WHAT IS ZIP LINING?
Zip-lining is an adrenaline-soaked descent on a steel rope between two points, which are quite distant. The guide attaches you with a safety belt to the pulley and you are already flying like a bird to a remote post.
Steel ropes have a long tradition in the Soča valley. In the middle of the last century the locals installed steel ropes in the area of Učja. They were used by local farmers for the harvesting of wood and hay and by hunters to carry equipment. Some are still in use today.
Zipline is an invention of biologists who decided 30 years ago to explore the ecosystem of the tropical rainforest, to observe and catalogue the animals and plants that prevail there. They sought different approaches to access deeper parts of the forest and ways to reduce the impact on the ecosystem. Zip lining has emerged and today presents one of the most popular ways of entertainment around the world.
Zip line – Učja
Bovec zipline Učja Eco Adventures
Between the slopes of Kanin and Stol there is an inaccessible valley of Učja. Through the valley flows the river Učja, which originates on the saddle Carnizza in Italy and flows along the picturesque valley to the east of Slovenia to the village Žaga, where it flows into the Soča River. In Slovenia Učja cut a narrow and difficult access to the riverbed and laid out many inaccessible pools. Steel cables of different lengths that are tensed across the Učja canyon, will open the view of this untouched nature and its surroundings through the bird’s eye view. And not just that. There are more than two hours of fun for all generations.
ZIP LINE ADVENTURE:
You drive to the starting point, which is 9 km from Bovec. When you arrive at the starting point, the guides will explain the basics, then you will be tested in a test run in our training polygon on a 20 m long cylinder.
