Trans Slovenia 02
Outstanding tourist sights and remote MTB trails – the Trans Slovenia 02 mountain bike tour provides a perfect mix of both. Join us and discover divine Alpine lakes, green mountain pastures, authentic villages, and the sunny Adriatic coast in the best way – on a mountain bike! A week full of exceptional riding is guaranteed.
The mountain bike adventure starts in Arnoldstein, a small town just across the Austrian border. First, you pass by the triple border, a point where the territories of Austria, Italy, and Slovenia meet. The trail then takes you to the Alpine resort of Kranjska Gora and further on along the beautiful Radovna Valley. After exploring the picture-perfect Lake Bled, epic mountain biking continues across the densely forested Pokljuka Plateau all the way to Bohinj, another Alpine pearl.
Two days of mountain biking through unspoiled forests and secluded villages in the hills above Škofja Loka are marked by two UNESCO heritage sites, i.e. the Franja Partisan Hospital and the former mercury mine in Idrija. In between lies the town of Cerkno, which is well-known as an excellent mountain biking destination.
In the second part of the Slovenia cycling holidays, the trail crosses three different wine regions – the windy Vipava Valley, the mysterious Karst region, and the Slovenian Istria. Distinct climate and terrain offer plenty of distinct wine flavors. Before relaxing at the tour finish line in Piran, you can also visit the typical Karst town of Štanjel, the UNESCO-listed Škocjan Caves, and the Sečovlje Salina Landscape Park.
This Trans Slovenia bike tour presents an alternative for starting the 2000 km long Trans Dinarica tour.
