Skiing holidays

All our ski holidays can be seen here but......

Cerkno is also a ski resort in winter offering a 20km ski area. It is quite small for most British requirements but for those who have never skied before, it is an excellent option since the prices are so much cheaper than many of the more headline ski resorts. If you would like a ski quote for Cerkno, do contact us by email or call us on 0203 137 7678.
