UNFORGETABLE HIKING & BIKING ADVENTURE (29.8. – 5.9.2020)
Active group guided holiday for active nature lovers! This program combines two trekking & four cycling days, in one of the most beautiful corners in Europe.
To start with the tour in Triglav National Park, means to start in the idyllic images of the pure and intact nature. Your starting point is magnificent Lake Bled in the immediate vicinity of the Triglav National Park, one of the oldest European parks, admired for its dynamic intact and picturesque nature, rich vegetation and numerous endangered animals. Hiking ends in splendid Soča Valley where cycling will start. On two wheels you’ll be exploring charming Slovenian villages, fascinating Karst region with world class attraction Škocjan Caves (on UNESCO world heritage list), you will cycle through wine rich valleys, and you’ll even cross border and spend some time in neighbouring Italy.
