Self-Guided Cycling Holidays in Slovenia

Discover Slovenia's beautiful cycling trails on a self-guided bike tour

With its fairytale castles, medieval villages and beautiful, cultured cities, Slovenia is a country rich with culture, art and history. Add in its truly spectacular landscapes, from the dramatic peaks, lakes and forests of the Julian Alps to the beaches, canyons and caves of the Adriatic coast, and it’s clear that this is a remarkable European destination that should be on your radar for your next self guided cycling holiday.

Explore Ljubljana, Slovenia’s gorgeous capital, with its cobblestoned streets, Baroque architecture and leafy, car-free city centre set on the banks of the Ljubljanica River. Raft whitewater rapids on the Soca River; tackle a climb of Mount Triglav, Slovenia’s highest peak; or cycle the famous Parenzana Bike Trail, a disused narrow gauge railway leading through tunnels, villages and stunning scenery across the border into Croatia.

Our unique self guided cycling holidays are tailored to get you deep into the heart of this magic country, taking in its key highlights as well as experiencing the beauty of its lesser-visited trails. Join us as we explore beautiful Slovenia!
