Day 1: Arrival in Slovenia
Day 2: Kamnik – Luče and the River Savinja
Your holidays begin with a bicycle-friendly ascent to the mountain saddle that connects two mountain valleys. Next comes a pleasurable descent along peaceful local roads to the mountain village of Luče that is hidden between the mountains and the River Savinja, one of Slovenia’s cleanest rivers.
Route detail: ca. 30 km, + 650 m / – 520m. Private transfer to shorten the route available.
Day 3: Luče – Logar Valley landscape park
Many consider the Logar Valley to be one of the most beautiful Alpine valleys in Europe. A picturesque road takes us to our destination passing several natural attractions including Igla, which means needle in Slovenian and is a 40m tall, imposing solitary peak, separated from the surrounding rock by only a narrow crack. Those looking for the perfect spot to take a picture can extend the tour to Robanov kot, the first of the three valleys in the landscape park. We will conclude this lovely day of cycling with a visit to the heart of the valley, which comes to an end at the majestic Rinka waterfall.
Route detail: ca. 28 km, easy ascent
Day 4: Logar Valley – a quick jump into Austria – Jezersko
What comes next is the most challenging, but also the most picturesque section of the tour. The ascent to the two mountain saddles can be shortened by using additional transport. After taking in the view, you will go an enjoyable descent along a peaceful mountain road back down to your accommodation into the valley of Jezersko.
Route detail: 35 km, 2 mountain passes: +250 and +350 m. Private transfer to shorten the route available.
Day 5: Jezersko
This is a day mainly intended for you to have a rest or discover the glacial valley of Jezersko by foot or by bicycle. Get to know the heritage and traditions of the friendly locals on one of the organised trips or simply relax by the lake and take in the view of the Kamnik–Savinja Alps that rise up in the background.
Day 6: Jezersko – Preddvor – Bled
Descend along the narrow gorge of the River Kokra, next enjoy a break alongside Lake Črnava, and then continue in the direction of the Julian Alps and the Triglav National Park. The stunningly beautiful glacial lake, the church built on the tiny island in the middle of the lake and the medieval castle rising up on a 100m cliff overlooking the lake are the main reasons that many consider Bled to be one of the most beautiful and exceptional Alpine resorts in Europe.
Route detail: ca. 55 km, first 20 km descent for -410 m, then flat terrain till Bled
Day 7: Bled – Ljubljana
The cycling connection to the capital uncovers a completely new perspective of Slovenia. The green fields and lowlands across which wind languid rivers. Ljubljana is one the youngest and liveliest of the European capitals. A city of baroque and art nouveau influences and a medieval old town centre with many bridges that span the River Ljubljanica. An excellent destination to conclude your holidays.
Route detail: 55 km, flat terrain & descent
