Introduction

Experience the country’s diversity on this unforgettable eight-day hike & bike Slovenia holiday, where every day is an adventure, and no two days are alike.

Slovenia is one of the most diverse countries in the world and a big part of it is covered by forests and sits on rocky mountainous terrain. That means it is inaccessible with everyday transportation and the only way to discover the country’s true beauty and find its hidden gems is by strapping on a backpack or travelling on two wheels. On this eight-day hike & bike Slovenia holiday, you will discover Slovenian beauty with the wind in your hair and a constant smile on your face.

  • Highlights, such as Velika Planina, Bohinj, Pokljuka, Kranjska Gora, Soča Valley and more
  • Let our team of experts guide you and enjoy a carefree tour filled with adventure
  • Discover the hidden gems of Triglav National Park when hiking on secluded trails
  • Ride through diverse landscapes, from Alpine valleys to the Mediterranean
Itinerary

Day 1Ljubljana on bike

Let the adventure begin! After we make our introductions we will take a guided bike tour to discover the city’s unique highlights and introduce you to the story behind the city. To get a real feel of the city, you can opt for a leisurely boat ride on the Ljubljanica River, or visit the mighty Ljubljana Castle with one of the best views of the entire city. Ljubljana is also known as a mecca for foodies, so we recommend trying some traditional cuisine in your free time.

Overnight: Ljubljana.

Day 2Hike to the traditional pastures of Velika Planina

You won’t just stare at the mountains that adorn Ljubljana’s cityscape, instead, we will take you to the high pastures of Velika Planina, where you can really admire the views from the heart of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps. A unique shepherd’s village located at the top of the plateau will uncover the authentic traditions of cheese making and cow herding in this incredible Alpine setting. You can reach the plateau by foot on a short scenic trail or opt for a cable car. After we take in the beautiful views, we will return back to Ljubljana, where you can enjoy some free time or go wine tasting authentic Slovenian wines.

Overnight: Ljubljana.

Day 3Cycling on the Slovenian Coast

After a hearty breakfast, we will drive to the Slovenian Coast. There we will begin the cycling tour that will take us through the beautiful Portorož and the narrow streets of Piran where we will explore the city’s medieval history. The route will follow the epic Adriatic scenery and even take us on an old abandoned railway track. We also offer E-bikes that make the tour suitable for everyone.

Overnight: Slovenian Coast.

Day 4Underground hike through Škocjan Caves & Vipava Valley cycling

In the morning we will depart from the Coast and visit one of the most remarkable regions of Slovenia. We will dive deep into the astonishing Škocjan caves, listed on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage sites, where we will explore the biggest underground canyon in the world.

When our eyes readjust to light, we will visit the wine-growing region of Vipava Valley, sometimes called the “Slovenian Tuscany”. A cycling tour will take us around this beautiful vineyard landscape and again, you can opt for an E-bike for an easier journey. After the ride, you can enjoy the stunning views at our accommodation or go to a wine tasting of the award-winning authentic wines at a local winery.

Overnight: Vipava Valley.

Day 5Tolmin Gorges and Kozjak Waterfall

A scenic ride will take us to the mountain town Bovec, surrounded by the mighty peaks of the Julian Alps. In the pristine alpine valley, we will explore the beautiful Tolmin Gorge and hike a magical trail, alongside the Soča river to the scenic Kozjak Waterfall near Kobarid. At the end of the trail there is a small wooden viewing platform where you take some amazing pictures. Another trail that we will explore will take us to Virje Waterfall, a hidden gem and one of the rare karstic springs that never dry up. In the afternoon you can enjoy some free time in Bovec, relax and get ready for the next day.

Overnight: Bovec.

Day 6Through Soča Valley, over Vršič Pass to Bled

After a good night’s sleep, we will hike deep into the pristine nature of Triglav National Park and look into the magic waters of the Šunik water grove. Our journey will continue up the spectacular road leading over the Vršič mountain Pass where we will take numerous photo stops to capture attractions like the stone face of the “Pagan Girl” and the wooden Russian Chapel. New adventures await in the alpine resort Bled from where we will cycle to the entrance of Vintgar Gorge, which we will further discover on foot. When we return back to Bled you can take a scenic ride in the traditional Pletna boat to the famous Bled island or even rent a SUP board if you have some energy left.

Overnight: Bled.

Day 7Lake Bohinj and hiking in the mountains

Full of energy after a tasty breakfast, we will take a short drive to the Bohinj area and take a cable car ride to Vogel, a skiing area in the winter and a hiking paradise the rest of the year. Surrounded by beautiful mountain vistas, the trails of Vogel are the easiest in the Slovenian Alps at such elevation. Enjoy the beautiful view of Lake Bohinj, an absolute pearl of Triglav National Park. If you wish to further explore Bohinj, opt for a hike to Mostnica Gorge, listed among the most beautiful and most visited natural attractions in Bohinj.

Overnight: Bled.

Day 8Ojstrica hike and departure

Unfortunately, every good thing must come to an end. But although our time together is almost over, there is still one last amazing adventure ahead of us. In the morning we will hike up a small hill overlooking Bled, called Ojstrica, for possibly the best view of Lake Bled, where you will be able to take some amazing pictures and take in the beauty of the amazing scenery. To make your last day as care-free as possible we can arrange a transfer to Ljubljana Airport from where you will leave Slovenia with memories that will last a lifetime.
