People usually seek mountain biking enjoyment in the mountains, but we found a passage through the mountains, along the abandoned and mysterious tunnels under Mt. Peca. What we offer is a more than 5-kilometre guided underground cycling tour, the route of which follows an illuminated path from one valley into another, for you to enjoy a safe and unforgettable adventure.
CYCLING ROUTE BENEATH THE MOUNTAIN
Already in Roman times, lead ore was dug under Mt. Peca. Approximately 800 km of tunnels were made from 1665 until the end of the 19th century, when digging lead ore was discontinued. Most of the tunnels were made in solid rock.
The ore and the waste material were transported from the mine on special cars along the transportation tracks. Today, this unique, more than five kilometres long cycling route runs through these tunnels.
MOUNTAIN BIKE ADVENTURE
The starting point for this adventure is the Mežica Mining Museum, where the guide will be waiting for you with the required equipment.
We will shuttle you to the mine entrance, which is two kilometres away.
The exit from the mine is in another valley, from where you will descend along the road to the Glančnik Mining Museum. Here, the rented equipment should be returned and the bikes can be washed.
In case of bad weather, transfers can be arranged.
500 METRES BENEATH THE SURFACE
The constant air temperature is around 10 °C. Special equipment is required because of the complete darkness in the underground and due to the miners' safety legislation. A helmet with a headlamp should be worn, which can be rented from the ticket office. Long trousers, warm long sleeves, an anorak and a pair of cycling gloves should be worn.
