Green Slovenia

Slovenia lies at the heart of Europe, where the Alps and the Adriatic Sea meet the Karst and the Pannonian Plain. It borders Austria to the north, Italy to the west, Croatia to the south and Hungary to the east.

Slovenia is a highly dynamic country, ideal for sports and recreation. Adrenaline-filled experiences in nature are available in each and every spot of the country and during every season of the year. In summer, the water and the sky beckon, while in spring and autumn, it’s the many bike and hiking trails. In the winter, it’s the plentiful ski slopes.

On the Slovenian coast of the Adriatic Sea, experienced sailors, divers and surfers meet. Clean rivers and lakes attract fishermen, enthusiastic rafters and those who enjoy adrenalin canyoning, kayaking and other water sports. Among the pearls of such offers are the Soča River with its wild inflows or Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj. Due to its natural position and varied terrain, Slovenia is one of the most attractive countries to fly over with hot-air balloons and also for paragliding. In winter, however, Slovenia is a paradise for alpine and hobby skiers.

With its natural beauty and many attractions, Slovenia repeatedly surprises its visitors, enchanting them with its charms and always beckoning them to return and discover new and fascinating spots. In light of such diversity, it can sometimes be hard to decide what places to visit and what activities to choose. With the help of our advice you will be better prepared to choose a destination and find those programs that will stay in your imagination long after your visit to Slovenia is over.
