Can you imagine a summer holiday where, instead of lying idly on the beach, you boldly take on a series of adrenaline-filled adventures? In Slovenia, an increasing number of locals and foreigners alike choose this way of spending their holiday, or whatever free time they have on their hands. Contact with nature: good. Level of adventure: high!

So it is hardly surprising that Slovenes conquer the world’s highest peaks, climb the most difficult mountain faces, and set world records in the boldest of sporting feats, if extreme sports are indeed one of the nation’s favourite pastimes: this can be either a visit to an ‘adrenaline park’, tackling white water rapids in a raft, or on a hydro-speed board, a parachute jump, or a free-ride mountain bike descent.
