MTB in Slovenia
Slovenia continues to build its reputation as one of Europe’s top mountain biking destinations. Its diverse landscape, beautiful mountain scenery, abundance of superb single trails, and excellent infrastructure of bike parks all contribute to the unique experience of mountain biking in Slovenia. Abundant MTB trails are suitable for beginners and world-class bikers. In addition, many locals absolutely love mountain biking, which is reflected in an active MTB Slovenia community.
We have put together a list of top reasons why mountain biking Slovenia is so outstanding and why Slovenia should be your next mountain biking trip destination!
Biking in Slovenia is particularly enjoyable, because the country is small, yet extremely diverse. You can admire the views over the Alpine mountain tops, beautiful river valleys, rolling hills covered in vineyards and charming little towns, as well as the Adriatic coast – all in just a week-long MTB Slovenia tour.
On some of our mountain biking Slovenia tours, you will literally bike through a different landscape every day. Our MTB tours are not only diverse landscape-wise, but also terrain-wise. Get ready to bike on asphalt, gravel, dirt, rock and forest surface and show off your skills.
2. GREAT SINGLE TRAILS
Adrenaline junkies rejoice! Mountain biking in Slovenia means single trails, single trails and more epic single trails. Despite the recent influx of tourists, much of Slovenia remains off the beaten track, providing for many first class, yet unknown, mountain biking trails. Years of mountain biking Slovenia gave us the experience and knowledge to create MTB Slovenia tours connecting the best single trails our little country has to offer.
Carefully selected single trails guarantee a highly exciting MTB Slovenia adventure. Scenic ascents and long, thrilling descents through unspoiled natural environment are simply unforgettable. We take care of all the necessary shuttles and logistics, so you can focus on the most important thing – the pure joy of mountain biking.
Outdoor enthusiasts love mountain biking in Slovenia due to its natural beauty – lakes, rivers, forests, and mountains make it a real outdoor paradise. Almost two thirds of the country are covered in forests, and there are more than 40 nature parks and reserves. In fact, over a third of the country’s territory is protected within Natura 2000. This means that when mountain biking Slovenia you have plenty of possibilities to go off the beaten path and visit the less-visited attractions embraced by pristine nature.
MTB Slovenia is also a truly gourmet experience! Slovenian cuisine is as diverse as its landscape. It is influenced by climate, history and neighbouring cultures – fresh pasta dishes demonstrate the influence of Italy, while different kinds of strudel and probably the most famous Slovenian dessert, conversationally called “cremeschnitte”, present influences from the north. When biking in Slovenia, you will also find meat dishes usually served with dumplings, which are similar to traditional dishes from eastern-European countries such as Hungary and Croatia.
One thing all dishes have in common is that they are based on fresh locally sourced ingredients. Several Slovenian regions are also famous for its cheese and wines, which are ranked among the best in the world. Our mountain biking Slovenia tours of course include plenty of opportunities to pamper your taste buds.
