Slovenia has to be one of the best-kept secrets in European cycling. It has the alpine charm of Austria and Switzerland with magnificent mountains whose beauty and difficulty rival anything in the Dolomites. It’s perfect Thomson terrain! We fell in love with the rolling hills and and vineyards before we even started to climb. Over the course of the week, we’ll ride from the east of the country to the north-west corner where we’ll traverse the Julian Alps, the Slovenian extension of the Dolomites.

There are a lot of highlights on this trip, but our final ride takes the cake. It’s a classic Thomson loop over the North side of the Vrsic Pass followed by the dramatic 2000m Mangart Pass, the highest road in Slovenia. Voted by Thomson Staff as the Top Ride of 2015, we promise you an unforgettable day on the bike. It’s that good!
