Planica the Slovenian Winter Sport Snow Queen

  • by

2023 will be the year when our Slovenian snow queen Planica will shine. The Nordic WSC 2023 will take place between 20 February to 6th of March. In 2023 Planica will host tens of thousands of fans, lovers of these sports that believed all along that Planica will be the event true to its history. Nestled in the embrace of the Julian alps, the Tamar Valley is a destination that hides the humping hill in its core.

Planica already wanted to host the World Championships 2017, 2019 and 2021, but lost against Lahti, Seefeld, and Oberstdorf. The fourth attempt was now successful for Slovenes and so World Championships in the Nordic disciplines will be held in the Planica Nordic Center for the first time ever.

Visiting Planica in 2023 offers multiple options for the travel organizers which will deal with requests for fans, delegations and national teams. As an established Slovenia DMC agent we offer support by planning the accommodations, transfers to and from the event venue and more.

Destination Planica is also a perfect choice for larger groups of corporate events where activities are spread and planned throughout the day. Accommodation is best suggested to be in Kranjska Gora where the cosines and easy access of the village re-creates a nice alpine atmosphere. A well planned Slovenia winter incentive is a great value for all participants.

Planica jumping hill dates back to early 1930 and since then is the Slovenian sport’s masterpiece. Its presence in the world cup ever since, brought the sport tradition into the hearts of every Slovene. Each year, Planica is hosting the finals of the world cup, it is the Slovenian festival. People enjoy taking part in the event from around Slovenia and other countries.

Planica became also a must see destination in Slovenia. Organising a leisure group program for the event in Planica offers multiple choices.
