Kranjska Gora, Slovenia

Enjoy a ride through the Upper Sava Valley, across bridges over the Sava River, with magnificent views of the Julian Alps. The route to Mojstrana is fully paved and follows one of the most beautiful and longest cycling routes in Gorenjska – from Jesenice to the Belopeška Lakes. It is named after the sadly passed Slovenian cyclist Jure Robič and runs along a disused railway line – part of the D-2 cycling route linking Croatia and Italy.

One of the beautiful views along the cycling route to Mojstrana

Cycling route Kranjska Gora – Mojstrana cycling route follows the Sava River along the route of the former railway. The cycle path is close to traffic and, as it does not contain any major climbs or descents, it is really suitable for families with small children.

From the Reset Apartments, turn left along the cycling route to Kranjska Gora, ride through the center straight past the church, and continue downhill past the fire station all the way to the bypass. Here you cross the bridge over the Pišnica River and stay on the road until you reach the cemetery, where the cycling route starts. From here on, miles of unspoiled nature, the coolness of spruce forests, and unforgettable views of the mighty Julian Alps await you. The route passes by the village of Martuljek, along the Sava River, over numerous bridges and several small resting places where you can relax or have a picnic.

For mountain bikers

If you are a mountain biking enthusiast, you can leave the cycling route in the village of Martuljek and join the regional road where you turn left at the turn-off for Srednji vrh. You will have to climb up to the village of Srednji vrh and on to Blekova planina and the mountain pass below Trupej, which is also the highest point of the tour. Return via Grajščica and Kesišče and continue onwards all the way to the village of Belca.

Mojstrana as a starting point for longer cycling trips

  • Continue through the Radovna valley past Lake Kreda to Lake Bled
  • Continue through the Vrata valley, past the Peričnik waterfall to the home of Jakob Aljaž
  • Circular route to Jesenice and onwards through many villages of the municipality of Žirovnica

You can choose to visit the Slovenian Alpine Museum as your cycling destination or continue up the Vrata Valley, see the Peričnik Waterfall, or have a stew at the Jakob Aljaž House. For those with a lot of stamina, we recommend that you continue through the Radovna valley, past Jezero Kreda, all the way to Jezero Bled, or even further to Lake Bled. You can also drive to Jesenice and on through many villages of the municipality of Žirovnica – along the cultural heritage trail, and return along the trail to Jezero Bled and the Radovna valley. The circular route Mojstrana – Jesenice – Žirovnica – Bled – Radovna Valley is extremely long and suitable only for sporty cyclists who like to cover long distances.

Slovenian Alpine Museum

The Slovenian Alpine Museum is a must-see. It contains a rich collection of historical artefacts and an extensive specialist library. It reminds visitors of the importance of mountaineering in Slovenia with a variety of photographic and archival material. You can see the permanent exhibition, learn about the historical development of mountaineering in Slovenia, and choose from a variety of souvenirs and books with mountaineering content in the shop. An introductory film and eleven different sections with challenges, tests and tasks add variety to the experience. If you collect all the stamps along the way, there’s a prize waiting for you at the end.

Kranjska Gora, Slovenia

The fairytale winter landscape around Kranjska Gora is the perfect terrain for recreation and enjoying the outdoors, with around 40 km of well-maintained cross-country ski trails running from the Martuljek Forest to Planica and Tamar. The trails have several levels of difficulty and are suitable for beginners, families and the more experienced. If you are going to get on cross-country skis for the first time, we recommend that you follow the cross-country ski courses offered by the local ski schools. Equipment is also available for rent at the many ski rent shops in the area.

In Planica, you can ride through the world-famous cross-country skiing events that take place every year in the beautiful valley below Ponce Mountains. The events are renowned for their good organization and a large number of visitors, which was instrumental in winning the Nordic World Ski Championships in 2023. The Championships have made history as one of the biggest sporting events in the whole of Slovenia.

Nordic skiing in Planica has been developing continuously since the beginning of the last century, culminating in the complete renovation of all ski jumps and the construction of a modern Nordic Centre, which Planica really deserves. The sport is also the lifeblood of the locals and of the nearby village of Rateče, where tourism has recently been strongly developing.

Cross-country skiing is becoming increasingly popular

In recent years – it has become a leading discipline alongside ski flying, as more and more attention has been focused on building new cross-country skiing trails and maintaining the quality of the existing ones, as the unspoiled nature and the backdrop of the mighty mountains of the Julian Alps – Ponce Mountains – have led to a huge increase in the number of visitors every year. Efforts have also been made to ensure an adequate number of car parks, which are a growing problem due to the high number of visitors.

