Swimming in lakes, rivers, swimming pools and by the beach
During the summer months, the Slovenian sea is a little piece of paradise, where you can enjoy sun, sea and Mediterranean dishes in the designated swimming areas. Those who prefer to refresh in colder natural rivers and lakes go to the Bled or Bohinj lakes, but various rivers, especially the Kolpa, are also very popular.Explore
Stand-up paddle-boarding is great fun because it is both an easy and an efficient sport. Stand-up paddle-boarding in Slovenia is more than just a sport because you can also enjoy the delightful views of natural attractions. On Lake Bled, you can explore the small island; you can cross Bohinj, Cerknica, Zbilje or Trboje lakes or descend along the Ljubljanica, Sava, Soča and Drava rivers. Or enjoy stand-up paddle-boarding at sea.
Boating and rafting
Rafting on Slovenian rivers is a tradition that is centuries-old and when you try it you’ll understand why. Riding a raft with friends is a wonderful experience that is so refreshing and also offers a fabulous view of nature. You can take a ride on a raft on the Drava, Sava and Krka rivers.
Slovenian waters are a paradise for fishermen. Rivers, lakes and ponds of various shades of green are home to many species of freshwater fish, with more than 20 species of interest for recreational fishing. You can keep your catch although Slovenia promotes fishing by means of "catch and release."Explore
