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.

This is a stunning mountain drive that is open intermittently during the year depending on conditions. There are 50 hairpin bends and on the Kranjska Gora side it is fairly rough with cobbled stones on the hairpin bends. On the Trenta side of the pass the road is in much better condition. There is stunning scenery on the drive as... More

Where do you like to go on holiday?  This year we decided to have a mountain holiday in the Alps so we went to the wonderful little resort of Kranjska Gora in Slovinia, just on the borders of Italy and Austria.  What was the most demanding mountain trek on the itinerary?  Well, there is a mountain pass known as the...

If you are in the Julian Alps or Soča/Isonzo Valley, make sure that you also drive on the Vršič Pass as it connects regions of Gorenjska (Upper Carniola) and Primorska (Slovene Littoral) and it is the longest and the highest mountain pass in Slovenia, with the average incline of around 7,25 %. Drive is memorable (not higher as 1611 meters... More

I believe vrsic pass is he longest or highest alpine road in Slovenia. Therefore it's gonna have amazing views when you reach the top and before you get into the valley. My friend and I tried to mountain bike it and it was one of the hardest things ever. Considering we aren't experiences riders we didn't really plan very well.... More

We went by car and enjoyed! Hard to see the view across trees sometimes but it offers a lot of places where u can take a break or photo. Try to go in sunny weather!

We caught the bus up from Kranjska Gora, all those hairpin bends made an interesting ride. The pass has stunning views, whichever direction you look in. We then walked up to Sleme, which was amazing. We were early so there were very few people around then. Gets a bit busier later. Breathtaking views from Sleme. The hike back to Kranjska... More

The Vrsic Pass is very special. It is a stunning road the opens amazing views, mountains and valleys. Like a picture in the sky. We recommend stopping and walking around the pass itself and also on the way to the pass. You can bring food with you and have a picnic.

Worth the effort for the stunning views from the top. On the walking map(available from tourist info) as route . Wear decent walking boots and poles are useful for the trickier ups and downs.

A dramatic drive up to the Vrsic Pass - round all 24 hairpin bends - takes you past the Russian Chapel and into the high mountains. To the right of the pass summit an easy path leads up to the summit of Sleme mountain with breath-taking views

Whatever your preferred method, this is a glorious stretch of road to travel. Enjoy some stunning mountain scenery. Close to Trenta you will find the Alpinum Juliana which is a beautiful peaceful spot.
