Activities during Adventure Boogie

Adventure Sports Festival
June 4-18 2022
Bovec, Slovenia

The program is always subject to change depending on the weather. We will be adding more activities and details over the coming weeks.

Canyoning

Follow a river down its gorge, walking, sliding, swimming and rappelling down waterfalls and natural chutes, while captured between large rock faces on each side of the canyon. A must try at Adventure Boogie!

Canyoning is a half day activity for which you can sign up during the event. The price is 2,5 Adventure Tickets.

Canyon Kozjak
The darkest canyon in the region with lots of slides and high jumps. There are sections where this canyon almost feels like a cave. Walk up 30 to 45 minutes. Streamtime 2 to 4 hours.

Canyon Fratarica
A more open canyon with stunning views and a free hanging vertical rope decent through the Parabola waterfall. Walk up 25 to 40 minutes. Streamtime 2 to 4 hours.

Canyon Predelica
This canyon in the Triglav National Park offers a mix of jumps and rope techniques with views over the mighty walls of Log Pod Mangartom. Walk in 30 minutes, walk out 30 minutes. Streamtime 2 to 3 hours.

Canyon Goloboski Potok
Have you fallen in love with the feeling of descending through canyons while surrounded by the sound of crystal clear frothing waterfalls? In that case, the Goloboski Potok will be a real treat for you. A true canyon on the southern side of the Kanin mountain, which presents quite a challenge with its steepness and access. It’s one of the highlights of canyoning in the Soca valley. Walk up one hour, walk out 30 minutes. Streamtime 3 to 4 hours.

Caving

Venturing down into a pitch dark cave. Some find it scary and you will get dirty. It’s an experience you will remember and the world feels a little different when you come back into daylight.

Caving (or speleology) is a half day activity for which you can sign up during the event. The price is 2 Adventure Tickets.

Mala Boka cave
A mysterious trip near the gigantic waterfall Boka. Hidden from sight, the entrance to the cave is known only to the people familiar with the surroundings and it hides a real underground gem. After entering, a vast rocky chamber opens before us, which leads to numerous stalagmites and stalactites. The rocky halls are encased with hundreds of windows, which are pierced with sunlight and have lovely acoustics. Duration 3-4 hours.

Srnica cave
The most popular underground exploration in the Bovec region. Pure and raw caving, not suitable for those with claustrophobia. The entrance is hidden in the wall by the Gljun creek. We crouch and walk through an intricate labyrinth of tunnels and halls, which can be stifling at times and then suddenly douse us with cool yet pleasant air of the underground corridors. In some parts we rely on ropes, which enable us easier navigation without getting lost. Duration 3-4 hours.

Cold Water / Breathwork

New in 2022!
Combine breathwork exercises inspired by the Wim Hof method with exposure to the cold water of the Soča river. There is no better way to energise yourself for the rest of the day (or even week).

We offer one or two early morning sessions per week, not far from Bovec. Sign up during the event. You can join for free and you are welcome to buy your instructor a beer later.

Downhill Longboarding

New in 2022!

The Dutch Downhill Division longboard team is coming to Bovec to give 1-day introduction courses for beginners in downhill longboarding.

Hydrospeed is a half day activity for which you can sign up during the event. The price is 1,5 adventure tickets.

Innhopps

The famous Even Rokne organises magical “innhopps” around Bovec. An innhopp is a jump into an unknown landing area. These are jumps you won’t easily forget. During Adventure Boogie we organise two Adventure Nights per week, where you can jump into (or take the bus). These evenings include a meal, a film presentation, a party and a bus back to Bovec. You only pay for your jump ticket if you decide to jump in. The rest is included in the event.

Besides these, Even organises several specialty innhopps for smaller groups during the week. You can sign up for them during the event. Prices vary.

The green-blue Soča river is famous for it’s kayaking. We paddle on three different river sections:

Meeting Mountains

Johannes Bergfors lives in Bovec and runs a tourist agency called Meeting Mountains, which helps visitors experience more in the Soča Valley. You might know Johannes as a coach and videographer from previous Adventure Boogies or our other events. For Adventure Boogie, Meeting Mountains organises special tours and expeditions in the area.

