Discover Slovenia Green destinations between the Alps and the Adriatic in a sustainable way – by bike!
The exceptionally diverse and sustainability-oriented Bike Slovenia Green tour begins in Kranjska Gora, runs through the magical Radovna Valley and the Pokljuka forest plateau, before arriving at Slovenia’s two Alpine gems – lakes Bled and Bohinj. A relaxing cycling path along the emerald Soča River follows the magnificent views of one of the most picturesque European railways. The next stop is a land of hills overgrown with sunlit vineyards. Goriška Brda is known for its excellent wines and friendly locals. The cycling continues past the typical stone villages of the Karst. Afterwards, the path joins the well-maintained cycling trail of Parenzana, which runs along a former railway and leads all the way to Trieste and Poreč. End this seven-day biking adventure on a high note with a dive into the Adriatic Sea.
