Mediterranean climate and weather
Slovenia lies at the heart of Europe, where the Alps and the Mediterranean meet the Pannonian Plains and the Karst Plateau, but this is a delightfully less-developed country than much of Europe. You will experience amazing contrasts during this week of cycling. Beginning at the pristine Triglav National Park in the Julian Alps, and the Bohinj Lake countryside, you will enjoy breathtaking climbs and marvelous descents, with views of snow-capped mountains, and valleys whose clear skies are popular hangouts for parasailers and hang gliders. You too will enjoy the vitality that comes from mountain travel, clean air, and perhaps the healing waters of the Soca Springs, as you descend through the limestone labyrinth of Karst, following the same trails upon which Napoleon led his army.
Wild beauty is everywhere. In fact, day four’s challenging climb to the Vrsic Pass is considered one of the most beautiful mountain roads in all of Europe! From there, your descent takes you through old-growth forests and winegrowing hills, and eventually to where you can swim on the Adriatic shore of the Mediterranean before returning to Ljubljana. Slovenia is rich in resources, naturally gorgeous, and beautifully peaceful. It is simply a pleasure to explore the countryside and affluence of this country on the sunny side of the Alps, and to fathom its roots in the Habsburg Empire and the Venetian Republic. We hope you can join us for this fabulous ride; an adventure for all senses!
