Slovenian paradise for summer alpine Incentives

Kranjska Gora is a picturesque alpine town nestled in the Julian Alps at the triple boarder of Slovenia, Italy and Austria. Its small and friendly town centre with a few restaurants, shops and hotels welcomes guests from all over the world year-round. In the summer, the place is full of hikers and cyclists, whereas in the winter it becomes a busy ski resort.

The beauty of nature as well as its location and infrastructure make Kranjska Gora a perfect destination for active incentives. In the summer edition, these can include hiking, cycling, teambuilding activities in the nature, tasting of the rich local culinary offer and chilling on the shores of alpine lakes, among others.

There are numerous possibilities for hiking trips and cycling tours starting in Kranjska Gora and its vicinity. The trails are adaptable to various levels of fitness, so that everyone is comfortable, and the guests are amazed by the richness of nature when the narrow hiking trails and winding roads bring them to hidden waterfalls, scenic alpine lakes and sunny clearings in the middle of the woods with breathtaking views of the mountains.

The summer teambuilding activities in the area vary from SUP-ing on alpine lakes, spirit distilling, cooking duels, trying out the steepest zipline in the world, summer sledding, summer sports games, and more.

Breaks during hiking, cycling and teambuilding activities are a great opportunity to start exploring the local culinary offer. In the mountain huts the guests are welcomed with traditional homemade liquors with blueberries, walnuts or honey, and they can choose their snack among various typical Slovenian and local dishes. Some of the most popular ones among these are cottage cheese dumplings called “štruklji”, Carniolan sausage and barley stew.

For curious foodies, a meal of three countries can be organized. In just a bit more than three hours, the guests visit, explore and enjoy culinary delicacies of Slovenia, Italy and Austria.

Besides all this Kranjska Gora offers a wide array of beautiful sights that can be included in the itinerary of an incentive trip as part of a morning or evening photo/Instagram tour. The emerald green natural reserve Zelenci, crystal clear lake Jasna, waterfall Peričnik, the Russian chapel and the “Pagan girl” (a face in the cliffs), are just a few of many photogenic and inspirational sights that will spice up the event.
