Dialysis Ski Holidays
The Travel Puzzle are now offering dialysis ski holidays, simply ski holidays combined with your dialysis treatment. There is a choice of hotels and the flexibility of choosing how many days you would like to ski and only paying for that many. The holiday is tailored to measure your requirements on number of days treatment required, number of days skiing, number of nights and board basis , plus transfer arrangements. It is therefore suitable for families too, where only one person requires treatment.
Skiing is on the highest Alpine resort in Slovenia and is open until the beginning of May, with the pistes covered in natural snow only. There is a gondola cable car system from the base station conveying the skiers to the top station at an altitude of over 2,000 metres. The closest resort is Bovec and the majority of guests choose to stay in the hotel Kanin as it has its own pool and wellness centre for relaxing after a hard days’ skiing. The resort offers ski hire, ski school, snowboarding, ice skating, restaurants, bars etc.
The summer months opens up a whole new scope of activities and is ideal for family holidays to partake in numerous water/air or land based sports such as rafting, canyoning, paragliding, cycling, horse riding etc.
The close town of Kobarid, 13 miles away, is host to a new state of the art Dialysis centre. This close proximity allows the patient to have treatment after skiing, or before, on any day of the week from Mon-Fri. The town also has various forms of accommodation so there is also the possibility to base yourself there and travel into Bovec to Ski. Transfers to and from treatments and ski slopes can be arranged by the agency, as can transfers to and from the resort on arrival and departure. There are a wide range of airports you could book your flights to, including; Trieste, Venice and Treviso in Italy, Ljubljana in Slovenia or Klagenfurt in Austria.
The machines are new and Fresenius 4008s. Slovenia is part of the EU and has therefore to adhere to their standards of health and safety regulations. The patient is responsible for guaranteeing payment to the centre for treatment and for ensuring their own insurance policy whilst abroad.
