Overview

On this amazing tour, we will visit the heart of Slovenia, the Triglav National Park. For an easy start into the day, we will take a shuttle up to the Pokljuka Plateau. Riding through the plateau’s dense spruce forests and pristine mountain pastures, we will reach Rudno polje cross‑country skiing centre to finish off the early part of our day.

Before deserving ourselves lunch at the fairytale Uskovnica mountain pasture, we will take another short break at the breathtaking Zajamniki mountain pasture and catch the first glimpse of Lake Bohinj. If the skies are clear, Mt. Triglav will boast in its splendour for us to frame it.

After the well-deserved lunch break, only a long descent to the Bohinj Valley separates us from a refreshing swim in Lake Bohinj. As a pleasant end to our tour, we will then head for the town of Bohinjska Bistrica to catch a 20‑minute scenic train ride back to Bled, where we will finish our day on the banks of Lake Bled.

“We took a day out of riding trail centers to visit Lake Bled and the surrounding areas on the bikes. The Best of Bled day tour was perfect for this. The weather could have been better but we still had a great day. The guide Tomaz tailored the ride perfectly to suit our skills, throwing in as much trail riding as he could. The climb at the end was long but well worth it for the descent to finish. Highly recommend, thanks Tomaz for a great day.”
