MTB Freeride Camp Slovenia – fantastically technical loop around Triglav

It is always an adventure to break new ground and deep, personal feelings evoke. We spotted this region a while ago. The landscape is so craggy and wild, the rivers so strikingly  blue and clear and the forests so unspoilt as nowhere else. It’s a spectacilar display of nature, which simply left us speechless. The massive mountain ranges surrounding Big Mount Kanin are impressive. The summits offer a view of Triglav, the symbol of the Slovene Nation. The trails here are pretty rocky but, nevertheless, a great biking experience.  The region around the Soča,  a kayaking paradise, is also a perfect place for biking. As we travelled further south, the landscape became gradually dominated by forest. Then Matajur with its great downhill trails towered over the settlement Kobarid. For us, it was impossible to not leap into the Soča. We could clearly feel that the Mediterranean Sea was near. After this refreshing dip, we changed  direction slightly and found the beautiful Lake Bohinj nestled in a lush green valley. Rugged rock formations, large forests and the view of the lake create a wonderful atmosphere. The valley of Kranjska Gora is waiting for us with an absolutely great trail at the foot of Dovška Baba, which embraces three countries – and the best comes at the end. A wonderful trail, nestled in the massive basin of Mangart only ends at the beautiful lakes around Laghi di Fusine.

Freeriding around Triglav is a lonely jewel for bikers who like technical challenging trails. According to the two groups of 2016, this tour requires very technical biking skills, but for those of you who have the skills, will find yourselves in riders’ heaven with great Slovenian cuisine.

We are purposely not giving away the details of the route of this tour. At the moment, no other guiding company offers this tour, because one has to explore the whole area before beeing able to guide here. We worked really hard to prepare this camp for you. If you are passionate about mountain biking and nature, and have some pioneering spirit, you would simplylove this camp. You will definitively experience tremendous impressions of the unique landscape and trails. You will break new ground in a region you thought you knew already!

This offer is subject to changes, as we have not completed our exploring. New tours and opportunities might come up, which we would then integrate in the tour to optimise this trip for you.

One more thing:
 This tour is challenging when it comes to your riding techniques and physical fitness! You ought to have experience with challenging trails and different kinds of soil – this is a prerequisite! Few parts of this tour are exposed and will be signalled by the guide early on. You need good stamina and a certain drive to ride, push and carry your bike about 1,000 metres up in one go. We assume that you control your bike safely and use equipment of high quality.
