Winter time in Bovec

Bovec is a popular holiday destination, well known for its outdoor activities, natural attractions and World War I sites.  

Apart from numerous popular summer outdoor activities, Bovec offers unique winter adventures and gorgeous winter scenes. When there is enough snow, 8 km of prepared easy cross-country skiing tracks are available in Bovec, 3 km of more demanding tracks in Čezsoča and another 3 km in Log pod Mangrtom.

Sledding down a snowy mountain road is definitely a unique experience you will never forget. Great fun for all ages! By day you can enjoy the fabulous winter landscape; by night, burning torches romantically illuminate your way. You can also experience a romantic husky sled ride in the surroundings of Bovec. 

Fabulous snow covered Alpine slopes invite ski touring fans. You should hire a ski trouring guide who will lead you to the safest and the most suitable places for you. In addition, heli-skiing is starting in January 2015 (contact the Tourist Information Centre in Bovec for more information).

Ski fans can ski in the nearby Italian ski centres in Sella Nevea and Tarvisio. The guests staying in the Bovec area for at least two nights get a discount on ski passes and a free transfer to these two ski centres. They can also get a discount on ski passes in the nearby Slovene ski centre Kranjska Gora. If you do not have your own ski equipment, you can of course rent it in Bovec. And if your skis are not in the best shape, a ski service will take care of them. 

In the low winter temperatures, many waterfalls turn into ice-sculptures and attract ice climbers. The frozen waterfalls in Trenta and Log pod Mangrtom are very popular.

Some activities can be done throughout the year; just the scenery changes with the seasons. One  such activity is zip lining that involves gliding high above the ground along a suspended steel cable.

Short or long, walking tours in the valley are popular throughout the year. Moreover, snow covered ground should be no problem: snowshoes are the right solution for a deep snow cover. Some sports agencies offer day or night snowshoeing walks.

And why not enjoy a sauna or hot tub or pamper yourself with a massage, aromatherapy, pedicure or manicure? 

Besides all the activities, a long list of festive events is waiting for you in December (check the events calendar on our webpage www.bovec.si).

After a fully day of adventures you can find a good night's sleep at Hostel Bovec. The first hostel in Bovec municipality is located just five minutes from the main square.
