Description of Pokljuka Mountain Biking tour

Take a ride through one of the most beautiful forested karst plateaus in Slovenia. Venture down majestic forest trails in the heart of Triglav National Park and enjoy breath-taking views of the Julian Alps. Visit idyllic villages along the way and explore their traditional sheep and cow herding way of life, with authentic mushroom hunting and cheese-making practices.

Our tour starts at the Šport Hotel. We ride through the pastoral settlement Goreljek, from where an up-and-down trail takes us along an excellent macadam road to one of the most beautiful villages in Slovenia – Zajamniki. Also called the ‘highest street’, this place affords breath-taking views of the surrounding landscape. More experienced cyclists can descend down a fantastic single-track trail to the village below.

The journey continues down macadam roads, but a non-obligatory MTB detour is always available. The next stop is a cure little basin, apparently radiating a powerful surge of medicinal energy. You’ll be able to pick your own ‘healing stone’, which will help cure you of your ailments.

Brimming with positive energy, we’ll make our way to the Nordic Centre, followed by a lovely descent through the famous coniferous forests of Pokljuka. We will end the tour on the Zajavornik mountain pasture, home to one of the best and most authentic cheese factories where a local shepherd will present us with the traditional cheese-making techniques and offer us some of these tasty dairy goodies.

Such beautiful forests all around this trail! And it is perfect for summer months, cause going uphill, you will need that necessary shadow :)

Loved this trail. Took it some people I met in Slovenia. Great ride and great scenery. And you have to try the food on top - zganci and sour milk!
