    All about the Lake Bled to Lake Bohinj Cycling – Slovenia.

    1-day cycling adventure in the Triglav National Park, between the two Alpine pearls: Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj via the majestic forest of Pokljuka Plateau.

    There are several ways of connecting the two Slovenian Alpine pearls: Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj. A more active choice, where we travel relatively slowly, is cycling through the Triglav National Park, experiencing Pokljuka Plateau and its vast pine forest. This is for sure a comfortable cycle, a round trip on a bike from Bled to Bohinj.

      After an introductory meeting, a short, 30-minute transfer will bring you up to Pokljuka Plateau (at 1200m above sea level) in Triglav National Park, where your cycling will begin. You will cycle on an enjoyable road through the Pokljuka forest from Mrzli studenec to Goreljek, a beautiful Alpine pasture in the heart of Triglav National Park. The road will begin to descend towards Lake Bohinj to which you will cycle past small villages. Once at the lake, an optional cycle around or at least to the other end will be possible.

      You will have a chance to visit the well-known Savica waterfall or take a cable car ride nearly 1000 meters higher to Mt. Vogel. After an enjoyable afternoon by the lake you will continue cycling on a pleasant cycling path towards the town of Bohinjska Bistrica. You will pass small, traditional villages and cycle all along the Sava Bohinjka river.  A short, 20-minute train ride from Bohinjska Bistrica will bring you back to Bled. One last cycle around Lake Bled will be a perfect conclusion to a magical day.

    We did return to Life Adventures and this time chose the self-guided cycling from Bohinj to Bled. We've done guided cycling before but felt a bit nervous taking on a self-guided trip in a foreign country. However, with an amazing and detailed briefing we received from Life Adventures' staff, who made us feel comfortable, we felt we could easily rely on their expertise and friendly advice. Everything went smoothly and our trip was a success for all involved (mixed age group, which is always a challenge when choosing a trip!). I do need to point out that their equipment was top notch and very reliable and safe! Thank you Life Adventures, keep up the good work!

    Two lakes, beautiful country, great hosts and delicious food. Guidence i very well organized and hour host shared real passion for cycling and exploring this great place. For me personally, other activites are also important. Local food and meeting new people and exploring. I highly recommend it.

    This was AWESOME! To own the truth, the directions were pretty hard to follow, we got turned around a few times, but it just added to the experience. We got to see so much and at our own pace. Riding through the small villages was simply priceless. A heads up: if you decide to do the ride around the lake, it's very rocky and has a lot of tree roots. The two people I was with didn't have any mountain biking experience, so they had to walk their bikes most of the way. I have experience and found it exciting but there were still a few places that were sketchy. We got to have lunch by the lake, riding the train back was fun and the weather was beautiful. Our sitting bones were sore at the end of the day but this was totally worth it. Such a great experience and so incredibly beautiful. Most of the ride is flat or downhill. You'll love it. Book this!
