From the Church of the Holy Spirit past the Macesnik farm, we descend along the Jurčef stream to Solčava. At the Rinka Centre, we collect ideas and think about future explorations. Follow the main road along the Savinja river to Igla, and in between, at the entrance to Robanov kot, you can refresh yourself with a drink at the former limestone well.

Cross the Savinja at Igla using a suspension footbridge and follow the forest path along the river to Trbiška zijalka and the Pečovski studenci springs. Continue along the left bank, over the steps cut into the rock, to the bridge and over it, along the river embankment past the camp, then through the ethnic village to the Mountaineering Village of Luče and along the river Savinja to its confluence with the Lučnica.
