Overview

Starting out from the very heart of Ljubljana, the Preseren Square, it is only a matter of minutes before we reach the first trails of the day in Tivoli Park, the largest green area in the centre of Slovenia’s capital.

After we have tested our legs and skill, we will get back to the streets of Ljubljana and take in some of its landmarks before hitting Ljubljana’s mountain bike trail paradise. The vast network of singletrack can keep you going, but a coffee break or lunch at a hilltop restaurant is possible half‑way into the day.

The highlights of the tour can be discussed over a round of drinks on the banks of the Ljubljanica River.

We will pick you up at your place of accommodation in Ljubljana. Transfers from Bled are possible but subject to prior arrangement.

“I can't recommend the mountain bike day tour I did enough. I ride reds at home and Tomaz planned the day perfectly with the right amount of climbing with amazing single track. The full suspension bike I used for the day was spot on also. If you want an experienced MTB guide look no further”
