Bovec, Slovenia, April 22, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The Travel Puzzle announced the plans of a new giant Zip-Line Park in Slovenia to be opened in June 2012. When completed, it will be one of Europe’s largest zip-lines but it will also compete for the most scenic zip-lining adventure. The panoramic views of the Soča Valley, Soča river and the picturesque village Bovec is guaranteed to take your breath away. However, the adrenaline kicks from travelling at 40 kilometres per hour, 130 metres above ground should make the trip memorable in itself.
The Zip-line park is located in the Alpine valley of Krnica on the edge of mountain Kanin, mostly known for Slovenia’s highest ski resort with the same name.
Zip-lining is similar to a theme park ride and consists of a pulley suspended under a cable spanning between two high points. There is no engine and gravity alone will pull you along from one side to the other.
The Slovenian zip-line adventure starts with a drive up the mountainside in the instructors 4x4 vehicle and the journey itself is a scenic 10km drive up the mountain trails. Once the starting point of the zip-line is reached, you will be harnessed onto the zip-line and prepared for your flight.
Suspended above the trees you will whiz down the line to the base of the mountain. The zip-lines are in total 2.5 kilometres long, comprising of 5 lines approximately 500 metres each. The estimated top speed is 40 km/h and you will be flying 130 metres above the ground.
No special talents or sporting abilities are necessary, just a strong heart, a sense of adventure and a willingness to have a go. The age limit is 12 years and the dress code is strictly ‘comfortable clothes’.
The trip is expected to cost between £40 and £45 per person an only pre-booked trips will be accepted. Single trips can be booked from The Travel Puzzle's website.
Zip-line trips will also be included in The Travel Puzzle’s popular adventure holidays to Slovenia.
