Biking runs on a former railway line that used to connect Jesenice with Italian Tarvisio. Nowadays, this one of the most scenic bike paths, from the Zelenci Springs Nature Reserve, alongside the Sava Dolinka river. The path is accompanied by the breathtaking views of the steep mountain slopes of the Julian Alps, but they are especially majestic by the Planica Nordic Centre, by the Lake Jasna and up to the Martuljek group from Gozd Martuljek village.
Planica Nordic Center
We can claim with certainty that Planica is to blame for the biggest shift in our mentality – a man can fly on skis. It is the world-famous Planica ski flying hill where, for the first time in history, a human flew over 100 metres on skis and some years later over 200 metres. These achievements placed Planica in the annals of Slovenian sporting history as well as in the history of ski jumping.
Zelenci Springs Nature Reserve
The crystal-clear emerald water and breathtaking views of the mountains in the background never leave anyone disappointed. This natural pearl is the spring of the River Sava Dolinka and many animal and plant species have found their home in its intact nature.
Lake Jasna is located in an idyllic spot, right before the first turns of the road towards the Vršič mountain pass, where the creeks of Velika and Mala Pišnica meet. The lake’s surface reflects a mirror image of the mighty mountains Razor and Prisank, proudly standing in the background.
The two jewels in the very heart of the Martuljek group of mountains. The Lower Martuljek Fall is 30 metres high, while the Zgornji Martuljek Fall descends on three levels over a 110-metre-high vertical wall.
