Mojstrana – Kranjska Gora cycling trail (D-2)

One of the more picturesque trails is the Upper Sava valley trail, which runs along the former railroad from Mojstrana, via Kranjska Gora and to Italy.

Officially called the Cycling Trail of Jure Robič, it is already well known as the best, most famous and longest in Gorenjska. It is officially marked D-2.

It runs from Jesenice to the border crossing at Rateče, for a total length of about 28 km. From here, you can continue on to Italy towards Trbiž, past Žabnica to Ponteba, or turn left just after the border and follow the trail leading to the beautiful Lake Fusine. The cycle path follows the former route of the railway line, which was closed in 1966. From Mojstrana, the track winds gently up through the Upper Sava Valley, climbing 255 metres to Rateče. It offers beautiful views of the surrounding valley, and there are well-equipped rest areas along the route, including one where you can have a drink and a bite to eat.

We start our journey from the car park in front of the Slovenian Alpine Museum. Continue towards the village of Dovje and turn left at the main crossroads in Mojstrana – 600 m from the starting point. Pass the Triglavski gaj park (macadam road) and continue over the blue bridge under which the Sava Dolinka river flows, climb a short distance and turn left onto the asphalted cycle path marked D-2.

Continue past the cycling stop (Wi-Fi point, Sonček stop) in the direction of Kranjska Gora. Follow the cycle path the whole way. On the way to Kranjska Gora, cross three bridges over the Sava Dolinka and pass several small rest areas. When you reach Kranjska Gora, the cycle path joins the road. The road first passes a cemetery and then crosses a bridge over the Pišnica River. After the bridge, turn left – 13.3 km and follow the main road to Vršič. Pass the Best Western Hotel in Kranjska Gora, climb a little and soon you will reach the Lake Jasna – 14.5 km 827 m.

From Jasna, descend back towards Kranjska Gora, passing the Best Western Hotel, where you turn into the centre of Kranjska Gora. Continue in the direction of Rateče, past the ski resorts – 16.1 km, where you rejoin the cycle path. The path here is wider than in the first part and climbs slowly. In Podkoren, pass the venue for the Alpine Skiing World Cup and continue past the last lifts. On the right is the footpath to Zelenci, which can also be seen on this cycle tour.

In Rateče, after the former railway station (a larger ochre-coloured house on the right), turn right towards Rateče -20.6 km. Cross the main road leading to Italy and join the road through the town. Cross the main square and turn right after the Šurc Inn – 21.8 km towards the border with Italy. After 700 m you will reach the border – 22.5 km, 847 m. Cross the main road and join the cycle path on the opposite side.

At the crossroads, turn back towards Kranjska Gora. At the next crossroads (on the left is the intermittent lake Ledine) turn right onto the road towards the Planica Valley – 24.3 km and climb up to the Nordic Centre Planica. On the right is the jumping section and on the left the cross-country skiing section. The climb finishes at the Planica Olympic Sports Centre – 26.1 km, 934 m.

From the sports centre go back 200 m to the crossroads, turn right and descend to the crossroads for the cycle path. Turn right here – 27.7 km. Follow the cycle path to our starting point in Mojstrana – 47.7 km.
