This MTB tour guarantees you the best MTB experience around Slovenia! You will get to explore three Slovenian regions: the Alpine, Karst, and central Ljubljana region. In 5 days of MTB tour around Slovenia, you will combine the best sightseeing experiences with some great MTB riding!

Short description of the itinerary

You will arrive at Ljubljana airport on Wednesday afternoon/late evening and head up to the hotel in the city center. After you get settled in, you will greet your guide and enjoy your free welcome drink! Ljubljana is a lively, mid-sized European capital with lots of cafes, bars, restaurants and a really nice old part of the town. You definitely have lots of options to relax and enjoy while staying here.

In the following days, we will ride around the Alpine region of Slovenia, during which we will also stop at the magical lake Bled for a photo. We will change the mountain scenery for some fine Karst climate on Friday. Its name refers to a typical landscape formed on carbonate rock, which gives it a unique experience while biking. The next day, we will have the option of whether to spend it in the Alps or more south, depending on the weather. On our last day, we will stay around the capital and ride some of the best MTB trails just a few minutes away from your hotel! Small wooded hills of the Slovenian subalpine region are the most popular among local mountain bikers.

An intense, but 100% satisfying MTB tour around Slovenia awaits for you!
