Cycle through some of the most scenic parts of north-west Slovenia, enjoying a full week of magnificent scenery – expect a few inclines but there is an optional uplift if you want an easier ride. You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to scenic spots for a rest stops or picnic lunches, with the beautiful blue waters of Lake Bohinj and the ski resort of Kranjska Gora as just two of the highlights. Riding through deep forest and making gentle ascents, expect a permanent backdrop of Alpine mountains with the highest peaks dusted in snow.

You’ll ride from the pine forests and pastures of the Pokljuka high plateau to tiny villages nestling in the hills of the Bohinj Valley. Each authentic village you’ll visit gives a different insight to the region, from famous residents and a history of iron smelting, to stirring World War II stories. The lakeside village of Bled is a beautiful place to start and finish, and staying a bit longer here would be well worth it.
