WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE SINGLE TRAIL HEAVEN PACKAGE?
The alps, green hills and the Adriatic, different climates, different soil and a range of different singletrack. All within a week and all within a hundred kilometers. This is unique to Slovenia. The Single Trail Package brings together the most beautiful trails in this part of the world, as varied as the country itself. From flowing singletrack, running through high alpine country like something from the Sound of Music, to stepped switchbacks leading to olive groves, vineyards and ending at the Adriatic sea. The in-between is filled with a few cult trails around Ljubljana, the nation’s capital, and a classic above the town of Škofja Loka that ends in the middle of a medieval town square. If you are looking for a colorful bike travel experience that will challenge your entire technical arsenal and make you a better rider in the process, then Single Trail Heaven is just what you need!
IS THE SELECTION OF TRAILS SUITABLE FOR ME?
All the climbs have an intermediate degree of difficulty, so we recommend class 3 fitness, meaning that you are able to cycle uphill for a maximum of 3 hours at a moderate pace. Daily climbing does not exceed a thousand vertical meters and climbs can be divided into several smaller sections as need be.
The degree of difficulty of the descents varies and can be adapted to the group as the majority of the peaks we conquer have a number of descent options. At least an intermediate level of descending skills is required, at times also some more technical skills to negotiate short technical sections. These are, however, only a few details in the big picture and can be used as an incentive to learn new skills or just left for another time. There’s no shame in walking a few tough sections.
