Are you searching for winter adventures? Destinations in the Julian Alps might just be the thing you are looking for. From high altitude snowy peaks (perfect for ski touring, snowshoeing - but only if you are skilled enough and properly equipped) to cheeky frozen valleys, waiting to be discovered on cross-country trails. Here you'll find neatly groomed ski slopes and toboggan runs for all walks of life and all skill sets. And if you not too keen on snow the Soča Valley (sometimes) and Brda (for sure) will keep you busy throughout the year with green winter hiking and cycling options.  Find your best fit and book your winter getaway right now.
