Adventure Boogie

Bovec, Slovenia

The previous edition of Adventure Boogie took place from 4 to 11 September 2021. The next edition will last for two weeks and the dates are published here as soon as they are confirmed.

Imagine spending a week in magical mountains, where each morning you can choose to spend your day skydiving, or try out one of many other exciting mountain sports under professional guidance…

This is an event where you can do exactly that. You get to enjoy the spectacular Slovenian landscape from the sky and from the water, from mountain tops, caves and canyons. You can challenge yourself physically and mentally in many different ways. Or you can just come play with our top skydive coaches. Your choice. And the best thing: you’ll have a magical week in any type of weather.

Registrations are  limited and based on first-come-first-serve. Sign up for our mailinglist if you want to get notified.

Can I join?
Anyone is welcome, whether you’re a freeflyer, mountain biker, kayaker, canyoneer, speleologist, paraglider, speedflyer, wingsuiter, canopy pilot or just a nature lover. If you have any doubts if this event is for you, you can always send us a message to find out. The answer is probably yes.
For most of these sports, no minimum level is required. For mountain swooping you need at least 500 skydives.

How does it work?
The idea of this event is that you come to practice your own sport or passion, with the opportunity to try out or learn others. Whether you’re skydiver that wants to try canyoning, or a kayaker that wants to learn paragliding, this is your event.
When you sign up, you pay a basic registration fee which includes some Adventure Tickets. These tickets function as event currency and can be used to take part in activities, workshops and courses. For most one day activities you can sign up on site. For longer trips and multi-day courses you need to reserve beforehand.

Registration & cost
You sign up with the registration form which you’ll find here a few months before the event starts.

After you submit the form, you receive a confirmation email with a request to pay your registration fee. Once we receive that payment, your slot is secured. You will have 10 days for payment. Any remaining amount can be paid before or at arrival in Bovec. Extra Adventure Tickets can be bought on site. We accept bank transfer, cryptocurrency, cash and card payments (2% card fee).

The location
Slovenia is a spectacular country, in some ways comparable to the landscape of Norway, Switzerland or New Zealand. The Soca valley is one of the most beautiful areas in the country with the charming mountain village of Bovec sitting right on the border of the Triglav National Park. It’s surrounded by mountain peaks and right through the middle of it all runs the clear turquoise colored Soca river, famed for its world class kayaking. The village is a lively outdoor sports town with plenty of little restaurants, where a meal and a drink are still affordable.

Accommodation
Info for 2022 coming soon.

Getting there
You can drive there or take a train to Most na Soci and a bus to Bovec from there or ask someone to pick you up. A bit closer to the event we will launch a carpool page and you can find information on bus schedules here. You can also fly into Ljubljana (1h45 from Bovec) or Venice (2h30 from Bovec) and rent a car.

To reserve your slot you need to pay a non refundable registration fee and agree to our GENERAL BOOKING CONDITIONS which you can find here.

Wine & Cuisine in Slovenian Wine Region
Goriška Brda is Slovenias Tuscany. In this circular mountainbike tour, over rolling hills and between grape vines and fruit trees, we enjoy a wine tasting, olive oil tasting and lunch at the area’s best seafood restaurant overlooking the vineyards. Saturday 4 Sept. Price: 5 Adventure tickets (150€).

Tour de Soča Valley
Hike up to a mountain hut and spend the night there. The following day you walk down to the valley where mountain bikes wait for you to tour them back to Bovec – passing beautiful Slovenian nature and genuine architecture, cuisine and culture.

When?
Monday 6 Sept. We leave at 12:00 from the DZ and come back Tuesday 15-16.00. If you have a mini skills camp booked starting on Sunday, you can request to move that to Wednesday in stead.

How?
Day 1: Put on your hiking shoes and enjoy a beautiful path in the Triglav National Park for about 1100 vertical metres (about 3 hours) to a picturesque mountain hut. We enjoy a traditional Slovenian meal together, watch the sunset and then spend the night in the mountain hut.

Day 2: Wake up at sunrise, have breakfast and walk down to the valley floor where mountain bikes are waiting. The bike ride back to Bovec is 28 km but almost all of it downhill (we’ll take 3-4 hours for this). The first part of the trail is on the paved road, then continues on smaller forest roads next to the river. It’s a very beautiful trail, passing by the source of the Soča river and many culturally interesting points. Halfway we stop for lunch with grilled trout from the Soča River and apple strudel. 

Price
5 Adventure tickets (150€) including transportation, bike rental, dinner/breakfast/lunch, accommodation and guiding. Not including drinks.

Other details
It will be a physically demanding trip. It’s weather dependent, although you should be prepared to walk in some rain.
