• Spelunking in Slovakia is an excellent option for intrepid travelers

    2010-04-30

    While most people see a vacation as a chance to relax and forget the hardships of everyday life in a fun and relaxing environment, some people use the time away from work as an opportunity to try a new and exciting activity. Those travelers who are not afraid to get their hands dirty in pursuit of adventure may want to book a trip to the country of Slovakia and sign up for a harrowing trip spelunking in Harmanecka Jaskyna.

    For the uninitiated, spelunking - or caving, as it is also known - is a recreational sport which sees participants exploring the mysteries of wild underground caves. Spelunkers are often outfitted in waterproof overalls and helmet-mounted lights, and take pickaxes and ropes to stay safe while they explore the often winding paths of these mysterious locations.

    Slovakia offers up a wealth of beautiful and untouched caving options thanks to a network of more than 3,800 caves and crevices that snake under the Slovakian countryside.

    Of these caves, Harmanecka Jaskyna is one of the best, located deep in the remote valley between the Velka Fatra mountains just north of Banska Bystrica. This often narrow and winding series of tunnels often opens up to wide expanses that provide epic photo opportunities.
