Active and healthy holidays
Take your children to a world that they have never seen before. You can bike on forest trails or on special biking trails. To spend an active and healthy holiday, choose between a mountainous or coastal environment, Pannonian plains or rolling hills. The choice is yours.
Lake Bled in the vicinity of Triglav National Park is an excellent starting point for all kinds of biking tours. Various roads and trails connecting the villages around Lake Bled are suitable for short biking trips, and the forest roads on the Jelovica, Pokljuka, and Mežakla Plateaus will impress even the most advanced mountain bikers. You can hire a bike and a guide at many agencies in Lake Bled.
More than 150 km of biking trails are suitable for beginners or experienced cyclists, for families, young people and for anyone who likes to bike in the green Alpine environment. If you want to experience your adrenaline pumping, visit a bike park in Kranjska Gora offering freestyle mountain biking options and an adrenaline-fuelled ride across tables, jumps, swings, and other obstacles.
