Pearls Of Slovenia
Day 1: Bled Individual arrival. Bled is a world famous town on the shore of a beautiful glacial lake. Defined by its distinctive island church and towering alpine mountain backdrop, and the clifftop castle, Bled is one of Slovenia’s most popular tourist attractions. Visit the island church and marvel at the ornate golden altar and ring the church bell and make a wish, it might come true.
Day 2: Bled to Ribcev Laz (approx. 20 km):
From the high plateau at Pokljuka (12 km) you can marvel at the views as you glide down into the neighbouring Bohinj Valley, the jewel in the heart of the Triglav National Park, until you reach the lake itself. Cycle around the lake to the Savica Waterfall, and then take the cable car up to Vogel Mountain for a spectacular view of shimmering alpine scenery.
Day 3: Ribcev Laz - Škofja Loka (approx. 57 km):
Leaving Bohinj you cycle up 750 m/2400 ft to the Jelovica high plateau. From the top the trail drops off into the Selška Dolina Valley leading to the lush green Škofja Loka hills.

Day 6: Begunje - Kranjska Gora (approx. 44 km): Today's trip continues along the edge of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps and you will arrive in the historic village of Begunje.
