DISCOVERING THE SLOVENIAN ALPS
In the Slovenian Alps, the world shines in a special light because the mountains are composed of white limestone. The peaks are steep, the valleys are deep, and the streams are full of clear water. The slopes are covered with thick forests and meadows with wild flowers. And most importantly, they are all perfect for mountain biking.
Day 1: MOUNTAIN BIKE PARK
Our meeting point is the centre of our Mountain Bike Park - Bike Hotel at Tourist Farm Koroš, a unique base for activities which take place in the surrounding forests and mountains.
Day 2: JAMNICA TRAILS
The Jamnica ride takes you to the hills surrounding our base. It features single trails, fire roads and some dirt roads. Smooth single trails, abandoned tractor trails, awesome views and manageable climbs make it perfect for people who are just starting with mountain biking. However, also professionals will enjoy the offered playground. Lunch will be enjoyed at a tourist farm around midday, after which some nice climbing will take you to our single trail park for a perfect ending to the day.
