Day by day itinerary

Day 1 will start with a welcome meeting, where you will get all final information and materials for your trip. If you choose to rent bikes with us, this will also be the day when we will fit the bike to your needs. We suggest to come to Bohinj valley around lunch time and you will have enough time to check in your accommodation, prepare the bikes and do the first ride to beautiful Voje valley and along the Bohinj lake. This is a great ride to settle in the "Bohinj mood", get to know the area and start your biking vacation.

TECHNICAL DATA:
- distance: 16 km
- vertical meters: 450 m (up and down)
Your first full day of riding will be above the Bohinj valley in the forests of the Pokljuka plateau. You will ride through the upper Bohinj valley and start you climb up to the plateau. Soon you will be rewarded with a amazing view of the Bohinj valley. You need to climb just a bit more and you will come to the traditional alpine pastures that the locals here call "planina". The most famous of them is called Zajamniki and from there you can see the highest peak of Slovenia - mt. Triglav and Bohinj lake at the same time. We suggest a stop in one of the mountain huts for a traditional alpine lunch. The last part of the ride is a beautiful descent that will bring you back to the valley. Now it's time to relax by the lake and enjoy the tranquility of the Bohinj valley.

TECHNICAL DATA:
- distance: 38 km
- vertical meters: 1400 m (up and down)
This day you will start your ride along the Bohinj lake before you start your ride on the gravel roads of the lower Bohinj mountains. The ride today will take you up to the Soriska planina ski center where you do your final climb to the Bohinj ridge. From there you will ride an amazing WW1 mule trail, descending almost 1000 vertical meters. This descent will definitely leave you speechless. You will return back to the valley with a short 10 min train ride back to the Bohinj valley and finish the ride with a nice ride along the Sava Bohinjka river. If you finish early you can easily do some extra activities like SUP on the lake, canyoning or paragliding. In the evening we suggest that you celebrate your rides in the Bohinj valley with a nice dinner in one of the local restaurants that we call gostilna. We know where the best ones are and will be happy to reserve you a table.

TECHNICAL DATA:
- distance: 55 km
- vertical meters: 2900 m (up and down)
Your cycling is done, but we hope that we memories will remain forever. 🙂
