Slovenia ski break, 4 days

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

We only use scheduled shared transport to and from daily activities and thus really try to minimize our carbon emissions.
We also encourage guests to use public transport while staying in Ljubljana or giving the example of the best option which is feet. :)

For those more courageous travelers, we can also provide the option of train transportation to Ljubljana.

Environment

Our company’s goal is to preserve the natural winter environment while providing the best winter holidays for our guest! Therefore, all our trips are small-sized, meaning we do not support mass tourism and try to minimize the impact on the natural habitat. This holiday allows you to visit various resorts in Julian Alps, Slovenia, while staying in the capital Ljubljana.

Most of Slovenia is under Natura 2000, so it is in a way preserved against human impact. In Slovenia, major ski resorts are located high enough, that their average season lasts for about 5 months. We always try to adapt our ski package to the best snow conditions at a certain time, so that the clients have the best holidays possible! Therefore, the itinerary is adapted due to snow cover. As this is a ski holiday, we use chairlifts and gondolas, however, most of them already work on solar energy.

We only do this trip when the snow season starts and as we have the possibility to change resorts daily according to the forecast, we can move to the resorts that are snow available. Also, as this is a skiing trip, we do not normally provide extra activities, however sledding or snowshoeing can be organized on request, and of course other indoor activities.

We always communicate with our guests about “green actions” that can be done on a daily bases and which can hugely impact the fight against climate change. Luckily, Slovenia is a country which promotes green & responsible traveling, therefore, we also try to include various green actions in our winter programs. So, we encourage our guest to recycle during their stay in Slovenia, different litter bins for plastic, glass, paper, food can be found almost everywhere, not buy plastic water bottles and fill their own bottles with tap water, not buy plastic bags, use public transport, etc.

We also promote locally produced food, by telling our guest about local markets, local restaurant, and dishes. We try to ensure that dishes during the holidays are made using locally sourced ingredients, very often just from the nearby valleys or small towns. We also tell them about Slovenian traditions, promote local culture and habits, so guest can get the pristine feeling of our country.

Community

Fun fact: skiing in Slovenia has a really long tradition and is considered as a national sport. During the years it has evolved a lot, however, we always try to include some interesting facts in the itineraries for our guest.

We only employ local guides, who also know the resorts by heart and thus can provide the best snow experience for everyone. As winter enthusiasts themselves, they always try to pass their love for the winter, nature, and Slovenia onto our guests.

Also, all the other suppliers we use, have a long-standing tradition of working in the tourism field and thus understand the importance of sustainable tourism. We use small, local transport providers and family-run hotels that are the best presentation of our country. That way we ensure that tourism income is spread to as many local suppliers as possible, thus distributing the benefits of tourism locally.

As a nation, we are quite “green-oriented” and we love to share our knowledge about responsible tourism and green initiatives to tourists!
