This family cycling tour is perfect for exploring alpine landscape, architecture and life in the countryside. The route is mostly flat and perfect to spend an active day exploring and enjoying unspoiled nature. The route runs past Lake Bled, where you can enjoy in the view of Bled Island, Castle and the Karavanke mountain range from the shore. Stop for a moment and listen to the wishing bell resounding on lake surface. And when you end the tour, you can stop in one of Bled's cafés and taste the delicious and world renowned Bled cream cake.

Author’s recommendation

Although the tour is relatively short, it offers many possibilities to explore the life of local people and admire the landscape, therefore, we recommend you to take some time and enjoy in your cycling tour.
