Adventure through the days:
We pick you at the airport and take you to Homestead Tešnak – your home for the next week. You will receive warm welcome from the local team and get to know us. We will go through the program and will make a plan for the week regarding weather forecast, overall conditions on terrain and your wishes.
Today we will explore the local area and do our first biking tour. After breakfast we will take our e-bikes and do a local mountain bike tour. We will reach the highest hill of Škofjeloško hribovje, learn something about the history of the area, see WW1 bunkers and enjoy the views on Poljanska valley. On the way home we will stop on traditional cheese farm and have a short guided tour with degustation.
Today, we will go a bit higher, out of mountain bike reach. We will spend the day hiking on the most beautiful secret trails of Slovenian Alps. The tour will be adjusted to your fitness level and experience. You will be accompanied by an experienced mountain guide.
After two days of activities we will take a day off. We will use it to explore nearby towns of Škofja Loka or Ljubljana, accompanied by a tour guide. We will see some historic sights, explore the busy city center, try traditional Slovenian food, and get to know the cities.
We will take our bikes and go south, enjoying the Mediterranean climate. Bike trails through the vineyards, great wine and prosciutto and swimming in the sea will make it a day to remember!
Today we will visit the heart of Julian Alps, Bohinj. The beautiful glacier lake is warm enough for a swim on the hot days, but is an eye candy all year round. We will do a hiking trip on the mountains around it, enjoying the views. On the way back we will stop in Bled, another beautiful lake with the most picturesque little island on it. Bled is also famous for its cake, that we think you should try!
On your last full day with us we will take you biking again. Last day is totally adjustable to your wishes, we will plan it together and make sure you make the most of your holidays with us!
After breakfast we will say goodbye and we will take you to the airport for your next adventure.
