SlackLife Fest 2022: Feeling the Adrenaline Rush in Hell Canyon

Armenia is known for its spring/summer festivals and there are plenty more to come. From food related events to cultural celebrations, there’s definitely something for everyone.

Among the first festivals to launch this season is the 5th edition of the much-awaited SlackLife Fest, which will take place in Hell Canyon, in the Ararat Province of Armenia during the 21st and 22nd of May, 2022.

The 2-day event held annually in a picturesque setting, is the place-to-be for thrill seekers, adventure sport aficionados, or just simply anyone who enjoys being in Nature in an energetic atmosphere driven by fun, excitement and endless adrenaline rush inducing moments.

These 2 days will be filled with adrenaline inducing moments such as rope jumping from the peak of the rocks, or climbing these
rocks. Another interesting experience is getting on the space net, which pretty much is what its name tells: a net suspended in the sky, between 2 rocks, where you have to climb in order to reach it and then sit there to enjoy an aerial view of what’s going on around you. Basically, it’s the opportunity to literally sit high up in the sky.

Of course, slacklining is on the menu also: a somewhat challenging activity if you’re trying it for the first time. It pretty much tests
your ability to focus and to balance your body which isn’t easy once you’re up there on that tiny rope. And let’s not forget about Yoga, and many more activities that might seem tedious at first, but once you set your mind on doing them, they are totally worth your while.

The participants can camp on site overnight, enjoying the pleasant weather of Armenia during this time of year. Even though daytime in Hell Canyon offers scenery that is pure feast to the eyes, there is something magical in spending your evening in the middle of Nature, in a tent. You’ll connect with it like never before, feel it and enjoy it on other levels.

The popularity of this event is due to several factors being combined together such as the marvelous location in which it takes place, nestled between picturesque rocks and green fields, also the fact that it allows the chance to assemble several types of adventure activities in one area, making it the ideal opportunity to socialize and bring together young adults and families passionate about nature and this type of sports.

Moreover, the event also has an extra appeal given the fact that everyone is eager to get back to active life post-Covid and the tourism sector in Armenia as well as all over the world is gradually restarting. 

Armenia is known for its spring/summer festivals and there are plenty more to come. From food related events to cultural celebrations, there’s definitely something for everyone. This year, taking all the right precautions, but with the world starting to get back on track, we are yearning again to celebrate and fill our days with positive emotions and memories, and Armenia is the ideal place for that!
