Crystal clear waters, remains of virgin forests, rocky summits, endemic animals, diverse cultural heritage, friendly people, and delicious local cheeses… Around Triglav National Park is one of the most beautiful Slovenia cycling routes and rejuvenates both our body and mind.

Triglav National Park is one of the oldest parks in Europe that lies in the heart of the Julian Alps, in the north-west part of Slovenia. With over 840 square kilometers, the park is the largest protected area in the country. It was named after the highest Slovenian mountain, Mt.Triglav (2,864 m).

In this part of the world, nature is at its richest and most beautiful, as people continue to live in perfect harmony with their natural environment. Organic farming and sustainable livestock practices are a sound basis for the production of genuine homemade food. With its diverse climate and landscape, the area is also home to around 7,000 plant and animal species, from tiny insects and freshwater fish to majestic red deer and a proud golden eagle.

The Around Triglav National Park cycling tour starts with a transfer from Ljubljana to Bohinj. An exciting cycling route then leads towards the Pokljuka plateau, which overlooks Lake Bohinj and its more famous counterpart, Lake Bled.

Cycling continues from Bled through the serene Radovna Valley, the Alpine village of Kranjska Gora, and over one of the most alluring mountain passes, the Vršič pass. The next part of the tour includes panoramic cycling along the magnificent Soča Valley, best known for its emerald green Soča River. After visiting the charming towns of Bovec, Kobarid, and Tolmin, this Slovenian cycling route is brought to an end with a scenic train ride from Most na Soči back to the capital.

DAY 01

Arrival to the capital

Before the cycling tour officially begins, an overnight is organized in the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana. An introductory meeting is held to present the tour details.

We recommend you plan enough time to explore this vibrant city. As one of the smallest and greenest European capitals, Ljubljana is also one of the most livable cities. It’s never crowded – but also never boring. 50.000 university students give it its youthful appeal, and as an economic and cultural hub of Slovenia, it has a lot to offer to locals and visitors alike. Car traffic is restricted in the center, leaving the leafy banks of the Ljubljanica River free for pedestrians and cyclists.

DAY 02


DistanceDistance: 49 km
DistanceElevation: 1030 m

The day starts with a transfer from Ljubljana to Bohinj. The first cycling stage extends between two Slovenian gems, Lake Bohinj and Lake Bled. Many visitors to Slovenia say they have never seen a lake more beautiful than Bled – until they see Lake Bohinj, the largest natural lake in Slovenia.

From Bohinj, the route climbs to the Pokljuka Plateau, which rests at an altitude of 1,300 meters and serves as a starting point for many hikes. The forested plateau is dotted with shingle-covered wooden cottages that are typical for the Slovenian mountain pastures. Back in the old days, they were used as homes for shepherds or dairy production facilities. The highlight of the day is the Zajamniki mountain pasture in the central area of Pokljuka, known for its beautiful cottages and a perfect view over Lake Bohinj.

Reaching the final destination of the day, the famously beautiful Bled, it would be a pity not to visit the tiny island in the middle of the lake, walk to the impressive Bled Castle overlooking the town, or taste the famous Bled cream cake called “Kremšnita”.

DAY 03


DistanceDistance: 37 km
DistanceElevation: 580 m

On the second day of cruising around the Triglav National Park, a pleasant cycling road leads to one of the prettiest Alpine valleys in Slovenia, the Radovna Valley. The valley is well-known due to its unspoiled nature and a dramatic 1.6-kilometer-long Vintgar Gorge. Easy cycling is accompanied by views of mountain tops and cattle grazing on the surrounding meadows.

Next, the route passes by the village of Mojstrana, where a visit to the Slovenian Alpine Museum is highly recommended. The majestic Peričnik Waterfall is also just a few kilometers away. The route eventually reaches the final destination of the day – the mountain resort of Kranjska Gora, situated at the foot of the Julian Alps. Time permitting, a visit to the crystal clear Jasna Lake is a great idea. Another recommended option is visiting the Planica Nordic Center with the once-highest ski jumping hill in the world, or a stroll around the Zelenci Natural Reserve, a moorland famous for its distinctive colors and views.

DAY 04


DistanceDistance: 49 - 52 km
DistanceElevation: 1090 - 1199 m

From Kranjska Gora, the cycling continues across the Vršič mountain pass. The highest-positioned road pass in the eastern part of the Julian Alps with an altitude of 1,611 meters offers one of the best ascents in the region. For the most part, the tour avoids the main road and makes use of the gravel paths.

A thrilling descent leads to the Trenta Valley, one of the most remote, but also most appealing places in Slovenia. Trenta is the uppermost part of the famous Soča Valley, the first place in Slovenia to be proclaimed the European Destination of Excellence due to its sustainable tourism development. Flowing under the majestic peaks of the Julian Alps, the emerald green Soča is considered one of the most beautiful European rivers. In addition to a plethora of stunning natural sites, the valley is rich in WW1 heritage and war remnants are visible at every step.

The route follows the river to the town of Bovec, which is known as a paradise for outdoor activities. The rest of the day is dedicated to exploring this idyllic location or choosing from a wide variety of exciting outdoor activities provided by local agencies.

DAY 05


DistanceDistance: 38 - 42 km
DistanceElevation: 310 - 530 m

A large part of this picturesque cycling stage runs along the left bank of the Soča river, where keen canoeists and rafters take turns to tackle the rapids. The route passes the romantic Virje Waterfall, leading through the Bovec Valley. This site is also known as the magical world of Narnia, as it served as a setting for the Walt Disney production of “The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian”. There is another waterfall nearby, the majestic Boka, where hundreds of cubic meters of water flow deep into the valley.

After a mild ascent, the route passes by the delightful village of Drežnica, located directly below Mt. Krn. Drežnica is a center of parachute jumping and a starting point for many hikes. Only a few kilometers of a winding road remain before reaching the small town of Kobarid, best known for the 1917 WW1 Battle of Caporetto, where the Italian retreat was documented by Ernest Hemingway in his novel A Farewell to Arms. Today, Kobarid is a lively tourist hub.

Easy cycling continues along the river bank. The route passes small, laid-back villages before reaching the final destination of the day, the town of Tolmin. In its vicinity, one can find the lowest point of the Triglav National Park and one of the most popular tourist spots in the region, the Tolmin Gorges. For those with more energy to spare, a visit to this spectacular site is a must.

DAY 06

Tolmin – Most na Soči – Ljubljana: A PANORAMIC TRAIN RIDE

DistanceDistance: 6,7 km
DistanceElevation: 40 m

The cycling loop around the Triglav National Park is almost completed. Only a few kilometers of cycling along the Idrijca River are left to reach the train station in Most na Soči. Located on a rocky crest above the confluence of Soča and Idrijca, the town offers a splendid view over an emerald artificial lake.

It is then time for a scenic train ride to Ljubljana. The train operates on one of the most beautiful railways in the wider region. Built at the beginning of the 20th century, this historic railway used to connect Austria and Germany with the port of Trieste. It runs through no less than 28 tunnels, 5 galleries, and over 65 bridges.

Upon arrival back to Ljubljana, a transfer is organized to your accommodation.
