Kranjska Gora Ski Adventure

Lake Jasna in winter near Kranjska Gora
Near the mountains and glacial lakes of Triglav National Park in northwestern Slovenia lie the hills of Kranjska Gora. A world-class ski center nestled in the Julian Alps on the border with Austria and Italy, Kranjska Gora is among Slovenia's largest and best-equipped alpine resorts offering runs perfect for families and beginner to intermediate level skiers. Here you can choose from 18 runs of varying levels of technical difficulty, though for something more challenging, there are the World Cup runs at the connected Podkoren and ski jump at the nearby Planica.

Meanwhile, if (downhill) skiing or snowboarding aren't for you, there are plenty of alternative options to try, including cross-country skiing, sledding, snowshoeing, and winter hiking. And for fans of ice climbing, there’s the option to challenge yourself with a climb up the frozen waterfall in Gozd Martuljek. Come the evening, consider a stroll through the Alpine Village, a winter market dressed in twinkling lights that sells mulled wine, tea, and local delicacies. And choose to end a pretty perfect day cozying up to one of the outdoor crackling fires with a warming drink in hand.
