All Levels


  • Peddle among the stunning mountainside of Slovenia.
  • Capture the thrills of winding tracks and energetic descents.
  • Benefit from having a mountain guide leading the way.


High up in the mountains in Upper Carniola lies the beautiful town of Kranjska Gora, very close to the borders of Austria and Italy.

It is located in the Julian Alps, where the winding runs slither among the mountains, up steep slopes and on flat terrain. This makes it the ideal place for mountain biking.

Join one of eight possible mountain biking tours and explore the lush mountainside of Slovenia. You’ll get everything a cyclist needs, from bike tools and pumps to water and a cleaning kit.

  • Paragliders is a 22-kilometre tour, with 800-meter gains, beginning in the town of Kranjska Gora and past the Eko camp. We’ll continue turning upwards onto a gravel road and pass a second ramp towards paragliders. Here a technically moderate descent begins before heading towards Srnjak Inn and return to Kranjska Gora.

  • Blek’s Mountain is a 26-kilometre tour, with 1,800-meter gains, that follows the same beginning past the camp and first and second ramp before turning for Blek’s Mountain. We’ll continue along the road before we begin our descent to Srednji Vrh.

  • Krnica Valley is a 15-kilometer tour, with 1,000-meter gains, which passes Lake Jasna and follows the road to Krnica before turning into the woods, then follows a trail down to Kranjska Gora.

  • Vršič is a 25-kilometer tour, with 1,000-meter gains, from Kranjska Gora towards Vršič with descents through a mule track and continuing along to Krnica.

  • Tamar is a 21-kilometer tour, wit gains of 450 meters, running along the cycle path towards Rateče and continuing through fields and meadows before an ascent that shadows a cross-country skiing trail.

  • Tromeja/Tripoint is a 23-kilometer tour, with 850-meter gains, that follows the camp before a turn towards the Tromeja/Tripoint Lodge and a nice descent towards Rateče.

  • Dovška Baba/The Dovje Broad is a 47-kilometer tour, with 1,600-meter gains, that follows the cycling track to Dovje and descends before returning to Kranjska Gora.

And finally, the Sava Dolinka River is a 15-kilometre tour, with 350-meter gains, which passes through woods and down the flank of the Sava River.

About the guide

Mountain bike, tourism and everything around it – that’s us. Both my wife Martina and I are always on the go and looking for new things. If we are not in the hotel, then you will find us in the bike park. If we are not in the bike park, then we are out and about exploring new trails. And sometimes you´ll run into us at a mountain bike marathon abroad! Berghi, our hotel, has been focusing on mountain bikers since 2013.

When we first met, we travelled a lot by mountain bike while still working in responsible and corporate jobs. Back then, we visited many mountain bike hotels and centres and started to dream about our own mountain bike holiday accommodation. We eventually found a suitable building in Kranjska Gora in 2013 and decided to go ahead with the purchase! We were both convinced that Kranjska Gora offers great potential for cycling.

We have also been managing the Kranjska Gora Bike Park with great pleasure since 2014 and are delighted by the increasing number of visitors every year. We also like to explore on road bikes and have many ideas for road bike tours in the area. Come join us!

What people are saying about this trip

September, 2019

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!
