Pickup location and time

This tour takes place at the incredibly scenic Lake Cerknica, one of the largest intermittent lakes in Europe. The lake usually stays on the plain for about eight months of the year and stretches over 20 km2, but at its fullest, it covers a surface of 38 km2 – becoming the largest lake in Slovenia. Perfect for nature lovers and cycling enthusiasts who enjoy a nice and relaxing ride!

Our cycling journey begins by riding down a macadam road that leads practically through the lake itself. If it’s not flooded, we make a slight detour onto the fields, right up to the water. Riding down the pleasantly flat trail along the lake’s shore, we continue through the picturesque karst valley of Rakov Škocjan, which was formed when the ceiling of a karst cave collapsed under its own weight. Remnants of the old cave ceiling remain to this day in the form of two natural bridges. This natural phenomenon will also be our pitstop, where we have ample time to marvel at its beauty while regaining our strength to finish the final leg of our biking adventure.

Terrain: mostly gravel

The tour runs mostly along easy gravel roads and is suitable for everyone.

Things to know

It is important that your clothes are comfortable. It is recommended that you also have something warmer with you in case of a temperature drop or cold wind. You can always leave excess clothes in the van after consulting with our guide.

Even though Slovenia is small, it has quite a diverse climate, so it is not unusual for the weather to be better in another part of the country. In that case, we will suggest a different tour where the weather will be nice. If it doesn’t suit you or the weather is too bad for cycling, you will get a full refund.

We believe that your experience will be better if the group is smaller, so there will be max. 8 guests per guide.

The tour is adjustable to your skills and level of fitness. We use e-bikes, so hills will not be a problem. However, you should be comfortable with a few hours of activity.

All our tours are guided by professional local guides who will make sure you have a great time.

Children are also welcome as long as they can cycle independently. Please let us know in advance so we can prepare a smaller bike and adjust the tour if necessary.

Bring a bottle of water (you can always refill it) and sunscreen. We will provide bikes, helmets and a first aid kit.
