Close to the foothills of the Alps, Ljubljana is the ultimate mountain biking hub. You’ll rarely find another capital city in the Alpe-Adria region or even in Europe that provides you with such a diversity of MTB experience within such a compact area. For certain trails you can even jump on two-wheels right in front of your hotel, while others take in long scenic rides with a provided shuttle.

Within three full days of cycling you’ll experience three different biking spots (lift or shuttle) as we want you to fully embrace the diversity that Slovenia can offer. Enjoy these unforgettable trails enriched with second-to-none scenery and great views. Following a day on the saddle if you still haven’t used up all of your energy, why not take a pleasant evening stroll through the city streets and squares – notably one of the most charming cities in Europe.

Itinerary

DAY 01

VELIKA PLANINA

From the first day, start to fully take advantage of your time to discover and explore Ljublijana – three days can go quicker than you think! You’ll be shuttled to the Velika planina cable car station leading you among the pleasant greenness of the mountain plateau. Velika planina known as the Big Pasture Plateau really is a natural beauty which merits a visit in its own right. It’s found in the heart of the Kamnik Alps with a dispersed high-elevation settlement of mostly herders’ dwellings. We move up to the mountain by cable car then faced with plenty of choices as to which route to pick for the decent. There’s one thing they all have in common – enjoyable single tracks in a splendid environment always making you want more.


DAY 02

KRVAVEC

During wintertime, Krvavec is a ski resort while during the summer months it transforms into an adventure park. Located just 30 km or so from Ljubljana makes it a natural choice for those looking for either a one-day or weekend adventure. What’s more, it can also offer you a full-blown sports experience. The resort can be accessed by cable-car.


DAY 03

VOGEL

We’ve saved the best for last. Vogel is a ski resort that lies within the Triglav National Park. It’s located above the glacial Lake Bohinj, Slovenia’s largest lake. The wonderful view down over the lake and surrounding mountains is what makes this day spent at Vogel such a unique experience. You can get access to the Vogel resort via a cable car and chair-lift, a must for a proper gravity MTB biking day.
