This 4 night cycling break leads you along a wonderfully scenic route from beautiful Lake Bled, through pristine alpine scenery and medieval villages to Slovenia’s lively and bustling capital.
Lake Bled, with its picturesque island church and serene alpine surroundings is a lovely starting point for your Slovenian cycling break. A circumnavigation of the lake following the meandering footpath is of course a must but whether you also invest in the challenging hike up to the lookout point at the western end of the lake, from where most pictures of the lake and island church are taken from, is up to you.
Enjoying the view at Lake Bled
The next morning you ride through the peaceful grandeur of the Bohinj valley marvelling at the towering peaks of the Triglav National Park as you descend to the pretty village of Ribčev Laz. If you have the energy you can extend the ride a little and cycle around Lake Bohinj to the Savica Waterfall. Either way, we recommend sampling the local honey brandy in the evening
The next morning the idyllic alpine village of Bohinjska Bistrica is a nice place to stop for a coffee before taking on the winding climb up to the Jelovica plateau. If you don’t fancy this challenge then you can pre-book a transfer to whisk you and your bike to the top in no time at all. You then follow a meandering mountain road as it gently descends along a pretty valley to the gorgeous medieval town of Škofja Loka. An evening stroll around this bustling and atmospheric little place is always a delight.
Your final ride leads you further along the valley and into Ljubljana. The rest of day and evening are yours to enjoy the many sights, sounds and tastes of the vibrant and exciting Slovenian capital.
