Alps to Adriatic, guided road cycling trip

Road cycling Alps to Adriatic

Guided | 8 days, 7 nights | | May to October

On-road cycling over breathtaking mountain passes and variegated landscapes filled with fresh air

This is the ultimate road cycling holiday adventure, connecting the most diverse landscape and visuals that Slovenia has to offer.

You’ll travel from the small and vibrant capital Ljubljana to the Adriatic coast. On-road biking will lead through the picture-perfect Lake Bled, across the mountain passes of the Julian Alps and Triglav National Park, as well as Slovenian Karst and Vipava valley.

Navigation will guide your biking adventure, to give you the freedom of independent cycling at your own pace. Your tour leader drives the support van and meets you several times throughout the day to make sure you are doing well. The leader will also treat you with some snacks and cheers during your rides, which feels almost like you’re on the Tour de France.

We are confident to say that this is the best and most diverse road biking tour in Slovenia. Do you dare to try it?

Slotrips guide

A passion born in mountain summer camps nurtured through the adolescence and upgraded in different courses brought me to the point of making my hobby a profession. With like-minded friends, I had spent many fun days and starry nights tramping the mountains. Therefore I love spending every day in nature, where I eagerly share my knowledge about Slovenia. So if you wish to experience a fun hike, taste some amazing food, perhaps just spend a few days outdoors or enjoy a debate over a beer, you can count on me! When I’m not in the mountains, you will find me working on various non-profit projects, or maybe sleeping…

“We are back in Calgary and back to reality after our wonderful week in Slovenia! Thank you so much for the wonderful tour and the taste of what Slovenia has to offer! It was all perfect! We loved the locations we visited, the rides, the food, the hotels and our guide Aljaz couldn’t have been any more accommodating. What a pleasant young man to spend a week with! I also wanted to thank you and Aljaz for making Don’s 60th birthday such a memorable and special day! The champagne-filled picnic basket on the rocks during our whitewater rafting was so special! Thank you for everything! We hope to visit Slovenia again and when we do we will definitely be in touch!”

Questions & answers

How difficult is the biking?

Expect to bike approx. 85 km (135 miles) and 1400 m (4600 ft) elevation gain on the most difficult days. There are quite a few serious climbs and also some steep 15% bumps. You need to be a keen road biker with a great fitness level to fully enjoy the trip. Keep in mind that we can customize everything to your wishes.

What are the roads like?

Mostly we bike on low traffic village roads and avoid the busy roads as much as possible. However, sometimes this is not possible and we do have some sections on regional roads. On Day 4 (when crossing Vrsic mountain pass) there are quite a lot of cars in the main tourist season (July & August), but they mostly drive slowly on the curvy mountain road.

What is the weather usually like?

In summer (from June to early September) the weather is usually hot, with temperatures around 25-30 deg C (75-90 deg F). In peak season (August) you can expect a heatwave with temperatures likely exceeding 35 deg C (95 deg F) as well as a significant temperature drop in the mountains on a cloudy, windy or rainy day.

May and especially October are cooler and you should bring some gloves and warmer layers as well.

What is the maximum group size?

Our road cycling trips are private. For this trip, we accept up to 10 bikers per tour leader.

What kind of accommodation do we stay in?

You’ll stay in selected nice and clean centrally located 3* hotels or local guesthouses, in double or single rooms with en-suite bathroom.
