Kranjska Gora is an alpine resort town and a great base for exploring the Northern Julian Alps.
From Kranjska Gora, you can summit the mighty Mala Mojstrovka (2332 m), Prisank (2547 m), Jalovec (2645 m) and Špik (2472m).
Many of these hikes begin at Vršič Pass or Tamar Valley (accessible from Planica).
If heart-pounding hikes aren’t what you’re after, you can hike the easy to moderate trails to Slemenova špica, Planica valley, or Martuljek waterfalls.
