THE LOWDOWN: SLO­VAKIA

Mountain Biking UK - - SLOVAKIA -

Get­ting there: Wizz Air (www.wiz­zair.com) fly from Lon­don Lu­ton to Po­prad-Ta­try for as lit­tle as £34.98 re­turn.

Where to stay: We stayed at The Dragon’s Lair (www. drag­on­slair­jasna.co.uk), a chalet lo­cated be­tween Jasná ski re­sort and the town of Lip­tovsk Mikulá , in the north of Slo­vakia.

Find­ing the trails: Jasna Ad­ven­tures (www.jasna ad­ven­tures.co.uk) can or­gan­ise your hol­i­day and show you around. Mal­inô Brdo bike park (www. bikepark.sk) is well worth a visit, 1km out­side Ru omberok.

Bud­get­ing: De­spite be­ing in the eu­ro­zone, Slo­vakia is still a rel­a­tively cheap des­ti­na­tion. Food, beer and travel costs are all a good deal lower than in western Euro­pean re­sorts.

Other ac­tiv­i­ties: Lip­tovsk Mikulá o ers wake­board­ing, raft­ing, high ropes, cav­ing, a wa­ter park, to­bog­gan­ing and hik­ing to keep you en­ter­tained o the bike.
