Cyclists perceive nature and the landscape quite differently than hikers. Despite this, the circular mountain biking trail around the Julian Alps – Juliana Bike shares similar panoramas and views of life in the Julian Alps to the footpaths along the Juliana Trail. The marked mountain biking loop takes you along local roads, biking trails, forest trails or unpaved roads and also demands respect for nature, plants, animals and other sensitive natural habitats, as well as the local people wholive sustainably in the protected UNESCO – Man and Biosphere natural environment and Triglav National Park.

Author’s recommendation

The trail is marked with blue signposts and markers indicating a mountain biking loop.
