trekking

With over half of the country covered by forest, and much of it covered in huge mountains, Slovenia is a world class wilderness experience. Spend 5 days hiking the alpine paradise of Triglav National Park. Trek through the spectacular Julian Alps, up jagged peaks, and along towering ridge lines. These days will be epic and challenging, but each night will finish in the remote Slovenian countryside with a hot meal and cozy bed to prepare you for the next days adventure.

The emerald waters of the Soca River carve their way through incredible rock formations that can be explored by climbing, jumping, rappelling and sliding on a canyoneering expedition.

Get into the sparkling Slovenian magic of the Soca river on a white water rafting excursion. Known as the “Emerald Beauty” for its vivid waters, this river takes you through overhanging rock formations, beautiful landscapes, and thrilling rapids. Learn to navigate these crystal waters with your team, cruising narrow canyons, and paddling in sync. Watch the Slovenian wilderness go by on river time.

sea kayaking
