Slovenia is small but very picturesque, unique and amazing for mountain biking. A very special place of Slovenia are the Julian Alps and Triglav National Park. This is where our base is and it offers you the best location to explore Slovenia’s beauties, ride the best trails and get to know the locals. The tour is run on a “hub&spoke” style which means that you will be based in amazing Bohinj valley in a biker friendly accommodation in the heart of Triglav National Park. This will be our base and from Bohinj we will explore different areas, ride different trails and get the real insight in the beauties of the Julian Alps. If you want to skip a day it’s not a problem at all. You can do a ride on your own, relax by the lake, go on a rafting or canyoning adventure, do a hike or fly with a tandem paraglide.
