If you are looking for a cycling trip that has the “back to basics” feeling then this tour is the perfect choice for you.

We have designed a tour for anyone who would like to learn the art of bikepacking and just take their bike and explore new places. On this guided trip we will teach you how to plan and prepare for a multi day cycling trip while we will be riding on some of the nicest roads and gravel trails Slovenia and the Julian Alps have to offer. Three days of riding, sleeping in mountain huts, spending time with likeminded cyclists and visiting world known areas are all included in this cycling trip that you shouldn’t miss.
