Kranjska Gora is a crossing point – if you go through the Vršič Pass you will come to the Soča Valley and then to the sea, or to Tarvisio in Italy, and via the Wurzen Pass you will come to Villach in Austria. Kranjska Gora is the ideal place to relax and recharge your batteries in summer and in winter, with an extensive range of active enjoyment such as hiking, Nordic walking and cycle tours. There are beautiful natural areas waiting to be discovered in and around the Triglav National Park.

Getting thereFrom the Baumgartnerhöhe (919 metres) we follow hiking trail no. 682. This runs partly along the forest road, and parts of it can be shortened by using the steep hiking paths. We go past the former customs hut and at 1,438 metres we reach Slovenia via the Jepca Saddle. We can see the Mittagskogel (2,139 metres) on our left. We go to the west of the Suhi rift valley as far as the Planina Brdca (an Alpine lodge) and from there the trail leads in a westerly direction between the Tislerica and Laskovc mountains, before continuing in a south westerly direction down to Srednji Vrh. Our route then continues on to Frtalez, and then we follow the River Sava as far as Kranjska Gora.
The view along this stretch is repeatedly striking, and Srednji Vrh is truly magical. On the stretch from Srednji Vrh down into the valley we come across a small chapel, which was built in memory of a girl who died here when she was struck by lightning.
