Adventure weekend - short breaks in Slovenia

Short break Adventure Holiday

The perfect located between Croatia & Italy is the startling sight of the 'small' but remarkable Slovenia. It is a country of geographic extremes, with high mountains (Julian Alps), green meadows & emerald rivers all within a short distance of each other. Our travel times to our adventure holiday activities are quick, meaning more fun time for you. Our short break programs are really designed for adults: couples, groups and solo adventure holidays. We do have some older teenager adventure holidays designed for weekend experiences, but the majority of guests booking this program are more mature.

This elegant country will play host to your active holiday, and you’ll be situated in a small town called ‘Tolmin’, taking advantage of the surrounding hills, fresh flowing rivers and unseen trails, making it the perfect base for your active weekend break. With other like-minded people, you'll be experiencing the finest adrenaline flowing sports action. Together, we will take on kayaking, hydro speeding, canyoning and the famous Slovenia mountain biking holiday routes, you might have read about.

These adventure breaks are an attractive option for people with limited free time, presenting amazing value for money! You'll discover many aspects of the Soca Valley region during the 4 days you spend with us. After each day of fun fuelled active break experiences, we relax, drink beer/wine, share stories underneath the stars and EAT! Eventually we sleep! We have many wonderful memories and continue to invite new and returning clients to Tolmin. The BBC staff came to try our outdoors centre and featured our program on the TV. We have been featured in the following UK papers: Guardian, Times, Telegraph, London Metro, and Evening standard. You can trust our Slovenia adventure holidays team, as we are the pioneers.

Adventure weekend - short breaks in Slovenia


Day 1: We say hello! Night canoe safari

Our team will meet you at the airport on arrival with a greeting sign & a big smile. We then transfer from the airport to Tolmin, toast the new arrivals with a welcome drink and have an introductory meeting. The evening is yours to take it easy, have a nice dinner, speak to the locals and make new friends. Tolmin has more than enough to entertain your selves with!

Day 2: Canyoning & Kayaking & Climbing

The picture perfect Prsjak gorge is the starting point for your active adventure break. Within this unspoiled environment we'll begin to jump, slide, swim, splash & descend down the naturally moulded water shoots & pools. This morning, the 27m waterfall will provide the ultimate adventure holiday test experience. What a way to wake and start the day! There are many great places to try canyoning in Slovenia but no where else in Europe, can you try a 27m canyon shoot. It's quite incredible!

This afternoon, we transfer to the entrance point of the Soca as River kayaking is the name of the game. Learning how to navigate your way downstream and Eskimo roll will be the next highlight of this fun active break day. Kayaking in Slovenia is an incredible experience, allowing a lot more freedom on a river than any other adventure sports.

This evening you will get to grips with the art of night climbing,  on our specially designed high ropes course. Based on treetops where the Tolminka and Soca River’s join together, you’ll be indulging in some Monkey Madness & be swinging from the trees in no time. It's quite surreal doing this at night, and its a very rewarding experience. If you have a problem with heights, then we can offer alternative ideas.

Day 3: White Water Rafting & Mountain Biking

Day begins with a short transfer to the Sentviska plateau, where the biking starts. We will cycle through lovely villages in untouched surroundings with a sweeping 360 panoramic views of the Julian Alps. You'll negotiate steep descents, satisfying ascents all suited to all abilities of rider from those new to narrow road riding to those more experienced biking riders familiar with the terrain. We will continue on our mountain bikes & hit the trail towards the town of Kobarid. Which is conveniently located next to the emerald green Soca River, where you can jump in & cool down. Next stop is our afternoons final destination - Nadiza valley. This is a picturesque, tiny & well-concealed beautiful town, situated just next to the Italian border. An invigorating swim here is one the highlights of the day and comes highly recommend. for more ideas for Slovenia mountain biking holidays read our other pages.

After lots of water, maybe a beer! and lots of food, we are ready for part 2, white water rafting in Slovenia. Oh Yes, its time to take on the river rapids. Half the day will be spent on a rafting white water trip on the Soca river. This is a Grade 3 river rapid mission, so not to be taken lightly. This is extreme adventure sports, guided by our top professionals, that white water raft with the very best. When working as a team, you soon find new best friends, so at this stage, we don;t have any solo adventure holiday clients, just a group of good friends. As a team, we'll take on the pulsating river, trying to take command of the biting white waters. This afternoon, will be full of thrills, spills and screams! Really alot of fun! Half way, we stop and jump in the waters, to relax and drink in the Soca waters. This is the perfect end to an awesome adventure break holiday.

Day 4: We say good bye!

Once you have digested a late breakfast, there will time to pick up some souvenirs & take a final wander about the town. Then we must say our farewells and take you to the airport for your flight home. This part of the Slovenia active weekend break which we least like as we must say good-bye to our new friends we have made. Nevertheless, at our company we say 'until the next time! We never say goodbye!' We keenly await your next Slovenia activity break with us.
