Kranjska Gora - Amazing cycling adventures

Print Add to travel planner
The popularity of Kranjska Gora as a cycling destination grew with the launching of the network of waymarked cycle paths and the bike park situated on the steep slopes of Vitranc. What was once known among cyclists as the starting point for the legendary climb to the Vršič mountain pass is today a recreational and race cycling hotspot. Suitable for families, advanced individual riders and professional cycling teams.
The famous winding road to the 1,611 m-high Vršič mountain pass is still a popular topic among road cyclists and mountain bikers. But the valley too holds numerous beautiful cycle paths, many of which are waymarked and suitable for families and recreational riders. The main cycle path, from which other routes branch out to the north and south, connects Kranjska Gora, or Rateče at the far end of the valley, with Jesenice. Following the former railway line and running away from the main road for the most part, it is a peaceful and scenic route enjoyed by cyclists, inline skaters and strollers alike. This family cycle path crosses the Italian border into Tarvisio, where it is known as Ciclovia, and continues to Austria. From Kranjska Gora you can also pedal your way through the Radovna River Valley and reach Bled.

Cycling tours
Most of the advanced mountain bike trails lead north from the valley, into the wooded slopes of
the Karavanke Alps. You can climb to the very top of the Karavanke ridge, the border between
Slovenia and Austria. You will enjoy the spectacular view of the Julian Alps, whose steep and
rocky slopes are inaccessible to cyclists, except for the remarkable Vršič Pass, which overlook the Primorska region to the other side. The side valleys, which stretch into the heart of the
Julian Alps, are great for leisurely trips to the steep faces of the Julian Alps. The Tamar and
Krnica valleys are the two most widely known. For an exhilarating downhill adventure, visit the Vitranc Bike Park. The park boasts many downhill tracks across natural terrain and manmade barriers. Road cyclists can tackle the Vršič mountain pass or take the easier way via Tarvisio to reach Mangart, or head for Austria via Korensko Sedlo (Wurzenpass).
