Length & elevation
Trans Slovenia 01 is a program that connects three countries: Slovenia, Italy and Austria and in just 7 days it offers almost everything – from snow, to wine and the sea. The trail starts with winding ascents to the Julian Alps in Kranjska Gora, across the Vršič pass and a descent along the emerald wild Soča River (passing Bovec, Kobarid and Tolmin). Along the way we uncover the memories of the First World War, stop at the wine cellars in Brda and Collio, enjoy moments of extraordinary culinary delights, and discover the Karst region and its underground caves and intriguing Lipizzan horses. The tour ends with taking a dip in the warm Adriatic Sea while enjoying relaxing Mediterranean evenings.
Slovenia for most riders is still a relatively unknown land, with stunning and varied landscapes between the striking Julian Alps, the romantic Soča valley, the lovely Brda wine region, the unique karst area and the sunny Adriatic coast – all connected with many old Military streets from the First World War and magical, completely unknown trails. Trans-Slovenia is a new, not too heavy, exclusive TransAlp Tour for mountain bikers in five to seven stages, with many variations to suit all tastes – on gravel or trail, from easy to difficult, an orientation tour with a high enjoyment factor, a perfect combination of adventure, hospitality and fun.
