The tour enables you to explore the beauties of Bled and its surroundings, the tour itself is quite beautiful and demanding. While cycling, you can admire the alpine landscape and breathe fresh air. The tour is suitable for mountain bikers and cyclists who have no problems with short but steep ascents. You will be awarded by visiting unspoiled nature and by the beautiful views of Lake Bled and the Karavanke mountain range, which is the natural border between Slovenia and Austria. And you will also be overwhelmed by the Sava Bohinjka River, meticulously managed fields and unspoiled nature.
