Ultra Sky Trail will take place on a completely new route. You’ll start in the village Žirovnica, cultural capital os Slovenia and then the route will take you across peaks, offering stunning views and to the finish line in Kranjska Gora.
You’ll begin your race from the village Žirovnica, cultural capital of Slovenia. Few meters higher, you can see lake Bled, with an island in the midle. Then your route takes you to the highest point of your race – Stol, and can already be seen from Završnica valley. With its 2236 meters, Stol is the highest peak in your way. Don’t forget to take some pictures from the highest point of your race, because it’ll offer breathtaking views of Julian Alps.
Your next stop from Stol is going across the ridge, right to Golica and Dovška baba. From there you have a great downhill in store, taking you straigt to Mojstrana. A flat section follows next, but you still have some climbing to do – you’ll pass the Jerman waterfall, climb Srednji vrh and then return to Kranjska Gora.
There will be many stunning views of not only Julian Alps, but also Austrian mountains and valleys.
Finish: Kranjska Gora
