Located on the outskirts of Ljubljana, Velika Planina is a high mountain plateau renowned for its authentic shepherd huts and beautiful views of the Kamnik–Savinja Alps and beyond. Velika Planina is also a perfect MTB destination.

The MTB tour will take you up into the mountains north of Kranjska Gora, so you can enjoy the view on the Julian Alps giants on the opposite side.

Most of the tour runs through cool forested areas and down off-road single-track trails. There is plenty of room for customisation of the routes, making the terrain we encounter suitable for both MTB beginners as well as experienced mountain bikers. What makes this MTB tour incredibly unique is that its top-notch routes run through pristine natural surroundings, located practically in the heart of a European capital. Diehard mountain bikers will also get a chance to try out sections of the world-famous “Golovec trails”.

Take a ride through one of the most beautiful forested karst plateaus in Slovenia. We’ll venture down a network of incredible forest trails right in the heart of Triglav National Park and enjoy breath-taking views of the Julian Alps. Idyllic villages, green pastures with grazing cattle and traditional cheese-making still alive and kicking, Pokljuka is a vision of Alpine paradise, made for biking.

Pokljuka is also right next door to Lake Bled, and that’s where we’re taking you after the biking thrills across the pastures. We’ll stroll down to the famous alpine lake, taste the famous kremšnita dessert, and if you want, visit the oldest castle in Slovenia, perched on a cliff overlooking the lake.

DAY 6 - Alpine Pastures above Tržič

This MTB tour takes place on the picturesque slopes under the Karawanks and the longest mountain in Slovenia, Košuta. We start off by ascending through shady forests, until we reach the wide-open mountain pastures, where we enjoy the fresh mountain air, endless views of the valley and the peaks of the glorious rocky giants towering above our heads. Compared to Velika Planina, this high mountain plateau is more peaceful, wild and less visited. A truly unspoilt natural wonder.

The views extend in all directions, and our electric-assist bikes make the ascent and descent a super pleasurable experience. After the exciting biking escapade, we’ll swoop down to the emerald jewel called the Soča River, where we’ll marvel at its splendour and relax in the refreshing cool of the riverbanks. The surroundings are, like every pace we’ve visited, truly inspiring.

Frequently Asked Questions

I am a single traveller, how can I book?

Don’t worry, just drop us a line in our inbox. We will do our best to try and find you some company, so if you are flexible in your travel dates, let us know as well. Do you want a private trip? No problem, we got you covered too.

Why is the accommodation not specified?

We are always looking for the perfect fit for you. We use a few different accommodation providers that fit our standards but they are subjected to availability, especially in the high season. We can also adjust the holiday, keeping in mind your preferences and budget and can always find a more suitable solution for your taste.

What is the age range of people who come on these holidays?

Our tour caters for a wide age range, typically between 30 and 60 years old, but age is simply a state of mind, as they say, and we welcome anyone over the age of 18! 
Tours are designed at your own pace and you will enjoy no matter what your age. 

Each evening your guides will chat with you about the following day’s activities and give you an idea of the sorts of trails you can look forward to. If there’s anything you feel anxious about, your guides will be happy to discuss it with you.

What if I am travelling solo?

Many of our travelers join as singles. We charge single supplement fee to solo travelers for single room use. But don’t worry, we can pair you with another traveler of the same gender if you like.



Am I fit enough?

Cycling planned on our cycling holidays is moderate, with some a bit more technical sections but mostly run on gravel and dirt roads. The e-bikes will help us out on most of the ascents and you will choose your own pace. All out the tours on MTB holidays are adjustable and our guides will make sure to make the best of your holidays.

Does the group spend time together in the evenings?

Where the meals are included in the itineraries they are in a group setting. 
Your guide will also be with you during these scheduled meals. 
During the meals that are not included in the itinerary, you are free to choose where you would like to dine. Your guide will advise you of the best places to dine. You can choose to join with others and decide to dine together somewhere or if you desire some independent time, you are also always welcome to do your own thing.

What should I bring with me?

It is important to dress for the season. Slovenia has all 4 seasons, so please check the weather forecast before the holiday regarding temperatures and rainfall. When you are close to the Alps, you can see all 4 seasons change in the same day, so your best bet is to always bring an extra layer and rain gear. Your guide will let you know each day what kind of weather you can expect for the next day and don’t worry - extra layers can always travel behind us in a van.

What is the tourist tax that is not included in the price?

A tourist and promotion tax is a fee that every visitor has to pay for each overnight stay all over Slovenia. It consists of two parts: each municipality charges a tourist tax fee, which goes towards financing and maintenance of tourist facilities in the area, and the Slovenian Tourist Board charges a promotion tax, which is used to promote Slovenia. Depending on the municipality, the tax rates vary - from 1.5€ in some locations to 3.13€ in Ljubljana or Bled (per person, per night).

I only recently got into e-biking and I am so glad I did this trip with Slovenia Holidays. I have learned so much about how to cycle eMTB efficiently and also about Slovenia and its great places, I would never have guessed it is such a perfect mountain biking destination. The tours were great and they were all tailored to our skills and Klemen even changed the itinerary a bit to make the most of out of the weather and trail conditions. Great holidays!

Staying in wonderful Ljubljana everything is ridiculously close - each day we were biking in a different part of the country, but everything was so close. The tour selection is great and the trails are just as difficult as you want them to be. I still think about how beautiful Pokluka is or how great the ascent up the Kobarid Stol was.

A holiday for a true mountain biking lover! Slovenia is pretty steep so you won’t regret having some electrical support beneath you, it just makes it so much more enjoyable while each tour still remains a challenge. Klemen is a great guide and has taken such good care of us. The hotel was pretty nice and had a good location so we could walk around Ljubljana in the evenings. Such a lovely little capital. The tours are selected in a way that you also get to see most of Slovenia’s top highlights and really experience Slovenia to the fullest. Afterwards we also booked an extension suggested by Klemen and spent two more lovely and relaxing days at the seaside and visited Postojna cave.
