Nestling in the Sava Dolinka Valley, on the border with Italy and Austria, Kranjska Gora is not only one of Slovenia's best ski resorts, but also one of great cycling & biking destinations. Because of its location right on the foothill of Triglav National Park, there are endless possibilities for cycling and mountain biking.
The popularity of Kranjska Gora as a cycling destination grew with the launching of the network of well signposted cycling tracks and the bike park situated on the steep slopes of Vitranc. Today is Kranjska Gora a recreational and a race biking hotspot, suitable for families, advanced individual riders and professional cycling teams.
One of the best Slovenian cycling paths leads from Ratece through Kranjska Gora and Gozd Martuljek up to Mojstrana. The 21-km-long route is following the former railway line, away from the main road for the most part. It is a peaceful and scenic route over many bridges, without demanding ascents, and with inns and pleasant resting places. This family cycling tour is suitable for children as well.
From Kranjska Gora you can also cycle through the Radovna River Valley and reach Bled.
A real cycling enthusiast will not miss the opportunity to climb the famous winding road to the 1.611-metres-high Vrsic mountain pass. The highest Slovenian road pass is a popular topic among road cyclists and mountain bikers.
You can also ride your bike around the Julian Alps. The circular cycling trail leads from Kranjska Gora through Bled, Bohinj, Tolmin, Kobarid, Bovec, Vrsic, and back to Kranjska Gora. The entire circle, which is 232 km long, can be cycled in five stages or five days.
For more challenging excursions into the heart of the Alpine valleys we recoommend the Tamar and Krnica valleys, which are the two most widely known.
