AROUND TRIGLAV NATIONAL PARK • cycling tour
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.
