Are you a traveler who likes to experience the country you’re in up close but still explore a lot in a week? Do you prefer to organize your own day while traveling but not take so much time doing all the needed research? If you resonate with both of these questions, then you’re gonna love our self-guided cycling holiday in Slovenia.

If walking is too slow and driving around with a car is not immersive enough, cycling is just the right compromise between the two. It allows you to breathe clean air like walking and be fast enough so you can see quite a lot in a week of turning the pedals. And of course, this fun physical activity also makes you healthier!

The self-guided aspect is also a key component of our tour. Guided tours are all about schedules, timetables, and other restrictions. But going on a self-guided cycling holiday allows you to explore Slovenia’s top attractions and beautiful landscapes at your own pace. And don’t worry, you don’t have to do any all-night research sessions about the places you’re going to visit. We take care of all that.

But you might be wondering, why Slovenia? 

Slovenia is perfect for such a holiday. It’s small in size, but vast in its diversity, making cycling the optimal speed at which to explore it. Because the country is also super safe and easy to find your way around, you don’t need to be an experienced adventurer to avoid the pitfalls of traveling without a local guide.

In just a week, you’ll discover diverse landscapes, cycling your way through the ever-changing countryside, from the mountains to the sea. You’ll start your journey at the famous Lake Bled, on the doorstep of the Julian Alps. From there, you’ll delve deeper into the surroundings of the Triglav National Park, exploring the scenic alpine valleys, mountain passes, and the mesmerizing emerald river of Soča Valley. The many cycling paths, gravel tracks, and asphalt roads will take you over pastures, forests, and villages, leading you south into the Mediterranean climate. The romantic roads through the sunny vineyards will take you over the Karst Plateau, from which you’ll descend and eventually arrive at the Adriatic Sea, just begging you to take a swim.

But since Slovenia is a hilly country, full of ups and downs, you would have to be extra fit to see it on a regular bike. That is why on this holiday, you will be using electric mountain bikes that can take on any terrain, at any incline. This means that the holiday is suitable for different levels of fitness. The roads and cycle paths in Slovenia are well-maintained, and the traffic is relatively low, especially on the ones you’ll be cycling on. You’ll have our team’s 24/7 support during the trip, remotely guiding you through the week and making you remember this journey for years to come.
