Itinerary

10.00 amPick up location

The tour starts at your accommodation, from where we will take you to Bled and enjoy a morning coffee with the marvellous view of Lake Bled.

11.30 am Route start

The starting point of the cycling part of the tour will be Mrzli Studenec, a beautiful spring underneath the cool cover of trees. Are the forests of Pokljuka really that magnificent? We will find out as soon as we start cycling, since the forest path will lead us past Javornik all the way to Rudno polje. From there, we will go towards the most beautiful plateau in Slovenia, accompanied by heart-stopping views of the Julian Alps.

16.00 pmRoute finish

We will complete the circle by riding past the Goreljek plateau where we will refuel ourselves with local food in Hotel Jelka. Don’t worry, we will also take some time off to dip our toes in Lake Bohinj.

18.00 pmDrop off

All-day trips will be concluded with a drive back to your accommodation.

Pokljuka

  • Pokljuka is one of the best known Slovenian plateaus, as it holds world famous biathlon competitions. 
  • It is the largest closed forest area in the Triglav National Park. It is 20 km long and almost as wide.
  • Despite the prevalence of forest, breathtaking views of the Julian Alps on one side and of Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj on the other, are waiting for you.
  • When the snow covers the plateau in silence, it becomes a cozy retreat for ski runners and tour skiers.
  • In a span from 1000 to 1400 m there are around 6300 ha of forests, in which spruce prevails. 
  • A rugged surface of hidden shafts, overgrown potholes, dolines and valleys is a remnant of the activity of the Pokljuka glacier.

Age Information

Guest requirements:

Guests ages 18 and up can attend. Parents may also bring children. If you bring a guest that’s under 18, it’s your responsibility to make sure the activities they participate in are age-appropriate.

FAQ

How many people will be in the group?

Since we believe smaller groups mean better experiences, we usually travel in groups of five to ten people. The minimal number of people for an individual group tour is four.


Who will be guiding us?

The tours are led by experienced cycling guides who know the tour locations like the back of their hands. They will be there for you with their experience and skills any time you’ll need them. They’ll try to make every tour more exciting with the right stories.


What about food?

All of our tours are planed with stops, where we can find local culinary specialties.


I’m not a PRO cyclist. Can I join?

Our cycling tours are suitable both for those who cycle regularly and those who take a cycling trip occasionally. We use electric bikes on our tours to turn even the most difficult trips into an enjoyable journey for those with less stamina or technical skills. Plus, we adjust every tour to your skills and abilities.


What should I bring on a tour?

Most importantly, you should wear comfortable sports clothes. Please bring bottle of water and sun protection in summer months.

We provide all the cycling gear (bikes, helmets, service first aid, …). Any additional gear or clothes can be stored in a van.


Can we bring kids with us?

Kids are also welcome, as long as they can cycle independently and can ride for at least 20 kilometers. Please notify us about any children joining when you book a tour. That way we can adjust the difficulty of the tour to them.


What about the bad weather?

Unfortunately, the weather is not up to us, so even the good plans might be ruined due to bad weather. We’ll make sure the tours happen even in less ideal weather, but we need to put your safety first. In case your tour gets cancelled due to bad weather, we’ll fully reimburse you.


What should I wear?

Wear comfortable sports clothes. You should also know some of the tours take place in the mountains where temperatures can change rapidly even during the summer. We suggest you bring warm clothes. You should also consider a waterproof jacket in case of bad weather.
