TRANS SLOVENIA 04 • mountain bike tour
The Trans Slovenia 04 mountain bike expedition connects the steep slopes of Karavanke mountains and the central part of Slovenia with the magical world of Karst and the Mediterranean coast. Lots of MTB fun is guaranteed by highly diverse trails and beautiful landscape.
Like the original Trans Slovenia 01 tour, the Trans Slovenia 04 tour focuses on providing the best MTB experience on as many great single trails as possible. The adventure begins in the village of Bleiburg, situated just next to the Austrian-Slovenian border and the Petzen Flow Trail, the longest of its kind in Europe. The route sets off with some forest single trails, which were part of the Enduro World Series competition in 2018. Biking continues through abandoned mine tunnels, before reaching the Solčava panoramic road above the picture-perfect Logarska Valley.
Mountain biking across the Velika Planina mountain pasture leads to the lovely town of Kamnik. Fun interweaving trails run directly to the center of Ljubljana city, where one can feel the beat of one of the greenest capitals of Europe and bike around the UNESCO-listed Ljubljana Marshes.
The route then turns back to the hills and eventually reaches the one-of-a-kind intermittent Lake Cerknica. The next two MTB stages include biking along various karst phenomena, including the world’s famous Postojna Cave and the UNESCO-protected Škocjan Caves. The final descent from the Karst plateau leads to Piran, a picturesque city on the Adriatic coast, which reminds of Venice.
Trans Slovenia 04 is an alternative trail for starting the 2000 km long Trans Dinarica tour.
