Richiedi prenotazione

Lead mining under the mountain Peca began already in Roman times, the written records show, that from 1665 until the end of the previous century, when the mine was finally closed down, 900 km of tunnels were dug under the mountains of Koroška region. Today Tourism Mine and Museum Podzemlje Pece is one of the main attractions of Geopark Karavanke (member of UNESCO heritage) and the place for unique underground adventures.

People usually seek mountain biking enjoyment in the mountains, but what we have found is the passage through the mountains, along our abandoned and mysterious tunnels, in the mine no longer in use under the Peca mountain. Majority of tunnels were dug out in the solid rock. The ore and the waste material were transported from the mine by special cars along transportation tracks. Nowadays, this unique, more than five kilometres long cycling route runs through such bike tunnels.

What we offer is a guided cycling tour, more than 5 km long, along a path, illuminated by head- lamps warn on helmets, from one valley to another, where you can enjoy a safe, extraordinary and unforgettable adventure.

Summer, fall, winter, spring, rain, snow, it doesn’t matter our adventure begins at the Mining museum in Mežica, as miners once were, we are now seated in old mining train and driven in to the core of mountain Peca. After about 15 minutes the train stops and it’s time for new adventure. From 8th level to 12 level we need to overcome around 500 stairs to reach the water. Changing to neoprene boots and safety west we are ready to jump in to the water. Peddling for about an hour in the labyrinth of tunnels, in total silence and darkness gives us the feeling of being lost in time. Then we return through the maze of tunnels and chambers to the 8th level where the train awaits to take us back to the surface.  

The entire trip takes approx. 4 hours. The age limit is 12 years.
We recommend warm sports clothing .
It is necessary to pre-book the date.
