Bike Hike Tours

DETAILS

Women Only Mountain Bike Vacations! We guarantee you 7 days of pure MTB fun on our Ladies riding at the Heart of the Alps adventure! This trip is tailored for those looking for a bit of excitement and adrenaline! At the same time, we improve your riding skills so you can become a better mountain biker! By the end of the tour, you will have accomplished more than you ever thought is possible while exploring the amazing landscape of Julian Alps.

Location and week plan

Escape into the mountains and experience beautiful nature! This week is designed for you to ride some of the most beautiful trails in the country! Meanwhile, you will experience some historical background and culinary art.

Trail riding in Kranjska Gora and its surroundings offers one of the best trails in this part of Slovenia and Europe. We will also visit nearby Italy, specifically Tarvisio, and discover some famous historical places. During our trip, we will relax next to the numerous mountain lakes and taste some typically Slovenian and Italian food at the end of the day!

The goal of the Ladies riding MTB tour: enjoy and strive to get better!:)

At the beginning of our tour, we will have three full days of riding. All days will be split into half periods of MTB and the other half will be reserved for other sports activities. There will be obligatory stops for proper Italian coffee and Slovenian lunch as well.

What's the weather like?

The weather in Kranjska Gora is typically Alpine. During that time of the year, it can be surprisingly hot with daytime highs over 26°C/80°F. At the same time, the temperature can suddenly drop by half if there is a summer storm coming in. We warmly recommend you plan for both and bring an extra raincoat with you.
