Sightseeing chairlift ride

We are used to ordinary experiences on mountain roads, but a mountain can also be seen from another angle. Every summer, one of the most beautiful runs of this mountain, in the very heart of Kopaonik, offers to its tourists a sightseeing ride on the chairlift “Pancicev Vrh”. This chairlift will take you to one of the highest peaks on this mountain and you will most certainly enjoy the view from an altitude of 2,017m.

Mountain biking (downhill trails)

For mountain biking fans, Kopaonik now has a Bike Park, first of this kind in Serbia.

The 5 kilometer long trails were built in accordance with the standards of European Union and Canada and are major challenges for all fans of mountain biking.

There are three trails of various difficulties, an easy one, a more difficult one and the most difficult one. The first trail is built especially for beginners and children, while the second and the third ones are suitable only for experienced bikers.

The trail width varies between 60cm and 120cm. In certain sections, there are dirt waves, bends, wooden bridges, jumps and obstacles.

See a video of a ride in the Park  here.

The Valley of Sports has a cycling track.
