Is This Trip For Me?

Empty roads, cobbled climbs, peaks over 2,000m and stunning scenery. Slovenia is just waiting to be discovered by the cycling world, get there before everyone else discovers it! This four night, small group break takes in some of the cycling highlights of the Julian Alps.

Tour Highlights

  • Beautiful Bled: One of the most photographed lakes in the world, Bled is our base for the first two nights and the last night. A perfect base in the foothills of the Julian Alps.

  • Climb the Mangart Saddle: Climbs over 2,000m are not limited to France, Italy & Spain. We ride the Mangart Saddle on day three before descending back to the finish in Bovec.

  • Ride the Vrsic Pass: The most famous climb in Slovenia, the Vrsic Pass goes to over 1,600m with some steep (12%) sections and cobbled corners. A unique and beautiful challenge.

Tour of Slovenia Cycling Holiday

Five days & four nights in stunning Slovenia taking in the best rides in the Julian Alps. This region shared similarities with the Dolomites with beautiful rock structures and green pastures. There are two classic climbs on the route: the Vrsic Pass (11km at 7%) with some steep ramps and cobbled sections & the Mangart Saddle (21km at 7%) with a summit above 2,000m. We stay for 3 nights in Bled & one night in the mountains in Bovec with a great mix of rolling rides & cracking climbs. Slovenia is an absolutely amazing place to ride!
