More about the park
The zipline track is designed over a valley and the stretched steel wires are placed on both sides of the gorge. The length between the wires varies, with the shortest being 550 meters and the longest being 700 meters. The averaging depth is 200 meters above the ground.
During ziplining, you will slip from one side to the other. On the same side, you will need to walk between two ropes. So, wear comfortable sports shoes, and no flip-flops.
The park can only be used with a local, qualified guide, who will securely fasten the pulley using a seat belt.
At least two tour guides will always be with you during the program. One of them goes forward and helps you arrive safely, while the other stays behind and helps you get started.
Is zip-lining safe?
Yes, zipline tracks are designed to be as safe as possible. Of course, as everywhere, there are some regulations.
He who is afraid that the rope will break, we must reassure him that this has never happened before since these are steel wires. Regardless, the track is regularly maintained.
What's the right pose?
On the zipline track, you need to be more careful not to stop and thus get stuck in the middle of the track.
The problem with getting stuck is that you will need to pull yourself on your own - instead of slipping. Getting through on your own can be difficult for those who are not in a good shape.
In the first 20 minutes of the tour, there is a short section, where you’ll be able to learn the right pose.
