Soca Valley is the emerald paradise full of hidden stories, mystic locations and historical landmarks.
If you would like to explore as many stunning places of Soca valley as possible while being here, an HT mountain bike or an E-bike tour is the right choice.
Faster, longer, easier to uncovering the secrets of Soca Valley!
It doesn’t matter if you are an experienced biker, who spends every day on your bike or bike from time to time. Exploring the Soca valley with a hardtail mountain bike or an E-bike is a convenient way of uncovering the most beautiful gifts the Valley has to offer. Reach interesting destinations, visit the hidden wonders and experience Soča valley as a local. We recommend the guided E-bike tour which offers a visit to the most charming places of the Valley, which are not known to everyone. With an E-bike you can visit more secret places at a quicker pace.
Guided bike tours – Explore Bovec and its surroundings
As mentioned, you can choose among two different tours. One is a bike tour with a regular hardtail mountain bike and on the other, we uncover landmarks with a mountain E-bike. Both tours explore Bovec and its surroundings, the only difference is that an E-bike tour is an extended version of a MTB tour, since it’s easier to conquer longer distances. The mountain bike tour with regular bikes is about 32 km long and the E-bike tour covers cca. 47 km in distance.
The trip takes us from our agency through Bovec. We will discover the character of Bovec town and cycle in the direction of Boka waterfall. Crossing the bridge over the Soca river, we will continue our journey on the left bank of the Soca river towards Trenta valley. The well-maintained gravel road will lead us to the magical Lepena valley. On our journey, we will witness and cross a few suspension wooden bridges offering unique shortcuts across the Soca river. We will round our biking adventure in the direction of “Bovec Matterhorn” – Svinjak mountain, which will, with his majesty, guide us towards Bovec to our office in the city centre.
The tours are individually adapted in length and duration by the guide.
How difficult are our guided mountain bike tours?
Our experienced local guides modify every guided tour based on the individual abilities, wishes and physical condition of the group. As well as the timing, also the duration and the length of the trip can be adjusted accordingly to the above-mentioned factors. The mountain bike tour with regular hardtail mountain bikes requires slight more physical endurance than E-bike tours since with E-bikes you can adjust the amount of help based on your needs. In both cases, we make an individual group plan in the tour briefing before we start our biking adventure and we make a proper plan based on your needs and abilities.
Minimum participants and group dynamics?
- The minimum number of guests: 2,
- maximum number of guests per guide: 6.
If you are alone, don’t worry, we will join you in a group. Joining a trip as a couple – it’s more likely you will join a small team of biking adventurers. A family or a group of friends? You might also have a guide for yourself. If you are in doubt or worried, how would you fit in, contact us without hesitation and we will customize your trip in a way that everyone will step off our bikes pleased.
Guided bike tours in Soca Valley – Program
We meet in the SportMIX agency where you will be warmly greeted by our office staff. At the front desk, you will be asked to sign a waiver form and you will be acquainted with your guide. The guide will give you all of the necessary equipment. Before the start of your bike tour, the guide will provide all the necessary instructions and information and answer any questions you may have. On the tour briefing, you will, together with the guide, go through the main locations on the map. He will also provide instructions for a safe ride.
When you will return from your guided biking tour, we will meet back in our office in Bovec city centre. In the office, we will arrange the necessities for sending you the pictures of your trip and the leftover formalities. We will then exchange farewells until next time.
What about our youngest?
Guided mountain bike trips are suitable also for our youngest. Although there are certain limitations, that refer to bike sizes. The smallest E-bikes are normally suitable for people up to the height of 150 cm, so E-bike tours are not suitable for children below the mentioned height limit. On the other hand, the smallest hardtail mountain bikes we have in store are 24′ inch bikes, so also younger children attend the tour. If there are younger kids are taking part in the tour we make a “family tour” since the tour has to be adjusted to our youngest riders, and we don’t combine other guests with the mentioned tour.
Who can’t attend our guided bike tours?
- Pregnant women,
- people shorter than 150cm (for E-bike tours),
- people with back problems and other psychophysical injuries or mobility impairments,
- people who are overweight,
- people under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
