Description

This all-inclusive mountain biking holiday is perfect for enduro MTB enthusiasts. Based in the very heart of Slovenia, Ljubljana, each day holds a new adventure and will be spent exploring the amazing single trails that run through the country’s most epically varied and picturesque regions. A local guide will make sure you experience every location to the fullest, so all you have to do is enjoy the ride.

Slovenia is a paradise for mountain biking and has become an increasingly popular destination for this exciting sport in recent years. The country’s terrain boasts incredible diversity on a small and well-connected area, meaning you can be zooming down the slopes of the wind-swept Karst one minute and tackling mountain passes of the Julian Alps the next. And that’s exactly what this holiday is about. We have created a specially planned itinerary that includes different landscapes and a multitude of various MTB trails for each day of your trip.

A local guide, who knows the best hidden trails inside-out, will take you to a number of fascinating locations around Slovenia and even across the Austrian and Italian borders. This unique MTB holiday combines visits to bike parks where you’ll be lift-assisted by gondola or by van to the top of your descent as well as a multitude of other superb wild trails where you’ll practice your berms at your own steam. Extensive networks of trails guarantee adrenaline rides are accompanied by breath-taking scenery. Your guide will make sure difficulty levels are tailored to your abilities and that everything runs smoothly. We’ll also take care of any technical issues that may arise along the way.

Grab your bikes and hit Slovenia’s exquisite MTB trails on different terrain that demand different riding styles on the most comprehensive biking holiday ever!

Frequently Asked Questions

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?

Most of the biking will be van or gondola powered. With the exception of day 5, the trails are short and you are welcome to do as many rides as you want. On day 5, we will have to overcome around 900 vertical meters to reach the top of Matajur. At the very end, there will be some pushing of the bikes, but the reward on the downhill is more than worth it!

How technical will the biking be?

Most days there will be many options available, from easy flow trails to more technically demanding. You will always be able to choose your preferred level, there will always be enough trails for everyone confident with an occasional rock or root on a trail.

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 be left 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).
