A one week hiking and multi activity trip in Slovenia...
A rewarding week of trekking in the Julian Alps, rafting the turquoise Soca river and biking the spectacular Slovenian countryside.
- Overnight in mountain hut
- Mountain biking
- Mini Rafting
- Central valley location
The base for the trip is Tolmin, a small picturesque town on the outskirts of the Alps, steeped in history. Tolmin is the centre of the pristine Soca valley and is ideally located to take advantage of the surrounding Julian Alps and crystal clear rivers, making it the perfect base for outdoor enthusiasts looking to enjoy a selection of land & water activities.Throughout the trip you will be looked after by an experienced team of friendly local guides.
Trek in the clear Alpine air, raft down the river Soca surrounded by high alpine peaks, take in the magnificent scenery as you cycle through the Slovenian valleys and swing through the trees in the adventure park. An exhilarating trip, not to be forgotten quickly.
Unlike standard rafting, with mini-rafting you and your group (3 people to a raft) board the raft alone while the guides accompany you from kayaks. Mini rafts are much more monoeverable than standard rafts.Before you set off, the guides will explain, demonstrate and teach you everything you need to know about safety and paddling techniques. You leave your dry clothes in the minibus. The first stop on the river is at Kamno Bridge, where a surprise will be waiting for you. After a short break on dry land, you return to your rafts and continue on towards Tolmin. Other treats en route include swimming and plunging into the Soca, a water slide, and lots of fun and laughs. The trip ends at Volce Bridge, where you can change back into dry clothes. Our cook will be waiting for you here, with local, home made food. Our picnic location also has facilities for additional recreation (beach volleyball, football, badminton, children's playground, etc.), or you can simply lie back and listen to the flowing river.
Venture off with your guide on your mountain bikes, to discover more sides to this stunning region. Wind your way along quiet roads, off-the-beaten track paths and through lush meadows. This is a fantastic region for cycling. If you get too hot you can cool down by taking a dip in the crystal clear river.

Q. Are we covered by insurance during the activity?
A. Yes. All customers are covered by our own accident insurance during the activities we provide. We would recommend that you take out your own general travel insurance as well to cover you for other aspects of your trip.
Q. Can an activity be cancelled and when?
A. An activity can be cancelled because of poor weather conditions such as an excessively high water level in the case of water activities or rain in the case of the adrenaline park. Cancellation Policy: if we need to cancel; due to a dangerous water level, we may cancel certain activities and suggest that clients take different activity. If this is not possible, you will get a full refund.
Q. Do I need a visa to travel?
A. As Slovenia is a member of the EU you will not need a visa to enter if you are a British passport holder. There is a toursit tax to pay but this is often included in your holiday price.
Q. Do we need special equipment?
A. For water activities, just a swimsuit and a towel; for other activities, gym shoes and comfortable sports clothes.
Q. Is there an age limit?
A. The minimum age limit for the family holiday is 10. Some of the more demanding activities such as hydrospeed, canyoning and classic rafting have a lower age limit of 15. Visitors to the adrenaline park must be at least 150 cm tall
Q. What abilities are we expected to have?
A. None of the activities require any previous knowledge or experience. Normal physical and mental health and the ability to swim in the case of water activities are all that is required. We do not accept guests under the influence of alcohol and other psychoactive substances. Our activities are not recommended for pregnant women. Guests with certain pre-existing health conditions (asthma, injuries, etc.) are advised to consult a guide.
Q. What about safety?
A. It is important to be aware that all outdoor activities include a certain degree of risk, and this should not be underestimated. We can, however, reduce risk to a minimum, which we do by using highly trained and experienced guides who satisfy all requirements for the individual activities, and by observing safety rules covering every aspect of safety from your arrival at the centre to your happy return. Additionally, only high-quality, fully-tested equipment is used for all activities.
Q. What happens if its raining?
A. We know from experience that rain simply makes water activities even more fun! Once you are in the water, you forget about the rain, or rather you start to enjoy it and the unique mist clouds that form just above the surface of the water.
If you have any questions about this activity please do not hesitate to ask.
