Velika planina

Velika planina is the scenic high mountain plateau and the site of one of Europe’s few surviving high mountain herdsmen’s villages. It is a popular hiking destination in the summer, but it is also stunningly beautiful in winter, when it is covered in snow. Velika planina is accessible by aerial cable car (under maintanence until 15.1.2020), and on foot, via a number of popular mountain routes.

Kranjska Gora

During the winter, Kranjska Gora is busy with visitors who ski and snowboard in the resort of Vitranc. But this cute alpine town also offers lots of fresh air and winter idyll for those who prefer to walk around and enjoy a great winter scenery.

Kranjska Gora is Slovenia’s renowned winter resort, embraced by the Julian Alps.
Pokljuka plateau

The forests and meadows of the Pokljuka plateau offer plenty of walking trails and winter-sports facilities. It is a fairy place to visit in winter when there is snow,  to enjoy the sounds of silence and own footsteps in the snow. Squirrels running from one tree to another on a white landscape are included in this winter experience.

Pokljuka is an alpine plateau located in Triglav National Park, between Bohinj and Bled.


The picturesque village of  Mojstrana (near Kranjska gora) rests in one of the most stunning locations in Slovenia. It is one of the entrances to the Triglav national park from the north and has been known for its healthy climate for many years. Here you can enjoy the many outdoor activities or simply relax in the beautiful natural setting. You can visit St Clemens’s church, the Slovene Alpine Museum, and see very old authentic houses.

We walked from Gozd Martuljek to Mojstrana, and enjoyed every moment of it.

Mojstrana is the gateway to three magnificent valleys at the heart of the Triglav National Park, Vrata, Krmo and Kot.

From Mojstrana you can continue to Vrata Valley and stop at Peričnik waterfall. In the winter when the waterfall freezes, it’s absolutely a spectacular experience!
