It has been a very long time in the works, but we are now super excited to announce that we are introducing the very first fully-uplift-assisted mountain bike holiday available in beautiful Slovenia. Trust us, Slovenia is going to be the next big thing – it is one of the most beautiful, trail-rich, friendly and wonderful places you will ever go on your bike. It may be the next-door-neighbour to Italy, but it feels like an exotic new land of enormous alpine-scale mountains and untapped ribbons of sun-dappled forest singletrack. This trip is unique, and returns to our roadtrip roots – the holiday takes a roughly circlar route right around the most mountainous areas of the country to show you an incredible array of trails.
The details of this trip are just starting to go live on the website – so check it out early, but remember it is still a work in progress, so more details will be added next week! And please excuse any errors – it is still under construction…
We first started hearing about Slovenia a few years ago through our friends at Mountain Biking UK magazine, and they put us in touch with some hugely knowledgeable and fantastic Slovenian riders – we knew that we simply had to get there and experience these trails for ourselves. We were told to expect legendary levels of flow, and outrageous levels of hospitality – and both points were immediately proven true. Never have we met people as welcoming, warm and open as the Slovenians we met everywhere we went…and boy, do their trails flow nad flow and flow! The adriatic coastal climate means very warm temperatures consistently from June to late September…
Our Slovenian guided holidays are unique – we use 3 different locations to accomodate you through the week; Soca Valley, Ajdovscina and Trzic. These have been carefully selected to be incredibly bike-friendly, whilst located perfectly for accessing the trails. On this trip, rather than having a choice of accomodation you get to see a mixture – but all are fantastic! The accomdation is positioned to minimise drive times and make great locations from which to head for the mountains each morning. Prices include airport transfers to and from Llubljana, all accomdation, qualified locals guides vetted and selected by Singletrack Safari, breakfasts, all van transport, daily uplifts and even lift tickets are included where required!
The package price is slightly higher than our usual prices to INCLUDE ALL UPLIFT both in vans and ski lifts – this is one holiday where you can control your finances…even if you can’t control teh grin on your face as you flow down these incredible trails.
Spaces for 2018 are SUPER limited ahead of a wider roll-out in 2019 – we are offering just 8 spaces per week, as the fully-uplifted format means that we need to have sufficient space in our vehicles (we uplift you many times through the week, but most days still feature a climb somewhere!) – and despit only announcing this today the first week is already half sold…
If you have been looking for a new destination with incredibly flowing trails, and cheap in-resort pprices you have just found Europe’s best kept secret – add in the hot, sunny climate, huge descents, welcoming people and the best organised MTB holiday company in the business (yes, that’s us!) and you may have just found your perfect holiday for this summer!
"5 stars - thoroughly recommend it to anybody who loves challenging natural technical single track "
