Kranjska Gora to Soča Valley
Just a couple of kilometres from Kranjska Gora is one of the road-engineering marvels of the 20th century: a breakneck, alpine highway that connects Kranjska Gora with Bovec, 50km to the southwest. The trip involves no fewer than 50 pulse-quickening hairpin turns and dramatic vistas as you cross the Vršič Pass at 1611m.
Many visitors to Slovenia say they’ve never seen a more beautiful lake than Bled … that is, until they’ve seen Lake Bohinj, just 26km to the southwest. We’ll refrain from weighing in on Bled vs Bohinj debate other than to say we see their point. Admittedly, Bohinj lacks Bled’s glamour, but it’s less crowded and in many ways more authentic.
