Slovenia – The Ultimate Active Adventure Holiday

STORY BY Emmanuelle 31st May 2018

Home to the Alps, the Mediterranean, the Pannonia Plain and the Karst, Slovenia is one of the most green and diverse countries on the planet.

Slovenians share a love for nature and outdoor activities with opportunities for adventures throughout the year, from the beautiful coastline to hiking in the Julian Alps, kayaking in the upper Soča valley, and skiing the awesome mountain peaks of Kranjska Gora.

You’re invited to explore a year of outdoor adventures in Slovenia. During summer, water sports enthusiasts delight in rafting and canyoning through deep gorges and past dramatic waterfalls, surfing on the historic coastline and stand-up paddle-boarding on serene lakes and stunning salt flats. Capital city Ljubljana is the only place in the world where visitors can try stand-up paddle-boarding on a river flowing through a city, the Ljubljanica. A perfect opportunity to mix the culture with active and adventure experience, delivering a perfect Active City Break holiday.

In spring and autumn there’s nothing better than experiencing the vivid colours of the changing seasons through the extensive biking and hiking trails, from easier short trails along the valleys and foothills to demanding trails in high mountains with outstanding views of theAlpine peaks.

The newly re-opened Planica Nordic Centre boasts the world’s steepest zipline, a 566m long adventure that allows adrenaline seekers to experience the feeling of ski jumping off the world’s longest flying hill. Slovenia is the perfect active holiday destination for everyone!

A special tip: Adria Airways is flying Manchester – Ljubljana twice a week during the summer season 2018!
