OUR LOCATION

Slovenia is a small country in Central Europe, bordering Italy, Croatia, Austria and Hungary. Soča Valley is a small region in the Northwest corner of the country surrounded by the high peaks of the Julian Alps; it’s a paradise for all of you who want to slow down, decompress and ignite their soul. This region is sought out by many Europeans as a remote destination with extreme and rugged natural beauty.

Slovenia is unknown to many travelers and off the beaten path which makes it the perfect getaway, devoid of crowds and traditional touristic nightmares. It’s considered one the adrenaline capitals of Central Europe and contains unparalleled beauty and charming culture.

THE VILLAGE

The home base for our Soča Valley Adventures is a little town called Bovec (pronounced Bovits). It is nestled in the valley next to the pristine river, Soča (pronounced Socha) at the base of several stunning and majestic mountains. The town is full of charm and character with locals greeting you at every corner, local cuisine that will charm your taste buds, dazzling, unparalleled natural beauty, and adventure sports that will leave you feeling invigorated and empowered.

This cozy and quaint village is easy to call ‘home’ and impossible to leave. It has a way of penetrating your soul and you can’t help but leave a bit of your heart behind. But without a doubt, this magical place is truly a gateway to igniting your soul and you will NOT forget the memories you made, the relationships that were created and the way you felt during your visit.

THE CULTURE

Bovec is a village of activity and adventure. Whether you want to take a leisure hike along the infamous Soca River or repel down a 150 meter waterfall while canyoning or jump out of a plane, you can do that here in the Valley of Adrenalin. On our AdZENture we will have group activities that will get you active in nature and push your comfort levels to get your heart racing and your smile shining. We are guided by professionals who pride themselves on providing an unforgettable and safe experience for us all.

Not an adrenaline junkie? Not to worry, the valley is filled with plenty of outdoor excursions that do not involve heights, rapids and harnesses…you will not be short on amazing adventures in this valley.

Get outside and experience nature’s playground!

THE NATURE

This place is a dream brought to life, real-life Narnia, and among the most beautiful destinations in the world. The emerald river, the abundance of greens that fill the valley, and the majestic mountains that encompass this enchanted mountain village will leave you breathless.

The beauty of this place is truly amazing and Lonely Planet voted the Julian Alps one of the Top 10 destinations as well as the first GREEN destination due to its environmental sustainability efforts.

Enjoy the rugged, pristine and GREEN beauty of the Emerald Valley!

THE ADVENTURE

Welcome to the Valley of Adrenalin… prepare to step outside of your comfort zone and challenge yourself physically and mentally. Through these challenges and experiences, you feel truly alive and have a feeling of euphoria once you’ve done something for the first time. Be as extreme as you like, from skydiving to SUP-ing, there are many adventures to choose from. Or you can try them all.

Get your heart racing and join the fun!

THE CUISINE

Although it’s a small village, we dine and drink like royalty. Local restaurants provide a range of specialty dishes from traditional Bovec delicacies to Slovenian recipes passed down from generations to generation. The food is local, organic and fresh so we are able to feast on the highest quality cuisine. Enjoy pizzas and pastas influenced by the Italians, local trout masterfully prepared, savory Burek recipes brought from the Balkan, and many other traditional dishes of the region.

And why stop with delicious food when the wine and schnapps are such a big (and delicious) part of the culture. It’s tradition to have a glass of wine, or two, with a meal and raise a glass of local schnapps to toast, close a meal or fight away a cold.

Eat and drink like the locals do on our AdZENtures.

THE YOGA

The yoga community continues to grow in Bovec, in a place of action, adventure, and natural beauty yoga is the perfect compliment and this valley makes for the most perfect studio. We travel throughout the valley and take to our mats to experience the blissful peace of moving and breathing among some of the most beautiful terrain in the world.

Mountaintop yoga at sunset. Morning sun salutations next to the Emerald river. Acro workshops in sprawling fields of wildflowers. Evening meditation in the valley surrounded by majestic mountains. The list goes on and on – waterfalls, mountain lakes, hidden swimming holes, river canyons, dense forests – all of these settings provide a unique yoga studio that will make your practices here unforgettable.

Be present, breathe and flow in paradise.

THE COMMUNITY

Our groups are kept small and intimate for a purpose. We rarely have more than 8 guests on an AdZENture and because of that, our experiences create an amazing atmosphere for making new friends who feel like family. Come on your own, with a friend or a few friends…either way, you’ll leave with a very special bond with fabulous people.

Good friends and great adventures await!

About Experience Provider

Lindsey Conroy

Meet Lindsey Conroy, founder of AdZENtures. This is how she came to design and provide one-of-a-kind yoga-culture-adventure retreats fit for everyone. Lindsey is an innovator and provider of next-level, not-another-yoga Retreats. Read her story:

AdZENtures was conceived on a 1-year journey around the world. One that started with the intention to study and teach yoga in order to construct the vision for a brick and mortar studio.
.
I set out to explore the world and learn about the world of yoga (which I did) but there was so much more. .
I taught yoga. I ate EVERYTHING. I learned how to build a house out of bamboo. I WOOFed on a farm where nobody spoke English. I drank rice wine served from a gasoline jug. I learned how to drive a manual car on the left side of the road. I learned how to salsa. I made friends who are still family. I learned how to properly eat with my hands. I learned about local secrets that were the highlights of my year. I experienced unique cultures firsthand. I adventured through 18 countries. I gawked over the most beautiful nature I’d ever seen (over and over again).
.
And it was over the course of 12 months, that my initial focus or idea started to shift. I wanted other people to experience what I had. I wanted to share every aspect of that year with people, because it was all so wonderful and I felt so wonderful because of it.
.
So the seed was planted and wheels started to turn. Slowly the wireframe for this Experience Company started to take shape.
.
The first location I wanted to share with people was my favorite one, Slovenia. I started planning the perfect experience that highlighted all the things that make a place special. The adventure sports, the beautiful nature and the unique and rich culture. And as a way to encourage presence and able, healthy bodies for the week, we’d incorporate yoga, but through intentional excursions throughout the region.
.
The plan was set, so now we had to spread the word. This is how the idea for our ‘Yoga &...’ experiences came about. If people come to these smaller events, it means they’re interested in this type of thing. That’s our target market! So we started talking. A few people listened and in 2017, we hosted our first Experiential Travel Retreat and started Yoga &...
.
There is still so much to come and we are still growing into our full potential! But this is how we started and how we got to where we are!
