Mountain biking day tours from Kranjska Gora, Slovenia

Jure arranged for his fellow guide, Julio, to take us on a tour in the Kranjska Gora area. The only guidance we gave them was that we wanted a reasonably challenging, 3-5-hour ride with views. We were initially a little apprehensive when Jure suggested the Vrsic Pass but by all accounts, it's a stunning bucket list ride and we didn't want to pass up the opportunity. After outfitting us with some excellent equipment (I'm not an experienced mountain biker but my partner, who is, was very impressed with the bikes), Julio suggested we ride 6km up the pass, then follow some dirt trails back down. What a ride! Yes, the uphill part - we did 18 of the switchbacks - was hard, but do-able. Some of the downhill trails were tricky but we were able to explore parts of the valley that we'd surely have missed, had we tried to do a ride on our own. I particularly appreciated Julio's expertise and easy-going attitude; his company added to the whole experience. And the views... simply incredible! I highly recommend this guide will add that we also enjoyed a wonderful stay in Jure's Hotel Berghi. Thank you, Jure and Julio!
