing power of apitherapy? You can try it by visiting a beehive, where you can breathe in, smell and hear the lives of diligent bees. Besides other areas, these diligent Slovenian workers fly over the Posavje hills. You can explore the green spots on a guided Nordic walking tour organised by the Thermana Laško spa complex. The healing thermal water will make you feel like royalty. You can choose among honey massages, beer wellness bath and other special treatments that will revitalise your body after a long and active day spent in nature.

Hospitality at the Logar Valley

The Solčavsko region offers more green natural treasures than you could visit in one day. First, refresh yourself at one of the mountain huts at the heart of the Logar Valley. Put on your hiking boots and head towards the most beautiful peaks across pastures and past the idyllic mountain farms. You can take the path running by a fairytale cottage, which is great for children, whereas the better fit hikers can go to the Matkov kot Valley where Matkov škaf (Matko’s pail) is located – a natural attraction in the form of a snowy crater. While in Solčavsko, you can decide to watch the sunset from the air during a tandem skydiving jump, which is definitely one of the most beautiful adventures. You will probably never forget the moments spent above the Logar Valley, which is one of the most beautiful glacial valleys in Europe.
