AN EPIC TOUR THAT WILL TAKE YOU TO THE BEST SPOTS IN THE JULIAN ALPS!
Julian Alps are the largest mountain group in Slovenia and also a part of the Alps. Almost in the middle of the mountain range is the highest mountain of Slovenia, mt. Triglav. The three main valleys; Bohinj valley, Upper Sava valley and Soca valley offer a gateway to the kingdom of the peaks, lakes and alpine meadows. For all cycling enthusiasts we have designed an amazing loop where you can in 3 days experience the best of what Slovenian mountains and the Julian Alps have to offer. We suggest to do the tour with gravel or mountain bike, but if you prefer to stay on asphalt most of the time we have a road cycling option ready for you. Although we live in the Julian Alps all our life, and we are used of the mountains is this the tour that leaves us speechless every time we do it.
