When your heart skips a beat

Are you ever tempted to experience the freshness of wild rapids on clear rivers, to share the sky with birds, to bike along forest paths or climb a mighty cliff on your way to a gorgeous panoramic view? 

If you are even a little bit of an adrenaline junkie you should definitely visit Slovenia. Dare to experience something that will get your blood pumping and give you butterflies in your stomach. There's something for everyone. On the water, in the air, on the ground and under it.

What makes the adrenaline side of Slovenia something special?

Here are some reasons why Slovenia is an attractive destination for adrenaline enthusiasts.

With its diverse landscape in a relatively small area, Slovenia is a perfect place for adrenaline-filled adventures.

On adrenaline-filled adventures you can explore Slovenia from a different perspective.

There are more and more sports agencies in Slovenia that provide high-quality and safe adrenaline programmes with experienced guides.

Slovenia has a number of exceptional individuals who have helped shape the programme of adrenaline-filled adventures in Slovenia through their experiences gained around the world.

In Slovenia you can find various manufacturers of adrenaline sports equipment that are recognised and appreciated worldwide.

Slovenia has repeatedly proved to be an excellent organiser of events and international competitions in adrenaline sports.

Water

Feel the rush of freshness and adrenaline with adrenaline-filled adventures on water. Navigate wild rapids and discover stunning gorges.

Explore

Rafting is the number one adrenaline water adventure. Sit in a rubber boat in the company of experienced guides. Ride the wild river rapids and follow the flow of the current.

Another popular river activity is cruising down the river in a kayak or canoe. Beginners can start with tamer rivers, while more experienced paddlers will prefer taking on a tougher river challenge.

Put on a wetsuit, awaken the curious child within you and get ready for a hefty dose of adrenaline while canyoning. You will take a walk along the narrow riverbed, climb natural obstacles, make bold jumps into pools and slide down hair-raising waterfalls.

Hydrospeeding offers the most direct contact with the river. You have but a tiny watercraft under you that you steer with your flippers. You are also wearing protective water gear that protects you against any collisions with rocks.

If you're looking for the latest adrenaline challenge, you can try bellyak. Unlike hydrospeed, you use your arms to steer instead of your legs.

Sometimes the easiest way is the most fun. This could be said of taking a ride downriver on an inflatable inner tube.

Adrenaline that you can only experience in Slovenia

When looking for special experiences spiced to your taste with adrenaline, don't miss those bearing the Slovenia Unique Experience label. Experience something authentic, unique and boutique that will remain in your memory for a long time.
