Kamna Gorica ski piste at the foot of the Jelovica high-plateau is very popular with families with children. Next to the small ski lift and a sledding piste, Kamna Gorica ski area is also renowned for it's well-groomed cross-country skiing trails. From underneath the ski piste, cross-country skiing trails for classic and skating technique spread towards the iron forging village Kamna Gorica and up the valley towards the hamlet Lipnica. Cross-country skiing trail leads mainly across the flat snow covered meadows of Lipnica valley, with occasional short climbs up towards the forests of Jelovica high-plateau.  The nearby ski piste and road are not at all disturbing for the peace and serenity of this delightful cross-country ski trail featuring the unique natural and cultural landscape of the Lipnica valley.

Author’s recommendation

Take time for a short walk through the narrow streets of Kamna Gorica.  Due to it's numerous water troughs and small bridges, some refer to Kamna Gorica as the  "Venice of Gorenjska region".

Public transport

Arriva Alpetour provides regular bus connections between Radovljica and Kamna Gorica . Since the buses are mainly used by school children and workers, they are more frequent in the morning and early afternoon. The nearest bus station is Kamna Gorica I, from where there is short (3-5 minutes, 300 meter) walk back alongside the main road to the start of the cross-country skiing trails.

Getting there

Leave the A2 motorway at exits No. 4 (Radovljica) or No.3 (Lesce) and drive on the old regional road alongside the motorway. Look for the intersection right in- between Radovljica and Lesce (signpost: Kropa, Radovljica, Lesce) and drive towards a roundabout decorated by a metal sculpture. Drive straight true (take the second exit) and continue towards a railway underpass (signpost: Kropa). Turn left at the second roundabout (signpost: Kropa) and descend down towards river Sava. Cross the bridge and continue straight ahead (uphill) on the main road towards Lipnica Valley. Pass by the village Zgornje Lancovo and Lipnica and continue straight ahead on the main road towards Kropa. Before reaching Kamna Gorica, you will notice a small ski piste and cross-country skiing tracks on your right hand side. Look for the parking space situated on the right hand side of the road just before the start of the village.

 

Parking

Park on the paved parking area situated on the right hand side of the road, just before the start of the village. If this parking area is full, park on the (unofficial) parking area in-between the main road and the Lipnica stream (situated across the road and 100 meters back towards Lipnica village).
