Find refreshment in Slovenian natural bathing areas

There’s nothing better than finding refreshment in a lake, a river, or in the sea, which simply draw you in whenever you happen to look at the crystal-clear water. Officially, you can find 48 bathing areas in Slovenia, where the quality of the bathing water is measured regularly. Among these, there are 30 bathing areas and 18 natural bathing sites. While safety and additional facilities are offered at natural bathing sites, in most natural bathing areas you are free to bathe at your own risk. Some natural bathing sites measure the quality of the bathing water themselves. In most cases, the quality of water is excellent. Give in to temptation and jump in!


Activities by the sea

The smell of the salt, wind in your hair and deep blue sea. Explore the endless possibilities of sports activities on and under the sea. Sail along the Slovenian coast and admire the diversity and coastal cities of Ankaran, Koper, Izola and Piran, Portorož. Adrenaline will rush through your veins while surfing or kiteboarding on the Adriatic Sea. Or while you dive into the mysterious underwater world.

Do you feel adrenaline rush?

Discover Slovenia from a different perspective. Experience the unforgettable. Surrounded by the breath-taking green nature, the sounds of the crystal-clear river rapids will make your heart jump. Go rafting, canoeing or kayaking to explore the picturesque gorges and feel the thrill of the breath-taking nature!


Stand-up paddle-boarding

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."
