TRANS SLOVENIA 03 • mountain bike tour
Biking along the Austrian border, the Trans Slovenia 03 mountain bike tour leads from the eastern to the western part of Slovenia across scenic mountain ranges and beautiful Alpine valleys full of fun trails and unspoiled nature.
This mountain biking adventure begins in the second largest city in Slovenia, the city of Maribor. Situated next to the Pohorje mountain range, Maribor serves as a perfect starting point. Biking through the magical spruce forests of Pohorje, the trail passes the Črno jezero (Black lake) before reaching the Rogla Bike Park and ascending towards the Koroška region.
MTB fun continues at the Jamnica Single Trail Park and soon it is time for the highlight of the tour – underground biking through abandoned mine tunnels. The panoramic road leading above the famously beautiful Logarska Valley offers impressive views over the mighty walls of the Kamnik–Savinja Alps.
Crossing of a mountain pass leads to the glacier valley of Jezersko, from where a steep border trail leads into the heart of the Karavanke mountains. The path includes steep climbs on gravel trails and mountain pastures under Košuta, the longest mountain ridge in Slovenia.
A thorough exploration of the Karavanke trails opens up a wonderful view of Lake Bled, the symbol of Slovenia’s beauty. The last part of the Trans Slovenia 03 mountain bike tour leads from the picturesque Radovna Valley to Kranjska gora, a popular ski center at the foot of the Julian Alps.
Trans Slovenia 03 is an alternative trail for starting the 2000 km long Trans Dinarica tour.
