Dolomites – Trieste, Variant with 2 nights in Bled

Italia - Austria - Slovenia

Difficulty Level:
Duration: 8 days
Distance: 315 - 360 km
Landscape:

Take in three countries in one week by bike. Italy, Austria and Slovenia will present their best features to you. You will witness varying and unique mountain ranges; untouched natural landscapes; crystal clear lakes; soft wine lands embedded against the hillsides and above all, extraordinary sought out stages provide the ideal backdrop for a bike holiday.

Starting from the northeastern Dolomites, the first part of the route runs along the river Drau through the valley of the same name and then on through the Gailtal valley on leisurely cycle paths. After a short detour to the Italian border town of Tarvisio you cycle on to Slovenia. At the fairy-tale Lake Bled, you will be at the foot of the Julian Alps. After a transfer to the south side of the Alps, you will return to Italy in the region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia and in the famous wine region “Collio”. The former capital of the Lombards, Cividale del Friuli, is worth a visit. Afterwards, a spectacular end to the cycle tour on the Adriatic awaits you. On the last day you cycle along the sea to the former Habsburg port of Trieste.
The tour to Trieste is a varied tour; the last two stages are a bit hilly. The tour goes along bike paths or very quiet side roads, through small villages and picturesque landscape.
