Coming to Slovenia, the Alps region is one of the “must see” destinations to visit during your stay. It is known for numerous cycling and walking routes that offer stunning views of the mountains, lakes and rivers. You will also enjoy driving around the area and visiting local churches, museums as well as other beautiful natural attractions.
Motorcycling routes in Slovenian Alps
If you are travelling by motorcycle, there are a few routes around the region prepared especially for you (most can be also driven by car). Long or short, they will take you around the Julian Alps, Karavanke, Škofjeloško hills and Soča valley.
The shortest route takes you from Austrain border crossing Korenjsko sedlo through Kranjska gora over Vršič into the beautiful Soča valley through Trenta and Bovec. Following the other routes you will spend more time on your motorbike, but you will explore amazing places like Bled, Bohinj valley, Škofja Loka, Jezersko, Idrija, Tolmin and Kobarid. Whichever route you choose to follow, you can always stop to explore these areas in more details. I am convinced that you will not be able to resist to stay there longer than planned 🙂
Exploring the Alps with children
Visiting the area with children can be good fun as well. For smaller children there are special events and workshops organised during summer holidays. They will enjoy exploring the secret land of dwarfs in Martuljek forest, follow the trail of the Triglav fairytale in Dovje, they will be preparing the local specialities or learn about different painting techniques.
For bigger children there are many sport activities to choose from as well as cultural sites to visit in the region. From Bled castle, Savica waterfall, Bled Vintgar Gorge, bee-keeping museum in Radovljica to kayaking, rafting, canyoning and rowing on the lakes or rivers. Not to forget numerous hiking and cycling routes to explore the hidden spots.
