Mountain biking in the pristine mountains around Bovec is special, as the valley’s unique climate allows biking from March to the end of November.

We offer guided tours in a radius of 100 km around Bovec (upper Soča valley, upper Sava valley), ranging across many different degrees of difficulty and lengths. Trips can be further adapted to suit the size, experience and skill of our guests. Our guided trips offer much more than just spinning pedals for a few hours. They are an adventure immersed in the pristine nature and turbulent history of our part of Slovenia, brought to you by the legs and heads of our fully qualified guides.

All our guides have full UCI compliant certification. We also rent high-end CULT mountain bikes, from regular XC hardtails and full suspension all mountain bikes to freeride rigs. Our fleet exceeds 20 bikes so we are sure to have one to cover all your needs. We also house a bicycle gear shop and service.

FAQs

Q. Are we covered by insurance during the activity?

A. Yes. All customers are covered by our own accident insurance during the activities we provide. We would recommend that you take out your own general travel insurance as well to cover you for other aspects of your trip.

Q. Can an activity be cancelled?

A. Yes, occasionally we will cancel a planned activity if the weather will work against us or if something happens that would make it unsafe fro the activity to go ahead. In this event, we will either re-arrange the time of the planned activity or find you something just as good to do instead. Please be aware that when taking part in water-based activities the rain often only makes things more fun, so we wont be cancelling your white water rafting experience after or during a heavy downpour!

Q. Do I need a visa to travel?

A. As Slovenia is a member of the EU you will not need a visa to enter if you are a British passport holder. There is a toursit tax to pay but this is often included in your holiday price.

Q. Do we need special equipment?

A. Any special equipment you will need for each activity is provided by us. All you need is the appropriate clothing and footwear for the activity you are going to be going. For water-based sessions you need a swimsuit, old trainers and a towel.

Q. Is there an age limit?

A. Many of our activities are suitable for families with children. For kayaking children must be aged 7 or over and we have mountain bikes which are small enough for children aged 10. Our canyoning is only suitable for adults and teenagers aged 16 and over.

Q. What about safety?

A. It is important to be aware that all outdoor activities include a certain degree of risk, and this should not be underestimated. We can, however, reduce risk to a minimum, which we do by using highly trained and experienced guides who satisfy all requirements for the individual activities, and by observing safety rules covering every aspect of safety from your arrival at the centre to your happy return. Additionally, only high-quality, fully-tested equipment is used for all activities.

Q. What previous experience do I need?

A. Our kayaking is suitable for beginners but it will help if you have some knowledge of abseiling if you want to take part in canyoning as well. This is not absolutely essential however. Mountain biking is tailored to your abilities so as long as you can ride a bike you are more than welcome and for our other water based activities you just need to be able to swim.
