Attraction details
Type: Nature/ Wildlife Areas, Outdoors
Owner description: At an altitude of 1611 metres, the mountain pass at Vrsic is the highest in the eastern Julian Alps and provides a natural link between the Savska and the Soska valleys. You may wish to have a relaxing cup of coffee or even stay the night at the Ticarjev mountain hut, which is located at the top of the pass. There are five mountain huts on Vrsic offering you rest and refreshment. Just off the main road winding up Vrsic, at an altitude of around 1200 metres rests the Russian chapel. Whilst ascending Vrsic, you can admire the natural rock-carved face of the lovely maiden Ajdovska deklica and a natural rock-window created in the face of the Prisank mountain.

Great walk with our Saga walking party & incredible local guide, something we would never have done alone, but something we would not have missed for the world!

Unfortunately the weather was cloudy and rainy which eventually turned into foggy. But while we could see the views are quite stunning and we even had a traffic jam at the summit with a heard of sheep crossing the road, which was quite adorable. The road is very well maintained and not nearly as scary or difficult as I had... More

We were on a cycling holiday and part of the reason for coming to Slovenia was to cycle the Vrsic. It's described as the "original" Alpe d'Huez with numbered bends, but with the added "attraction" of cobbles on most of the hairpins. It's a 30min to 2hr ride up the pass and on my first ride up on a sunny... More

We travelled by bus to Vrsic to do a walk up to Sleme. What a superb spot! No one should go to Kranjska Gora and not take the trip to Vrsic!
