Fun on a sledge
There are many ways to spend a wonderful winter day outdoors in Slovenia. In addition to enjoying skiing at Slovenian ski resorts, cross-country skiing on well-maintained trails, or going on winter hikes through a snow-covered landscape, you can also find the child within and even slide down a hill on a sledge. No prior knowledge is needed to go sledging. Hire a sledge at facilities for hiring skiing and other equipment, which are usually found right next to ski slopes. Just about anyone can have fun sledging – from youngsters to senior citizens. Although you only need some snow and a hill to go sledging, make sure to look at our selection of locations where sledging could be particularly fun.
Winter experiences on Rogla
Rogla is a popular family ski centre, where there is something for everyone. To top off skiing on well-maintained runs, adrenaline-filled adventures in a snow park, fun for kids in the Devil’s Land and Pohorje Village, a hike through the surrounding area on snow shoes, and a ride in a horse-drawn carriage, you can also go night sledging. Finding a suitable hill for sledging will prove to be no problem during the day too. Alternatively, you can also go on a ride in a motor sledge (snowmobile).
When snow covers this wild Alpine valley in the heart of the Julian Alps, many opportunities for having fun in the snow arise. Sledging is one of them. One of the most popular sledging locations is the Pokljuka Plateau, which, due to easy access by car and the right altitude, is an ideal choice for sledging even when there is no snow in the valley. On Vogel, there is a sledging slope at the kids’ park, and you can hire a sledge at the gondola stations. You can find well-maintained sledging slopes in the valley, too.
Over the hills and through the valleys surrounding Kranjska Gora
In Kranjska Gora, you can go sledging down the hills in the surrounding area by day or with fire torches at night. If the weather permits, you can experience the charm of night sledging in Gozd Martuljek. Organised sledging is also possible in Krnica under the Vršič Pass if the conditions are right. Another great location for sledging is near the ski slope in Mojstrana. And make sure to go sledging in the picturesque Tamar Valley, too.
This ski centre, which has received the award for the best Slovenian ski resort a number of times, is just a few kilometres from the capital city of Ljubljana and it is perfect for both skiers and seekers of other winter experiences. After enjoying skiing during the day, you can also go night sledging down a well-maintained slope illuminated with floodlights. You don’t have to walk to the top of the steep hill, you can simply take a four-seat chairlift. You can hire a sledge if you book it beforehand.
Experience the charm of Velika Planina at night, too. You can go sledging on a well-maintained and illuminated sledging hill on weekends. A chairlift takes you from the gondola to the start of the sledging hill, and the hill is properly marked and secured. End your sledging evening in the pleasant atmosphere of one of the inns on Velika Planina.
Go sledging in Škofja Loka and its surrounding area
In Škofja Loka and its surrounding area, you can find many possibilities for sledging on different kinds of sledges. Not far from Škofja Loka, you can visit the Stari Vrh ski centre, where there is a sledging hill as a part of the snow park and even a ‘bobsleigh’ track. If you are looking to enjoy sledging higher up in the mountains, visit Soriška Planina, a ski centre between Bohinj and the Selca Valley. The Mišouh sledging hill, where you can go sledging by day or at night, is also very popular.
Go down the hill in a sledge or a pležuh sledge in the Maribor Pohorje Hills
In Maribor, the city of the oldest grapevine in the world, you can enjoy adventures in snow by visiting the Maribor Pohorje Ski Centre. Lovers of sledging can visit the well-maintained Stolp sledging track, where you can experience the joys of night sledging, and you can try sledging in a very special kind of sledge – pležuh, a traditional ski seat.
Are you eager to have even more sledging adventures?
There are always opportunities for sledging fun. For example, you can find sledging tracks in some ski centres, such as Golte, Cerkno, Kanin, or Celjska Koča. If you’d like to feel some adrenaline, you can go to the Karavanke Alps and, if the conditions are right, go tobogganing at your own risk in Ljubelj or Savske Jame above Jesenice. In the heart of the Kamnik and Savinja Alps, you can find excellent sledging hills in Jezersko and in the Logar Valley. In the Soča Valley, you can join organised sledging groups sledging down from Mt Kobariški Stol or in the Trenta Valley. Another dedicated sledging hill can be found next to the ski slope in Log pod Mangartom.
Visit Slovenia to enjoy winter fun
When snow covers the landscape and paints it white, you will have many reasons to enjoy some fun in the snow. In addition to well-maintained ski centres with runs that are suitable for anyone, you can also go on a daring adventure or enjoy some winter daydreaming as you go for a walk through the snow-covered landscape.
Enjoy skiing on well-maintained Slovenian ski slopes.
