Unforgettable winter experiences

Active Slovenia is a treasury of numerous activities and ideas on how to spend free time actively. Everyone can find something. Compete in a downhill race on a small wooden chair attached to a ski. Do you think rafts are only for water and rapids? Put on ski overalls instead of neoprene. Ski deep into the powdery snow while ski touring. For all lovers of climbing, winter offers ideal conditions for the unique experience of ice climbing.

Ski touring

In addition to numerous well-maintained ski trails and the ski centres, Slovenia offers many possibilities for ski touring. A particularly attractive area for ski touring is Triglav National Park. Get closer to pristine nature, breathe the fresh air and admire hidden views along the way. To learn more about the surroundings and for safer ski touring, you can also hire a guide who will make sure you don’t miss anything along the way.

Climbing on frozen waterfalls

Low temperatures in winter create amazing ice sculptures and forms. When rivers, streams and waterfalls freeze, they become ideal places for ice climbing. The difficulty and adrenaline experience are never the same twice. They change according to the weather conditions, the amount of ice and the surroundings. Put on warm clothes and crampons and pick up an ice-axe. The natural beauty of frozen water and overhanging rock walls awaits you.

Downhill run with a pležuh

A downhill race on a Pohorje pležuh will take you back into the past. The pležuh has been known in the Drava River Valley for more than 200 years. It has been used for fun in the snow, transportation into the valley and as a means of transport for various loads. Its main purpose today is for pleasure and an adrenaline experience while sliding downhill on a snowy slope. You slide downhill on a small chair attached to one ski, while balancing with your legs and abdominal muscles, which are already tense from laughing. Fun and unforgettable adventure are guaranteed.

18 winter holes

X Cross Golf or golf on snow is also unforgettable. Test your nerves and get the coloured ball into the hole in as few strokes as possible. In addition to a good game, your co-participants will create a truly competitive atmosphere.

Snow rafting

Rafting enthusiasts will confirm that rafting is one of the most adrenaline-filled experiences possible. This also goes for snow rafting. Forget the sleigh. Sit on an inflatable raft and float down the snowy hillside. This is a great activity for groups. Have some fun on the snow with your friends that you will never forget.
