Vipava Bike Team
We are local guides who love cycling around Vipava Valley, explore local anecdotes, and taste the best food and wine. We offer top-quality e-bikes and MTB bikes and guided or self-guided bike tours to discover hidden places of Vipava Valley.
We make sure all our guides are coming from the local environment and are responsible and committed to sustainable living. Our tour guides interpret and help travellers to understand local standards and values. They can indicate to them what appropriate behaviour is that does not go against local customs and expectations.
We strive for sustainable, responsible, and green tourism. We want to preserve our nature and culture for generations to come. That is the core of the reason to operate in small groups to lower the impact on the environment and the local community. We cycle only on existing paths, and we respect and support every individual winemaker, farmer, or any other local producer who preserves the family heritage and has high sustainability standards. Our guests recognize and support our values and therefore help us to maintain our destination healthy, clean, and green.

This bike and wine experience was one of the greatest highlights of our trip to Italy and Slovenia. Our guide, Jani, was welcoming, kind, and incredibly empathetic to the needs... read more of ALL our group members, especially the least skilled bikers (such as me!). We stopped to discover the history of various places on the way, expertly by Jani, and when the hills got a bit tough, he was an exceptionally helpful instructor regarding gear shifts and never let any of us fall too far behind. The tour can be customized. Jani can adjust the experience for any group from the least experienced to the most hardcore cycling enthusiasts. He really knows his way around and has so many interesting stories to tell about the local geographical and political history. Oh, and Jani also used a GoPro to take photos and videos of all of us at different points on the tour, and he shared all of these with us the same day. At the end of the biking, we stopped for an exceptional wine tasting at Petric Winery in Vipava during which we also tasted the most scrumptious, locally sourced meats and cheese, and enjoyed a rich conversation about winemaking among many other topics! What a joyful day and we hope to return soon!
We came with friends to Vipava to ride our bikes, and we rented bikes here and they were really good.
Jani was very warm and friendly, even if we... read more didn't plan a guided tour, Jani had very good advice and knows the area very well. He even recommended us several other places to visit during our stay in Slovenia.
A very pleasant meeting.
The wine tour was one of my best experiences in Slovenia so far 🙂 Jani and his family are amazing! We had a great time filled with conversations, walks, and... read more a lot of laughs. I'm really looking forward to come again in Ajdovščina!
We had the perfect tour with Jani- he tailored the cycling to our ability, which was great as we aren’t that fit! Jani himself was a great tour guide, he... read more told us lots about the local culture and traditions, he clearly cares a lot about his local area and is a genuinely nice guy. Finishing at a winery was a great end to the tour, we tasted 6 wines and a cognac and the vineyard owner was very informative. I would 100% recommend Wajdusna to anyone looking for a day out in the Vipava area
