This is the ultimate mountain biking tour to discover the stunning natural treasures of Slovenian Alps. We will bike on low-traffic side roads and allow time to do short walks to waterfalls, viewpoints, have a swim in the turquoise river pools, get to know local shepherds, taste some delicious home-made food and simply enjoy Slovenia!
We start in Bled to do a warm-up ride and explore its beautiful surroundings, visit the narrow Vintgar Gorge and do a short hike to a stunning viewpoint. The following day we embark on the journey to encircle the Julian Alps. We will enjoy the best mountain scenery biking on gravel roads, low-traffic paved roads and also add some single trail sections, while our main luggage is being transported between accommodations. In the Soca valley we have to option to hop off the bikes for a while and hop on a rafting boat to see this amazing river from another perspective. We end the tour in the lively city of Ljubljana over a cold beer and a nice farewell dinner.
You have to be ready and fit enough to bike 30-50 km (20-30 miles) per day. There will also be ascents, 2 of them quite long (1000 m / 3300 ft of vertical climb), but there is an option of getting a shuttle at least a part of the ascent.
We dare to say that this is the best and most diverse mountain biking tour in Slovenian Alps. Do you dare to try it? :)
