Bike Slovenia Green: Gourmet Route
The Bike Slovenia Green Gourmet Route (BSGGR) is the perfect itinerary for ever-evolving global travelers who demand everything: pleasure, adventure, and responsibility. Combining food, Slovenia Green-certified destinations, beautiful and varied landscapes, challenging and safe cycling, and “the world’s most sustainable country,” the BSGGR has something for everyone but never forgets its roots — the communities scattered across this magnificent Central European nation.
The route, which only visits green-certified destinations, crisscrosses nearly all of Slovenia, which was named the European Region of Gastronomy for 2021. Good food and wine are a part of the country’s culture and since 2020 Slovenia is on the map of Michelin awarded restaurants as well.
The Bike Slovenia Green Gourmet Route begins in Slovenia’s capital, Ljubljana, from there transfer is organized to the Soča Valley. Cyclists then pedal to Brda and Vipava Valley, roll into the Karst Region, and then take another train back to Ljubljana and furthermore towards east. After discovering the Sava River region, travelers go north to Ptuj, along the Drava River, to Maribor.
The BSGGR is a route that travels at human speed and makes nature, food, great wine, and green-certified destinations its main must-see activities. But, perhaps the most important aspect of the new itinerary is that it makes the people along the trail its most important asset.
