The Kranjska Gora Valley is the ultimate ski touring location! Located in the stunning Julian Alps of Slovenia, there are skiing itineraries for all levels and a wide variety of activities to enjoy if you feel like taking a day off from skiing.
Kranjska Gora is a great place to discover the alpine landscapes of Slovenia. A gorgeous lake, dozens of waterfalls and plenty of activities for all tastes and levels have turned this valley into one of the prime adventure tourism destinations in the country.
From easy to expert ski touring itineraries , you’ll be spoilt for choice in this area. Vertical gain can go anywhere from 600-1500m and I will always find a fun run to ski back down into the valley.
These are some of the ski touring itineraries we could cover during our 4 days together:
Pod kriško steno: +1000m of altitude gain and 1 hour of skiing. An intermediate level itinerary which usually has some powder.
Kotovo sedlo: +1360m of altitude gain and 1.5 hours of skiing. Also intermediate level.
Triglavski dom Kredarica: +1640m of altitude gain and 1.5 hours of skiing. Skin up to the highest hut in Slovenia, just below Mount Triglav.
Dovška Baba: depending on snow conditions between 400-1000m of altitude gain and 1-2 hours of skiing time. Easy itinerary.
Begunjščica: +1000m of altitude gain and 1.5 hours of skiing. One of the best ski tours in the country, only suitable for experienced ski tourers.
And if after some challenging ski touring days you feel like carving some turns en piste, we could spend a day at the Kranjska Gora Ski Resort or drive to Vogel Ski Resort, just an hour away, for some fine off-piste skiing.
The valley also offers lots of other activities if you feel like taking your skis off for a day. We could hike to a nearby hut (depending on conditions, we might have to put snowshoes on), try some ice climbing in Ledno Plezanje or even climb Mount Triglav, the highest mountain in Slovenia and a national symbol.
If you are interested in doing some sightseeing, we could drive to Slovenia’s capital Ljubljana (45 minutes away) or Bled (30 minutes away), a charming mountain town with a stunning lake.
There are several nice hotels in the area, where you’ll be able to relax after some intense days of skiing. These are some of the ones I recommend:
Some of them have spas and, even if you are not staying in one of them, you can still pay an entrance fee and take advantage of the facilities.
The trip can be adjusted to your wishes and level. We could even go shorter or longer, depending on your availability. Price is on average 90 euros per person per day in a group of 6, and that includes guiding and transport. If your group is larger than 6, I can always bring another IFMGA guide from my team.
I’m a local guide and love sharing my home mountains and local culture with visitors. At the end of the day, your safety and satisfaction are my top priority!
Sounds like an ideal plan? It is! I love guiding in this area because of all the possibilities it offers. The idyllic setting of the Kranjska Gora Valley will make your trip truly unforgettable. Contact me and we’ll start planning your trip!
- Guiding fee

Not included in the price: accommodation, food, equipment and transfer from/to the airport
Please check out the hotels I recommend in the program description.
I recommend you rent your equipment back home, as rental options are limited in Kranjska Gora.
You can fly in Ljubljana, the Slovenian capital, or Venice, in Italy. Let me know if you want me to arrange a transfer for your group. This will cost around 100-150 euros for a group of 7. You can also rent a car. The Ljubljana airport is 65 km away from the Kranjska Gora Valley (around 50 minutes). The Venice airport is 230 km away (2.5 hours).
I am a UIAGM mountain guide, ski instructor and sports teacher and the current president of the Slovenian Mountain Guide Association.
I am still the only guide who can make a living working exclusively in Slovenia. I climb Triglav more than 25 times per year, which means I have climbed the most famous peak in my country over 200 times.
If you want to climb or ski in Slovenian mountains I am the right choice. I guide via ferrata, rock climbing, snow climbing, ice climbing, hikes, heliski, freeride skiing and ski touring.
Slovenia has good options for all of these activities, so you are welcome to take a look at my trips and find something for yourself. If you don't find anything let me know and I will see if I can help you!
I speak English. Ich sprache auch ein bischen Deutsch. Parla anche un pocho Italiano e abla tambien un po Espanol.
If I am not available to guide you, one of the super experienced guides in my team - Rok, Peter, Grega or Igor - will be your guide.

Our guide Luka did an amazing job! He was calm, confident and experienced. His support helped us achieve a brilliant climb up Triglav. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
Too much snow and avalanche risk cancelled the climb to the top of Mt Triglav. However, Mitja Sorn Guiding Team provided alternate hiking and climbing options, which were challenging, exciting and safe.
It was an amazing week with an amazing guide > Mitja ! Why ? Because he was all the week looking to the best option regarding the weather forcast changing, listing to my wishes ! He was also pushing a lot ! And that was for me the priority :-) I'll be back Mitja ! C.
Our guide was Martin Zumer and Martin did a wonderfull job. Martin's guiding is very professional and you feel always safe and in good hands. On the other hands Martin leaves you enough space to unfold your own abilities and ideas, not controlling more than is necessary for safety reasons. I personaly like this kind of approach. Martin took also great care for us after the touring, cooking in the winter room, helping us finding a good restaurant and accommodation. The whole group of five guests from Austria and Switzerland - all quite experienced and ambitious skiers - had a perfect experience during our four days tour. Thank you Martin!

Mitja is a great man. The only problem was that there was no fresh powder. For sure we’ll be back in Vogel.

Due to weather conditions, we had to go skiing in Nassfeld. We were very satisfied with the guidance, instructions and help from our guide/instructor Mitja. I highly recommend him to anyone interested in freeride skiing or ski touring in Slovenia, Italy, or Austria. Mitja is a great man and an excellent skier!
I’ve made a three day course with Uroš and couldn’t be happier. It was very fun, and with a great amount of informations. Uroš has a very extensive knowledge of snow, weather and mountaineering techniques, and it’s a great guy to chat to in the mountains too. The tours we made were a great testing ground and with the right amount of difficulties to test new skills. Highly recommend. *****
I had a great time climbing Mt Triglav with Urôs. It’s definitely been a climbing highlight for me, so I can recommend him and the company he works for. If you’re wanting a safe, well organised and friendly service, I don’t think you can look past these guys. I’d happily use Mitja and Urôs again.
Disliked this tour. And don't like the way the guys/guides are communicating.
Mitja was fantastic as a guide. Very communicative, accommodating, and always ensured you were doing alright. Weather was not the most pleasant but Mitja clearly knows the mountain very well and how to guide you safely up and down the mountain safely despite heavy snow and winds
Great service from both Explore-Share and Mitja Sorn Guiding Team. Mita introduced me to my Guide Uros who kept me up to date and informed about the climbing situation due to weather. Due to limited availability of time and good weather, we opted for a day climb. It was a very long day, but thoroughly enjoyable despite the limited views. Uros was very knowledgeable of Triglav and the national park and we had some great conversations. A fantastic experience and totally recommend Mitja and his guiding team. Thank you!
