Slovenia is an all-year-round destination, so if you enjoy winter sports half as much as the average Slovene, you’ll definitely want to plan your next winter holiday in Slovenia.
Whether you’re travelling solo or with friends, looking for a romantic getaway or an adrenaline-packed ride, taking the family on a relaxing vacation or an active adventure – Slovenia in winter is the perfect destination you’ve been looking for.
When magical forests, rolling hills, majestic mountains and picturesque towns get covered in a lovely white blanket of snow, the season of winter activities in Slovenia is officially open.
The unspoilt winter wonderland of the Alps and other magnificent regions of Slovenia offer a wide array of outdoor fun that you simply shouldn’t miss out on. A giant network of hiking trails allows you to explore Slovenia’s uniquely diverse countryside and absorb its breath-taking natural splendour up-close. The country’s numerous and well-connected ski resorts are cosy, uncrowded, and equipped with pistes of varying technical difficulty. You can hitch a ride up beautiful snow-covered hills and sledge down their lovely powdery slopes. Stunningly serene valleys invite you to join a cross-country skiing expedition along their beautiful snowy ridges, through forests and across fields. In winter, Slovenia’s gorgeous glacial lakes, including the world-famous Lake Bled, turn into an ice-skating paradise. But ice can also be tackled vertically. Adrenaline junkies can enjoy Slovenia’s superb ice climbing conditions by scaling fantastic frozen waterfalls.
For those searching for a more laid back winter escape, search no further. Slovenia is home to wonderfully luxurious and health-boosting thermal spas with all the necessary commodities. After an active day on the snow, nothing is quite as relaxing as soaking in natural thermal springs, sweating in a sauna, getting a massage, or sipping some hot mulled wine and snacking on traditional Carniola sausage at one of many cute market stands.
