Pickup location and time

You may have heard of the Cliffs of Dover, but the cliffs of the Slovenian coast are a best kept secret you’ll definitely want to discover. This cycling adventure presents you with diverse trails which combine the flat coastal part with a hillier inland. E-bikes make the tour suitable for everyone and the views you’ll witness along the way are spellbindingly beautiful.

We begin our tour in the cute seaside town of Lucia. The trail takes us through the nearby camp and along the coast, past the famous Sečovlje salt pans. This is where we hit a steep incline that doesn’t stand a chance against our e-bikes. During the ascent, views of the salt pans open up, revealing their fascinating beauty.
Reaching the top, a scenic trail across the agrarian landscape of the coastal hills awaits us. We ride through the idyllic village of Korte and continue down a wooded area, shielding us from the sun’s rays. Following this a diverse up-and-down section, the Adriatic Sea reappears in all its glory, as we start descending towards the lovely town of Strunjan.

Then the coastal part of the tour begins. Cycling along the Slovenian coastline is a relaxing and enjoyable experience that fills our lungs with fresh salty air and gives our muscles a chance to recuperate. There will also be ample opportunity to take a refreshing dip in the sea!

Our next stop is the beautiful town of Piran, Slovenia’s most picturesque seaside jewel. With its tiny winding streets and Venetian architecture, Piran will be a blast to explore. Slowly returning to our starting point, we’ll pass through Bernardin and the vibrant, hip seaside resort of Portorož or the “Port of Roses”, a stark contrast to Piran and the hilly terrain we leave behind.

Terrain: tarmac, gravel and some dirt

This is a diverse trail that combines the flat coastal part with a hillier inland. E-bikes make this option also 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.
