The Alpine heaven bike tour starts from your accommodation, from where we are going to be shuttled towards the Alps. Our destination is Velika Planina. The plateau mountain Velika Planina is located in the heart of Kamnik-Savinia Alps, about 45 min drive from Ljubljana. With its elevation of over 1600 msl offers amazing views on to the Alps on one side, to the rest of Slovenia on the other. Velika Planina is also home of a unique herdsmen’s settlement, which we are going to be passing by while cycling across the mountain.
Don’t worry… Our main ascent (about 1000 vertical meter) will be done with the assist of a cable car, so, we will be mostly enjoying descents. The tour can be tailed to suit almost all types of cyclist riding styles, fitness and skill levels. From Cross-Country (riding mostly gravel and paved roads, going down the mountain), to Enduro / Downhill (various options of red/black labeled single trails) style. In all cases, there will be about 300 vertical meters of climbing (+1000 vm by cable car) and 1200 vertical meters of descending. The total length of the route is between 20 and 35 km.
