Top 5 activities to do in Banja Luka this autumn
When someone mentions rafting in autumn you probably think how cold it would be and that it’s impossible to on a trip down the river. Well the rafting is the most popular during the summer. We have all those hot and sunny days, but rafting in the autumn has its beauty. Like we said in the beginning, October tends to be a very warm and that period is called miholjsko ljeto (Indian summer). The autumn colors and warm days give extra beauty to the rafting trip and that’s why we put it on the first place of our Top 5 activities to do in Banja Luka this autumn list.
It’s important that there is no rain on the day you decide to go rafting on the Vrbas river with your friends. If it gets to be one of the colder days there are wet suits which will keep you warm and comfortable during the trip so you don’t have to worry about anything.
If you’re not in the mood for water activities and getting wet in autumn, then we recommend you try the quad off-road adventure. This adventure lasts around two hours, and you ride the popular quad all terrain vehicles. The route goes over asphalt and gravel roads, downhill, uphill, through the woods and over meadows. These little four wheelers are specially made for this kind of terrain and they will conquer all obstacles with no trouble. Don’t let little bit of rain and mud discourage you of going on this ride. It only makes the adventure more fun and you can use the protective suits to keep you from getting dirty.
We believe you have tried the paintball so far but if you haven’t we are reminding you that this would be the perfect time to do it. Paintball is a fun recreational team sport which is usually played on the outdoor fields. There are a couple of different paintball games like capturing the flag, elimination, freeing the hostage and similar. It is up to you and your team to come up with a strategy and plan of attack which will bring you victory over the rival team. Paintball can be played on sunny and rainy day, when it’s muddy…there are no limitations. It’s only important to have a great time.
