Description of Ljubljana MTB trail tour

Most of the tour runs through cool forested areas and down off-road single-track trails. There is plenty of room for customisation of the routes, making the terrain we encounter suitable for both MTB beginners as well as experienced mountain bikers, hungry for a proper adrenaline boost. What makes this MTB tour incredibly unique is that its top-notch routes run through pristine natural surroundings, located practically in the heart of a European capital. Diehard mountain bikers will also get a chance to try out sections of the world-famous “Golovec trails”.

Our tour begins in the centre of Ljubljana. We follow the Ljubljanica River embankment straight uphill and into the woods. At first, the train is undemanding, with the difficulty level slowly increasing as we tackle the hilly terrain. Not to worry, the pace will be adjusted according to participants’ abilities. Gradually the forest path leads us to the village of Orle, from where we'll make our way down a smooth single trail, descending to the ancient Church of St. Urh. Our batteries recharged, it’s time to put out e-bikes to the test as we head uphill to reach the Golovec hill ridge before descending back towards Ljubljana.

Terrain: tarmac, gravel and dirt

The tour goes on some slightly more technical terrain, perfect for those seeking a bit of adrenaline.

I couldn't believe there's a trail right in the very city center. There's an actual hill in the middle of the city, which is crazy. Loved it!

What a single trail, wow!
Dexter Cohen
We rode mostly through the forest and that was perfect on a hot summer day. The trail is really good and Klemen knows his ways around. I recommend when in town.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear on Ljubljana MTB tour?

It is important that your clothes are comfortable. It is recommended that you also have something warmer with you in case of a temperature drop or cold wind. You can always leave excess clothes in the van after consulting with our guide.

Even though Slovenia is small, it has quite a diverse climate, so it is not unusual for the weather to be better in another part of the country. In that case, we will suggest a different tour where the weather will be nice. If it doesn’t suit you or the weather is too bad for cycling, you will get a full refund.

How many people will be in a group?

We believe that your experience will be better if the group is smaller, so there will be max. 8 guests per guide.
