Mountain Bike Holiday
Slovenia – The Karavanke Alps
The alpine chain of mountains that is so well known in France, Italy and Austria extends east into the seldom explored Karavanke Alps of Slovenia. The mountain biking here was discovered by our very own local expert, and he has developed unprecedented knowledge of Slovenia’s secret singletrack.
Riding the ridgelines of the White Valley Ride or the Podpetza Mountain Ride, with 360 degree views down into the valleys as the singletrack snakes off into the distance – this is what Slovenian mountain biking is all about.
The trails here were cut by mules, miners and huntsmen over a hundred years of non-biking development, and only recently have they been discovered by us. Local legend and CycleActive expert guide Dixi, working with his son Anej, have pioneered mountain biking here. In his past life as a geological surveyor and then environmental engineer Dixi roamed the mountains, got to know the landowners, and explored every corner of this breathtaking landscape.
