Day 1: Introduction to cross country skiing at the world cup biathlon centre

Your guide will collect you from Ljubljana airport at 10:30 am, before heading over to your hotel. Along the way, you will stop off at the beautiful Lake Bled.

After you have settled into your room and had some lunch, you will head over to the world cup biathlon centre for your first cross country skiing session. It's a pretty impressive place! After a few hours of developing your technique, and getting used to the skis, you will enjoy some time in the sauna before your dinner.
