  • So what's it like?

    Beautiful scenery and a great value for money ski holiday.

    Kranjska Gora, up in Slovenia's Julian Alps, is one of the best ski resorts in the world for beginners - everything is really geared up to help you make your first slides on snow a great experience. Kranjska Gora has a top-notch ski school that week-in, week-out gets their students from zero to hero - so you'll be in safe hands when learning the basics. If you've progressed past the nursery slopes though there are still some challenging runs to get stuck into - all the way up to a black run used for FIS World Cup races.

    Kranjska Gora is a fairly small resort and ski area - great for younger families. It has a picturesque village and is 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.

    This family-friendly resort has some really fantastic hotels - providing you with high standards of accommodation and service to match - and all at fantastic value for money prices.

    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.

    • Pepi penguin childcare

      The Pepi Penguin Club available here - (6mths-4yrs) is run by our own qualified childcare staff and held in a dedicated room within the hotel equipped with games, toys and a special sleep area. Outdoor play included (weather & parental consent permitting).

    • Whizz/Whizzclusive childcare

      The Whizz Kids Club available here - (3yrs-11yrs) will provide plenty of fun filled days as our childcare staff offer a combination of care for non-skiing children. For children wanting to ski then our Whizzclusive option is available for children from 5 years which includes 6 x AM ski lessons, pick up and drop off from ski lessons, lunch and afternoon care by Crystal staff in the dedicated Whizz Kids club room.

    • £100 off Pepi penguin

      Save £100 on full day Pepi Nursery childcare (6 months to 4 years).

      Terms apply.

    • €50 hotel credit

      There'll be a credit of €50 waiting for you at the hotel with this offer. Use it in the bar or restaurant and save some cash while you're away.
