Conquering Slovenia’s highest mountain pass, Vršič Pass, becomes a rewarding feat with awe-inspiring vistas that surpass every cyclist’s imagination.

Discover the enchanting town of Bovec and take on the exhilarating ascent to Mangart, Slovenia’s highest asphalt road, where breathtaking views of the Julian Alps unfold before your eyes. This adventurous ride is contrasted by a serene journey through Goriška Brda, renowned for its wines, where ascending offers glimpses of the Adriatic Sea.

Continuing into Italy’s tranquil Friuli region, you’ll descend from the Karst Plateau, passing through charming villages and cycling along the captivating Istrian coastline until you reach Piran. As you ascend from Buje, the historic heart of Croatia unveils itself, culminating in a leisurely coastal ride through Poreč and Rovinj.
