A documentary that makes you think only green

You probably already know our green Slovenia. And even if you don't, you now have the opportunity to discover in an empirical way through a promotional documentary why Slovenia was the first country in the world to get the title of a green destination as a whole. You will learn that it is truly green. Literally, in the colours of its endless forests and meadows, and figuratively, in the effort of the locals for it to remain so.

The young Slovenian actor Aliash Tepina rolled up his sleeves, hopped on his bicycle and, in the company of a film crew, shot a half-hour documentary that takes you to all "corners" of our green story along the cycling paths of the Slovenia Green Gourmet Route. As seen by locals, destination representatives and tourism providers who have taken the sustainable route. Are you ready for a ride with us? Let's go!

"Our plan was to keep the film shorter, but after the shooting ended, it turned out that it really needs to be longer for the story to develop nicely. A sustainable rhythm needs more space than some standard promotional content."

Slovenia Green Gourmet Route – green cycling with flavour

The Slovenia Green Gourmet Route is an 11-days cycling journey around Slovenia. You will visit places and accommodation facilities that have attained the Slovenia Green certificate, eat top-quality local food without being troubled by your conscience as you’ll burn the calories consumed on the very next day. You will travel in an environmentally friendly way – by bicycle! And a little bit by train.

Park and explore the countryside in a sustainable way

If you decide to stay at a location or camping site for several days, you can give your motorhome some "rest" and choose a sustainable way of exploring the surroundings. Hop on a bicycle, take a trip to the city and explore its sights by public transportation, or perhaps it may be easier to rent an electric car and cruise the surrounding area.
