Self-guided tours are becoming the most popular form of bicycle and hiking tourism. They cost less than guided tours but still maintain a level of support and convenience that allows you the flexibility to explore on your own, without sweating the logistics.
Enjoy the nature and cultural heritage of each chosen country, alone or with your family, but without a guide and heavy luggage. Your luggage will be transported by us to the next hotel, so you can enjoy the tour only with a light backpack. All hotels and transfers are organized and reserved in advance and we take care of everything for you. The perfect combination for those who want to explore the land by themselves, but in a safe and stress-free way.
Road book, maps & gps tracks are included in all self guided tours. We have invested significant time in content and even design of this books. Road books are including complete packages of information about destinations with some description of top natural or cultural atractions, general walking and biking advices, set of color maps with highlighted routes and detail easy to follow directions description of the trip in picture & text form.
Gps tracks are available for all tours and you can rent a GPS device from us (see Rental Prices bellow)
For all our bike trips we can provide on request bicycles to hire. The bikes and their equipment will be ready for you at the first hotel, where we make personal settings of the bikes as well. At the end of the trip please simply park your rented bike in the last hotel, we will take care of its return. Available are comfortable bikes for cycling tourists. Our high-quality bikes are best suited to the terrain of Alps and Adriatic coastline and have all equipment ( road computer, locker, set of keys, puncture repair kit, spare inner tube, pump, waterproof back/side pannier and handlebar bag – per couple/pair of bikes, per each bike.
Our city bikes are mostly used for one-day tours, but they can also be used for multi-day tours. They are especially recommended for cyclists who prefer a more upright posture on the bike. All of them have 9-speed gears, front suspension, gel seats, bike Led lights, bike kickstand and rain fenders. Models: SVR Discovery city bikes.
Most of our tours are taking place on flatter terrain, where e-bikes are not necessary. If you wish to rely solely on your legs, trekking bikes are the best choice for those tours, because they are fast on tarmac and dirt roads, while being ultimately comfortable. All of them have 21-speed gears, front suspension, gel seats, bike Led lights, bike kickstand and rain fenders. Our trekking bikes are equipped with flat pedals, if you would prefer SPD pedals or have your own, please let us know. Models: KTM Trekking bikes (woman and man model).
For our road cycling tours, we use also hybrid bikes that are both comfortable and fast. Endurance geometry allows for an average cyclist to enjoy longer stages without back pain and makes for a smooth ride on some of the rougher alpine roads. We recommend bringing your own pedals and saddle or let us know what kind you prefer in advance. Models: Bianchi Hybrid bikes (woman and man model).
Electric trekking bike
Electric bikes are perfect for exploring Slovenian countryside because they allow you to come over every steep ascent and make more distance with less fitness gain. As you pedal, the bike gives additional power relative to yours and makes cycling just as challenging as you want it to be. Perfect for enjoying the views and surrounding and not compromising some of the top sights just because they are remote.
All our e-bikes are high-performance with 250W motors and 4 levels of power. They are equipped with a 500Wh battery and a high-quality rear derailleur and disc brakes.
Our e-bikes are unisex, equally comfortable for men and women. Models: KTM Macina E-bikes.
Wearing a helmet is compulsory in Slovenia until the age of 18, but for your safety, we strongly recommend that you do not ride a bicycle without adequate head protection. If you do not have one of your own, it can be rented from us.
