Slovenia holiday, multi sport
Description of Slovenia holiday, multi sport
Thereís so much to enjoy on a Slovenia holiday, multi sport and outdoor activities being an absolute must.
The Julian Alps, towards the border with Italy in the west, is one such location where Slovenia excels with a range of adventure activities, including kayaking and white water rafting on the Soca River, certainly worth taking part in during a multi sport Slovenia holiday.
Basing yourself in the border town of Kobarid will place multi sport enthusiasts in a prime location with canyoning, mountain biking and zip-lining within the valleys and mountain foothills of the Julian Alps amongst the best in Europe.
This 8 day multi sports Slovenia holiday features 5 different activities with full instruction and guided supervision given by a local team to ensure excitement and thrill seeking are just as important as safety standards.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?
The activities were all fantastic, but I especially love the rafting. The cool water was a great relief from the sunny, warm weather. The rapids were fun but not too crazy, which suited my girlfriend nicely as she hadn't been rafting before and were a good introduction.
2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?
None of the activities are too taxing, except maybe the mountain biking, though the most strenuous part of that was cycling back uphill in the midday heat.
3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
I think the locals made fairly good business from us. As well as the included activities many people in our group (including us) decided to do some extra activities as the prices were reasonable and the guides were great. I think it helped support conservation as the local rivers, lakes and forests become valuable resources that are important to maintain.
4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
Really good. Would have liked a little more adrenaline on the rafting and kayaking, but that's very weather dependant and if the weather is warm and sunny the rivers are lower. So you can't have everything.
It all starts at home so we have first worked at reducing our carbon footprint in our UK offices. Through energy conservation measures and recycling policies in place, we are proud to be actively reducing the waste produced and our impact on the environment. We support various projects all over the world to try and give something back to the places we visit.
We operate small group tours that have a low impact on the communities we visit and we always ensure our operations do not disrupt or lead to the displacement of local people. This allows us to stay in unique and characterful accommodation that would not have benefitted from tourism due to their limited size.
We recognize that the cultures, environments and economies we visit are fragile requiring a sustained commitment from us to ensure that we have a lasting positive effect. Our tourism can be a real help to local communities providing income, positive cultural exchanges and the financial incentive to protect the natural environment.
PeopleLeaders & local suppliers:
As a part of our continued commitment to responsible tourism, we work closely with our local operator to run this trip in a way that aims to reduce impacts and to give as much back as possible to the local communities.
We have had an excellent long-term relationship with the operator and this helps to stabilise their income generation and so helps to create a more sustainable future. We use local leaders who are committed to responsible tourism and helping to preserve the way of life in their area. The leaders will give a briefing on Responsible Tourism issues to help you understand how you can help reduce your impact and maximise the benefits to the local community from your visit.
Slovenia is not top of your average traveller's list of places to visitÖ precisely why it gets our vote. By offering trips in countries that are overlooked by less adventurous travellers, we can give local economies a much needed boost. With small groups participating in low impact activities like kayaking and outsider canoeing, this can be achieved without compromising the environment.
