The Nordic Centre Planica is an exceptional environment for continuing the Slovenian tradition of sky jumping and flying, as well as for cross-country training and competing.

Within the framework of the Nordic Centre Planica, seven new ski jumping hills were built with the accompanying facilities. The ski-flying hill built by the brothers Gorišek was also renovated.


The central building, which represents the centre for cross-country skiing and ski jumping, comprises a viewing platform, the Planica Museum on two floors, a wind tunnel and catering facilities.

In addition to external cross-country skiing tracks in the winter months, it is also possible to use the covered internal cross-country skiing polygon in the warmer months.


Are you up for an adventure? Descend down the largest ski flying hill in the world with the Planica Zipline!

The youngest visitors can have fun in the adrenaline park aimed at children, as well as in the children's corner in the central cross-skiing facility.
