DAY 1 – Warm welcome
We pick you at the airport and take you to Homestead Tešnak – your home for the next week. You will receive a warm welcome from the local team and get to know us. We will go through the program and will make a plan for the week regarding weather forecast, overall conditions on terrain and your wishes.
Day 2 – A get to know each other tour
Today we will explore the local area and do our first cycling tour in Slovenia. After breakfast, we will take our e-bikes and do a local mountain bike tour. We will reach the highest hill of Škofjeloško hribovje, learn something about the history of the area, see WW1 bunkers and enjoy the views on Poljanska valley. On the way home, we will stop at a traditional cheese farm and have a short guided tour with degustation.
Based on this tour, we will plan the rest of the week. You will get the idea of how the bikes are, what trails are you comfortable on and how much activities per day you like to do. We will get to know you better and be able to adjust the perfect tours for the week exclusively for you.
Day 3 – cycling tour in the karawanke
Today, we will go a bit higher, above the forest line. We will spend the day cycling in the high alpine meadows in the north of the country, the Karawanke. Our trail will lead us among the cows and sheep, passing the traditional shepherd’s houses, where they still produce dairy products the old way. The štruklji on top are an absolute must!
Day 4 – Sightseeing Škofja Loka or Ljubljana
After two days of activities, we will take a day off. We will use it to explore nearby towns of Škofja Loka or Ljubljana, accompanied by a tour guide. We will see some historic sights, explore the busy city centre, try traditional Slovenian food, and get to know the culture. A rest day can be changed due to the weather since there are plenty of activities to do in case of a rainy day.
Day 5 – cycling day in the south & enjoying the coastline
We will take our bikes and go south, enjoying the Mediterranean climate. Cycling trails through the vineyards, great wine and prosciutto and swimming in the sea will make it a day to remember!
Day 6 – cycling day & visiting Bled
Today we will visit the heart of Julian Alps, Bohinj. The beautiful glacier lake is warm enough for a swim on the hot days but is eye candy all year round. We will do a cycling trip to the mountains around it, enjoying the views. On the way back we will stop in Bled, another beautiful lake with the most picturesque little island on it. Bled is also famous for its cake, that we think you should try!
Day 7 – Goodbye & farewell
After breakfast we will say goodbye and we will take you to the airport for your next adventure.
