A tour for your body and soul

Cycling on the roads and paths among vineyards is a true treat. And not only because of the magnificent views, but also because of the enjoyable pit stops, where the locals will offer you the best treats from their wine cellars. Particularly in the autumn, when the vines are heavy with the weight of the ripe grapes, there is a special magic to a cycling adventure along the many wine routes around all three Slovenian wine-growing regions. During this time, you can step off your bike and join the traditional grape harvests and delight in the vineyards. We have listed a few of the most interesting cycling experiences along the wine routes, which are worth exploring.
