Breathtaking Balkans

THE WORD 'BALKAN' COMES FROM TURKISH, MEANING "CHAIN OF WOODED MOUNTAINS." HAD THE ANCIENT TURKS RIDDEN MOUNTAIN BIKES, THEY MIGHT HAVE COME UP WITH ANOTHER WORD FOR "WOODED MOUNTAINS WITH KILLER MOUNTAIN BIKING."

8 Days Mod-Advanced

The Balkan countries of Slovenia and Croatia are just that sort of place, with the Slovenian Alps and Istrian mountains of Croatia providing the spectacular backdrop for this adventure.

Forested singletrack meets old-world-charm on this ride through history in one of the most fascinating areas of Europe. The Balkans were long a crossroads for cultures from all over Europe and Asia - now they're a crossroads for travellers looking for something beyond the typical European experience.

Since the end of the Balkan war in the 90s, Slovenia and Croatia have been two of the hottest travel destinations in Europe, and it's easy to see why: Slovenia is an outdoor lover's paradise, with beautifully preserved wilderness and stunning mountain peaks as far as the eye can see, while Croatia's coastline is quickly becoming a playground for the world's gliteratti and Istria's mountains are home to olive groves, vineyards, charming medieval towns and beautiful mountain bike trails.
