Two days of guided MTB riding around the beautiful Slovenian village of Kranjska Gora! In only two days you will experience the best of what Slovenia has to offer in MTB! Fun fact: Slovenian MTB was born in Kranjska Gora! To conclude, your MTB escape in Julian Alps is a perfect choice, if you are looking for a quiet but active escape in nature!
Some facts about the location:
Kranjska Gora is small but a lively Alpine town in the upper part of Slovenia called Gorenjska. Also, the town is only a few minutes drive away from Austria or Italy. The village lies under high mountains of the Julian Alps and the beautiful Triglav National park. Therefore, it offers truly magnificent scenery and trails that you only could only dream about!
In winter time, this village is a renowned Slovenian ski resort. Therefore, it has all the amenities that a modern resort should offer. There are supermarkets, a bank, a post office, a well-equipped medical center, a tourist information office and several sports shops. There is also an old part of the town with the church and many coffee shops, bars and restaurants. Consequently, even if there are several large hotels in the area, the village center retains its own identity. Main hotels allow non-residents to use their pools, gyms, and sauna for a small fee. The area is full of nice neighboring villages worth visiting. Other attractions are world-famous ski jumps in Planica or a spectacular waterfall in the village of Mojstrana. Out of the winter, Kranjska Gora becomes a very popular base for walking and mountain biking holidays.
