The area offers budget ski breaks that are around £200 cheaper than other comparable resorts. TUI Airways is also launching the only non-stop flights from London Gatwick to Sarajevo International Airport as a new flight route for the ski season.
The UK’s largest ski tour operator is aiming to make its winter getaways as affordable as possible for its customers.
Bosnia and Herzegovina is now the cheapest ski destination it has on offer, and is an average of £200 cheaper than other value destinations.
“We are thrilled to be launching Bosnia and Herzegovina as a brand-new destination for Crystal Ski Holidays this year – an off the beaten track resort rich with culture and history,” said Crystal Ski Holidays Managing Director, Chris Logan.
“Our teams work hard to continue to scale up our product offering to suit all customer needs, especially budget-friendly destinations that help skiers and snowboarders get out to the slopes at a time when we are all feeling the pinch,” he added.
Sarajevo hosted the Winter Olympics back in 1984 and the new destination ticks lots of boxes for skiers and snowboarders alike, according to Crystal Ski Holidays.
Crystal says it has fantastic slopes for beginners, traditional mountain meals packed full of flavour, and of course, the wallet-friendly prices.
The tour operator is launching two resorts in the destination, Jahorina and Bjelašnica.
Jahorina, Bosnia and Herzegovina’s largest ski area, is a 45-minute transfer from Sarajevo International Airport and offers speedy lifts, and scenic, tree-lined skiing with three beginner areas.
The altitude ranges from 1,300 – 1,900 metres and presents the opportunity for great snow conditions, with 47km of pistes.
Bjelašnica, best for intermediates, has a wide variety of terrain and pushes snow lovers’ abilities with the 20km of slopes on offer.
Also on offer is night skiing, cross-country skiing and some great sets of live music nearby.
Bosnia and Herzegovina has been added to Crystal Ski Holidays’ already wide-ranging destination portfolio, which spans more than 100 resorts in eleven destinations across Europe and North America.
“We’re proud that we have as wide a range of holidays on sale than ever before and have returned to higher than pre-pandemic booking levels, so it’s clear customers are eager to get back to the slopes. We’re excited to take them there again this winter,” added Chris Logan, Crystal Ski Holidays Managing Director.
To get Brits away to the Bosnian and Herzegovinian mountains, TUI Airways will be launching the only non-stop flights from London Gatwick to Sarajevo International Airport flying weekly on Tuesdays from 20th December 2022 to 3rd January 2023, and then on Sundays from 8th January until 9th April 2023.
