Hiking is one of the most popular forms of enjoying an active holiday. There are enough trails for everyone, ranging from the easiest recreational strolls to the demanding Alpine tours which require experience, suitable mountaineering or climbing equipment and the assistance of a mountain guide. There are instructors available and walking sticks to be rented for the popular version of a simple walk – the Nordic walk.

The hiker’s map of the Zgornjesavska valley shows, describes and suggested hiking trails. There are 20 well-kept and sign-posted trails to be found on the map. The hiker’s map can be obtained from all tourist information offices of Kranjska Gora, Mojstrana and Rateče.

A faster and more active way of enjoying the charms of Kranjska Gora and its surrounding is by bike. You can decide on a leisurely pedalling or on more demanding trips into the heart of the Alpine valleys. For this reason, we have prepared a map of cycling trips in the Zgornjesavska valley, which shows over 200 kilometres of cycling tracks. The map illustrates many well-worth seeing sights and provides the most thorough and perhaps the most attractive way of getting to know this particular part of Slovenia. The cycling map can be obtained from all tourist information offices of Kranjska Gora, Mojstrana and Rateče.

You can sweat and get a suntan on the steep slopes of the Karavanke mountain range. The cycling trail of the three countries starting on the three-country border with Austria and Italy allows you to pass through the valley of Radovna and go for a quick visit of Bled. You can leave the well-kept cycling trails and explore numerous rough terrain routes. The genuine cyclers will not let the ascent of the highest Slovene mountain pass, the 1611 metres high Vršič, escape them.
