Description

Experience the unbelievably picturesque countryside of Bled and get a feel for Slovenia’s pristine natural heritage by going on a cycling holiday like no other. It takes you to the most panoramic parts of the country and gives you the chance to visit all of Bled’s main tourist attractions. The cycling routes are suitable for various levels of fitness and tackling the terrain by electric-assist mountain bikes will ensure everyone gets the very most of this incredible cycling holiday.

Bled is the symbol of Slovenian natural beauty. Its world-famous glacial lake and rich cultural heritage places this landmark right at the top of must-see destinations. The area in and around Bled also offers incredible cycling opportunities down less-known trails which come with amazing panoramic views of their own. Spending 3 days exploring this diverse region on electric-assist mountain bikes is a unique opportunity to explore this part of Slovenia up-close. Your guide will make sure the travelling pace is suitable for all participants and routes are chosen with everyone’s wellbeing in mind.

Every day of this active holiday is packed with sights to see and wonderful trails to ride on. You will get the chance to visit Bled’s renowned tourist attractions and do a great deal of cycling to boot. From an interesting and exciting tour down hidden cart tracks that circulate the town and end with an unforgeable view of the lake, to cycling across the wooded Pokljuka Plateau with its mountain pastures and peaceful meadows, and ascending up to Jelovica for some breath-taking panorama.

Small group

For solo travellers or travellers who wish to meet other like-minded souls, don’t want to stress about trip planning and would maybe like to enjoy some time on their own as well.

For guaranteed tour departures we have a minimum of 4 people.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is the pickup and which transfers are included?

The included pickup and drop-off at the end of the holiday in the price published on our website is in Ljubljana or Ljubljana airport. For any changes, please notify us upon booking. The included transfers are all the transfers between places and/or activities specified in the itinerary.

Where do I eat when the food is not included?

Both our back office team and our guides know where to go. We can give you recommendations or even pre-book some places for you. You can be adventurous and find places on your own. Either way, let us know if you would like any sort of help.

How fit do I need to be?

Cycling planned on our cycling holidays is easy to moderate - the terrain is not so difficult, there are no major ascents and the pace is meant to be gradual. The electric bikes provide enough extra power that you should be able to climb all the ascents easily. However, the route is adjustable and our guides will take you on a terrain most suitable to your skills and fitness level.

What should I wear? Do I have to bring anything with me?

It is important to dress for the season. Slovenia has all 4 seasons, so please check the weather forecast before the holiday regarding temperatures and rainfall. When you are close to the Alps, you can see all 4 seasons change in the same day, so your best bet is to always bring an extra layer and rain gear. Your guide will let you know each day what kind of weather you can expect for the next day and don’t worry - extra layers can always travel behind us in a support van.

I have food restrictions. Are there restaurants for me?

It really depends on the level of your restriction. Vegetarian options are fairly easy to find in Slovenia, but vegan dishes, on the other hand, are extremely hard to come by in rural areas of the country and in smaller towns. Please note that the places where we stop for lunch are often traditional and may have difficulties accommodating you outside of their standard menu. We suggest you keep this in mind.

Will I have some time to myself?

If you want to, sure! We are well aware that some people love to stay in groups while others prefer some more alone time on their trip. We wanted to give you the opportunity to do things your way. It is your holiday, after all! As long as you respect the group timings and locations designated by your guide, please feel free to customize your itinerary and create your own adventure!

What is the tourist tax that is not included in the price?

A tourist and promotion tax is a fee that every visitor has to pay for each overnight stay all over Slovenia. It consists of two parts: each municipality charges a tourist tax fee, which goes towards financing and maintenance of tourist facilities in the area, and the Slovenian Tourist Board charges a promotion tax, which is used to promote Slovenia. Depending on the municipality, the tax rates vary - from 1.5€ in some locations to 3.13€ in Ljubljana or Bled (per person, per night).
