The Bike Slovenia Green is a 6 day biking tour connecting destinations that have obtained Slovenia Green certificate. Destinations receive this certificate when they show sufficient efforts directed towards the sustainable development.

This very diverse biking tour combines the landscapes of the Julian Alps and those of the Mediterranean in only 6 days. It starts in Kranjska Gora and runs by the famous Lake Bled after passing through one of the most beautiful alpine valleys of Radovna and by yet another alpine pearl, Lake Bohinj, and crossing the Pokljuka plateau with its dense forests and mountain pastures. From Bohinj the train will take you via one of the most scenic railways to Most na Soči and cycling continues along the Soča river, which has a distinct emerald green colour and is considered to be one of the most beautiful rivers in Europe. The Soa Valley was the first destination in Slovenia to earn the title of the European Destination of Excellence (EDEN) due to its sustainable development in tourism.

After Soča Valley, the tour leaves the mountains and enters the land of gentle, rolling hills covered in orchards and vineyards and dotted with small, secluded villages – the region of Goriška Brda reminds of Tuscany. The wine growers of Goriška Brda are famous around the world for their high quality wine, and any wine connoisseur would recognise many of the names displayed along the road winding through the landscape. Wine tasting is obviously inevitable here.

Did you know that the noble white Lipizzaner horses originate from Slovenia? The original stud farm has been set in Lipica, in the Karst region, since 1580. This is where the tour makes a stop after passing most of the Karst region and before descending towards the town of Koper, a small slice of Venice in Slovenia. The mission of the last day is to explore Istria on bike, following the abandoned Parenzana railway track, which offers the most stunning sceneries.
