Slovenian Self-Guided Cycling Holidays

10-day cycling holidays in Slovenia, with 8 days of cycling from the Triglav National Park to wine growing Brda hills and further on to the mysterious Karst region, concluding the trip in the capital city of Slovenia – the lovely Ljubljana. Exploring on two wheels around the western part of Slovenia. Experiencing the breathtaking scenery of green alpine valleys, clear meandering rivers and majestic mountain peaks.

DAY 1

Arrival day

Upon arrival to Ljubljana Airport, you will be transferred to your accommodation in Bohinj, Triglav National Park. After check-in, an introductory briefing will be held at the accommodation, where you will receive all needed info and gear for your cycling adventure. Afternoon free to relax. Explore the town on foot, cycle around the lake or rent a canoe and explore on water. Read more

DAY 2

Bohinj

Today is your free day to explore Bohinj at your own pace. The lake is 2 kilometres wide and 6 kilometres in length, with the path that circles it 12,5 kilometres long. It lies in the centre of the Triglav National Park and occupies a dramatic position surrounded by a spectacular mountain ridge. We recommend you take a walk or a cycle around the lake (3 hours) for a nice and easy warm-up to your cycling tour. You can also cycle to Ukanc and hike to Savica Waterfall, take a cable car ride up to Mt. Vogel (1500 m) and enjoy the views of the lake from up above. Read more

DAY 3

Bohinj - Bled

This morning you cycle on a pleasant cycling lane between Lake Bohinj and Bohinjska Bistrica, passing small towns en route. You take a train from Bohinjska Bistrica to Lake Bled and upon arrival, cycle to your accommodation. After check-in, the day is free for sightseeing. This lovely alpine town is immersed in natural beauty. It is worth hiring a wooden boat or taking traditional Pletna boat ride to visit the Island. If the weather is good it is well worth hiking up to the viewpoint on Osojnica hill, where many of the classic images of Bled lake and castle are taken. Read more

DAY 4

Bled - Kranjska Gora

The first big cycle of the trip takes you from Bled through the Radovna Valley to the Slovenian ski resort town of Kranjska Gora, located near the border with Austria and Italy. The scenery continues to be dramatic as you leave behind Bled and cycle to the northern edge of the range. The majority of the route is uphill with around 340m ascent over the distance, so an early start is recommended. A scenic cycling route on a former railway line will take you from a small town of Mojstrana to Kranjska Gora, both at the foothills of some of the most majestic Slovenian mountains. Read more

Hotel Miklič, Kranjska Gora
DAY 5

Trenta Valley - Bovec

Today’s cycle begins with a private transfer across Vršič, at 1611m the highest mountain pass in Slovenia, to just past the small village of Trenta. Soča is regarded by many to be one of the most beautiful rivers in Europe. It flows through narrow gorges and over broad gravel beds. The river’s characteristic turquoise hue and the wild beauty of its rapids and ravines make it a wonderful place to explore. The cycle takes you along the river, right to the town of Bovec, the adventure capital of the Julian Alps. Read more

DAY 6

Bovec - Tolmin

After cycling along its banks, today is an opportunity to take in some white water rafting on a section of the Soča river (the best rafting in Slovenia!). At the drop-off point, your bikes will be waiting for you to continue the cycle via Kobarid to Tolmin, past small towns and villages on the undulating, flat or downhill route. You will have an option to stop at Kobarid for a short hike to the Kozjak Waterfall or a visit of the WWI Museum. Read more
