FAQs: Mountain Biking in Europe

What should I know about Mountain Biking Europe?

Complete with 10 major mountain ranges and 100 subranges, Europe boasts a plethora of different mountain biking opportunities. Whether you are looking for a leisurely ride through the countryside or a more intense adventure on the flank of a volcano, Europe will not leave you disappointed.

Every single country on the little continent boasts plentiful opportunities. Among the most popular options is heading along El Camino. Starting in the southwest of France, this incredible path, followed by St James, leads you all across the north of Spain and on to Santiago de Compostela. Quite the adventure.

Not only is mountain biking a great way to see Europe, but it is also an excellent way to exercise. You won’t even feel your legs or lungs working as you marvel at the stunning beauty all around you and rush down well-worn dirt tracks, getting that adrenaline pumping.

Absolutely excellent trip! Guide Cata was spectacular at assessing our skill level and picking the perfect trail. We would love to travel again with him. The trails around Cluj are great for MTB. I was less impressed with the ExploreShare interface. It was clunky to use and I wasn’t sure if messages were getting through. I did manage to find an excellent guide and experience, so I guess it all worked.

A perfect day with canoes during the morning, and e-biking in the afternoon, following Andres' routes. The equipment was first-class, and all our questions were answered on time. The weather was great, the views amazing, and we ended having dinner in a restaurant that had an unforgettable fabada. 100% recommended, and I hope I can go back soon!

We did a route on e-bikes and Andrés was our guide. It was so much fun, totally recommended for all levels! He showed us a sequoias forest, beautiful viewpoints, we did geocaching, went to an old mine, and even to a small cave. Andres loves nature and helps you appreciate every detail. For sure we'll do something else with him, he even recommended a great place for dinner, and reserved a spot for us. Thanks for all! 10/10
