The Trans Slovenia 01 mountain bike tour offers supreme biking in Slovenia’s most beautiful regions, pedaling from the Julian Alps all the way to the Adriatic Sea in only 7 days. Unknown trails, diverse landscape and warm hospitality provide for an unforgettable MTB experience. Traveling from the mountains to the Mediterranean has never been so exciting.
The tour starts in Arnoldstein, a charming little town just across the Austrian border. An uphill ride to Mt. Peč is rewarded by a thrilling descent to Kranjska Gora, an Alpine resort known for skiing competitions. Before catching the sight of one of the most beautiful rivers in Europe, the Soča river, another mountain biking challenge awaits – the Vršič mountain pass. Leaving the Soča Valley behind, the trail then leaves the mountains and continues towards Goriška Brda, a region famous for high-quality wine and delicious home-made food. The last part of the tour offers excellent biking through the remote karst area, before the trail descents towards the coastal town of Piran, a small slice of Venice in Slovenia.
