Embark on an enchanting 15-day cycling experience across the magnificent landscapes of Slovenia, Italy, and Croatia. This journey is not just about the miles covered on a bike, it’s a voyage that immerses you in the historic charm of vibrant cities, the natural grandeur of verdant landscapes, and the unique cultures of these three captivating countries.

Your adventure starts in the dynamic cityscape of Slovenia’s capital, Ljubljana, providing a perfect blend of modern vibrancy and old-world charm. As you cycle through quaint hamlets and up rugged terrains, the picturesque Polhograjski Dolomiti will sweep you into a world of untouched beauty and serenity, serving as a perfect backdrop to set the pace for the voyage.

The journey will have you weaving through charming towns nestled in the mountains, like Škofja Loka and Železniki. Your path leads you to breathtaking views atop Soriška Planina, with each turn revealing another stunning vista. On reaching Bohinj, you’ll be greeted by an Alpine paradise, boasting crystal-clear waters and majestic peaks.

As you traverse from Bohinj to the iconic Bled, you’ll encounter peaceful hamlets, undulating landscapes, and historic landmarks. The journey further unfolds through Radovna Valley’s majestic scenery, filled with optional detours to cascading waterfalls and a serene stopover at Lake Jasna in Kranjska Gora.

The adventure intensifies with an exciting cross into Italy, where the wide-open spaces of Sella Nevea offer a panoramic feast of the Julian and Carnic Alps. The challenge of conquering Slovenia’s highest mountain pass, Vršič Pass, rewards with awe-inspiring vistas that are nothing short of a cyclist’s dream.

Discover Bovec, and conquer the thrilling ascent to Mangart, Slovenia’s highest asphalt road, providing views that capture the breathtaking beauty of the Julian Alps. This adventurous ride is contrasted by a serene journey through Goriška Brda, a region famed for its wines, where the ascent rewards with glimpses of the Adriatic Sea.

You’ll then cycle through Italy’s tranquil Friuli region before descending from the Karst Plateau through charming villages and along the captivating Istrian coastline to Piran. The historic heart of Croatia unfolds as you ascend from Buje, culminating in a relaxing coastal ride through Poreč and Rovinj.

In essence, this cycling journey is more than a physical expedition; it’s a curated cultural and sensory experience that leaves an indelible mark on your memory, inviting you to relive these cherished moments until you return for another unforgettable adventure.
