The water slalom resort in Liptovský Mikuláš with four slalom tracks is located on the southern edge of the town next to the Váh river. It is the venue of several important national, international and world competitions in the water slalom.
Its starting point is the feeding canal ending in the start pool with the length of 680 m. Two separate tracks are conducted from this canal. They meet approximately in the middle and continue together back to the Váh river.
The left track, the easier one, is called “Váh” and the right track which is shorter but more demanding is called “Orava”. Although the canal is artificial, its shores covered by stones mildly descent to the riverbed and form the natural setting of the canal.
The area around the canal, covered by grass, with terrace-like platforms, and many little bridges, footpaths and benches offer multiple options of relaxation.
The resort offers you the possibility to rent the water area, and try adrenaline activities, such as rafting, kayaking, hydrospeed, four-wheeler rides, archery, paintball. Furthermore, there is a hire service for water sports equipment and bikes and you can have a snack in a café with a covered terrace. People who wish to try also other activities available in Liptov and its surroundings, such as climbing, paragliding, horse-riding or zorbing, can arrange them in the resort too. Amateurs can also have a go at all these activities, with the assistance of experienced instructors.
The resort is open from April to the end of October. In July and August it is open daily, from 10.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m., in other months advanced booking is needed.
