Welcome to Škofja Loka, the heart of beautiful Slovenia, where the Mediterranean meets the Alps. We will have some great adventures together!
The Medieval but modern Hotel Zamorc offers a great starting point to do lots of different activities in the natural environment spreading all around. In collaboration with professional mountain biking guides, you will explore the natural wonders of Slovenia.
In the week you will spend with us you will discover the local area, some of the best cycling trails with electric mountain bikes in Slovenia’s most beautiful forests and mountains. The local environment of the Poljanska valley is not yet crowded with tourists, so you will find peace and quiet there while enjoying untouched nature and extraordinary views on endless hills and forests. Together, we will explore nature, historic sites, traditional cuisine and have a great time.
We believe in an authentic and personal experience, all of the tours are privately guided. We tailor the whole experience exclusively to you, your wishes and skills. All our tours are interchangeable and can be fully adjusted according to the weather and other conditions, and to our respectable guests. Below, you will find an example of our cycling holidays in Slovenia.
DAY 1 – Warm welcome
We pick you at the airport and take you to Hotel Zamorc – your home for the first 4 days. 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 the 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 Škofja Loka hills, learn something about the history of the area, see WW1 bunkers and enjoy the views on Poljane 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 you are 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 through the vineyards
We will take our bikes and go south to visit Slovenian Tuscany, enjoying the Mediterranean climate. Biking trails through the vineyards, great wine and prosciutto while enjoying the summer breeze will make it a day to remember!
Day 4 – Say ‘cheers’ cycling tour
Poljane valley is truly breathtaking, that is why we will do another cycling tour in this area. This time we will cycle along the Rapallo border – western defense line from the 2nd world war. A day full of breathtaking views and history. We will finish our day with beer tasting at the local brewery Crazy duck.
Day 5 – Sigtseeing Ljubljana
After three days of activities, we will take a day off. We will use it to explore the capital city of Slovenia – 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.
In the late afternoon, when we finish with the Ljubljana sightseeing city tour, we will take you to Kranjska Gora – Triangel Boutique Hotel – which is going to be our home for the next 4 days.
Day 6 – Visiting lake bohinj & Bled
Today we will visit the heart of the 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, which we think you should try!
Day 7 – Cycling in Kranjska Gora to Italy and back
On our last day we will cycle along the former railway line, today one of the most scenic cycling trail in Slovenia. Imagine riding your bike so close to the magnificent north faces of the giants of Julian Alps, that you can almost touch them, yet ride on an almost completely flat surface. Add beautiful lake Jasna, Maybe Planica Nordic centre, definitely Zelenci natural reserve and cross the border with Italy to visit Laghi di Fusine. Yes, all tha we will experience on our last cycling tour.
Day 8 – Goodbye & farewell
After breakfast we will say goodbye and we will take you to the airport for your next adventure.
