A winter wellness wonderland

Green, active, and healthy Slovenia is interwoven with natural springs of both thermal and mineral water. The benefits of these thermal and mineral waters were enjoyed already by the Romans, as well as other European monarchies. Slovenia treats visitors with a combination of winter activities in the snow and wellness, offering them both an active way to spend time in nature, as well as preventive care for their health.

The attractive natural treasures, the rich spa tradition, the world-class wellness programs, and the winter atmosphere combine to make a true winter wonderland, whose story is about an active and healthy Slovenia. The spas offer a wide range of beneficial effects from the thermal and mineral waters, while the surroundings are perfect for an active break in nature. Choose from among 15 natural spas, numerous wellness centres, kilometres of groomed ski slopes and hiking trails, or just enjoy yourself in the stunning views of the snow-capped mountains.

Several of the wellness centres are located right by the ski resorts, so skiers can take advantage of the programs of relaxation and regeneration after a hard day on the slopes. At Kranjska Gora in the Gorenjska region, a world-renowned ski town, you can relax at the HIT Alpinea wellness centre. You can also visit Terme Snovik near Krvavec ski resort.
