You can visit Slovenia's diversed regions and experience a view of the Soča and the upper Sava river valleys below Mount Triglav, Slovenia’s highest mountain, or head to beautiful Karst region planted with olive groves and vineyards, with some of the most beautiful underground worlds of our planet.


Kayaking on Soča- author J.SkokIf you prefer sea breeze you can visit Slovenian coast and the unique Strunjan cliff which ascends 80 metres above the sea and is the highest cliff wall on the Adriatic coast. On the other hand Slovenia is also known as a green country, which you can see with your own eyes if you head to wine-growing hills with small churches, castle and monasteries and mighty forests of Dolenjska or Pohorje.

Slovenia is also a motherland of many world known sportsmen and has a long history in kayak and canoe disciplines.
