Explore the magical winter resort in Kranjska Gora and enjoy the natural beauty of the Alps, while engaging in winter sports or adrenaline activities.

Become part of the region, known for its sporting opportunities and get in the thick of the action with one of the recreational pursuits available.

Your first stop on this amazing trip will be Kranjska Gora, a small ski resort famous as the traditional setting of downhill skiing World Cup competitions. Have a nice walk to the picturesque Jasna Lake and enjoy a cup of coffee with an amazing view over the Julian Alps. Visit Liznjek House, the farmhouse which was the richest homestead in Kranjska Gora and today operates as an ethnographic museum with rich original furnishing and great presentation of the living conditions a few hundred years ago.

After a traditional Slovenian lunch, the tour will take you to the beautiful lake Zelenci. The fairytale lake does not freeze in the winter, because of the constant temperature throughout the year, which is about 6 degrees and is also a home to numerous endangered animal and plant species. After Zelenci it is time to experience the magic of world-famous mountain valley, where the first ever ski flying hill was built in 1969 and where numerous world records for the longest ski flights were set: Planica Nordic Centre. There is also plenty of possibilities to do winter activities such as a zip line (on weekends only), snow-shoeing or sledding. If you don’t want to do winter activities, you can still admire the view over the Tamar Valley and cross-country stadium and try out the simulator of ski jumps. Fun on this trip is assured.
