After 1,5 hour climb to the top of Kobariski Stol rewarded in a panoramic view of the majestic Julian Alps we descend on a century-old preserved soldier trail from the First World War. Here we enjoy a flowy, seemingly never ending trail that serpentines its way towards the Emerald Soca river. Then to add the cherry on top, we attach not only ourselves, but our bikes to the Zipline cable, where we fly over the Ucja Canjon, over the untouched and inaccessible river bed below. Once we guide you safely over two cables, we continue our tour on our last sweet piece of single trail, unique to only those who access it by the Zipline cables. After the ride we can also do some sightseeing and chec the museum of the Isonzo front. Overnight in Robidišče.

Where do we meet?
How is it with cash and expenses?
The official currency in Slovenia is the Euro – €. Additional costs you may encounter during your stay: lunch (cca. 10 – 15€/day), souvenirs, drinks in bars, massage treatments in hotels, etc. Most places allow payments by credit card, but we recommend you visit an ATM machine and pay in cash. Tipping is welcome (if you are satisfied with the service), not mandatory. The usual tip is up to 10 – 15% of the bill.
How about the food and meals?
In all multi-day trips breakfast & dinner is included in the price. Lunch is the only meal that needs to be paid separately (around 10 – 15€ per day). Breakfast and dinner are part of the half-board lodging option at each hotel. Each day includes a lunch stop at a specially selected local restaurant, serving local home made food, friendly atmosphere and range of foods characteristic for the area. Other lunch option is buying food in the grocery store.
We kindly ask our guests to report any special nutritional requirements in advance (vegetarians, gluten free …) so we can notify the hotels and restaurants accordingly.
What kind of bike do I need?
The best bike for our trips is a good all mountain or enduro bike with at least 120 mm of travel. The bike should not weigh more than 14 kilos as there is quite a bit of uphill riding. Hardtails are always an option, provided your knees and back can take the punishment.
Can I Rent a bike?
What spare parts for my bike should I bring?
Most bicycle spares and components are available for purchase in bike shops around Slovenia. But, to set your mind at ease, we recommend you bring the following set of spares with you:
- rear derailleur hanger
- one set of brake pads
- chain (if your bike chain is older than 6 months)
- 2 inner tubes (with the appropriate valve)
- 2 spokes (appropriate lengths for your wheelset)
- Shock pump
You can also do away with worrying about spares altogether and rent a bike for the week.
What clothing do you recommend?
With the exception of May and October, weather in Slovenia is rather stable and not too cold. Expected temperatures in May and October are between 10 and 25 C and temperatures between June and September are between 15 and 30 C. Packing rain gear is always good as we cannot guarantee the dry weather. Some long sleeves can certainly come in handy.
What should I pack?
Clothing and accessories:
- at least two cycling jerseys with short sleeves and one with long sleeves
- padded bike shorts
- bike helmet
- knee pads (elbow pads optional)
- bike gloves
