Slovenia borders Italy, Hungary, Austria and Croatia, making it the ideal location for an epic cycling tour. It’s the only EU country that connects the Alps, the Mediterranean, the Pannonian Plain and the Karst region. Positioned perfectly in the race season calendar, this premium cycling tour will lead you to the most amazing views while clicking off rewarding miles through the sparkling Slovenian cities of Ljubljana, Lipica, and Kranj. Travel like a pro team rider with all of your meals, transfers, luxury accommodations and cool Team Bahrain Victorious “swag” included for every guest! Best of all, your non-cycling guests will also be accommodated, road and e-bike rentals are available, and we include plenty of time to see this spectacular country.

The 8 night tour will start exploring the area around the capital of Ljubljana towards the most photographed church in the country Sveti Tomaž this includes cycling part of the route which will form part of the L’Etape Slovenia by Tour de France in 2024. We will then relocate to the beautiful limestone land of the Karst region, rich in vineyards producing ruby-red Teran and Refosco wine. Based in Lipica, the home of the magnificent Lipizzaner horses, we will ride by exploring the amazing stretch of Slovenia, cycling through the old karst village of Kamen, Pliskovica and Dutovija, dotted with old stone churches and red-tiled roofs. We then pedal on to cross the Italian border, connecting to Parenzana and then turning back to Slovenia from where the road leads us past Koper. On our way back to Lipica we will experience our last climb of the tour Črni kal.

The highlight of our tour will be the L’Etape Slovenia by Tour de France race where you will experience a very scenic circle ride and cherish the green countryside of Slovenia.
