Tour description

Located between the Gulf of Trieste, the Vipava Valley and Brkini, lies our magical Karst – a landscape of endless possibilities for cross-country cycling. The Karst is a unique world, it is where water and rocks make contact. As such it offers a variety of mtb biking tracks, pebble roads and forest trails in which you can explore this fascinating and mysterious landscape.

In this package we have carefully designed three beautiful and interesting cross-country cycling tours around Karst and Brkini, all moderate difficulty.

*This is a self guided cycling itinerary. Meaning that you can cycle in your own pace, following the given cycle itinerary.
