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! The adriatic coastal climate means very warm temperatures consistently from June to late September…
Whilst Slovenia is a fairly small country it is outrageously blessed with some of the most impressive mountain scenery we have every come across – it is simply stunning wherever you go. It’s a very modern country, but its’ towns and cities are beautiful, with lots of historic architecture and distinctive red-tiled roofs. The purpose of this roadtrip is to let you see as much of Slovenia as possible – but with the minimum of effort.
Every riding day will begin with an uplift to as near to the top of the mountains as we can possibly get you – and normally after a minimal amount of effort you will soon be descending back towards the distant valley floor – these mountains are big! Most of our big descents here are over 1000m – and we even have some which are nearly 2000m vertically!
Our unique guided Slovenia mountain bike holiday roadtrip starts by meeting you at the captital city’s Ljubljana airport, from where you are transferred direct to your first accomodation of the week in the beautiful Soca Valley – Slovenia’s outdoor sports hub. Over the course of the week you will stay at 3 locations: Soca Valley, Ajdovscina and Trzic. The accomodation is split over 3 locations; the first fantastic countryside farmhouse B&B, the second is at super-modern, super-smart hostel (it even has it’s own floodlit jump track) before the last 3 nights at a beautiful outdoor-sports friendly eco-lodge. All are perfectly positioned for riding, with places to eat and drink nearby and usually right at the foot of the mountain for the first uplift of the morning!
