Fun for children – where everything happens for the first time
Encounter fairy-tale heroes in the middle of green meadows and forests. Enter into an animal kingdom and venture down a wild water slide. Here, you can make your first attempts at skiing or enter the subterranean world for the first time. Get ready. The fun is only just beginning.
Slovenian ski resorts are quite suitable for children. Short slopes, dynamic terrains, courses for children, and numerous ski schools make it possible for their first skiing experience to be enjoyable and fun. Children especially enjoy Kranjska Gora, Rogla, Krvavec, and Vogel.
Sledding is great fun for the entire family. Head to one of the sledding courses in Kranjska Gora, Krvavec, Rogla, Velika planina, etc. At times of heavy snowfall, sledding is also possible on many other hills.
Unforgettable water adventures await you in various water parks. They offer slides, pools, waves, and many other fantastical attractions. Visit the Aqualuna water park in Podčetrtek, the Terme Čatež Spa and the Terme 3000 Moravske Toplice Spa.
Unique and exciting adventures. Test your resourcefulness, adventurous spirit, and climbing skills. Head to the Postojna, Bled, Geoss, or Cerkno Fun Park adventure parks.
In summer, there's nothing better than to find refreshment in crystal-clear rivers and healing waters in the middle of nature. The rivers Soča, Nadiža, Kolpa or Drava are only some of the rivers where it is especially pleasant in the summer. Many camp sites and other green accommodation facilities, such as tree houses, are located next to rivers.
Visit the hills
Slovenia is a green paradise for hikers. Even children, who are just discovering authentic natural experiences in the hills, can climb many of the mountain peaks. Feel the love of movement and, together with your children, learn about the mountain lifestyle. Velika Planina, Kranjska Gora, Bled, Bohinj ... choose where you want to head to the hills.
Spend your holiday in the kingdom of friendly animals. You and your youngest travellers can visit Postojna Cave and see the unique olm (or ‘human fish’). Also, visit the elegant Lipizzaner horses in Lipica, one of the most renowned stud farms in Europe. Enjoy your visit to the zoo in Ljubljana, European Green Capital 2016, and enjoy the homeliness of tourist farms.
Slovenia is an ideal destination for a family getaway in all seasons. The youngest visitors are excited about adventures in nature and many fun programmes at museums, in theatres, and centres for children. The Kekec Land in Kranjska Gora is a true experience in nature, and the Pippi Longstocking Festival in Velenje is wildly imaginative.
The fun continues ...
Slovenia is an ideal destination for a family holiday and trips with children in all seasons.
Spend your holiday in the heart of mountainous Slovenia. Walk through vibrant and untouched nature that is criss-crossed by 10,000 kilometres of marked and arranged hiking trails. You can choose from 175 mountain huts or spend your nights in hotels and camps for hikers.
Treat yourself to a swim in some of the many thermal spas and swimming pools. In summer, take a dip in the sea, lakes or rivers. Slovenia is rich in natural water resources. Visit Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj or one of the many natural swimming areas located on the coast.
Equestrianism and horseback riding in Slovenia have a centuries-old tradition thanks to the Lipica Stud Farm, the cradle of the world-famous Lipizzaner horses. Equestrian centres, tourist farms and ranches offer various options for horseback riding in fenced areas around farms, in meadows, and in forests.
