Trans Slovenia 04
This epic mountain bike adventure connects the panoramic slopes of Karavanke mountains, central Slovenia, the remote world of Karst, and the Adriatic coast. Great single trails and highly diverse terrain provide for lots of MTB excitement.
The Trans Slovenia 04 expedition focuses on offering an unforgettable experience by including as many excellent single trails as possible. This Slovenia bike trip begins in the village of Bleiburg, which is located next to the Austria-Slovenia border and the Petzen Flow Trail, the longest of its kind in Europe. The tour sets off with forest single trails, which were part of the Enduro World Series competition in 2018. Before reaching the Solčava panoramic road above the picture-perfect Logarska Valley, you get the opportunity to bike through abandoned mine tunnels.
Riding across the Velika Planina, arguably the oldest shepherds’ settlement in Europe that remains active up to date, leads to the medieval town of Kamnik. From here on, fun trails run directly to the center of Ljubljana city, where you can enjoy the atmosphere of one of the greenest capitals in Europe and bike around the UNESCO-listed Ljubljana Marshes.
Turning back to the hills, you eventually arrive at a very unique natural phenomenon, the intermittent Lake Cerknica. In the next part of this Slovenia bicycle tour, you pass by the world’s famous Postojna Cave and the UNESCO-protected Škocjan Caves. The final downhill ride from the Karst plateau leads to Piran, a romantic city on the Adriatic coast, which reminds of Venice.
This Trans Slovenia bike tour presents an alternative trail for starting the 2000 km long Trans Dinarica tour.
