KULeBIKE – discovering the countryside on an electric bike

Maribor, the capital of Styria and the second largest city in Slovenia is proud of its Old Vine, which is supposed to be the oldest in the world. With its impressive age of 440 years old vine still produces grapes, telling in its own way the story of the city and the whole region. The most beautiful way to visit this wine-making region is perhaps by using a KULeBIKE. Renting an electric bike is an excellent way to discover the hospitable Styria countryside full of gourmet delights. An unforgettable experience is guaranteed! Slaloming between the hills on the outskirts of Maribor you will learn why the wine-growing conditions in this area are among the best in the world.

KULeBIKE lets you discover the countryside in a totally different way providing you with a unique combination of cuisine, ecology, culture, and sport. Electric bikes enhance experience and are an excellent means of transportation for various groups. They help you reduce the effort, increase the distance you cover, make you move faster, bring you closer to the nature, and are especially useful for those travellers who are not athletically inclined or in good condition. But on the other hand, you can also set off to Slovenske gorice hills on a regular bike, as the people of Maribor combine various sports with various experiences.

During your active getaway you can stay at one of our partner accommodations where you get your bicycle delivered to you on a given day. Culinary treats and other pampering is ensured at tourist farms, as well as restaurants and vine cellars. The range of natural and cultural landmarks is practically endless, depending only on your curiosity and your strength to push the pedals. The following packages are available: KULeBIKE day, two-day, and weekend. Upon your reservation, your friendly hosts will not forget to include a goodies to go gift basket.

The Drava wine region, which includes Slovenske gorice, is the largest in Slovenia. It is known as one of the best wine-making locations in the world. The conditions for producing excellent wine by local vintners are superb. Sweet wines and sparkling wines are especially appreciated. In addition to the quality of wine, a visit to Maribor and its surroundings is marked by the beauty of the region and the warm atmosphere among the people who generously offer you a glass of wine to taste. Despite the fact that travellers can use a route map and a special smartphone app guide to the region, visitors never know what the end of the day shall bring. Perhaps they will end up at a tourist farm, maybe in a vintner`s wine cellar, playing football with children or a hand of cards with local residents, or having conversation with the curious village women. The most important thing is that the only goal of this type of travelling is to take it as slowly as possible.
