Settle yourself in Kranjska Gora, one of the most famous alpine resorts in Slovenia. Set in the beautiful valley of the Upper Sava River, it is a perfect spot to explore the Julian Alps. With a great network of cycling trails in the area, it is easy to stay active! Hop on a bicycle and pedal your way to the Zelenci Springs, the very beginning of the Sava River.

If you feel like you want to pack in a bit more, there are many trails around the town you can choose to go hiking on. Or you can just relax and enjoy the pristine Lake Jasna and its magnificent mountain backdrop, especially in the summer, when it becomes a popular swimming spot.

DAY 2 - Hiking in Vrata Valley

Not far from Kranjska Gora, lies one of the most spectacular valleys in this mountain range. One of the sites that makes Vrata Valley so popular is Peričnik Waterfall, a marvellous 360° nature show, as there is a walking trail that lets you go around it. There is a beautiful forest trail that runs through the valley, following Triglavska Bistrica River upstream. You will get to see Mount Triglav eye to eye, when reaching the head of Vrata Valley as you stand underneath the towering northern face of this highest peak in Slovenia.

DAY 3 - Drive across Vršič Pass to Soča Valley

On this day, we will loop around some of the most stunning parts of the Julian Alps, as we make our way across the Vršič Pass into the Soča River Valley. The river, sometimes called the emerald beauty, is a spectacular sight on its own, while the hiking and all the other optional activities, make it a true adventure paradise. Fairytale landscapes of epic proportions will make your heart jump with joy!

Frequently Asked Questions

I am a single traveller, how can I book?

Don’t worry, just drop us a line in our inbox. We will do our best to try and find you some company, so if you are flexible in your travel dates, let us know as well. Do you want a private trip? No problem, we got you covered too.

Why is the accommodation not specified?

We are always looking for the perfect fit for you. We use a few different accommodation providers that fit our standards but they are subjected to availability, especially in the high season. We can also adjust the holiday, keeping in mind your preferences and budget and can always find a more suitable solution for your taste.

Where is the pickup and which transfers are included?

The included pickup and drop-off at the end of the holiday in the price published on our website is in Kranjska Gora. For any changes, please notify us upon booking. The included transfers are all the transfers between places and/or activities specified in the itinerary.

Where do I eat when the food is not included?

Both our back office team and our guides know where to go. We can give you recommendations or even pre-book some places for you. You can be adventurous and find places on your own. Either way, let us know if you would like any sort of help.

How fit do I need to be?

Our activities included in the tour are appropriate both for absolute first-timers to people with experience. For most of the activities included in the itinerary, you need to be moderately fit, meaning that you are able to hike up a slope for about 30 minutes and know how to swim for the water activities. In case you are unsure about any of the activities, feel free to ask us anything and we will help you out.

What should I wear? Do I have to bring anything with me?

It is important to dress for the season. Slovenia has all 4 seasons, so please check the weather forecast before the day trip regarding temperatures and rainfall. When you are close to the Alps, the weather can change fairly quickly, so your best bet is to always bring an extra layer. We recommend shoes you will be comfortable in.

I have food restrictions. Are there restaurants for me?

It really depends on the level of your restriction. Vegetarian options are fairly easy to find in Slovenia, but vegan dishes, on the other hand, are extremely hard to come by in rural areas of the country and in smaller towns. Please note that the places where we stop for lunch are often traditional and may have difficulties accommodating you outside of their standard menu. We suggest you keep this in mind.

Will I have some time to myself?

Yes! Our holidays are designed to give you some free time every day to relax and spend it the way you want to. It is your holiday after all! For any advice and suggestions you can always turn to your tour leader or our back office, who will be more than happy to help you out.

What is the tourist tax that is not included in the price?

A tourist and promotion tax is a fee that every visitor has to pay for each overnight stay all over Slovenia. It consists of two parts: each municipality charges a tourist tax fee, which goes towards financing and maintenance of tourist facilities in the area, and the Slovenian Tourist Board charges a promotion tax, which is used to promote Slovenia. Depending on the municipality, the tax rates vary - from 1.5€ in some locations to 3.13€ in Ljubljana or Bled (per person, per night).

    We spent three wonderful days in Kranjska Gora and we are very satisfied with our holidays there. We did a fantastic bike ride to a little lake on the first day and a very scenic hike to a waterfall the next. On our last day, Ivana took us to Trenta to see Soča valley. Truly mesmerizing.

    Kranjska Gora is such a perfect place for your base for adventures around Julian Alps. Three days seemed too short but we definitely made the most out of it. Ivana was a great host and the hotel was lovely. May I suggest staying for a day or two more in the amazing Soča valley, it is breathtaking and worth a bit more time.

    There is absolutely too much things to do around Kranjska Gora or only three days but the selection guys at Slovenia Holidays proposed is just the right amount of a bit of everything. We got to cycle, hike and see some of the best and most beautiful places of Slovenia. Highly recommended.
