Schedule down below:
We meet at 16.00 in our office in Ljubljana. After a short introduction we pack our bags and bikes take a trip to the north western mountainous part of Slovenia, to the town of Kranjska Gora, situated in a picturesque valley near the Austrian and Italian border. After dinner we will have a short meeting where all tour details will be explained by your guides. Overnight in Kranjska Gora.
First day ride take us from Kranjska Gora to town of Mojstrana and in to Vrata Valley. Vrata is most famous and also the most popular alpine valley. At the upper end it “crashes” into the wide Triglav north wall, and a few-minute ride from the parking lot will be rewarded with a splendid view of the wall. You will feel its power even if you don’t have the intention to hike further towards Triglav, and have a look at the magnificent symbol of Slovenia from up close without special effort. On the way to Vrata a stop-over at Peričnik waterfall is a must. After the brake the ride will take us back to Mojstrana and trough Radovna valley. The Radovna valley is nested between the Pokljuka and Mežakla Alpine plateaus and hides a rich history of iron working and forestry and great natural beauty. Cycling down the Radovna valley is relaxing and not overly demanding. The Trip is finished in Bled, where a swim in the lake makes for a perfect end of the day. Overnight stay in Bled.

After morning coffee in Kobarid we will start climb on Kobariski stol – great MTB ride above Soča valley. The van saves us the trouble of pedalling up the tarmac road and all we have to do is an hour and a half’s steady climb up a fireroad to the mountain pass, where we are again treated with a beautiful view on Adriatic sea and Kanin mountain range. The descent takes us down a disused military alpine road from the 1st World War down to the village of Podbela, where we can have brake and a swim in Nadiža river.

It is the highest pass in Slovenia, as well as the highest in the Eastern Julian Alps. The road across the pass, now known as Russian Road (Ruska cesta), was originally built for military purposes in the early 19th century and followed an earlier trade route. The view on the surrounding peaks will take your breath away. Descent to Kranjska Gora will take us down the old part of the road and Mali Tamar valley.
