Many active tourists travel to Slovenia specifically to try canyoning and there is a reason why. It is magical and thrilling. However, people often do not realise that every canyon in the world is different and offer their own challenges and characteristics. When travelling with us we will always discuss your requirements, capabilities and experience first before recommending a specific canyon.
Some canyons we operate with such as Jerecica are suitable for active family holidays in Slovenia. Whereas others such as Mostnica and Grmecica are better for adult adventure travellers. We like to work the most natural and responsibly protected canyons; unlike canyons like Bovec which is like Disney world with queues of companies waiting to go down one after another; with no respect for their natural foot print.
Canyoning is also very physical. It’s our most challenging activity so anyone interested must have a good level of fitness. It’s not for the feint hearted. Once you enter a canyon its always difficult to get back out; so we do say to anyone interested “if in doubt; leave it out”.

Canyoning for families
Come join the fun!
We will pick you up from the listed hotels at the listed times and take you to the relevant canyon start point. The canyons we operate in include Sušec, Fratarca and Mlinarica near the Soča Valley and Mostnica, Grmečica and Jerečica near Lake Bohinj. Each canyon has its own characteristics, rules and challenges. We will always discuss the most suitable for you based on fitness, experience, age and requirements.
We cater for active families in Slovenia, individuals and small groups. Team building exercises can be incorporated on request basis. We will provide all necessary equipment and clothing and your qualified local expert guides will take good care of you. These tours are instructed in Slovenian and English language.
Insurance is not included and therefore it’s a mandatory requirement you have insurance in place before taking part. For adventurous family holidays in Slovenia this is certainly worth considering but please bear in mind the minimum age to participate is 10 years; however we believe this activity is better suited for older teens.
I remember the great feeling of accomplishment at the end of our canyoning tour. That is something I’ll never forget and nor will my three teenagers. As a single mum, I book activity holidays for my kids, so they don’t get bored after one day on a holiday with their mum. They persuaded me to do this activity, and it was the best decision I made! There is so much going on during this day; you swim, you jump, you walk, you go throughout the tunnel, you climb! So at the end, guides who are very supportive along the way, they applaud to everyone and this is a moment when I saw my kids look at me with pride, and these are the things you cherish for the rest of your life.

It was fantastic. For families on active holidays in Slovenia we would recommend to try canyoning. I was especially taken when I saw how your guides kept encouraging my teenagers to do all jumps along the way. Such a lovely guy!

Our family canyoning tour in Bohinj was absolutely fantastic! I would struggle to choose the best part; guides, scenery, drivers were all perfect! Well done team.

We went on the 4hr canyoning trip with your guides Bostjan & Vidha. From start to finish, this is a recommend trip.
The booking process was simple through your website, your office was easy to reach and accommodating to our needs. Pickups were on time. Canyoning was great fun and we moved at a very easy pace for the while family. It’s for the brave and adventurous families though. Highly recommended day tour to book from Ljbljana & thanks to the team who arranged it.

Its quite intense. Not sure it’s right for all types of families. It was hard work in places and some very big drops. You have to have a head for heights.
Patricia Smith, Reading
It was our first ever canyoning experience and it left us wanting more and more. The day tour starting from our hotel in Ljubljana, was well organised, informative and super active. A great way to see Slovenia’s countryside from a different viewpoint and the view points were breath taking. Great value tour, we thoroughly recommend it
