“Don’t buy stuff.” A friend once said to me. “Buy experiences.” It’s good advice.
Bled was the winner of the best sport tourist destination in the world the London Travel Market in 2016. It is an amazing place to get new experiences. Among the many ways you can have outdoor adventures in Bled is with one of the sports tourism agencies.
Altitude is a professional adventure tourism and sports activities agency providing services to the more adventurous traveller. “We are constantly looking for new challenges.” Jerry and Matt from Altitude told me. Their enthusiastic team of young dedicated sportsmen, professional and experienced mountain, climbing and canyoning guides is focused on adventure offers.
Values and adventurous approach
“We appreciate satisfied travellers who know how to experience the benefit of Slovenia outdoor activities to the fullest.” They said. “This is what sets us apart from other travel companies: as well as experience, we have a true passion for bringing our values to the next level.”
Altitude Activities is about a different style of outdoor activities experience for those who want to get off the beaten path and connect with a certain destination.
Active travel, the pair tell me, is one of the best ways of supporting responsible and green tourism. “In fact, we believe in and understand it so strongly that we have made it our entire business!” And green and sustainable tourism is at the core of Slovenia’s tourism philosophy. Everyone who came to visit us in Slovenia said (usually within minutes of arriving) “This country is so clean!”
