Vancouver, B.C. – Outside Magazine has recognized BikeHike Adventures in the Best New Frontier category of the 2012 Travel Awards. Slovenia has been selected as the runner-up to Myanmar as the world’s best new frontier. Outside recommends BikeHike’s Slovenia – Sports Extravaganza for active travellers visiting Slovenia.
The announcement was made on March 13th 2012 in Outside’s annual travel awards issue. The eight-day trip is a multi-sport adventure, enabling travellers to see Slovenia from a variety of angles and perspectives.
The trip includes trekking in the Julian Alps, kayaking down the Krka River with a Slovenian Olympic Medalist, and biking through quaint villages right into Italy. Returning to Slovenia, travellers whitewater raft down the turquoise waters of the Soča River.
The itinerary places a strong emphasis on authentic local culture and takes place in a gorgeous natural setting. BikeHike Adventures director Trish Sare states, “BikeHike Adventures is thrilled to be included in Outside’s Award for Best New Frontier. I hope this results in more travellers discovering the beauty of Slovenia, one of Europe’s emerging adventure meccas full of hidden surprises.”
