Slovenia as a Cycling Destination for Outdoor Experiences

  • by

We have all loved our athletes, over the years they have been the only reference point when it comes to being united as a country. The variety of sports representing Slovenia all over the world is numerous, and at the same time it gives the public the strength, passion and love for the country. Supporting national sport is a hobby. When there are great results, the general public comes together and everyone feels the hard work behind the success. One of the moments like this was last week’s victory in the Tour de France. Tadej Pogačar and Primož Roglič made an exciting film during the three weeks of the most important cycling competition in the world. Nobody could have imagined taking first and second place on the podium, which is why it was so much sweeter to enjoy the final results. Sometimes it is difficult to explain the passion with which we follow our sports representatives, but to keep it simple and understandable, we can simply say that it is our way of life.

MICE Slovenia

Why do not we let this passion flow into the experiences we create for our guests? The possibilities are immense, because the supporting sports infrastructure is state-of-the-art. If we look at MICE Slovenia, for example, we can easily hold an event in the Nordic center of Planica. It is a training center for Nordic sports and offers a wide range of outdoor activities as well as indoor snow-related activities. Our planning goes even further, as we propose to make a real sports competition an experience for the guests, with the supporting food and drink service, entertainment, animation and more. This type of event is suitable for larger groups that spend time outdoors and have enough space for social distancing.

Leisure group tour packages

Why not plan a cycling tour through Slovenia or simply suggest a holiday package for cycling enthusiasts? There are destinations throughout Slovenia that offer all the amenities of such a holiday package. For example, if you are looking for a more alpine environment, the perfect destination could Kranjska Gora be Bled or Bovec. But we have done this in the past and offered a wonderful holiday package in Portoroz. It included 5 thematic day trips by bike to explore the region. The bike tours were designed so that the tour started each day from the hotel where it ended. The cycling routes offered a mixture of culinary delights, local sights and professional guidance by the licensed cycling guide. The program included a bike ride on the Parenzana trail, the exploration of the regional parks known for their extensive natural habitat, one day of cycling towards Croatia and on the last day a simple bike towards Piran. The afternoon is free, as most of the hotels in Portoroz offer wellness facilities within the resort.

Independent Travellers

Independent travellers are invited to either rent a bike or simply bring their own and use many of the well-organised cycle paths that are spread throughout the country. The diversity of Slovenia offers something for everyone. Mountain areas in the Julian Alps, plain in the east of Slovenia… During the activities you can meet locals, stay in boutique inns or just keep it simple and camp along the cycle route.

Luxury Travel Slovenia

Planning a bicycle tour through the selected region in Slovenia is a challenge. Contact us and our team can create a luxury experience. The program would only include stays in luxury boutique accommodation. The bike tours are always accompanied by an escort vehicle, electric bike for support and offer professional guidance for smaller groups. The cycling adventure must also include some of the highlights that make Slovenia a world-renowned destination, such as the spread of Michelin-star restaurants along the cycling routes.

If you are looking for something different and authentic to explore Slovenia in style, you can always consider following the sporting path and being part of the active lifestyle that Slovenians share.
