If you’re looking for an active holiday Hotel Špik is the perfect place to base yourself. Located around five kilometres outside Kranjska Gora in the village of Gozd Martuljek, it's a great starting point for many impressive walks. The route into Kranjska Gora is a pleasant one along the river - it takes just over an hour to walk or you can hop on the bus.

Family-friendly facilities and a great spa

The striking design of the hotel will capture your attention, and the facilities will draw you in – indoor pools and top-class spa facilities are great for a spot of relaxation, or ramp up the action on the outdoor sports courts. There are great children’s facilities here, too.

Inside, there are two accommodation wings, one three-star and one four-star. Three-star rooms are simply furnished and comfortable while the four-star rooms are something a little special. They either face the forest, with a quiet, shaded balcony, or you can opt to look out on the Julian Alps, with a balcony that captures the sun.

Added value

Exclusive to Inghams: Join up to two included walks with a professional, local guide (limited availability, pre-booking is essential)

Kranjska Gora

The Alpine town of Kranjska Gora sits on a bend of the Pišnica river, overlooked by forested foothills and limestone peaks. This is where the Julian Alps meet the Austrian and Italian borders, up in the far north-west of Slovenia. Thousand-year-old larch forests, Alpine meadows, blue lakes and rivers shape the landscape here – making for exciting walking country that stretches into Triglav National Park. Despite the dramatic vistas, many of the walks in Kranjska Gora are moderate, with plenty of easy strolls between neighbouring villages.

Summer holidays in Kranjska Gora

Kranjska Gora might be a popular ski resort by winter, but by summer it’s a postcard of green hills, cobblestone streets and half-timbered houses, all finished off with a grand gothic church. The emerald waters of Lake Jasna sit to the south of town; sandy shores and refreshing swims are the theme here. Alternatively, treat yourself to a meal in the nearby Restaurant Milka, which has two Michelin stars under its belt, thanks to the inspired Nordic-Alpine menu and Slovenian wine list. 

Adventure enthusiasts and families with active teens are bound to love Kranjska Gora - there's a mountain biking trail and mountain rollercoaster underneath the Vitranc chairlift. Or try via ferrata or paragliding, zip lining at Planica or perhaps some lake and river kayaking. Plus, the famously photogenic Lake Bled is only an hour’s easy bus journey away.

Walking in the Julian Alps

Around 100 kilometres of marked footpaths explore Kranjska Gora and its surroundings. The long-distance Juliana Trail starts in town – a 267 kilometre epic that can be walked in smaller stages, with mountain views at every twist and turn. Walk to the highest waterfalls in Slovenia near the small village of Gozd Martuljek - the impressive Martuljek Falls are in two stages and cascade into a dramatic limestone gorge. Other hiking highlights include the Krnica valley and the turquoise headwaters of the Sava Dolinka river. Or tick a few other countries off your stepped-in list on the Triple Border walk, where the borders of Slovenia, Italy and Austria all meet.

Village hopping along the Sava valley

A short drive or cycle west takes you to Podkoren village, a collection of 17th Century farmhouses and inns set in a wildflower valley. Keep following the road parallel to the Austria border, and you’ll reach Rateče – another picturesque village and home to one of Slovenia’s oldest churches. Don’t miss Zelenci Nature Reserve as you pass through. Here, boardwalks lead to a luminous turquoise lake and wetlands alive with nesting birds, amphibians and rare plants like the carnivorous sundew.

Explore Triglav National Park and beyond

Kranjska Gora is an excellent launch pad for exploring Slovenia’s only National Park, crowned by its highest peak, Mount Triglav at 2,864 metres. Walks range from forest and waterfall wanders to longer treks to craggy limestone peaks. Get in and amongst the most dramatic scenery at the top of the Vršič Pass - the highest mountain pass in Slovenia, and the starting point for some fantastic Alpine hikes. On the other side of the pass, the Soča Valley is paradise for outdoor adventures.
