Description of cross country skiing Slovenia

In Slovenia, skiing in all its forms is nothing short of a national pastime. When conditions are right, and they mostly are, Slovenes migrate to the mountains to take advantage of their picture-perfect Alpine wonderland. Cross-country skiing is a sport Slovenes are particularly proud of. The country has produced many world-class athletes in this discipline, including Olympic medallists, all of whom have forged their careers on the envious network of Slovenia’s beautiful ski slopes and cross-country trails.

There’s no better place to practice this incredible sport than on the most awesome cross-country ski trails Slovenia has to offer. These well-maintained runs of varying difficulty are located in the Julian Alps, where nature has provided the perfect landscape for indulging in winter sports. The cross-country trails leading from the winter hub of Kranjska Gora, past the famous ski-jumping centre at Planica, towards the Tamar Valley, are simply exquisite. Then there’s the Pokljuka Plateau. Famous for its Biathlon World Cup and exceptionally stunning surroundings, Pokljuka is the crème de la crème of cross-country skiing. The trails, which are suitable for all ages and levels of fitness, run across peaceful pastures and through mythical spruce tree forests. Ski tracks will be picked depending on the weather and snow conditions.

Like most places in Slovenia, the aforementioned cross-country ski destinations are easily accessible and can be enjoyed by anyone. Our expert guides will show you the proper techniques and lead you down the most optimal trails. Beginners will be shown all the basics needed to handle themselves on the snow, while more advanced cross-country skiers will find plenty of exciting challenges to tackle. Throw some nice weather into the mix and you’ve got yourself a truly unforgettable experience. So grab your ski poles and follow us!

I had never tried cross country skiiing before, so I needed someone to help me out. Klemen showed me everything and I was actually skiing by myself after just few hours. And he was VERY patient :D I rarely even get a chance to see snow, so this was amazing!
