Welcome to Kranjska Gora, the most famous ski resort in Slovenia and a charming alpine village

Introducing Kranjska Gora

Kranjska Gora is a beautiful alpine village and the most famous Slovenian ski resort situated on the northern tip of the Triglav National Park in the Slovenian Alps, just a mere 5 minutes by car from both the Italian and Austrian borders.

The resort isn’t the largest ski area in Slovenia but it’s the oldest one and one of the prettiest. It’s perfect for families with younger children and also for beginner and intermediate level skiers, with pistes easily accessible directly from the center of the village. Everything here is geared towards making your first ski experience a great one. There’s a top-notch ski school, so you’ll be in safe hands when learning the basics. Ski hire is available from a number of shops. If you’ve progressed past the nursery slopes, there are the World Cup runs at Podkoren and six resorts in Italy, Austria and Slovenia, within 30-45 minutes drive.

This family-friendly resort also has a children’s park with a conveyor belt, a sledding ground, a cross country skiing terrain and an outdoor ice skating rink in the village centre. There are also lots of lively restaurants, bars, a couple of swimming pools, spas and more. There is always something happening in the village, but if you prefer to keep things low key, then that’s not a problem either, because Kranjska Gora is an awesome place to relax.

There are several large hotels in the village, providing you with high standards of accommodation and service, mostly at great value. Self catering privately rented apartments are also available.

In addition to the winter ski season, Kranjska Gora is also well worth visiting in the summer. Fantastic mountain scenery, riding in nature and climbing the surrounding mountains, cycling, golfing, mountain bike park, a summer sledging piste and easy access to the Triglav National Park are the reason why the village remains very popular all year round.
