HIGHLIGHTS

Slovenia is a wonderful region offering many alternative cycling routes, which are nestled in the Alps, immersed amongst pleasant hills and embedded amongst beautiful lakes.  Slovenia has been part of the European Union since 2004 and has an interesting mix of Austro/Hungarian and Italian cultures that render it a truly fascinating, cultural country.

Mountains and alpine lakes will lead us to the wondrous medieval city of Lubjana: it’s not just about the riding, we’ll have plenty of time to explore the locations and what’s more enjoy the local food and wine!

MORE ABOUT THE TERRAIN

We have selected some of the best routes offering a mix of all terrains, but the terrain will be mainly hilly with some 6-8 km climbs, but also a lot of flat-undulating sections.

The start from Trieste is perfect as it mostly flat, then route become hilly with some climbing when we cross the Alps and towards the end of the tour approaching Ljubljana.

The climbs are never hard as the gradient is always around 6-8% and when steeper, generally for short distances.

The roads are well-paved and safe, with drivers showing incredible respect for cyclists!
