On this amazing tour, we will visit the Triglav National Park, the heart of Slovenia. For an easy start into the day, we will take a shuttle up to the Pokljuka Plateau. Riding through the plateau's dense spruce forests and past pristine mountain pastures, we will reach Rudno polje biathlon centre to finish off the early part of our day.
Before deserving ourselves lunch at the fairytale Uskovnica mountain pasture, we will take another short break at the breathtaking Zajamniki mountain pasture and catch the first glimpse of Lake Bohinj. If the skies are clear, Mt. Triglav will boast in its splendour for us to frame it.
After the well deserved lunch break, only a long descent to the Upper Bohinj Valley separates us from a refreshing swim in Lake Bohinj.
As a perfect ending to our tour, we can either ride towards the famous Savica Waterfall or visit the Mostnica Gorge with its 'secret' waterfall at the end of the valley. Transport is arranged to take us back to Bled.
