A wonderful cycling holiday through Slovenia, from stunning Lake Bled in the Julian Alps to the pretty port of Piran on the Adriatic Coast. Slovenia may be a relatively small country but it packs a lot of history, culture and natural beauty within its borders and this cross-country cycling holiday is a great way to see some of its highlights.
Enjoy the picturesque setting of Lake Bled with its unique island church and alpine backdrop. Freewheel into the beautiful Bohinj valley, past tiny alpine villages before spending the night on the shores of beautiful and pristine Lake Bohinj. Climb to the Jelovica plateau and then recover with a cooling ride through a green forest and a night in the enchanting medieval town of Škofja Loka.
Predjama Castle near Postojna
Cycle to Ljubljana, Slovenia’s capital, and spend the night in this vibrant and laid back city before riding on across open marshland and nature reserves. Go underground in Postojna to marvel at the extensive caves and visit the once impenetrable Predjama Castle. Cycle to Lipica to admire the world-famous Lipizzaner horses and watch them in training.
As you near the Adriatic make a quick detour across the border for a gelato and a walk around the Italian port town of Trieste before riding on along the coast to your final stop, the medieval port of Piran.
This cycling holiday consists of mainly rolling or flat terrain however on three separate days you will encounter slightly more hilly sections.
