Cycling in Slovenia

Slovenia offers the cyclist an exceptionally diverse and pristine landscape to explore on two wheels, from Alpine scenery to the Mediterranean coast, all of which are easy to access in this compact and welcoming country. Cycling is a popular pastime in Slovenia and a network of trails for all abilities have been waymarked across the country along quiet paved back roads combining nature with medieval castles, villages and vineyards and off road through areas of natural beauty. Over half of Slovenia is covered by forest and natural wonders include Mount Triglav, Lake Bled and Postojna Cave.

The rolling plains of Moravske Toplice, located in the far east of the country, present the cyclist with a number of waymarked cycleways that follow paved routes with little traffic in a landscape of vineyards, well-preserved traditional architecture and pristine nature. Routes can be extended over the border to Graz in Austria and to Budapest in Hungary to make a bike trip of the wider region.

Country Information

On the Mediterranean coast of Slovenian Istria a mild climate offers year-round cycling between historic towns and villages. The former railway line from Trieste in Italy to Porec in Croatia has been converted into a cycle route. A popular linear route that incorporates all three countries starts in Venice and ends in Porec.

Triglav is Slovenia’s only National Park, set in the Alpine north near the border with Austria, and there are a number of beautiful routes to explore on two wheels. Further east the city of Maribor, set in the green Pohorje Hills, is a mountain bike MTB World Cup venue that also offers road cycling combining cultural heritage with an age old tradition of wine making.

Notranjska Bike Park, near the mountainous southern border with Croatia, offers mountain bikers of all abilities over 500 kilometres of trails that crisscross the largest unpopulated woodland in Central Europe.

Conditions vary according to location, in the interior they are just right for cyclists in the summer months while the coastal route is possible throughout the year tempered by cool breezes from the Adriatic.
