The wonderful cycling route on the Pokljuka plateau starts on Rudno polje. In winter, Rudno polje is the venue for biathlon world cup competitions and a popular spot for cross-country skiing; in summer, it is the starting point for climbing Triglav and other peaks of the Julian Alps. We suggest a visit to the training centre and shooting range. The route takes you along forest roads among the fairy-tale Pokljuka forests, over mountain pastures that offer magnificent views of the Julian Alps and Triglav.
Pokljuka plateau is covered with spruce forests and pastures where cattle graze in summer.

Safety informationThe route is used for farming purposes; therefore, you can also meet cars, motorcyclists and forestry machinery along the way. We recommend special attention there. The tour's route runs completely in the Triglav National Park, so stay on asphalt and wide stone forest roads. Tree removal trails and mountaineering trails are inappropriate for cycling.
