Bike tour Bled takes you to Pokljuka, which is a plateau covered in the magnificent spruce forest and is located in the middle of Triglav National Park. Despite the prevalence of forest, breathtaking views of the Julian Alps on one side and of Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj on the other, are waiting for you. Imposing forests hide thousands of stories in their midst and are a true cycling heaven high in the mountains. Have a cup of milk and a slice of the authentic Bohinj cheese and listen to the stories of shepherds. When the snow covers the plateau in silence, it becomes a cozy retreat for ski runners and tour skiers.

Pokljuka is one of the best known Slovenian plateaus, as it holds world famous biathlon competitions. It is the largest closed forest area in the Triglav National Park. It is 20 km long and almost as wide. In a span from 1000 to 1400 m there are around 6300 ha of forests, in which spruce prevails. A rugged surface of hidden shafts, overgrown potholes, dolines and valleys is a remnant of the activity of the Pokljuka glacier.

“What a great way to see the alps an the mountains from up close. The guide was great, very friendly and kind. We were always treated the best way possible. You’ll be in the mountains and pastures, get to see some animals. After you finish the tour you get to eat some proper local food in a local mountain wooden lodge restaurant and then he takes to see both the Bled Lake and Bohinij Lake and have some very local treat.
Definitely recommend it, you can still get back to Ljubljana for late afternoon drinks and dinner.”

“We had an excellent time. Our guide was so flexible – catering to our needs and cycle capabilities perfectly. We enjoyed seeing Slovenia through the eyes of a local. We wouldn’t have been able to explore the Julian Alps by ourselves. The biggest highlight was sharing cheese, sour milk and bread with a shepherd. The e bikes were terrific. We highly recommend this company and we will use them again when our travels take us this way.”
“We did two guided tours. Both were great in its own way. The guide perfectly felt what we liked. Trips were really good, we fell in love with Slovenia, and will for sure come back. If you like biking, and nature: don’t look for anything better! Greenhills!”
