Watching fireworks illuminate mountains, lakes and castles makes New Year’s Eve in Slovenia something you’ll struggle to forget.
Welcome January the Slovenian way with a glass of local schnapps, set off on a New Year’s Day ski safari or spa as you mean to go on in one of the wonderful wellness centres here... The Slovenian resorts are brimming with ways to enjoy a spectacular start to the year.
Whether you’re keeping the budget low in one of our brilliant 3-star properties or indulging in some New Year Luxury by booking a spa hotel (still costing less than you’d spend in France or Switzerland), we have a super range of hotel properties in Slovenia’s ski resorts.
If you book a Half Board package, many hotels cook up a cracking gala dinner on New Year’s Eve – or with B&B, you can book a table in one of the local restaurants, which often host dinner and dancing.
While we don’t have an awful lot of apartments on our books in Slovenia, what we do have is perfect if you prefer a DIY New Year’s holiday. Bring your Christmastime traditions to the Julian Alps, spend New Year’s Eve in your own space and be in control of the catering – whether that’s cooking yourself, eating out or a mix of both.
Some self-catered properties are standalone chalets, while others are part of an apartment block. Together with accommodation, flights and transfers, our packages are super value for money and save you the hassle of booking things separately.
Slovenia’s ski areas are small by European standards and don’t get as much snow as the ones in France at this time of year… But unless you want to ski a different resort each day (which is incredible), most visitors don’t come here for nonstop skiing. With lakes and National Parks for spectacular winter walks, fairy-tale castles and New Year’s Day concerts, there’s plenty to mix with your time on the slopes.
The Vogel ski area (near Bohinj) tends to get a good amount of snow, and has often already been open for a month or so when New Year comes around.
