Summer activities

Kranjska Gora
is a very important winter sport and touristic centre on the north-west of Slovenia, very close to the tripoint of Slovenia, Austria and Italy. There is a ski centre with 13 ski tows and 6 ski lifts which take you on easy, difficult and very difficult ski slopes so everybody can have his share of fun. Kranjska Gora is also close to the Italian ski centres Tarvisio and Sella Nevea, as well as to the Austrian ski centres of Nassfeld and Gerlitzen.

Beside skiing, Kranjska Gora also offers a range of well maintained cross-country ski tracks, walking paths, children activities, sledding, night sledding, ice skating, an outdoor swimming pool, saunas, massages in the wellness centre and casinos with slot machines and poker tables. Due to its proximity to the Julian Alps and the Karawanken mountain ranges, it is an ideal starting place for back-country skiing and winter mountain ascents.

VITRANC CUP:  Kranjska Gora can boast with the world-class FIS ski race for the ski World cup for men that is held each year in Podkoren. The event is visited by thousands of spectators who support the heroes of the white slopes. You can join them this winter between 9.3.2012 and 11.3.2012.

PLANICA: Planica is a worldwide attraction - since the year 1934 it is the cradle of ski jumping and ski-flying. Here, over 60 world records have been achieved, including the first jump over 100 m of the Austrian Seppa Bradle in 1936 as well as the first jump over 200m of the Finn Toni Nieminen in 1994. The next round of ski-jumping in Planica is held between 15.3.2012 and 18.3.2012.

Kranjska Gora is the starting point for the most popular backcountry ski destinations in Slovenia, including skiing from Mala Mojstrovka, Kotovo Sedlo (Jalovec), from underneath the Križka stena or through the valley Za Cmirom underneath the highest Slovenian mountain, Triglav. All our mountain gudes that can take you to those trips have an international license.

Ice climbing

Climbing the frozen waterfall Lucifer is not a descent into hell! Lucifer is a famous frozen waterfall in Martuljek and is one of the most treasured ice climbs in Slovenia. We also suggest climbing one of the frozen waterfalls underneath the Prisank mountain or in Tamar - of course accompanied by the mountain guide. There is also an artificial ice wall in the valley of Mlačca in Mojstrana, suited for both veterans and complete beginners. Our mountain guides will supply the neccesary technical equipment, teach you the technique of ice climbing and lead you through the waterfall climbs.

Winter mountain ascent with a guide

Winter ascents into the mountains are something beautiful and fast descents over snowy slopes often make for a fast return to the valley.  But you still need to have favourable weather and snow conditions as well as quite some experience. Accompanied by the mountain guide you are surely safer! The mountain guide will choose a tour for you that won't be exposed to avalanches, guide you through difficult terrains and form a rope team where neccesary.
