1. Ljubljana: Kranjska Gora and the Alps
Your first stop on your amazing trip will be to Kranjska Gora, a small ski resort famous as the traditional setting of World Cup downhill-skiing competitions. You can take a nice walk to the picturesque Jasna Lake, before enjoying a cup of coffee with an amazing view over the Julian Alps. Afterwards, you can visit the Liznjek House, a farmhouse which was the richest homestead in Kranjska Gora, and today operates as an ethnographic museum. At this museum you will be able to discover rich original furnishings, as well as great presentations of what living conditions were like a few hundred years ago. After a traditional Slovenian lunch, you will be taken to the beautiful Lake Zelenci. This fairy tale lake does not freeze in the winter, due to the constant temperature of 6 degrees which it maintains throughout the year. After Zelenci, you will have time to experience the magic of a world-famous mountain valley, where the first ever ski-flying hill was built in 1969. It is also the site where numerous world records for the longest ski flights were set. You will also have plenty of possibilities to do winter activities such as zip lining (weekends only), snow-shoeing and sledding. If you don’t wish to do winter activities, you can still admire the view over the Tamar Valley and cross-country stadium, or even try out the ski-jumps simulator.
