Feel the rush as you whizz through the jungle, forest or mountains
If the idea of whizzing through the air, the ground rushing by beneath you, gives you a buzz, then ziplining trips are for you. The length and height of zip lines varies across the world – some take you soaring over rocky landscapes with dramatic vistas, while others give you a high-velocity tour through incredible woodlands.
In Costa Rica, ziplining tours are the best adrenaline-fuelled introduction to the lush jungle canopies. Zip lines of varying lengths criss-cross their way through the jungle, past dense vegetation and beautiful flowers. You’ll make your way through this incredible ecosystem, spotting fluttering butterflies, colourful birds and chattering monkeys at their level. In Slovenia, ziplining trips will see you soar high above the treetops, crossing a lush, green valley between two mountains in the Slovenian Alps. The zip lines are up to 700m in length and you can reach speeds of 60kph as you race down them – a sensation few are ever likely to forget.

Expert insight: Ziplining in Costa Rica
“Everywhere you go in the world they say it’s the best, but in Costa Rica it really is. Flying high over the jungle canopy is spectacular. There are lakes and volcanoes to each side and you pass through cloud as you go. The zip lines are up to a mile long, but it’s not the distance and height that makes the experience so special, but the destination itself. Everywhere you go there’s lots of wildlife, from iguanas to monkeys and colourful birds and butterflies. Costa Rica is known for being eco-friendly, and we stayed in a variety of small, family-run and locally staffed hotels, from a rustic wooden lodge set in tropical gardens to a hotel overlooking the ocean.”
