Julian Alps Slovenian Cycle Overview

Serene Lake Bled is just one reason to visit north-west Slovenia. Also awaiting you are majestic mountain views and timeless valleys that are perfect for cycling…

  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel cycling, luggage transported
  • glorious mountain views
  • cycle through timeless valleys
  • well-located hotels, two with a pool
  • chance to visit Bled Castle and the Vintgar Gorge

Lake Bled and its eponymous castle deservedly adorn many a postcard here – they are unmissable in both senses of the word – but they are not the only reason to choose a cycling holiday in Slovenia’s north-west corner.

We can think of several more. First, the terrain isn’t overly demanding, yet the views of formidable limestone peaks – usually dusted with snow at the start and end of the season – are a near-constant companion. Second, there’s the sense of timelessness that pervades the valleys through which you cycle – think crystal-clear rivers and vivid green meadows dotted with traditional hayracks and brightly painted beehives. And, to top it all off, there’s the disarming friendliness of the people you meet.
