RIDES / TOURS

 Guided tours

Good trails are not easy to find. Best way to get the most out of riding holiday is with a local guide.
Our team knows their business. Experienced and certified guides have put together best rides possible. Either we pedal or use shuttle, we are headed towards best ridgeline trails in the area. To be honest, not all our trails are crossing some ridges, but a lot do, and they are epic.
Guest can choose from Single riding day, to Weekend Blast, Multiday guided tours, ..and all of these with a combination of uplifts (shuttle and gondola) and/or pedaling. Tell us what you are interested in and we can tailor your holidays.
Pedal – Numerous allmountain trails reachable with pedaling distance. All day rides starting on tarmac roads in the bottom of the valley and climbing those gravel roads to the top of that viewpoint. A snack at the mountain hut before we reward ourselves with a smooth descent all the way back to the valley. Podpeca is the place to be.
Pedal + Shuttle combo – To reach more peaks and ridges in a day, a combination of a van (+ bike trailer uplifts) and a final push pedaling is perfect. Shuttle up to ¾ of the uphill and a warm up pedal to the start of the trail is optimal for multiday tours to explore the most.
Shuttle + gondola – A combination of both shuttle and gondola gives you nothing but descents. Ok, we do need to pedal a bit also, but gondola access at Petzen Ski resort brings you up to the 1700m above see and other shuttle routes come close to 1300m high. Bottom of the valley is around 600m high. For each of many trails we are dropping for 500 – 600 meters.

Weekend blas

From Friday afternoon to late Sunday, that is 2,5 riding day, which is awesome. Enough time to fully enjoy the majority of our best trails. Actually, it does not need to be weekend to blast through our trails, but it can be and it sounds great. Package is formed with desirable accommodation (look in Accommodation tab) and your choices of meals. To be able to fully focus/enjoy the riding, we can provide a full package with all services (guided tours, transfers, accommodation, meals, etc).

Multiday guided tours

From 3 to 7 days tours, accommodation, transfers from airports, daily meals and shuttles to starting points. We put together a tailor made package for your needs.
Usual riding aspect of the multiday guided tour is a combination of pedaling and shuttle. Each day a different area of our valley, sometimes the ride starts from the lodge/hotel or town center, other time we start higher up, where uplift/gondola drops us of. Lunch stops at local restaurant or mountain huts, where local dishes are served.. Different types of accommodation is listed bellow. Transfers from airports can be arranged with our van and a bike trailer, if needed. Guides give you a detailed information about the trails, weather forecast, the area we are riding and other info that you might be interested in (local heritage, Slovenia in general, etc..). Suggested is to write us an email in what you might be interested for and we will be happy to give you options of packages with prices and everything. Welcome!

Single day

Passing through or just short on time, single day is well worth to check our trails. We will work hard to meet your expectations and give you a good day riding our trails. Again, it depends on what you are after, whether is pedaling day, we love it, or some sort of other combination, we are up for it.

Prices

Many different riding styles and options and not many rides/tours are the same, that is why we think it’s best to ask us about pricing over our email/facebook/instagram and we would be happy to give you a promt reply according to your desires.

Underground biking

you have probably seen some photos and yes, they are real…Underground biking is something you don’t come across on a daily basis, so it is an interesting experience to try once you are riding this area. Old minning tunnels are spread all around under Mt.Peca and a connection tunnel, which leads from northern side towards the exit at Mežica town, can be done with a mountain bike, a guide and a head lamp. This way trails from one side of the mountain are connected to the system of some more trails on the other side of the same mountain. Inside is 100% dark at all times, but plenty to see in the mine and the tunnels get narrow, ..otherworldly experience!

 Accomodation

There are several excellent options of accommodation in our area to choose from. We cooperate with several local partners to organize the bet possible accommodation, which meets your desired riding program. In this manner we partner with different family run, ecological touristic farms, with a certain niche eco-hotel, specialized in mountain biking (Bike Nomad) or some simple alternative/affordable Airbnbs; Wooden hayrack Kozolec, wooden cottage, etc. On the other hand, we partner with a 3* spa/wellness hotel & apartments (Hotel Vesna). In general with all our accommodating partnes guests can choose from bed&breakfast to halfboard service.
