While cycling you will admire the picturesque alpine landscape, interesting and beautiful alpine villages. The tour starts in Bled and continues over the Sava Dolinka River towards the villages below Stol, where you can admire the Karavanke mountain range and the Julian Alps. This tour is an excellent choice if you want to learn more about some of the most distinguished Slovenian artists, poets and writers, because quite a few were born in the villages where you will cycle. You will most certainly remember visiting Begunje, where Slavko and Vilko Avsenik, the world renowned national folk music composers and performers lived. You can also visit Elan ski museum in Begunje. Before returning to Bled you can make a stop in Radovljica, since its picturesque old city centre offers a great venue to stop for a cup of coffee or enjoy in many desserts offered in local cafés.

Author’s recommendation

If you wish to shorten your tour, we advise you to turn right towards Hraše in Rodine and continue along the suggested route from Lesce back to Bled.
