Rateče and Mojstrana
One of the most beautiful Slovenian biking trails leads you from the village of Rateče, through Kranjska Gora, past Gozd Martuljek, and all the way to Mojstrana. The trail is very picturesque, as it partly runs on abandoned railway tracks, across many bridges, and is entirely separated from motor traffic. It has no steep climbs, it has snack bars and beautiful rest stops, hence making it also suitable for children.
