What will be new in season 2013?

By the opinion of German ADAC inspectors, Slovenian camps should additionally invest in modernization of sanitary facilities, tidiness of camping pitches and their equipment with water and electricity connection. From camping Terme Catez we have been notified that they have arranged some new pitches and that some new mobile homes will be available for rent – this will be first mobile homes from agency Gebetsroither that is offering camping facilities across Europe.

In Camp Adria in Ankaran visitors will have opportunity to rent one of new caravans set on beautiful pitches.

Camp Natura is located withing Terme Olimia that will this season be richer for 15m high toboggan in the shape of snake cobra. This will be toboggan with two tubes and will bring lots of entertainment to families that will enjoy the 180m long slide.

Camp Menina has been largely renovated after autumn’s floods and pitches arranged. Additionally, new wooden sauna will be added which will enrich their services.
