Gaze into the distance
Slovenia also has some picturesque long-distance trails. In the north, you can enter Slovenia on the international trail along the River Drava, and the lovers of Mediterranean trails can enter the country on the famous Parenzana Trail along the Slovenian coast. In any case, also take a ride through the Alpine landscape and along the River Mura.
The Drava Biking Trail
The Drava Biking Trail is a part of an international trail that begins at the source of the River Drava in Italy. In Slovenia, the River Drava will be by your side as you enjoy biking pleasures and challenges through the Libeliče or Vič border crossings to Maribor or even further, to Ptuj and Ormož – the total length is 129 km.
The difficulty level of the trail is medium, and it mostly runs on local asphalt roads. It is suitable for recreational cycling with trekking bikes.
Koper – Izola – Piran – Portorož – Sečovlje Salt Pans
The well-known Porečanka (Parenzana) trail will take you along the short, yet diverse and dynamic Slovenian coast. It runs along the former narrow gauge railway line between Trieste (Italy) and Poreč (Croatia) and is suitable for biking and walking. It is ideal for a family trip or for spending free time on holidays actively.
One of the most beautiful Slovenian biking trails leads you from 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.
Trail along the River Mura
Experts consider the biking trail along the River Mura to be one of the most beautiful riverside biking trails in the area of the Alps. Due to its gentle characteristics (it only goes slightly uphill and it passes many refreshment stops), it is a biking trail that provides the best possible enjoyment. It starts in the Hohe Tauern National Park and it follows the River Mura past Graz, to the wine-growing region of Slovenia and its thermal waters.
Special care is always taken of bikers at selected Slovenian hotels, hostels, and tourist farms.