Suitable for beginners and professionals alike the slopes from Kranjska Gora past Podkorn to Rateče are mostly sloping and run along a cycle path just below the ski slopes. There are a few short breaks due to the crossing of roads and ski slopes, and from Rateče to Planica it runs through forests, meadows, and forest glades in the back part. From Planica onwards, there are groomed trails all the way to the end of the picturesque Tamar valley (from Rateče to the Tamar lodge, the trail is about 7 km long and is a bit more challenging due to the 260 m ascent). In Planica itself, there are over 25 km of groomed cross-country skiing trails at an altitude of between 800 and 1,100 meters.

If there is enough natural snow, there are also trails in the Gozd Martuljek, Mojstrana, and Zgornja Radovna. You can also go for a recreational run in the evening, as there is a circular track behind the Hotel Kompas, which is illuminated with floodlights. The Planica Nordic Centre also has an underground hall with artificial snow on which cross-country skiing is possible even in summer.

Ideal for families with children!

Kranjska Gora is a famous ski center with an extremely long history. It lies on the outskirts of the Triglav National Park, with wonderful views of the Upper Sava Valley and beautiful mountain peaks of the Julian Alps and Karavanke mountain range. The place is easily accessible by car from practically all sides and is known as one of the best family ski resorts in this part of Europe due to its extraordinary location right next to the ski slopes and its position near the Austria and Italy border (triple border). Unlike other ski resorts, you don’t need a long drive with a gondola to access the ski terrains. The ski resort is only a few minutes walk from the center of the village, so you will always have everything at hand, from your accommodation, shops, swimming pools, ice rinks, wellness centers to countless inns and restaurants.

The ski season in Kranjska Gora usually lasts from mid-December until mid-March. Skiing and related activities are the lifeblood of the whole town, as Kranjska Gora offers plenty of fun and everything you’ll need on your winter break. The ski resort itself is home to the headquarters of renowned ski schools, and you can rent quality skis and equipment from one of the many ski rental shops located practically on the ski resort itself.

Ski terrain

The ski area is between 813 and 1600 m above sea level and is almost entirely covered by artificial snow, so the pistes are always fresh and well-groomed. In total, there are more than 30 km of pistes. The terrain is suitable for all levels of skiers, with only 2.5 km of pistes marked as “difficult pistes” – mostly competition pistes in Podkoren for professional skiers.

So whether you’re a beginner, recreational skier, or snowboarder, you will find something for yourself amongst the many terrains. If you’d like to take on more challenging slopes, head to the Podkoren side, which has been hosting the Alpine Ski World Championships for more than 50 years. In 2023, a new double chairlift, Vitranc 2, is under construction, which will take you to more than 1,600 m above sea level, but be warned, the terrain from the top of Vitranc is extremely steep and requires more skiing skills.

The capacity of the lifts is large and the slopes are very wide, so the crowds on the slopes themselves are not too bad. The biggest crowds are usually at the snow beach, where most people hang out, a little less on the Vitranc 1 chairlift, and the least crowded are usually on the Podkoren side, except for Velika Dolina, where the terrain is much more challenging. All in all, there are 4 four-seater lifts, two-seater lifts, and 13 different lifts in operation, with a total capacity of around 20,000 skiers per hour.

The ski slopes end with the ski terrain in the Velika Dolina (Podkoren), which extends almost to Rateče. Here you will find sunnier and, above all, more gentle slopes, which are extremely suitable for children and beginners. The ski slopes are well connected, so you should take your time and explore the whole ski area.

For beginners

If you are a beginner, we strongly recommend you take one of the ski courses offered by the many ski schools in the area. We particularly recommend these courses for children who are new to skiing, as the first steps are very important. It is necessary to overcome fear and, of course, to learn the correct technique, which is much easier when you are with your peers and under the supervision of professional teachers. For those who would like to improve their existing skills, we recommend individual ski lessons.

Families with younger children

We recommend families with younger children to go to Velika Dolina – at the end of the Podkoren part of the ski resort, where you will find the most gentle slopes and lifts that are most suitable for children and skiers whose skiing skills are not yet suited to the steeper slopes. The terrain at this end of the ski area also enjoys long periods of sunshine and is usually less crowded than in Kranjska Gora.

