The Upper Sava River Valley, with Kranjska Gora, provides hikers with many possibilities. To the south, the valley is surrounded by the peaks of the Julian Alps, with the highest mountain in Slovenia, Triglav, 2,864m, with a magnificent north face; to the north by the wooded slopes of the Karavanke Alps, the most prominent being Kepa at 2,139m. Kranjska Gora has 20 hiking trails for all abilities, ranging from easy and gentle (two hours, elevation gain 100m), moderate (three hours of walking, elevation gain 300m) and hard (four hours of walking, elevation gain 800m). The trails are marked and a detailed map with descriptions is available. In summer, a chair lift runs from Kranjska Gora to Vitranc, 1,578m. Vitranc affords a beautiful view of the Julian Alps and Triglav. It is also the starting point for hikes up the 1,746m-high Ciprnik. In cooperation with the Mountain Guide Association and the Alpine Association of Slovenia, we offer the possibility to hire mountain guides for different trips. Kranjska Gora also runs organised instructorled Nordic walking courses and rents out walking poles.
Above Kranjska Gora is the Vršič Pass, at 1,611 metres above sea level the highest road pass in Slovenia. It is located on the divide between the Adriatic and the Black Sea. Over the pass runs a road, which was constructed based on the ancient transport connection between the Upper Sava River Valley and the Trenta Valley. The road was built by Russian prisoners of war during WWI; the Russian chapel situated near the road leading from Kranjska Gora to Vršič is a monument to their work. The pass is a popular starting point for tackling the peaks Sleme, Mala Mojstrovka, Prisank, Jalovec and Razor.
