Mine tour by bicycles
Mountain biking in the heart of the Peca Mountain is a unique experience. The path
in the underground of the Mountain lies in the safe tunnels, interleaved with humps
and hollows of the former railway sleepers.
Tickets and equipment rental are avaliable in the INFO Center of Geopak Karavanke in Podzemlje
Pece, at Glančnik in Mežica. From here on, you will cycle with a guide to Igrčevo in Črna and then
into the mine. The trail ends at the Breg, just above Mežica
Underground cycling trails lead past the legendary resting place of King Matjaž. According to the
story, King Matjaž had to retreat with hundred surviving heroes into the cave in Peca Mountain.

everyone found justice and protection. Those were golden times in Koroška.
Trip lasts approximately 2.5 hours and is suitable for adults and children older than ten. Constant
temperature in the mine is about 10°C. Complete darkness and safety regulations in the underground
demand special equipment.
