Ljubljana: Kranjska Gora and the Alps

4. Ljubljana: Kranjska Gora and the Alps

Your first stop on your amazing trip will be to Kranjska Gora, a small ski resort famous as the traditional setting of World Cup downhill-skiing competitions. You can take a nice walk to the picturesque Jasna Lake, before enjoying a cup of coffee with an amazing view over the Julian Alps. Afterwards, you can visit the Liznjek House, a farmhouse which was the richest homestead in Kranjska Gora, and today operates as an ethnographic museum. At this museum you will be able to discover rich original furnishings, as well as great presentations of what living conditions were like a few hundred years ago. After a traditional Slovenian lunch, you will be taken to the beautiful Lake Zelenci. This fairy tale lake does not freeze in the winter, due to the constant temperature of 6 degrees which it maintains throughout the year. After Zelenci, you will have time to experience the magic of a world-famous mountain valley, where the first ever ski-flying hill was built in 1969. It is also the site where numerous world records for the longest ski flights were set. You will also have plenty of possibilities to do winter activities such as zip lining (weekends only), snow-shoeing and sledding. If you don’t wish to do winter activities, you can still admire the view over the Tamar Valley and cross-country stadium, or even try out the ski-jumps simulator.

Our favorite tour of our entire stay in Slovenia! Our guide Jascha was outstanding and went out of his way to show us the best spots in and around Triglav National Park. Amazing waterfalls, views of the mountains, and stunning lakes. Highlights: Vintgar Gorge, Jasna Lake, and Pericnik waterfall. Definitely worth a visit! Tip: If you are staying in Ljubljana, ask your guide to let you out at Lake Bled end of the day to grab the last boat to the island on the lake - we got to experience it in peace and quiet and at sunset. Then, take a bus back into the capital for only a few bucks.

We had an amazing day! We really enjoyed the nature and the scenery. The trip was jam-packed with beautiful places -- if you only have time to do one excursion from Ljubljana, I highly recommend this one. Jaša was an amazing tour guide (and driver)! We learned so much on the trip and had a lovely time. The hikes were really awesome, and we had enough time to go for a dip in lake Bohinj -- which was our highlight of the day.

It was the most amazing tour i have ever been to. The driver and tour leader was super informative and very down to earth and helpful. Sry forgot his name ( ski instructor) Our day was full to the brim and i would highly recommend this tour to anyone fit for walking .

Our guide Marko was the best guide we had so far. Very easy going, making us feel in vacation even with a lot of sightseeing. We were 3 people in a car, so we could go at our own rythm. Could not recommend more !!

Terrific guide. Professional and friendly. He made the day most enjoyable.
