Cycle southwards from the lakes and mountains of Slovenia to Italy’s beaches and lagoons. Your start point is the lakeside town of Bled, with its island church and cliff-top castle. From here, you’ll ride beneath the rocky peaks of the Triglav National Park, passing waterfalls, lakes, rivers and ravines. Continuing through the Brda wine region, expect a warm welcome in the ancient villages and historic inns.  

Pedalling into Italy, you’ll ride to peaceful lagoons, historic fishing huts and the palaces of Portogruaro before finishing on the sandy shores at Lido di Jesolo at the end of the week. Cycling mostly on quiet roads, you can choose shorter or longer routes on several days with the option of train and vehicle transfers to avoid the harder hills.
