Itinerary

Day 1 – Bike Park Krvavec

After arriving in Ljubljana, getting to know each other and sorting out our bikes, we go straight to Krvavec. It offers 16 kilometers of lift-served downhill MTB trails with the largest vertical descent of any bike park in Slovenia. Its 6 marked trails are for all levels of experience. For a long ride down, descend on the 10 kilometers of the combined Jezerca and Muci trail. If you’re up for more of a challenge, check out the jumps and berms of the Rock’N’Flow trail.

The cable car will be taking us up the hill and to the open spaces of the winter ski resort. Before you start your crazy downhill ride, take a breath and look around. The upper part of the park is all about endless views — Pastures and ski slopes allow you to see the whole Ljubljana basin and the highest mountains surrounding it, from the Julian Alps to the Kamnik-Savinja Alps.

Day 2 – Trail Center Kočevje

We’ll head down south to Kočevje, the land of the brown bear, to one of the fastest-growing biking centers in Slovenia. The local MTB enthusiasts have created a network of 9 trails of all difficulties where they also organize yearly events for mountain bikers from Slovenia and abroad. Although the elevation difference is not that big, the 15 kilometers of trails will make for a full day of downhill fun. We will use the help of a shuttle ride for some climbs and tackle the others by ourselves.

Day 3 – Golovec Trails

Even the capital city of Ljubljana has its own network of trails, right next to the city centre. The hardworking and enthusiastic MTB volunteers have created more than 6 kilometers of regularly maintained trails of all difficulties. From the easier flow trails, to the gaps and jumps on the more technically demanding trails, everyone will be able to find something to enjoy on the awesome Golovec hill.

All good things come to an end, and so must this exciting weekend. After some rest in the city, it’s time to say goodbye and start thinking about your next biking adventure in Slovenia.

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 single trail MTB holidays are designed for mountain biking enthusiasts who seek technical terrain and are looking for the best MTB trails in the area. The skill of handling a full-suspension mountain bike on technical terrain is necessary. Some tours are gondola assisted, and some climbs are pedal-powered — a satisfying combination for most with decent fitness and stamina.
