Jure & Martina Culiberg
We have turned our hobby into our job and, as qualified bike guides, are also responsible for the individual advice & professional bike competence in our hotel. We are happy to show you the most beautiful tours and trails of the three-border region Slovenia, Austria and Italy.
Mountain bike, tourism and everything around it – that’s us, Martina and Jure.
We are always on the go and looking for new things. If we are not in the hotel, then you will find us in the bike park. If we are not in the bike park, then we are out and about exploring new trails. And sometimes you can meet us at a mountain bike marathon abroad.
Our Ferienhaus Berghi has been focussing on mountain bikers since 2013.
We both started mountain biking before we met. Our beginnings were quite adventurous.
Jure: I bought my first mountain bike by Peugeot on a Thursday in 1996, and on Saturday, I was off to the Vršic Pass. This was my first mountain bike tour (on asphalt). My fitness level at the time was excellent and I managed to conquer the Vršic in just under four hours (I need a bit more than 50 minutes for the same ascent today :)). I ate like I had been on Mount Everest for the entire week after that.
Martina: I was on my first mountain bike tour with my new silver Giant and SPD pedals somewhere in Austria around the same time. I also had my first SPD-related accident on that tour. Today, I still have a scar on my elbow as a souvenir.
We travelled a lot when we both were still working in responsible and important jobs in the world of business. This offered us a comfortable way of living but none of us did really identify with their job – not even after 17 years of corporate career. Back then, we were out and about by mountain bike as tourists and visited many mountain bike hotels and centres. This is when we started to dream about our own mountain bike holiday accommodation. We found a suitable building in Kranjska Gora in 2013. We were both convinced that Kranjska Gora offers great potential for cycling sport and decided to go ahead with the purchase. As we both had been regulars in Kranjska Gora already, moving here was an easy decision. We have been managing the Kranjska Gora Bike Park with great pleasure since 2014 and are delighted with the increasing numbers of visitors.
We also like being out and about on road bikes and have many ideas for road bike tours around Kranjska Gora.
