So what's it like?
Beautiful scenery and a great value for money ski holiday.
Kranjska Gora is a small resort with a ski area that’s perfect for younger families and also for beginners to build confidence. Kranjska Gora is in Slovenia's Julian Alps, and everything is geared towards making your first ski experience a very good one. There’s a top-notch ski school that specialises in getting students to build on their skiing ability, so you'll be in safe hands when learning the basics. If you've progressed past the nursery slopes, there are some challenging runs to get stuck into - including a black run used for FIS World Cup races.
Kranjska Gora is a picture-book village and lies just a few miles from both the Italian and Austrian borders. There's some vibrant après ski in the village if you want it, but if you prefer to keep things low key, then that's not a problem either - it’s a great place to relax. This family-friendly resort has some fantastic hotels, providing you with high standards of accommodation and service, mostly at very good value.
Also, if you have young children, look out for our fantastic Pepi Penguin & Whizz kids' clubs in Kranjska Gora. Qualified childcare specialists are on hand daily for skiing and non-skiing children from 6 months to 12 years. The kids' clubs are available to book from whichever hotel you choose in Kranjska Gora. Although, for ultimate convenience, stay at the Hotel Alpina where both clubs are based.
