DAY 2 – Velika Planina

At the beginning of the Alps and not far from Ljubljana lies the high mountain plateau of Velika Planina. Well-known for its authentic shepherd huts with mesmerising views of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps and the Ljubljana basin, it is also a fantastic MTB destination. It will be a day of high mountain biking on macadam trails and slightly more rugged pastoral paths. But every once in a while, we’re going to go down some super soft grassy terrain that feels like cycling on puffy clouds. All in all, the varied terrain of the plateau is an excellent introduction to the mountain biking world of Slovenia.

DAY 3 - Kranjska Gora

The second day of cycling will take us a little further from Ljubljana to the arguably most famous alpine resort of Slovenia. Because of its immediate alpine surroundings, Kranjska Gora is an all-year-round sports destination — Skiing in the winter, hiking and cycling in the other three seasons. This day’s tour will lead us through the Alpine Valleys, past the Zelenci Springs, and into the Karawanks mountains, from where you’ll be able to enjoy exquisite views onto the sharpest peaks of the Julian Alps. From there, we will then return down to Lake Jasna and relax with some refreshing drinks while the sun paints the mountains pink and slowly sets behind the horizon.

DAY 4 - Mountain biking in Ljubljana

Mountain biking in the heart of a European capital city — Doesn’t that sound like a weird juxtaposition? Not in the green country of Slovenia, and a capital city with lots of green areas. You will ride through pristine nature on cool forested areas and off-road single trails. There will also be lots of options for choosing different trails, making them suitable both for beginners and experienced mountain bikers. Even diehard mountain bikers will get their fair share of fun by challenging themselves on the downhill sections of the famous “Golovec Trails”.

DAY 5 - Pokljuka

On the fifth day of your holiday, we’ll take you to the heart of the Triglav National Park, to Pokljuka, the largest forested mountain plateau in Slovenia. It is covered by vast spruce forests, interspersed by countless trails with views of the Julian Alps. From time to time, green pastures with grazing cattle will open up in the middle of the magical forests. There, traditional cheese-making in authentic shepherd huts is still alive, so you’ll even be able to buy some.

After exploring the Alpine paradise of Pokljuka, we’ll ride down the road to the magnificent Lake Bled. There, we will check out the postcard-worthy views and taste the famous ‘Kremšnita’ cream cake. And if you’re up for it, we can visit the oldest castle in Slovenia, perched high on a cliff overlooking the lake.

DAY 6 - Alpine Pastures above Tržič

From the previous day’s vast forests, we’re going to the wide-open pastures below the grassy slopes of the Karawanks. The day will start with a short climb through the shady forest until we reach the open spaces below the longest ridge in Slovenia, the Košuta mountain. We’ll be riding on gravel tracks and single trails, breathing fresh air while accompanied by excellent views of the valley. Compared to the other locations we have visited until now, this one will be the most peaceful and wild. And as a cherry on top, you’ll also have a chance to try arguably the best ‘Štruklji’ in Slovenia, at the Kofce Hut.

DAY 7 – Kobariški stol

We’ve saved the best for last. Crossing the mountain of Kobariški Stol is one of the most amazing MTB experiences in Slovenia. We will drive over the Vršič mountain pass and down to the increasingly Mediterranean climate of the Soča Valley. From there, we will ascend the tough (but not for us e-bike riders) but extremely scenic old mule path from the First World War. The endless views of the valley and the grassy slopes above and below us are gorgeous, so be sure not to forget to stop and enjoy them. When reaching the top, keep your eye open for any paragliders ready to take off. From there, we will descend down the panoramic ridge to the valley of the emerald Soča River, where we’ll relax at its banks, pools, gorges, and cascades.

Ride on a bike in pristine nature, surrounded by majestic mountains. Experience unforgettable views from incredible locations. An active holiday, for which you don’t need to be in perfect shape.

Have you ever wished to go on a holiday like this?

Now you can. Just join us on this electric mountain bike holiday in Slovenia.

In this week of biking, you’ll have a chance to explore the natural wonders of Slovenia. No high-traffic asphalt roads. Most of the pedal-turning will be done off the beaten track, on countryside lanes, macadam roads, and single, all guiding you through pristine and diverse natural environments. From the tranquil paths in the vast spruce forests of Pokljuka to the remote trails below the epic mountain ridge of Košuta.

You will be astounded by the views on your way. This holiday doesn’t just take you to nature. It takes you to fantastic locations, surrounded by the high mountains of the Alps. This makes for some incredible panoramas and a lot of photo opportunities. Every day of cycling here will reward you again and again. You’ll see the sharp peaks of the Julian Alps surrounding Kranjska Gora and stop for the panoramic views of cute shepherd huts on Velika Planina. Just a week of this holiday will leave you with countless memories and photos of incredible views an average Joe sees in a lifetime. That is possible in Slovenia.

