You will be experiencing the fantastic thrills and spills of white water rafting! Surrounded by green forests and striking gorge landscapes, you will experience the exhilaration of paddling against powerful water currents and rocky rapids. The beautiful emerald coloured Soca river is a spectacular sight, and to hurtle down the gushing waters will have you screaming with joy! Of course you are always under the watchful eye of our experienced guides.

Day 3 - Cycling discovery

Today, we venture through Slovenia’s eye-catching countryside. We start our journey off towards the valley of Idrijca, riding alongside the river and amongst beautiful lush meadows and pastures. We’re heading towards a cluster of picturesque villages and along the way, we’ll rest and enjoy a swim. For guests that are not regular cyclists, don’t worry! Our routes have been cleverly designed to satisfy different ages and biking experience. Our focus is of course teenage activity holidays abroad, keep restless teens entertained, but we aim to keep mum and dad happy too.

Day 4 - Free Day

Today is your free day, and what you get up to is completely your choice! You can simply relax at the hotel, enjoy exploring the near by countryside or if you feel like a day tour we can arrange a trip to the beautiful Lake Bled.

Day 5 – Gorge walk

Today, we’ll make a short drive into the Polog Valley, where you will have the opportunity to explore some World War 1 bunkers before we set off on the Devil’s gorge hike! The walking is set at a nice calm pace, designed to showcase Slovenia’s stunning natural beauty. You will make your way through pristine forests, over beautiful springs of the Tolminka River as well as a nice break on a high alp meadow! Definitely a perfect family photo opportunity.

Day 6 – Mini rafting

Are you ready again, to take on the white foaming rapids of the Soca River? This time, you’ll be negotiating the Soca without a professional captain steering you through the rocks and waterfalls. You will have complete control of the steering and paddling; which makes it a lot of fun and much more challenging. We want our family multi sport week in Slovenia to be like nothing else you’ve experienced before, and we promise that mini rafting the Soca will deliver the ultimate highs! At the end of our journey, we’ll be organizing a wonderful BBQ lunch.

Day 7 - Canyoning

From previous client testimonials, we know that canyoning is one of our most highly rated activities during the 2 week adventure holiday. This water world is simply like nothing you’ve experienced before, from mini waterfalls you can jump into, through too huge 27 metre falls descended by ropes. You will jump, slip, slide and climb your way downstream coming face to face with surprising twists and turns around every turn! Canyoning is an extraordinary activity, heightened by Slovenia’s natural beauty and challenging mountainous landscapes! Don’t worry if you’re not too sure about jumping or heights, talk to one of our Green World Holidays travel experts to find out more!

Day 8 – Week 2: Bohinj

Firstly note, that week 1 can be booked separately (please contact our staff for a price). From Soca Valley, we transfer to Lake Bohinj and check into the ECO Park 5 star hotel. Did you know that Bohinj was voted into the World’s top 10 most beautiful lakes by Yahoo ! An area of outstanding beauty, with walking & biking trails surrounding the 4km lake. This evening our local rep, will welcome you to the area and present your rental mountain bikes for the weeks duration.

Day 9: Canoe & high ropes

Collect your Indian canoe rafts and take to the Bohinj waters. For family time, there’s nothing better than paddling together in one boat, exploring the gentle waters and jumping in for a swim. After some deserved rest and a spot of food, it’s time to put the harness and helmet on. Get ready for swing bridges, cargo nets and the giant sling shot. Our family activity holidays in Slovenia offer the entertainment for those restless teens, but also designed to inspire and to give you a huge sense of accomplishment. Our high ropes challenge is undoubtedly a great family activity.

Day 10: Free day

Today, we suggest you cycle and enjoy the many marked trails with your rented bikes. Wind your way along quiet paths, go off-the-beaten track and discovery your own patch of paradise. For keen walkers, there are many waterfall trails and there is also the Vogel cable cart lift. At the hotel, you have access to both indoor and outdoor pools, gym and spa. Adventure out, or simply relax in!

Day 11: Mini rafting

Our 14 night Slovenia combination holiday is a popular choice for families that like to be active and to develop their skill levels. Like your time on the Soca river, you’ll be riding a new set of rapids, splashing your way down pristine waters. Half way down, there is an opportunity to jump out of the mini rafts and to float in the river’s current. Each raft holds two or three people, so team work will be needed to successfully complete this grade 2/3 river section.

Day 12 - Free day

Lake Bohinj is a great place to chill out, but if your teenage kids want to do more – then look into our guided biking trips and climbing sessions. We also can arrange a day trip to Lake Bled, another iconic tourist destination.

Day 13: Free day

You have many options on hand if you don’t fancy a peaceful day around the hotel. Paraglide, trek the local gorges, swim in the lake, sunbathe, play volleyball, discover local cultural history & the mountain legends!  Open top kayaks can be rented for lake use or take your rented bikes out on the surrounding quiet roads.

Day 14: Canyoning time

Canyoning in Slovenia is without a doubt one of the most exciting adventure activities you can try. Offering thrills and spills; the canyons offer a natural playground to slide, jump and abseil. You will need to save your strength though, because there are plenty more natural obstacles awaiting you. This Bohinj canyon experience might just be the highlight to your teenager holiday in Slovenia.

Day 15: Departure day

Sadly, it’s time to say goodbye to Bohinj and head to Ljubljana airport. If you have time, we can certainly drop you off in the capital’s centre, so you can explore a stunning city. Safe journey home, and we hope to see your active family again.
