The Slovene world of cycling needs no introduction. Besides hiking and skiing, all forms of cycling rank high on the scale of national pastimes.

This unique self-guided holiday experience gives you more than a taste of this tradition by taking you south to the sunlit Adriatic coast. It’s where you’ll be able to enjoy exciting cycling routes of three neighboring countries: Italy, Slovenia and Croatia.

Due to the prevailing Mediterranean climate, this wonderful tour is available from early spring to late autumn. Summer of course offers that particularly pleasant option of cooling off in the sea, but every season has its own perks and comes highly recommended to all who enjoy this fun sport.

Starting off in Italy, the route will then take you along the Slovenian coast through its picturesque towns, before entering Croatian Istria where the combination of tranquil rustic countryside interwinds with its buzzing touristy coastline, which will certainly give you plenty to write home about. You will be cycling down well-maintained roads with light traffic, often switching to macadam trails and bicycle lanes.

The first three days are spent traversing down the famous Parenzana cycling path, which leads along the trail of a former railway from Trieste to Poreč. Although the elevation varies slightly, the overall route promises easy-peasy cycling that everyone can enjoy. You’ll be zipping through tunnels and over bridges, dashing past scenic landscapes, stopping off at amazing panoramic spots, and visiting lovely places where the food is tasty, people-friendly and options for sightseeing detours available.

The fact that your holiday is self-guided brings nothing but fantastic perks to the table. Our carefully assembled itinerary allows for enough time to hit the road at your own pace. Don’t worry about missing out on anything. The route is a dream to navigate and your comfy accommodation easy to find.

Our team will supply you with every piece of information you need to make your adventure hassle-free. In the event that you will ever need some additional help, we are at constant standby to assist in any way we can. The trip may be self-guided, but backup is self-explanatory.

Each day of this magnificent cycling holiday brings you to another incredible destination. With the fresh, seaside air in your face, the sun pampering you from above, and your soul enriched with the natural and cultural heritage you encounter along the way.
