An Adrenaline Rush

Have you ever wondered what happens during an adrenaline rush? Or what goes on in your body when you get that exciting, intense feeling during Solkan bungee jumping, when you try hydrospeed Bovec or when you go canyoning in Bovec, Slovenia? Adrenaline is a hormone and a neurotransmitter, sometimes used as medicine but mainly the substance that our body releases when it is in a potentially threatening situation. This prepares us for danger, putting our bodies into a state of shock which temporarily enables us to sharpen our senses and gain the power to get out of the alarming circumstances. Often, the so-called adrenaline rush makes it possible for people to fight threats even though they might be on the edge of exhaustion, which can save lives.

An Adrenaline Rush for Fun

Our body does not need to be in any real danger to produce an adrenaline rush. This can be achieved artificially, with different activities such as previously mentioned hydrospeed (Bovec, Slovenia) or canyoning (Bovec, Slovenia). Such sports raise our adrenaline levels, making us feel excited with butterflies in our stomachs. The feeling is so addictive that many people become obsessed with the search for that thrill. What is the reason behind the popularity of water sports such as hydrospeed Bovec and canyoning Bovec? Slovenia is a paradise for such activities, so a lot of people come there to find such stimulation. They say that they love being a part of such adventures because there is no real danger to them, however, the feeling they get from them is genuine. There is compelling logic to this. Of course, why on earth would you risk jumping out of a plane with a parachute, if you can get a comparable adrenaline rush in a much safer environment, dashing through the water.
