Beaches, Lakes, Caves and Mountains - a great tour in Croatia, Slovenia & Italy
This tour takes in Croatia, Slovenia and Italy three of our favourite countries that offer fantastic scenery, great biking roads and good value for money. Due to the distance travelled, we are holding the tour at 14 nights, but for 2017, are changing things around a little so we can travel further south to visit the Plitvice Lakes.
Having crossed Germany, we enter Bavaria before turning southwards into Austria to ride the famous 'Grossglockner High Alpine' road. We cross into Slovenia for an overnight stop by Lake Bled. There is the opportunity to visit the fantastic Postijna Caves and the fantastic Plitvice Lakes, before a ride up the scenic coastal road takes us to our favourite 5 star Hotel on the Adriatic coast for a 3 night stay.
Suitable chilled, we return back into Slovenia to ride the challenging mountain roads of the Triglav National Park before passing into Italy to enjoy the great roads and dramatic landscape of the Italian Dolomites, a 2 night stop here gives us a day to explore the region further or take a ride-out to the stunning Lake Garda.
The Austrian Tyrol is next, as we have the opportunity to ride the Timmelsjoch and Silveretta before returning via Lake Constance and the Vosges Mountains.
Although the tour has many rest days, it will involve some long days and technical mountain roads, we therefore recommend it primarily for experienced riders who have ridden on the continent before.
This is an Escorted Tour which means that although the guide will be with you, you are responsible for doing your own navigation. We provide a Tour Pack which will include a full itinerary, suggested route directions, Gpx waypoints and hotel location. This system suits many people, as it allows them to ride at their own pace and style, either alone or in small groups. However, if you prefer, you may ride with the guide, who will act as your escort throughout the tour.
