FULL ITINERARY

DAY ZERO SUN 23 JUN | ARRIVAL

Arrive in Ljubljana and settle into the hotel. The night's accommodation is booked for you, before the tour commences tomorrow. The guides will be there in the afternoon to assist with bike set-up so you are ready to roll.

DAY ONE MON 24 JUN | LOOP TO POLHOGRAJSKI

Today's scenic route takes us in to the pre-Alpine hills of the Polhograjski Dolomiti. One climb up to around 900M. Low average gradient but a few steep bits to keep you honest, with a fast, fun descent to follow.
DISTANCE | 70KM | 43MI
ELEVATION | 900M | 2950FT

DAY TWO TUE 25 JUN | LJUBLJANA TO BLED

Your first big day out! We leave Ljubljana, riding the reverse of yesterday's finish to Skofja Loka. From there we're in new terrain, climbing to Drazgose and enjoying panoramic views as the road winds across the ridge. Our destination is beautiful Lake Bled.
DISTANCE | 70KM | 43MI
ELEVATION | 950M | 3100FT

DAY THREE WED 26 JUN | LOOP OF LAKE BLED

The vibrant jewel of Slovenia, Lake Bled is stunning and simply not to be missed. Although we have two lakes on the menu today. You decide which is the most beautiful. We ride along the shore of Lake Bled, with views to the beautiful baroque church on the island. We then follow the Sava Bohinjka river right up to tranquil Lake Bohinj.
DISTANCE | 99KM | 60MI
ELEVATION | 1600M | 5250FT

DAY FOUR THU 27 JUN | BLED TO BOVEC

Sensational day in the saddle! The route gives us one last look at Lake Bled, and then winds along the valley to Kranjska Gora, following quiet bike paths amid the trees. Today is your Queen Stage. When we leave Kranjska Gora, we begin the climb of the famous Vrsic Pass. Built by Russian prisoners of war, with cobbled hairpin bends, this is a magnificent, bucket list ascent. Around the 50KM mark, stop to catch your breath at the chapel in honour of the Russians.
DISTANCE | 90KM | 56MI
ELEVATION | 1700M | 5600FT

DAY FIVE FRI 28 JUN | LOOP TO KOBARID

A slightly easier day after the Vrsic Pass, we'll pedal over an undulating, hilly route to Kobarid. Our route roughly follows the Nadiza and Soca rivers, taking us very close to the Italian border.
DISTANCE | 82KM | 50MI
ELEVATION | 1200M | 3900FT

DAY SIX SAT 29 JUN | THE MANGART!

Extra special route for the last day. A mere 50KM, but what an awesome ride! Out and back route to the top of the world, the Mangart Pass. One of the highest roads in Slovenia, we'll climb to just over 2000M. Up on the way out, down on the way back. Celebrations to finish!
DISTANCE | 50KM | 31MI
ELEVATION | 1650M | 5400FT

DAY SEVEN SUN 30 JUN | GOODBYE
