DAY 2 - Cycling in Ljubljana's green Marshes

After breakfast, there will be a short presentation of our electric mountain bikes, followed by our first mini-tour, which will take place in the Ljubljana Marshes. The route is flat, easy, and perfect for an introduction to the week ahead. You are certain to be impressed by the green nature just a stone’s throw from the capital. In the afternoon, participants are free to enjoy the city and have a good night’s rest in Ljubljana.

DAY 3 - From Škofja Loka to Bohinj

After breakfast, we drive to Škofja Loka, a very pretty historic town near Ljubljana, where we start cycling through the Selška Valley and slowly ascend the wooded plateau of Jelovica. The tour begins to get an Alpine feel as we descend into the Bohinj Valley where we spend the night at this amazing glacial wonder.

DAY 4 - Cycling on Pokljuka Plateau

Since Bohinj is completely surrounded by high hills, the morning begins by hitching a ride with our support van to the Pokljuka Plateau. Cycling across Pokljuka is a dream. You will ride through meadows and pastures down well-maintained roads and stop off at authentic cheese shops.

Pokljuka is followed by a descent into the spectacular Radovna Valley in the very heart of the Triglav National Park, from where a flat panoramic drive to Kranjska Gora awaits. Yes, day 4 will be long, but extremely exciting and absolutely worth every droplet of sweat. The night is spent in the famous Alpine hub of Kranjska Gora.

DAY 5 - Around Kranjska Gora

Now it’s time for an easier tour around Kranjska Gora to rest our limbs and recharge our batteries. No van rides today, so we can afford to make a slightly later start. The surrounding terrain presents us with multiple levels of cycling difficulty.

To get the feel for Kranjska Gora’s pristine Alpine vibe, we will visit the incredibly green and jaw-droppingly beautiful Zelenci and make our way to the world-famous ski jumping center of Planica. The night will be spent at the same hotel in Kranjska Gora.

DAY 6 - Cycling over Vršič Pass to the Bovec area

On the sixth day, our van will take us over the Vršič Pass to cycle on the other side with much lighter traffic. The Bovec area offers endless possibilities, from serious mountain biking to hidden panoramic gravel roads in the heart of the Julian Alps.

By now we will be very familiar with each other and the participant’s capabilities, which will allow the guide to pick the most suitable route. After another dose of cycling, the van will take us to the rustic wine-growing region of Goriška Brda where we stay the night.

DAY 7 - Goriška Brda wine region

Waking up in Goriška Brda, you truly get to feel the immense difference in the landscape and climate. The Alps, which on a clear day can be seen in the distance, have been replaced by the Mediterranean climate. The last leg of our tour leads across romantic rolling hills and through gorgeous villages. To taste the fruits of all the grapevines you have seen while cycling, the day ends with a mandatory wine tasting.

Slovenia is a place of immense geographical diversity. Its main regions and a number of microclimates give the country a character unrivaled by any other in Europe. Exploring Slovenia’s natural and cultural treasures on a bike is a completely unique experience. When traveling by car is too fast and walking is too slow, cycling is definitely just right. You get to visit Slovenia’s incredible sights and watch its scenic countryside change before your eyes.

This 8-day Slovenia cycling holiday will take you from the capital Ljubljana, over the wooded Škofja Loka Hills towards the stunning Alpine valleys and open pastures, across a panoramic mountain pass and into the Mediterranean climate of the renowned winegrowing area of Goriška Brda. On every leg of your journey, whole new worlds open up, creating the illusion you have entered an entirely different country.

Just like the landscape, the route itself is very diverse. From flat asphalt roads and countryside lanes or gravel tracks, to relatively steep ascents and descents, which offer breath-taking views of your surroundings. The tour is comprised of the best cycling trails in Slovenia with numerous famous landmarks along the way. Tackling the terrain on your electric-assist mountain bikes guarantees everyone will get the most out of the experience, making it easier to adapt to an optimal riding pace.

Besides the guide, our tour will be accompanied by a van, which will take care of all logistic aspects, support and luggage transport. Any repairs can be taken care of on the spot. Our support van is also there in the event that for any reason participants can’t continue their journey or wish to cut it short.

Things to know

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
