Bicycling in Bovec area

Hello!

We are planning to visit Bovec area for kayaking activities, but will have some day free. Is it possible and worthwhile to rent a MTB bicycle to ride around? Are there any recommended tracks for bicycling?

Thanks for yor response :)

You can go to Mangart mountain by bicycle. I am sure in Bovec tourist office they will be able to give you some information. And also at the place where you will rent bikes.

Here is every year cycling tour to Mangart:

www.kolesarski-vzpon-na-mangart.si/core.php

and you can see this year is on 22nd of August.

The site is not in English but I am sure you will understand basic info which is provided there. And a lot o of pictures.

Hi kristsp

Look on this site:

slovenia.info/en/…

More specific about tracks in Bovec area you will find in site:

http://www.slovenia.info/

There you need to write in searcher "Bovec cycling" and there will be 16 possible tracks for cycling in Bovec area. Every track also have description about track, how long is track, difficult of track,..

For sure there are also some other tracks like track from Bovec to Kobarid, or Bovec to Tolmin. And then from Kobarid or Tolmin to mountaines and hills around.

You can see a detailed description of 10 popular biking trails in Bovec and surrounding on:

Also once you are in town, visit a tourist office (TIC) where you can obtain a cycling/mtb guide of Bovec for free.

Thanks for information and links!

I am, positively impressed, back from trip to Bovec. In my free day I rented good quality MTB bicycle (15 EUR a day) and made half-day bicycle trip. From our campsite in Vodenca I made quite demanding ascent through Bovec to Kanin cable car station B, then Pulžna, Log Čezsočki, Čezsoča, Jablenca and back to campsite across wooden bridges in Soča and Koritnica confluence area.

Bovec area map, available in Tourist Information Center (EUR 7.60), is indispensable. Tracks and trails (and there are many) are numbered and clearly marked on the map and also in the scene. For hard core MTB and downhill enthusiasts there are MTB trails in Kanin area, but certain level of skill and previous inspection of trails is recommended. I am looking forward to visit Bovec again to do some more bicycling.

kristsp,

Thanks so much for your great report. I've scheduled a couple days of guided MTBing with outdoor freaks in Karnjska Gora this October. I can't wait. Slovenia sounds incredible. Thanks again for your posting.
