If the thought of all the activities is leaving you exhausted, don’t worry, help is at hand! Slovenia is also home to a wide variety of thermal spas and health resorts (wellness centres), where you can recuperate after (or indeed instead of) all that exercise.
The closest to Chalet Lenart is Terme Snovik – around 20 minutes’ beautiful drive away. Here you will find indoor and outdoor pools, water slides, saunas and access to a host of spa treatments and massages in a lovely mountain valley location.
The water at Snovik was recognised as having healing qualities in 2006 by the Ministry of Health, especially for ailments such as rheumatism, arthritis, back pain and osteoporosis.
We’re not sure that we’ve ever been ‘healed’ but it is a fantastic day out with something for all the family and you’re sure to go home feeling relaxed and happy.
An interesting ‘healing’ location near to the chalet is at Tunjice, only a 10 minute drive away.
Here the claim is that ‘body and soul alike can be comforted by the healing power of "energy" spots which are recognised by man to have healing qualities for different parts of a human body’.
Visitors can have their aura checked by a Kyrlian camera, or they can opt for individual therapies or just drink the special water.
Worth a trip if you’re into this sort of thing!
