Cycling route connecting the Lower and Upper Bohinj Valleys, runs past numerous natural and cultural sights in Bohinj.
Embark on an exciting adventure along a cycling trail that will not let you down. In the past, engineers planned to build a railway in Bohinj that would connect both valleys, but it was never built. Therefore, the original plans for the railway were thus used in 2011 to build a great cycling route that runs along the left bank of the Sava Bohinjka River in the Lower Bohinj Valley and through the alpine villages of the Upper Bohinj Valley. Entry points to the cycling route are located in Bohinjska Bistrica, Brod, Savica, Stara Fužina, Studor and Srednja vas. The route is mostly asphalt road and appropriate for all types of bicycles. Only a section between Češnjica and Brod (across the Senožeta meadows) is stone road, thus the use of a mountain bike is recommended.
To enter the cycling route, use the car park at the Danica Campsite in Bohinjska Bistrica (Lower Bohinj Valley) or the car park at the Senožeta ski centre in Srednja vas (Upper Bohinj Valley).
The Bohinj Cycling Route is used for farming purposes; therefore, you can also meet cars, motorcyclists and agricultural machinery along the way. Please, be more attentive in villages and consider traffic signalisation.
The major part of the route is suitable for all types of bicycles. The section between Češnjica (Upper Bohinj Valley) and Brod (Lower Bohinj Valley) is macadamised. For this section, the use of a mountain bike is recommended.
