Canyoning is a very unique sport. It involves sliding, jumping, scrambling, swimming and abseiling down wild gorges and canyons, usually in remote, unspoilt places.
Fortunately, there are plenty of these secret gems for canyoning in Slovenia. Carved into bedrock by Alpine rivers and streams, these spectacles of nature include sharp edges, smooth boulders, narrow ledges, numerous drops, stunning waterfalls, deep and shallow crystal-clear pools, mysterious rocky passages and slippery waterslides. And you encounter all of these as you descend down into the valley below. So how does it work?
There are numerous canyoning locations scattered around Slovenia’s wild outdoors. Some are suitable for beginners, others are a bit more challenging and don’t allow for vertigo. When venturing to these hidden locations, you have to allow for an approx. 30-minute hike to reach the top of the gorge.
Safety is paramount, so professional guides will accompany you every step of the way. They will inform you on everything you need to know and equip you with the proper gear. The actual descent usually lasts around 2-3 hours, depending on the size of the gorge as well as the difficulty and number of obstacles you have to overcome. Whichever adventure of canyoning in Slovenia you choose, a fantastic time is guaranteed. In fact, falling through the cracks has never been more fun!
