Czech Out Our EASTERN SLOVAKIA TOUR

The EASTERN SLOVAKIA TOUR is situated in the far east of Slovakia, the best accessibility is from Vienna or Bratislava airport. This location is characteristic for amazing mountain landscapes and stunning natural trails in wild & remote areas. Within the tour we’ll show you around:

Cyklostopy Stará Ľubovňa

Ranked among the TOP trail centers in Slovakia, Cyklostopy Stará Ľubovňa is characteristic for its’ playful flowtrails, technically more demanding & sometimes even rough enduro lines, but also for the original animal signage. The atmosphere of this place is complemented by a medieval castle and a nice open-air folk museum which serves for a good mid-day rest.

Branisko

Branisko is a place to go if you’re into enduro! A calm and quiet mountain range offers wild & demanding loamy trails, sometimes super steep, sometimes rooty, rocky and exposed. Get ready, here the riding gets tough! The well-known section named Carbon Killer speaks for itself. Add amazing views at famous Spiš Castle and picturesque Tatra mountains – what else can you ask for?

Slánské vrchy

A forgotten mountain range far in the east of the country could be easily tagged as the undiscovered enduro paradise. Vast beech forest filled with rocky ridges and suuuuper long trails. A group of local enthusiasts are pimping their area into a high-quality playground. Mainly natural mountain trails on steep slopes, raw, loamy and rocky = simply amazing!

NOTE
Each tour is a living thing and may be influenced by several factors (weather, size and interests of the group, current closures on trails or so on). Your guides are experts who continually evaluate these factors to deliver an outstanding experience for every single member of the group. Therefore the itinerary may be amended when necessary.

ACCOMMODATION
During the week we will typically use hospitality of 3 different guest houses. Our aim is to bring some business to local people so we’re always picking smaller guest houses owned by locals and we never take our guest to large uniform hotel complexes.
All of our accommodation is *** standard with a restaurant and cosy bar to spend the evening in.

Accommodation We Use is Always Equipped with These Facilities

Being single or odd?
Our holidays are priced per person based on two people sharing a room. We don’t charge a single person supplement, however we will aim to put two single people, of the same gender, into the same room. If you really don’t want this then we need to add an extra surcharge, please get in touch to ask about this. If you are traveling as an odd numbered group we will try to offer you the option of 3 to a room rather than sharing with a stranger. If we do that we will make sure there is a room large enough to make this comfortable!

Support of Our Van
We are always trying to use the van as little as possible. Our philosophy is to spend the most of each day out riding in nature and not to hassle with driving. Of course there are places or situations when using the van makes the daily program smoother and easier for everybody, but this will usually happen no more than 1-2 times a week.

ARRIVAL

  • Vienna International Airport is the best choice, most of the airline companies operate regular flights to this destination. There is also a possibility to land in Bratislava.
  • Arriving by car is definitely an option if you’re coming from closer destinations. Please get in touch to arrange details such as the meeting point and exact time with us.
  • From all over Europe you can get to Bratislava Main Station without a problem.
  • For the EASTERN SLOVAKIA TOUR we encourage our guests to plan the trip with arrival to Vienna no later than at noon on Sundays (or arrive one or two days early and spend some time in Vienna which has a lot to offer). This way we can handle the transfer to our first riding destination, setting up the bikes, accommodation and an initial warm-up ride on the day 1.

LOGISTICS

EASTERN SLOVAKIA TOUR will take you around several riding destinations (typically 3) with a few decent transfers (1 hour at most) during the week. Longer transfer from the airport and back (approx. 4 hours) is necessary. Usually we pick our clients up from the airport and drive them around the whole week in our comfortable van to drop them off in the airport when the show ends. Other means of arrival (car or train) are definitely doable and welcome.

BIKE RENTAL

Enjoy your MTB holidays to the fullest with one of our premium rental bikes! We offer a fleet of 25 premium bikes of these brands:

E-BIKES?

  • We design our tours for standard mountain bikes, but exceptions are possible. Does the e-bike help you to keep up with younger riders all week long? Or erase some medical limitation? Let us know your specific reasons for using the e-bike and we'll be happy to decide whether it is acceptable in our concept or not. We can also provide an e-bike rental.