But you must be wondering, how fit should I be? Lifts probably aren’t on every beautiful mountain in Slovenia, and climbing uphill with a bike is quite demanding.

We have a perfect solution for that — Our top-grade electrically-assisted mountain bikes. They make uphill climbs easier, enabling everyone to reach high-mountain places, previously reachable only by extremely fit people. You’ll be able to enjoy the view more and struggle to catch your breath less. This holiday is suitable for every level of fitness. And because the E-bike helps the cyclist relative to his input, you’ll never need to worry about differences in fitness between group members. There will be no need to wait for each other. You can set your E-bike to help you to such an extent that you still put in the effort and make reaching the top that much more rewarding.

This is an active but stress-free holiday. That much more, if you choose our guided option, meaning there will be a professional guide accompanying you on your daily adventures. He will make sure the program runs smoothly and tailor it to your needs and capabilities. Your base will be in the capital city of Ljubljana, from where you’ll head out to a new location every day. Every evening when returning from exploring nature, all the perks of the city will be there for you to enjoy.

Join us on the eMTB holidays in Slovenia and spend an unforgettable vacation here in this small and diverse country.

Things to know

We offer road cycling, trekking cycling and mountain biking holidays.
Our road cycling holidays are suitable for avid road cycling enthusiasts whose endurance is high enough to withstand multiple long cycling days in a row.

Our trekking cycling holidays are suitable for anyone, as the stages are short enough for most people, and the terrain is not technical — mostly tarmac and gravel. They will still be enjoyed most by people who cycle occasionally and feel comfortable with multiple days in a row on the saddle and some moderate climbing. For those looking for more leisurely cycling holidays, we offer an e-bike option.

Our e-MTB holidays are suitable for most people comfortable on a mountain bike who are fine with some rougher gravel roads and steeper hills, made easier with electric assistance. However, the single trails MTB holidays are suitable mostly for avid mountain bikers, as they tackle technical trails and fast descents, but are very adjustable to your skills and style of riding.

On our guided tours, you will have professional local guides. Our guides will make sure that you will have expert guidance combined with great fun and a memorable experience.

We are always looking for the perfect fit for you. We use a few different accommodation providers that fit our standards but they are subjected to availability, especially in the high season. We can also adjust the holiday, keeping in mind your preferences and budget and can always find a more suitable solution for your taste.

We recommend booking as early as possible. Most of our tours run through very touristy places where accommodation is limited. Most of the great places start getting booked for summer before spring.

It really depends on the level of your restriction. Vegetarian options are fairly easy to find in Slovenia, but vegan dishes, on the other hand, are extremely hard to come by in rural areas of the country and in smaller towns. Please note that the places where we stop for lunch are often traditional and may have difficulties accommodating you outside of their standard menu. We suggest you keep this in mind.

If you want to, sure! We are well aware that some people love to stay in groups while others prefer some more alone time on their trip. We wanted to give you the opportunity to do things your way. It is your holiday, after all! As long as you respect the group timings and locations designated by your guide, please feel free to customize your itinerary and create your own adventure!

Depending on the tour, generally late spring (May) and early autumn (September) are the best times, summer is of course also always great and some of our holidays are also possible in winter! Read more about cycling seasons in Slovenia.

Most of the tours can be done even in light rain, as long as you dress accordingly. It is not unusual in the summer that there are afternoon thunderstorms, so early starts are advisable. If the weather looks really bad, we will try to adjust the tour or skip a stage with a shuttle.

Our tours can be adapted to any bike type, whether road, gravel, or mountain bike. We are in constant communication with you to find the optimal conditions for your cycling holidays in Slovenia.

The most versatile option is a gravel bike, even if you are coming on a road cycling holiday. It does not really affect your road performance while allowing you to take some scenic backroads that can be in a slightly worse state than the main ones. A gravel bike is usually more comfortable as well.

In any way, Slovenia is a very diverse country and there is something for every cyclist. Whichever bike you choose, we will find the perfect route for you to take on your cycling holidays.

 

Our eMTB tours are suitable for most cyclists comfortable on a mountain bike. Some of the ascents are steeper and some of the roads a bit rougher, but our high-performance electric mountain bikes make it a piece of cake and let you enjoy the amazing mountain scenery of Slovenia with your preferred amount of effort. Some of the descents are a bit steeper, and there is an occasional root or a rock, so basic skills of handling a bike are advisable. The tours are highly adjustable, and everybody will find the right amount of challenge.
