DAY 1 - VELIKA PLANINA TRAIL 

From the first day, start to fully take advantage of your time to discover and explore Ljublijana – three days can go quicker than you think! You’ll be shuttled to the Velika planina cable car station leading you among the pleasant greenness of the mountain plateau. Velika planina known as the Big Pasture Plateau really is a natural beauty which merits a visit in its own right. It’s found in the heart of the Kamnik Alps with a dispersed high-elevation settlement of mostly herders’ dwellings. We move up to the mountain by cable car then faced with plenty of choices as to which route to pick for the decent. There’s one thing they all have in common – enjoyable single tracks in a splendid environment always making you want more.


DAY 2 - KRAVAVEC TRAIL 

During wintertime, Krvavec is a ski resort while during the summer months it transforms into an adventure park. Located just 30 km or so from Ljubljana makes it a natural choice for those looking for either a one-day or weekend adventure. What’s more, it can also offer you a full-blown sports experience. The resort can be accessed by cable-car.


DAY 3 - VOGEL TRAIL 

We’ve saved the best for last. Vogel is a ski resort that lies within the Triglav National Park. It’s located above the glacial Lake Bohinj, Slovenia’s largest lake. The wonderful view down over the lake and surrounding mountains is what makes this day spent at Vogel such a unique experience. You can get access to the Vogel resort via a cable car and chair-lift, a must for a proper gravity MTB biking day.
