On our recent trip to the Balkans had the fortune (or success) to devote several days to enjoy Slovenia,a country that many forget in their routes to Europe.Slovenia already had dazzled us a few months before you go.It was at the " Savoring Slovenia ",organized by Slovenian Tourist Board and the group Interface Tourism .In the video of the event to which I have linked some prints appear babbling about the country,which had a pint wonderful photos.Months later I confirm that the photos were not nearly the fascinating reality.Slovenia is simply stunning.Since we returned commercial alike tourist office (I even bought the official shirt with the logo "I Feel sLOVEnia").We could talk at length about its attractions,but in this article I will focus only on adventure sports,recreational activities or what has been called active tourism.
Slovenia is a small country.It has an area comparable to that of Valencia and just over two million inhabitants (unless Galicia).Almost half of the area is covered by lush forests and about 11% of the territory is protected land (a National Park three forty Parks Regional Parks and Landscape Heritage).The jewel in the crown is the Triglavski Narodni Park ( Triglav National Park ).This area and its vicinity are probably the best in the country for adventure sports and is what we know firsthand.Adventure sports in the Triglav National Park
The only Slovenian National Park is named after Mount Triglav,the highest in the country (2.864m) and national symbol depicted on the shield.The Park is located within the Julian Alps in northwestern Slovenia,on the border with Austria and Italy.In any of its main towns is easy to find several companies that offer the widest range of activities and sports to do in the mountains or in one of its crystalline rivers.We highly recommend staying in the area of Soca River Valley and book activities Bovec or Kobarid (Tolmin and Trenta not met,but can also be interesting).The prices of the activities are neither cheaper nor more expensive than in Spain.You can find a pdf with the prices of the company " Soca Rafting "on this link .We did rafting with them and it was great,but in August the waters are too quiet if you want adrenaline.Yes,there are icy and lets dip as new!Lupe also were encouraged to try paragliding with one of the Basques who had met that day.In this case hired through the tourist office.Both agreed that it is a unique experience. Flying over those mountains,from which they can be Austria and Italy,it has to be fascinating.I pulled back for the money and because they had seen clear what to be dropped from these peaks,however Lupe recommended for all audiences.Apparently there is no sense of "strain" and up there you do not feel dizzy.Next I'll have to try it!Also very popular are the "canyoning" (canyoning),kayaking,hydro speed,the canoe,the mountan-bike tours,free climbing,caving,senderimo,etc..In short,you can not go to Slovenia and practice at least a couple of these activities!
Other highly recommended areas Triglav Park and its surroundings are those of Kranjska Gora,Bohinj and Bled famous.The latter two are particularly noted for their pristine lakes surrounded by woods,so they are ideal for quiet activities such as rowing or hiking.Slovenia has two sections of long distance hiking (E6 and E7) covering a total of 950km.In the Slovenian mountains are 7, 000 km.of marked trails,with 165 cabins,mountain refuges or bivouacs.As for Kranjska Gora (located on the Sava River Valley),offers many of the possibilities that we have discussed in the Soca River Valley,but is best known as a ski resort.Any activity that has to do with the snow and ice we can make here.

Calendar. I just watched some of Rick Steve's outing in the Slovenia area. Now that the area is safe for tourism, and seeing how stunning the country side is, i would love to see some great pics from there and the USA.
