From the Julian Alps to the sea

Trans Slovenia 01 is a MTB tour that connects three countries: Slovenia, Italy and Austria. Over seven days you will experience extraordinary diversity, you will see snow and the sea, while the reward for your cycling stamina will be excellent food and a glass of premium wine. The tour starts in the Julian Alps, with the famous winding ascent to the Vršič mountain pass and the descent to the Trenta Valley. The trail leads through the picturesque valley of the Soča River, through the towns of Bovec, Kobarid and Tolmin, and then rises to the Goriška Brda Hills, a paradise for the lovers of beautiful views, excellent wine and cuisine.

The next destination is the Karst, a different landscape that entices with its unique features and offers authentic culinary experiences. The tour continues towards the sea, past the world-famous Lipica Stud Farm, all the way to the coastal town of Piran where the cycling  ends in the lovely Tartini Square.

You can ride on your own, but there is always the option of a perfect cycling experience with a guided Trans Slovenia 01 cycling tour.
