We’ll run towards Planica, which is known worldwide with its Nordic centre and one of the biggest ski flying hills in the world. You’ll be able to experience the steepest zipline in the world in the afternoon and fly over the Planica ski flying hill.

Planica is also your entry point to Triglav National Park, where you’ll spend the most of your day. We’ll begin in the glacial valley Tamar.

We’ll run towards Slemenova špica (1911 m) – our highest peak of the day. There are quite some mountain cabins along the way, so you won’t have to worry about being hungry or thirsty.

To finish off the stage, we’ll descend along a mule track, built during the second world war. This track is perfect for a fast descent into another glacial valley – Krnica. To finish everything off, we’ll run by the stunning Lake Jasna and back to Kranjska Gora.
