Kranjska Gora – Ski and cosmopolitan centre

It is due to the world cups Vitranc and Planica that the winter resort of Kranjska Gora has become so famous. In Kranjska Gora and its surroundings the lively adventures of the Julian Alps are waiting for you. There are countless adventures you can try, from an active holiday to a peaceful discovering of nature and the cultural heritage. You can uncover the mystery of well-being in the rich wellness offer, attend business and social meetings or take your family to explore the mystical past of the Zgorenjesavska valley.

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.

You can take a cycle trip around the Julian Alps with the round trip leading from Kranjska Gora via Bled, Bohinj, Tolmin, Kobarid, Bovec and Vršič back to Kranjska Gora. This cycle ride, a round trip of 232 kilometres, can be completed either in five separate stages or on five separate days.

For those looking for their surge of adrenalin, Kranjska Gora offers the Bike Park and its numerous pleasures – freeriding, the adrenaline-filled freeriding over jumps, tables, seesaws and other obstacles. Take the Vitranc 1 ski lift to come to the start of the Bike Park and experience the ride of your life.

In Kranjska Gora you will wake up to a beautiful day. Youth Hostel Barovc is on the Outskirts of the Triglav National Park, above the Jasna lakes and right at the foothills of the Julian Alps is a paradise for hikers, skiers, snowboarders, cyclists, climbers, nature lovers, adrenaline enthusiasts … Hostel Barovc is much more than just another lodging place. It is the story of passionate and enthusiastic young people. It is the fulfilment of a lifelong dream. The dream, that we wish to share with you -their future guest.
