The Slovenian Tourist Board’s Green Wellness Cycling Route is a 16-day cycling plan that circles Slovenia’s diverse landscapes and connects with leading Slovenian spas and natural health resorts along the way.
The daily stages are designed to leave ample time for relaxation, treatments and resting tired muscles. The circular route begins in the capital, Ljubljana, before heading north, towards the Kamnik-Savinja Alps.
As the landscape flattens, the route runs through Štajerska to the mountains above the Pannonian Plain. The final part of the route leads to unique locations such as Kozjansko Regional Park, also known as the “Slovenian Venice” and Otočec Castle, which sits in the middle of the Krka River.
Throughout the scenic route, cyclists will experience local hospitality and Slovenian gastronomic creations.
The total length of the Green Wellness Cycling Route is 680km, with over 500 marked attractions, but cyclists can choose which sections to complete: the route has been split up into 16 individual stages with an average length of 40km each.
Visitors can include trains in their journey or plan a weekend trip that includes parts of the route.
The tourist board has created a route map for a complete navigational package and daily detailed descriptions of places to sleep, eat and sights to see.
The Slovenia Green Wellness Route is not the first Slovenia Green cycling tour: the country already has a raft of ‘sister’ routes. They all promote the same aim: to facilitate exploring green destinations and visiting green service providers in the most sustainable way – by bike.
