Singletrack in Slovenia
Join us for an unforgettable trail riding tour in Slovenia! You will evolve as a rider while having the chance to learn something new – river kayaking in one of Europe’s most beautiful waters!
The Slovenia bike tours are aimed at those learning to ride mountain bike trails, wish to evolve their riding, and in the process meet new people and hang out. We travel in small groups and keep the tempo at a comfortable level while pushing your limits forward to make you a better rider for when you return home. We’ll give you some helpful tips on what to practice before the tour starts.
Slovenia is a bit of a hidden gem. Wedged between Italy and Austria, the small country offers mediterranean coastline, high alpine terrain and an abundance of narrow and scarcely trafficked trails. Mountain biking is huge in Slovenia but the trails aren’t nearly as worn as in other parts of the alpes and our guides knows where to find the best terrain for the day. During the week we’ll experience rocky high alpine trails that move through dense forests and through the vineyards to the valley floor. We use shuttles to get a bit up hill and spend half the day in the saddle, after lunch we get ready for the next adventure; a beginners class in river kayaking three afternoons of the week.
We pick you up at the airport in Venice and shuttle you to the lodge to unpack and rest up after the travel. If we’re up for it, we take a short ride in the area to make sure bikes are in order.
After breakfast we go to Bike Park Kranska Gora to ride a full day of downhill trails. This is the best way to get used to trail riding fast. Guides will be giving tutorials for those not used to riding downhill. We’ll leave the park prepared for the natural trails in Slovenia.
Our guide picks us up and drives us to one of the magnificent trails in the area. We get some shuttle assistance on the way up but will be riding both up and down. After lunch we gear up for the next activity, a beginners course in white water kayaking.
Like day three, bike riding before lunch and kayaking after. In the evening, we enjoy dinner in one of the restaurants in the village.
Rest day or own activities! Riding and kayaking puts strain on the body, make sure to rest up with a day off. Take a hike, a calm ride, have a coffee in the village or try one of the many activities Bovec has to offer. There is canyoning, climbing, cave exploration and zip-line for the adventurous and lots of outdoor museums for the history buff.
Guided mountainbike ride before lunch, and after lunch we take the last kayaking lesson.
Last day of riding, we’ll make it a longer one than before and enjoy lunch along the trail. The afternoon is spent packing and we finish off with dinner together the last night.
We return to the airport in Venice and fly home with new memories and friends.

Q&A - Get Prepared
Where do we fly out?
Our trips to Slovenia departs from Oslo, Stockholm and Gothenburg. You will get detailed information of your flight when booking.
How do I dress?
Weather changes fast in the mountains and it’s important to be prepared. Dress with layers and avoid cotton closest to your body. A warm sweater or rain jacket is practical to keep warm when we stop for breaks. Helmet is mandatory on all tours, thin gloves and knee pads are recommended.
What to bring?
Either you rent equipment or you’ll need a well serviced, functioning mountain bike for heavy trail use, preferably full suspension and rather durable than light. No-one likes being stranded on the mountain because the materials fails. We recommend that you bring spares specific to your bike, like hanger, spokes etc. Durable tires are recommended, as is a back pack large enough to fit some spares, food pack, water and extra clothes.
What is expected of me?
You’re in good shape and used to spend some hours in the saddle for multiple days in a row. You enjoy pedaling uphill in a moderate tempo and wish to progress and get faster on the downhills. Yo have been to a bike park before as well as have ridden some natural trails with roots, rocks and ruts but you also know when it’s time to swallow your pride and get off the bike rather than risking your health.
What happens if the weather is bad?
We adapt the riding to the conditions but we normally don’t cancel.
Are children welcome?
We welcome youngsters from age 16 in the company of a parent
