Unmissable sporting events and active breaks – see Slovenia in 2023

Friday, Jan 27, 2023 0


With the 2023 IBU World Cup Biathlon just finished in Pokljuka, Slovenia once again takes centre stage in the world sporting calendar.


Slovenia will play host to top flight competitions, showcasing the country as a world-class outdoor sporting destination. The season has already started and will continue with World Cup alpine skiing, biathlon, cross-country skiing, snowboarding and ski jumping, culminating in the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in Planica, the biggest sports event in Slovenia’s history!


If you’re a big fan of active pursuits and Slovenia has made it on to your 2023 travel wishlist, don’t worry if you can’t attend any of the events, you can always book an adventure holiday at a time that suits you.  All year round, the list of outdoor sports and activities on offer is a huge draw for visitors looking for an action-packed holiday set against a backdrop of some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world.


An active break in Slovenia ticks all the boxes for discerning travellers. Choose from family-friendly ski holidays, hiking, biking  and adrenaline fuelled adventures.


If you’re planning an imminent getaway, winter sports fans can get in on the action. The country has one of the longest traditions of skiing in Europe and the country’s ski resorts are well known for their impeccably maintained slopes, alongside some of the best-value skiing in the Alps. It is also very accessible, with the majority of ski resorts less than one hour from the airport making Slovenia one of the most convenient destinations for a winter break.


Or, if spring or summer is your preferred season, the choice of things to do is just as exciting as the weather heats up. Slovenia and active holidays go hand in hand and you’ll never be bored, that’s for sure.  If you’re craving that ultimate adrenaline rush, go for some rafting river action or spread your wings and descend from one of the Slovenian peaks with a day’s paragliding. Or if you want to combine your passion for hiking, climbing and swimming, get involved with some canyoning as this sport ticks all three boxes!


Or, for anyone who fancies a shot at abseiling, there’s the chance to experience the beauty of the Krn mountains. This new activity has been added to the Slovenia Unique Experiences offering. Visitors can get the chance to abseil down a vertical wall to a suspended platform where they can take in magnificent views while enjoying gourmet food.


Slovenia is fast-becoming the go-to destination for hikers too and it’s easy to see why.


Pohorje is an ideal starting point for visitors wanting to explore Eastern Slovenia. Ski slopes, hiking and mountain trails are plentiful in this beautiful pocket of the country. Close to Maribor, visitors can explore the natural wonder of the Pohorje mountains, yet still be conveniently close to the city. And, for  capturing some of the most jaw-dropping scenery, a trip to the Lovrenska lakes is a must. Be at one with nature with a hike along the gentle meadows and peat bog pools and be rewarded with outstanding views.


And if you want to get on your bike and pedal through the beauty of Slovenia, go for the Green Wellness Cycling Route, a 16-day cycling route that connects with the best Slovenian spas and natural health resorts along the way.


With so much to do in Slovenia, it is the top choice for anyone seeking an active holiday. You’ll make memories to last a lifetime. Last but certainly not least, Slovenia is one of the safest, greenest and most sustainable destinations in the world.
