Are you a cycling enthusiast who likes to travel to fascinating places and visit as many interesting locations as possible while getting some serious cycling done? Then get ready to mount your bikes and explore the most prized regions of Slovenia.

Did we say Slovenia? We meant Slovenia’s breathtaking Alpine and coastal regions and Croatia’s incredible Istrian Peninsula. All in one extended, fantastically diverse, and soul-rewarding self-guided cycling holiday. Here’s the lowdown:

Every day promises something new, something thrilling for the senses. The road will lead you through the picturesque, ever-changing countryside, to numerous photo-op spots, and surreal natural and cultural highlights.

Your holiday will begin by unlocking the stunning secrets of the magical Julian Alps. The world-renowned Lake Bled and other gems of Triglav National Park will be graced by your presence. Scenic views will follow you through forests, towns and villages, over mountain passes, across wide-open fields and pastures, alongside pristine rivers and lakes, right down to the sunlit vineyards, the wind-swept Karst, and eventually the northern Adriatic.

You will follow the coastline down the famous Parenzana cycling path, a former railway route, which leads across the border into Croatia. The trail down memorizing Istria presents you with yet another completely different, Mediterranean-style environment. Your journey rounds up at the ancient town of Pula and its surroundings.

Stopping off at numerous locations along the way, you will get to do some sightseeing, taste the local cuisine, get the feel for each unique destination and its inhabitants. The second part will allow for some time for swimming in the sea too. The varied terrain will be navigated easily on your professional bikes and well-maintained roads and cycling trails with light traffic are suitable for different levels of fitness.

Our team and GPS navigation will help guide you to wherever you need to be. Our carefully assembled itinerary allows for plenty of time to hit the road at your own pace without missing out on anything. The route is very straightforward and your restful accommodation easy to find. In case of needing additional help, we are at your disposal to assist in any way we can.

Feel free to browse the itinerary to find out which destinations make this self-guided holiday so amazing.
