Take a trainride!

1. TO KRANJSKA GORA WITH TRAIN

Even though the last train to Kranjska Gora and further towards Planica departed back in 1966, it is still possible to complete part of the journey on the same route by taking a train to Jesenice. How to continue your journey towards Kranjska Gora then depends on yourself and your wishes. You can take one of the buses that run on the regular bus line Ljubljana–Rateče or you can take a taxi. If you travel with your bicycle, you can continue the journey on a route that almost exactly follows the train route from more than 50 years ago. The picturesque cycle route will lead you from Jesenice past the villages Mojstrana, Belca and Gozd Martuljek all the way to Kranjska Gora. Nearest stations: Jesenice, and from there by bus, taxi or bicycle on a cycle route to Kranjska Gora (20 km) Timetables of Slovenian Railways:

2. AROUND JULIAN ALPS ON A MOTORAIL

The Gorenjska and Northern Primorska region are connected by the so-called Bohinj Railway. The trains that travel on this line also include a special motorail. The motorail can safely, quickly and easily take you through the longest Slovenian tunnel to Most na Soči – the starting point of the journey to the Soča Valley, which offers many different ways to spend time in nature. You can board the train with a passenger car, van, pickup truck, camper or bicycle. Vehicles can have a height of up to 3 metres and a width of up to 2.4 metres. By using the motorail, you will make an important contribution to preserving the ecosystem and the quality living environment in the Julian Alps. If you are going on a round tour across the Julian Alps, you can combine your drive with a motorail on the Most na Soči–Bohinjska Bistrica route.