For example, during each week (Wednesday-Thursday) he organises: Beautiful sunset and sunrise at a mountain hut

A two day hiking-socialising-eating-sleeping tour with a night in a mountain hut in the Slovenian Alps. Join a small group on this unforgettable adventure that could end up being the highlight of your trip. Read more here or contact johannes@meetingmountains.com to enquire or book a spot.

Cost: Just your own costs (food, sharing a ride and maybe a little accommodation cost)

Effort: Should be able to hike for 3-4 hours without complaining, two days in a row.

Description: This is a hiking adventure spanning 1,5 days, which we guarantee to be very rewarding. It’s suitable for people who are not afraid to walk and want to witness a beautiful sunset and sunrise from a mountain. It will be a tight knit group who’ll spend quality time together, share meals and strong experiences. On day 2 it’s maybe possible to fly down if you’re an experienced paraglider. Tandem is not impossible either.

For this overnight trip you can reserve through the reservation form which will be emailed to participants. For most other Meeting Mountain activities you can sign up on site.

Rockclimbing is a half day activity for which you can sign up during the event. The price is 2 adventure tickets.

We can also help you to find locations if you want to go climb by yourself.

Skydiving

Anyone can come skydive during Adventure Boogie. If you are a licensed skydiver and just want to jump for yourself or with friends, a basic event registration is all you need. For other options, see below.

A slot in the plane costs 1 adventure ticket.

If you are a student or just come out of your AFF, get in touch so we can discuss options for extra guidance and gear rental.

We have chosen to keep last year’s format , which means that we don’t offer general load organising but provide high quality group jumps and coaching for those who think that’s worth paying for. More information below.

Skydiving | AFF course

If you have never skydived before, you can do an AFF course during the event and learn how to skydive yourself, under instruction and guidance by our very own ToraTora instructors Martijn & Willem.

It’s difficult to overstate what a unique opportunity this is for someone interested to learn skydiving. You will probably not find a more impressive location to follow an AFF course, or an equally overwhelming event to do it at. You will most likely be spoiled forever.

The course starts with one day of theory on Sunday, followed by 7 jumps during the week (or more if you need to repeat a level). If the weather cooperates, you will be done with level 7 and able to skydive by yourself from Wednesday. You will also have time to join other activities during the week or you can use that time to do more jumps and start working towards your skydiving A-license.

The price is 1495€ including 7 jumps, gear rental, and full Adventure Boogie participation (or 1000€ if you already signed up as a non skydiver). Sign up through the reservation form or contact us for more info. Max 3 students per week.

Skydiving | Coaching

We have several coaches on site for 1-on-1 and 2-on-1 coaching at any level and any discipline. You will need to reserve coaching on forehand. The best way to do this is through the registration form. You can also apply for coaching later via email, but that will depend on availability of our coaches.

The price is 1,5 Adventure Ticket per jump, plus all participant and coach slots. We’ll aim for minimum 5 jumps in one day. Depending on availability you can request a specific coach. These are the coaches so far:

Alethia Austin
Elias Nummela
Floris Drevel
Hannah Parker
Matt Leonard
Martijn van Dam
Petter Stensvold
Silvia Lacna
Vincent Cotte
Will Penny

Skydiving | Mountain Swooping

Everyone with 500+ jumps can join mountain swooping. It’s mandatory to attend one of the mountain swoop safety briefings during the event. We always fly in small groups with a guide.

Most mountain swooping loads are in the morning due to their weather sensitivity.

The price for mountain swooping is 2 adventure tickets per jump (includes guide, ground crew and return transport). You can sign up during the event.

Skydiving | Skills Camp

For experienced skydivers we offer a mini skills camp. You sign up for 12 jumps over 2 or 3 days in a very small group of 3 or 4 participants plus a coach. We will try to find the perfect group for you, and if you come with 4 friends you may request your own coach.

The Mini Skills Camp starts on Sundays and Wednesdays and is suitable for intermediate freeflyers and absolute ninja’s. Minimum requirement: being able to safely join a 4-way head up jump or being able to safely join a 4-way track or angle jump. That means you need to be able hold your position for a full jump, adjust your speed and stay in your quadrant. If you are unsure if you have the right level, just ask us.

The price is 670€ and comes on top of your basic registration fee. This includes 12 jumptickets. You can sign up through the registration form and we’ll ask you for a 300€ non refundable deposit for the coaching. If we can’t finish all jumps in the camp, the jumptickets are refundable.

These are the coaches so far:

Alethia Austin
