Slovenia sits between Austria and the Adriatic sea, giving it a pleasantly warm Alpine climate for most of the spring, summer and autumn months. The region we visit is the Karavanke Alps, which stretch along the border with Austria and reach peaks of just over 2000m
This is a very flexible trip with a mix of terrain. We have focussed on the best singletrack trails with some double track, some scenic fire roads and a range of wild cart tracks, and forest trails too. With two guides and vehicle uplifts we can be flexible in catering for different abilities.
We stay in a lovely farmhouse on the rolling hills that lie directly beneath Petza Mountain, just a few kilometres from the Austrian border. The farmhouse is graded as a 4* tourist farm, producing much of its own organic food from its gardens for the home cooked evening meals. There is a small pool next to the large, open lawns that stretch out over the hill with views down into the valley below.
The local bike shop has Specialized bikes available to rent in Slovenia. We can reserve the bikes for you. Your payment and contract will be held direct with the bike shop. – these are fitted with full suspension and hydraulic disc brakes. If you prefer to bring your own bike then this is not a problem as most airlines now offer additional baggage space for a small additional fee. If you are uncertain about bike carriage or rental please call to discuss the options.
A full passport is required.
When you book a more detailed pre-travel pack will be sent to you with details on clothing to bring, money, bike packing and other useful topics.
