Bike Slovenia Green

Bike Slovenia Green is a project that creates 1-day local cycling loops in Slovenian destinations. Only destinations that have obtained the Slovenia Green certificate are able to participate in this project. Destinations receive this certificate when they show sufficient efforts directed towards the sustainable development. For now, Bohinj, Cerkno, Brda, Vipava valley and Komen are included in Bike Slovenia Green.

 

GORIŠKA BRDA: THE WINE WONDER

The tour runs past the best Goriška Brda winemakers, symbolically connecting two parts of the route leading towards Colli with what is a unified area in geographical sense. A short leap into history and visits to some of the scenic spots are added every now and again. Most winegrowers manage their own open-air estates, where the bikers, besides tasting wines, can try some of the homemade delicacies. There is certainly no shortage of treats for lovers of fine wine and hospitality!

CERKNO: GREEN BY NATURE

In every aspect, Cerkno is the centre of the Cerkno region; it is a land of Pre-Alpine highlands, steep slopes and narrow valleys and gorges. Although it seems at a glance as lying “at the end of the world,” important transport routes once led through Cerkno, connecting the central part of Slovenia with the Friuli region in today’s Italy. The Neanderthal flute, which is the world’s oldest instrument (55,000 years old) was found along with other remains from the Ice Age era.

VIPAVA VALLEY: THE CASTLES

A light biking tour takes the participants on a trip through history and reveals stories told by the relatively well-preserved castles, with the road constantly running either among, above or beneath vineyards across a beautiful landscape offering magnificent views. The way that leads across the slopes of the Nanos mountain plateau and the Vipava hills towards the Karst provides many opportunities for visiting the growers of home-made produce or winemakers and also taste the wine.

KOMEN: A STORY OF STONE, TERAN AND PROSCIUTTO

The Karst is a territory where groundwater is predominant due to the permeability of the rocks, while the dissolving limestone shapes typical formations both on and below the surface. The geological phenomena on this rocky terrain are so distinctive that the term karst grew to be used to denote such geographical features appearing anywhere in world. In Slovenia, Karst denotes the part of south-west Slovenia stretching among the nearby Italian border, the Vipava valley and the hills of Brkini.

BOHINJ: HOW OUR ANCESTORS LIVED

Bohinj is mostly associated with the beautiful glacial lake, which is the largest permanent natural lake in Slovenia. Those more inclined to sports perceive the place as an excellent starting point for climbs to numerous peaks in the Julian Alps as well as mountain pastures and the Vogel Ski Resort. Beside the lake, Bohinj includes the area of three valleys (Upper and Lower Bohinj Valley and Nomenjska dolina Valley).

LJUBLJANA: PARKS PHOTO TOUR

The bike route leading along the attractions and parks in Ljubljana was designed for those Ljubljana visitors who would like to see slightly more than a set of usual sights in the city centre and who are in search for new photo images or just fond of the extraordinary atmosphere offered by parks. Besides parks, the undemanding route leads along plenty of historical and architectural points of interest. It takes two to three hours of easy cycling to get to know a completely different Ljubljana where one can take time to enjoy the entire day in the company of locals at their favourite scenic points and recreation trails.

LJUBLJANA: PST – PATH OF REMEMBRANCE AND COMRADESHIP

The PST cycling route runs around and through Ljubljana, leading through those urban areas of Ljubljana that are rarely visited by tourists, but it mostly gives the opportunity to truly appreciate the city’s greenery. On this relatively easy path with a few ascents, visitors are able to enjoy a different view of Ljubljana, which involves not only the spatial but also the historical perspective.

Soon after the outbreak of World War II, Ljubljana was occupied by Italy. In 1942 Italian Army fenced Ljubljana off with barbed wire to separate the city from the surrounding areas.  Today, this long walkway is called the Path of Remembrance and Comradeship (Slovenian acronym: PST).
