Except for tourist and bicycle trails it has a lot of beauty left in the underground. There are also thermal springs or you can learn a lot of about history there.

And also year-round those who prefer to relax by water. There are several alternatives is to swimming and practicing water sports.

Children, as well as my first birth, we can fill of fun on the water slides at the water park, well, if that was not enough, you can experiment with many a pastime adrenaline.
Adrenalin in Liptov
Liptov has many adrenaline opportunities. It’s your choice. You can choose between water, air, underground, or rather relatively safe solid ground under your feet. Water lovers here can raise their adrenaline level by doing some rafting. For example, in the area of water rafting in whitewater slalom in the artificial canal in Liptovsky Mikulas. On "Liptovske Sea ", as locals call Liptovska Mara reservoir will be loved by fishermen and those who love adrenaline sports. Think, for example, of jet skiing or water skiing, or crazy pulling on inflatable entertainments for a speedboat.
Fun in the air
Would you like to get off the ground and at least for a while freely float in the air? Then I suggest you try a tandem paragliding flight. You will see that this experience you'll never forget. In Liptov you can try another diversion adrenaline, which anywhere else in the Slovakia is not to be found. It is just there, by the aqua park in Liptov. Are you attracted to jump out of a plane, but you have not found him brave enough? What a unique way to experience the feeling of free fall simulator safe at a reasonable level and constant supervision of an experienced instructor? Still, that does not even reach a level of adrenaline as when during classic jump , you will see that you will like it. Flying is safe and can handle it and your kids, just when they are older than 4 years.
Fast and furious
Do you love speed and the wind in your hair? Then you have to try to ride the bobsled track steepest in Slovakia, who is waiting for you in Pavcina Lehota in the mouth of Demanovska Valley. I must admit that elevation 120 meters on the track with a length of 1 kilometer is really really tiresome. At some corners and jumps, I even cried. But do not worry, the track is very safe rider for the duration of wearing a safety belt and the maximum speed that you can achieve is limited to 45 kilometers per hour. Even this entertainment is suitable for all ages. Children under 7 years old must ride in a bobsleigh only together with an adult. And if you still are not enough, you can move to Liptovsky Mikulas , where you can expect indoor karting track , which is the longest in the middle Slovak. Its biggest advantage is a track ready so that you will ride on flat surface, but it will even go uphill and then downhill.
Are you not lured by a prospect of adrenaline and you rather want to learn something about history? Even for you we have an interesting tip! We highly recommend a visit of the underground beneath the towers in Liptovsky Jan . What you can look forward to there we will reveal next week.
