Classical Slovene bike trekking tour, covering main cultural and natural points of interest. Following ancient route of medieval merchants you'll travel towards the Adriatic sea and visit the famous Postojna Caves, original Lipicaner Horse stud farm and enjoy great food and wine of sunny western Slovenia.

You arrive in the Slovenia capital of Ljubljana with its mighty fortress above the city. In the evening you can relax with a drink on the bank of the Ljubljanica river.

The route takes you into some ‘real' Slovenia, away from main tourist routes and off the beaten track. You may like to stop for a picnic in the nature reserve of Rakov Škocjan. On your way to Štanjel you can visit the world famous Postojna caves with their beautiful lime stone formations, not forgetting to mention the unique "human fish"! There is also a possibility for a detour to Predjama castle, which was once owned by the last Slovenian knight. Learn about his romantic destiny. 

From Štanjel there are some wonderful views as well as a village of well-maintained old houses, now a museum. You can visit a local artist in a typical Karst village and try the local ham and wines. On the way to Lipica you can stop to see the famous Lipicaner horses known from Vienna Spanish riding school. Go to see their show, or go for a ride with a carriage. The last day you can enjoy a cappuccino in one of Trieste's old-fashioned cafes. Alternatively you can skip Trieste and enjoy an afternoon on the beach of the Adriatic at Piran.
