At Hike&Bike we love to bike and discover new places. Slovenia is small but very picturesque, unique and amazing for mountain biking. Our MTB week is just perfect to explore Slovenia's beauties, ride the best trails and let to know the locals. The tour is run on a "hub&spoke" style which means that you will be based in amazing Bohinj valley in a biker friendly chalet in the heart of Triglav National Park. This will be our base and from Bohinj we will explore different areas, ride different trails and get the feeling of Slovenia's diversity. If you want to skip a day its not a problem at all. You can do a ride on your own, relax by the lake, go on a rafting or canyoning adventure, hike in the Julian Alps or fly with a tandem paraglide.
