Walking is one of the main summer attractions with a huge range of beautiful trails to suit all abilities.

Just a few minutes drive or a short walk on the Italian side of the border from Rateče are the stunning Belopeski Lakes (or Laghi di Fusine in Italian). A wonderful place for a walk and to admire the views up to mighty Mangart mountain which lies half in Italy and half in Slovenia.

The town of Kranjska Gora itself is a pretty alpine affair, very family friendly, with lots of lively restaurants, bars and a couple of swimming pools / spas. Around Kranjska Gora are a number of extremely pretty villages (including Podkoren, Rateče, Mojstrana, Dovje) in idyllic mountain surroundings. There is a regular daily bus service between Podkoren and Kranjska Gora, great for getting to the ski slopes.
