So what's it like?
A friendly welcome awaits you at each of our three Slovenian ski resorts. Kranjska Gora, Bled and Bohinj offer uncrowded slopes, stunning scenery and accommodation options perfect for every age, group size, or budget.
The easternmost reaches of the Alps – the Julian Alps to be precise – are much more peaceful and relaxing than some of the mega resorts further west.
Best for families – The beautiful lakeside resort of Bled offers easy skiing via a chairlift from the town centre, along with plenty of other off-slope activities to keep the kids happy.
Best for beginners – The Vogel ski area, overlooking Lake Bohinj, has a range of beginner and intermediate pistes, all overseen by a superb ski school.
Best for intermediates – Kranjska Gora is perhaps the best known of the country’s resorts, as one of its steeper black runs often hosts World Cup races; or brave skiers when the tour is not in town.
We’ve got a range of accommodation to suit every taste – choose from modern hotels with luxurious pools and spa facilities, or cosy guest houses that will feel just like home.
Slovenian resorts also benefit from very agreeable transfer times. Bled is just 40 minutes away from Ljubljana’s airport, while it takes around an hour to access Kranjska Gora.
Slovenia's ski resorts have more in common with Austria of days gone by, than any of the former Eastern Bloc countries.
Much like the capital Ljubljana, much of the architecture in the mountain villages is from the Baroque and medieval period, with ancient monuments and beautiful old churches set among the thick forests and snowy peaks.
Families love coming to Slovenia, as there’s plenty of activities to keep everyone busy – from snowshoeing to dog sledding, ice skating to spa days.
Food and drink
Slovenia’s cuisine tends to be a blend of neighbouring Italian and Austrian, with plenty of great pasta and cured meats available for instance. Meanwhile, local specialities in mountain restaurants include a delicious wild boar goulash.
Kranjska Gora’s bigger bars and restaurants play host to some lively après, but on the whole, Slovenian resorts offer a more relaxed alternative to evening activities.
