What to bring to the tour
This self-guided cycling holiday is a unique opportunity to discover the picturesque coast of the northern Adriatic Sea — From Italy to Slovenia and then Croatia. Cycling in this Mediterranean climate is available almost throughout the whole year. It is especially enjoyable in the early spring or late autumn when it becomes too cold to bike in Alpine Slovenia, while here there are no crowds and temperatures perfect. When the temperatures get higher in summer, the sea is always inviting for a swim, although the beaches are usually more crowded.
The cycling along the coast is mostly flat and leisurely, allowing you to enjoy the sights and attractions on the way more. The route starts in Italy and takes you along the relatively short but sweet Slovenian coast. After enjoying the scenery of the cute towns on the way, your path soon takes you over the border to Croatia.
The famous Parenzana cycling path along the former railway leads you from Trieste to Poreč. Switching between well-maintained cycling paths, gravel tracks, and roads with light traffic offers an easy and enjoyable ride. When you’re not cycling along with the sea breeze of the Istrian coast, you’ll be zooming through tunnels and over bridges between many rustic villages inside the peninsula. More down south, you’ll stop at Rovinj, one of the most romantic coastal towns in Europe. Jour journey will end in the ancient city of Pula, the cultural capital of Istria, where you’ll have an extra day to explore its surroundings.
This is a self-guided cycling holiday, meaning it’s designed for those that want that little bit of extra freedom and autonomy compared to guided holidays. We prepare your itinerary and the directions, but you are the one in charge of each day on this journey. Our full 24/7 support will be there whenever you need help on the way. The route for this holiday is not too hilly in the first place, but you’ll still be using electric bikes, making this tour suitable for everyone’s level of fitness.
