Explore the land where every bike tour is very personal.
Nature in the mountainous Slovenian world is remarkable. Slovenia is the green paradise of Europe, which maybe the local population is not so much aware of. We are proud owners of pristine mountains, healthy forests and clean rivers. Even the air is different and one can breathe in the oxygen with full lungs. I have experienced this on numerous occasions, while biking with friends high up in the Karavanken Mountains. We took in full breaths of clean alpine air, paddling somewhere high uphill. I usually stop at a certain point of the tour, sit on a tree stump or rock and simply admire the surrounding landscape, take in the view and fully “recharge my batteries”. These are such pleasant feelings, which are difficult to explain, like the ones, when after a biking tour, I step under a shower all tired and sweaty. Simply, amazing.
Mountain Biking in the Slovenian mountains is an unforgettable and pristine adventure. At each kilometer one bikes, it is possible to experience something special and unexpected. Slovenia is almost a little mysterious, when the word touches mountain biking and biking tours. On one hand, one can find marvelous biking trails, but on the other hand, a lot of energy and good will has to be put into making it all work – to make it a surplus biking tour. Once Slovenia gets under your skin, with its mountains, nature and biking paths, there is no way back.. you will return again and again.. for more.
