Active MTB tours to the Pokljuka plateau

Active mountain biking tours to the Pokljuka mountain plateau start in Bled and lead west to more challenging slopes towards Zgornje Gorje, where a winding road to Pokljuka begins.

Then you will cycle through the Pokljuka forests, where the plain ends at Zatrnik, a former ski resort.

At Zatrnik you will go uphill and after overcoming steep slopes, you will start to cycle on a gently sloping path through the forest, that gradually starts to ascend again. You will go uphill for another 300 meters of difference in altitude. Then the road descends to the crossing at Mrzli Studenec. A six-hour route requires some fitness as you will overcome more challenging ascents.

The effort is worth it, as you will discover beautiful Grajska and Rečiška mountain pastures with shepherd’s cottages scattered over the mountain plateau. The 20 kilometers long Pokljuka plateau at an average height of 1300 meters is covered with gigantic spruce forests, so it also offers many MTB trails in the shade.

The Pokljuka mountain plateau is a very popular destination for cycling in the countryside, as it offers more than 80 kilometers of forest paths. That is why beginner and experienced cyclists can find the route that suits them best. Mountain biking tours to the Pokljuka plateau offer an unforgettable experience as you will be accompanied by magnificent views of the Julian Alps and the highest peaks. The MTB trails also run along historical paths that were built between World War I and World War II.
