We know our backyard like the palm of our hand and can keep you busy for miles and miles. We first gonna warm up riding sweet flowy single trails up and down Ljubljana`s hills. On the following day we are taking you on a real alpine adventure to Kranjska Gora for some of the most scenic mountain biking in Slovenia including Vrsic pass.
Day 1: Meet in Ljubljana, boutique hotel Vander 4*
Your guide will meet you in Ljubljana old town in charming boutique and design hotel Vander. You can choose between regular full suspension mountain bike (Pivot Mach 6) or ask for an extra e-boost choosing one of our very high-end full suspension e-mountain bikes (Pivot shuttle).
After quick orientation and bike fitting our guide will take you for a ride to our favorite single trails in the woods of Ljubljana. We stop to see our friends in bike park to practice and refresh some skills we will need on our rides and to have fun. After morning session and riding we stop for typical lunch in the shades of an old chestnut’s trees. Place is famous for its grilled dishes, “čevapčiči”, baked beans, veggies and “kajmak”soft cheese. Real Balkan feast. This will give us energy for an afternoon ride where we explore endless Golovec trails. When your heart will shout for more, but your legs will say it is enough we will stop for a refreshing local brew in one of our favorite pubs along Ljubljanica river and toast to a great day on bike.
Time at your leisure and dinner on your own. We are happy to help you with recommendations and booking.
Distance cycled: 20-35km, 500-800 mts altitude gain (*we can adjust trip length and difficulty according to your preferences)
Day 2: Alpine trails of Kranjska Gora and Vrsic pass
Today we first drive towards the Alps to the western edge of Slovenia only few miles from Austrian and Italian border. Charming Alpine village of Kranjska gora is adventure center of Slovenia and attracts outdoor enthusiast from all around the world. It is especially popular with bikers of all styles. We pass scenic emerald green Jasna lake with majestic peaks as the backdrop and start riding all the way up to Vršič Pass (1611m).
The road to the Vršič Pass is considered to be one of the most beautiful mountain roads in the whole of Europe. You will be surrounded by Dolomite-style peaks reaching high above. Slowly, with lots of ‘photo stops’, we reach the top of the pass which rewards us with some of the best mountain views in Slovenia. For a boost of energy we enjoy typical Slovenian dishes in cosy mountain hut, before incredible descents back down valley to Kranjska gora.
We end our ride with a gellato (Italy is only few miles away) or cold drink before heading back to Ljubljana
