White water sports
Slovenia is one of Europe's most popular destinations for white water sports. White water rapids can be found only a few kilometres from Ljubljana, on the river Sava near the village of Tacen and the small town of Medvode. A large number of different trips including, among other things, rafting, kayaking and canyoning, are available from local tourist agencies. Particularly popular is the valley of the river Soča, whose rapids are famous around the world.
Exploration of nature and its unusual features can be a source of unforgettable outdoor experiences. Slovenia is a country offering extraordinary variety in a very small area.
Activities available include anything from mountaineering and climbing to river and boat cruises and explorations of the wonderful underground world of karst caves. A large number of tourist farms within the region offer horse riding and horse-drawn carriage rides.
Forests, which provide an excellent location for a range of different outdoor adventures, cover over half of the territory of Slovenia. Recent times have seen the opening of several outdoor adventure parks offering tree-top adventures and other adrenaline-fuelled outdoor activities.
