  • Discover breathtaking scenery that includes UNESCO-listed landscapes.

  • Enjoy picturesque alpine valleys like Soča Valley and Emerald Valley.

 

Mountain bike in the heart of the Julian Alps in the vibrant Slovenian wilderness to the coastal town of Piran, that looks out at the Adriatic Sea.

Trails zigzag and wind through the mountains and wild valleys in the western part of the country.

Untouched nature is your constant companion as you head from summit to sea, flanked by spectacular landscapes.

We’ll be in Kranjska Gora, a mountain town in the Upper Carniola region, resting in the heart of the Julian Alps. It is located in the extreme northwest, along the border with Italy and Austria.

Our end destination is the Mediterranean town of Piran, that peers out at the waters of the Adriatic Sea.

The route along the way carves through the stunning Soča Valley, scattered with flourishing vineyards below the iconic karst mountain peaks.

Green alpine meadows, emerald rivers and enormous peaks make up the collection of landmarks along the way.

During the week-long adventure, you’ll explore the Triglav National Park, experience cosy and charming hotels, UNESCO-listed landscapes and rich and tasty local flavours.