Snow beach

At the foot of the ski slope in Kranjska Gora is the so-called snow beach, which is the venue for many events and activities. The gastronomic offer is varied, as most of the cafeterias and restaurants are located here and will make sure you don’t go hungry or thirsty. Buffet lunches, home-cooked meals, snacks, grills, fast food, desserts, or various snacks are always available, and you can also warm up with a hot cup of tea or mulled wine.

The snow beach is particularly attractive for children, who will find numerous playgrounds, baby ski lifts for the little ones, and a number of fun events and activities for them to join in. There is also a “snow” kindergarten, where they will take care of them so that you can enjoy a carefree ride on the snowy slopes of Kranjska Gora.

Night skiing

The view of Kranjska Gora from the top of the ski slope is spectacular at night, as almost the entire part of the ski slope above the winter beach is well-lit, which allows for quality skiing as the crowds are much smaller at night and the ski terrain is always fresh and newly groomed before night skiing. The Dolenčev Rut and Kekec chairlifts, as well as the Mojca 2 lift, are illuminated, as are the sledding track and the cross-country skiing track, which are located in the immediate vicinity. Depending on the number of skiers, the chairlifts operate alternately or both together.



Temperatures are usually much lower at night, so dress accordingly for night skiing.

Snowboard park

Freestyle skiing and snowboarding are becoming increasingly popular around the world, especially with younger people. The Snowboard Park is located on the left side of the Kekec chairlift and offers plenty of fun for all those who like to get into mischief in the snow – just make sure you’re properly equipped and protected…


Sledding is a favorite with the youngest children. There is a groomed sledding track next to the Kekec chairlift, but you can also go sledding in Gozd Martuljek, where, by prior arrangement, they offer night sledding on a 5-kilometer track, which is not difficult and is suitable for families. Snow banks are provided for safety and torches are lit to indicate where to slow down.

Night sledding on the Tamar trail is also extremely popular, especially at night when the full moon lights up the trail. If you’re up for an adventure, snowshoes and a good head torch are almost essential. The descent from Tamar is also suitable for families with younger children, provided the snow conditions are suitable. If the trail is too icy, we advise against sledding from the Tamar.

Vitranc World Cup

The Vitranc Cup is an annual alpine skiing competition for men in Kranjska Gora for the FIS Ski Cup, held on the so-called Vitranc slope or ‘Poligon’ in Podkoren. The Vitranc Cup is one of the so-called classic, traditional events, which is held every year in the World Cup competition at the peak of the ski season. The competition has been held since 1961, is a two-day event, and features two disciplines, first the slalom on Saturday and then the giant slalom on Sunday.

Since 2023, however, the Women’s Ski World Cup has permanently moved to Kranjska Gora from Pohorje, mainly due to the annual lack of snow, under the name of the “Zlata lisica “ (Golden Fox Race).

Other activities

Kranjska Gora caters to all non-skiers, with many other activities on offer. If you prefer ice skating to ski, you will find a small ice-skating rink in the center, and in very cold winters you can skate on the Jasna lake or on the frozen swamp in Rateče.

You can also go cross-country skiing on the well-maintained cross-country ski trails, or simply enjoy a relaxing walk to Lake Jasna, the Krnica lodge, and the Tamar lodge, or pamper yourself in the numerous wellness centers, saunas, or swimming pools.

For kids and adults

Ski Schools in Kranjska Gora

Many children make their first turns on their skis right here in Kranjska Gora. Many renowned ski schools have their headquarters here and they provide quality care for future ski champions – both adults and children. You can also hire a personal trainer who will make sure that you can carelessly ski down the slopes in the shortest possible time.


No excuse for staying at home

Ski Equipment Rental

Buy or rent? There are a multitude of factors to consider: How much will it cost? Does my skill level matter? Will I be able to rent equipment in good condition? Is the cost of getting my own setup worth it? Renting is often best for beginners, people who don’t ski often, those who are still testing the waters, or who are on the fence about investing in the sport. In recent years, the quality of ski equipment for rent has increased greatly, so we definitely recommend it.


Let’s go shopping

Winter Gear and Clothing shops

Long gone are the days when resorts were just somewhere to hit the slopes. Who cares about skiing when there are a ton of Mountain boutiques and shops full of the latest trends. Whether you’re a non-skier accompanying your family on a winter sports holiday or just a skier who likes to shop a bit in their free time, choosing a ski resort with attractive shopping options can make your ski holiday even better.
