Kranjska Gora

Kranjska Gora
A town nestled in the embrace of mountains, full of ethnographic jewels and modern adrenaline sports. It is a popular ski centre in winter and a racing venue for alpine skiers and jumpers. It is also an attractive spot for adrenaline sports buffs, hikers and cyclists. Kranjska Gora is the perfect place for an active family vacation.

Kranjska Gora – a world-renowned alpine and ski resort

Kranjska Gora is a well-known Slovenian ski resort that hosts world-class alpine skiing and ski jumping competitions in winter. Planica is a synonym for ski-jumping milestones and with its modern Nordic Centre, it has become attractive for cross-country skiers too. Tamar, which is a popular excursion destination in all seasons, is a valley nestled near Planica.  

In summer, the Upper Sava Valley attracts cyclists and hikers in particular. Recreational cyclists can ride along the cycling route from Jesenice to Rateče. Those who seek more challenging routes can tackle the Vršič Pass. And visit the Russian Chapel along the way. Mountain bikers can descend along three routes – Robe Twist, Kinder Surprise and Trail 1904.

The valleys of Vrata, Kot and Krma are excellent head trails to ascend the highest peaks of the Julian Alps, including Mt Triglav. A stop at the Slovenian Alpine Museum in Mojstrana is also a must. Ferratas in Gozd Martuljek and Mojstrana offer exceptional challenges for climbers. In winter, visit the only Slovenian ice climbing centre in the Mlačca Gorge. 

Nature abounds in natural beauty spots on the edge or within Triglav National Park – Zelenci is one of the springs of the Sava Dolinka River, Lake Jasna offers an iconic postcard view of Kranjska Gora, and the Peričnik Waterfall is an exceptional attraction on the way to the Vrata Valley.
