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

A 10 minute walk from the chalet is one of Kranjska Gora's most famous attractions - the beautiful Zelenci nature reserve. Just a few minutes drive on the Italian side of the border circa 15 minutes drive from the house are the stunning Belopeski Lakes (or Laghi di Fusine in Italian).
