2# Skiing at Krvavec

Krvavec should be on your list once you decide visiting Slovenia in winter! It's not the only place to do that, we'd say Vogel is a great ski resort too if you'd like to both enjoy skiing and soaking up the epic views over the Lake Bohinj. For night skiing, check out Stari vrh!

4# Ice Skating in Ljubljana

Ice skating in Ljubljana on an area of 2.000 km2 is one of the newest cool things you can do in the capital city in the winter time! It first opened in November 2017 and lasted all until January.

6# Ski Touring at Klek

We adore ski touring once we're back in Slovenia! So many remote places where you're basically alone! One of the cool places to do this winter activity in Slovenia is Klek! One reached the top, the view over the surrounding mountains and hills will blow you away! Another cool place to do that is Zelenica.
