Itinerary

Mon, May 6 to Wed, May 15 - 2019

Show Itinerary:

Depart from home for Slovenia. The particulars of your arrival overseas are detailed with your flight itinerary.

Upon arrival at the Ljubljana Airport, claim your luggage and clear customs. VBT’s local representative will meet you outside the customs area in your arrival terminal and will be holding a VBT sign. Your representative will help you transfer (approximately 30 minutes) to your hotel. The rest of the day is free for you to settle in and explore the city. Tonight, choose a restaurant for dinner on your own. VBT provides you with City Information that includes information and recommendations on what to see and do in Ljubljana during your stay.

Please note: If you arrive early, your hotel room may not be available until after 2:00 p.m. You may store your luggage with the reception desk. If you are traveling from the west coast, your arrival in Ljubljana may not be until late in the evening.

Upon arrival, stroll the quiet pedestrian streets of this romantic city and explore on your own.

Hotel: Lesar Hotel Angel
Alternate Hotel: Allegro Hotel

VBT Air Package guests & Pre-trip Extension guests: Meet your local VBT representative at the Ljubljana hotel at 10:00 a.m. Please come dressed in cycling clothes and ready for biking. Make sure your luggage is ready in the lobby and tagged with VBT yellow tags. If you have brought your own pedals, please have them ready to give to your Trip Leaders.

From Ljubljana, transfer by private motorcoach (approx. 2 hours) to alpine Italy, where you’ll be treated to staggering vistas of the snow-capped Julian Alps to the south and the rugged peaks of the Carnic Alps to the north. You’ll meet your Trip Leaders in a countryside setting outside the charming hamlet of Valbruno, Italy. After an included lunch, they will hold a safety and bike-fitting session followed by a warm-up ride. The area is particularly charming and ideal for easy bike rides through the scenic Canal Valley (Val Canale).

This afternoon, explore the main street of Tarvisio, once an important stop on a trade route traversing the Alps to Venice. Its strategic border location has made it a crossroads of languages and cultures among Italy, Slovenia and Austria. Perhaps you’ll indulge in an Italian gelato, or visit the town’s quaint shops. Later, your small group gathers for a welcome reception and a delectable dinner prepared by your hotel owner.

The Hotel Edelhof is a charming family-run inn set between the surrounding forests and the center of Tarvisio, making it easy to explore everything this small alpine town has to offer.

Hotel: Hotel Edelhof Wellness & Spa
Meals: Breakfast (included for Air Package guests only), Lunch, Dinner
Daily Options: 6.8 or 12 miles (10.9 or 19.5 km)

Today, you’ll have the opportunity to experience the renowned “Alpe Adria” Bike Path, which enables cycling enthusiasts to ride from Salzburg through the Alps all the way to the Adriatic Sea. Your journey will follow the recently paved rail trail downhill from Tarvisio to Venzone, sometimes traveling through old mountain tunnels opening up on wonderful views of the Val Canale.

At times you will catch glimpses of the River Fella, a tributary of the Tagliamento. You can pause in the small town of Pontebba, located at the confluence of the Fella and Pontebbana creeks. The railroad line in Pontebba was the target of heavy aerial bombing during World War II, as this was Germany’s main resource for transporting supplies to Italy. During your scenic ride, you’ll pause for a picnic lunch prepared by your Trip Leaders.

Later, you’ll shuttle to the old town of Venzone, which has been restored to its medieval splendor. This excellent example of reconstruction has been declared an Italian National monument. The reconstruction includes the Cathedral of St. Andrea, home to the mysterious Chapel of St. Michele; its famous mummies date to 1647. Prior to burial, these bodies were perfectly preserved. They were so recognizable decades later, some people periodically retrieved the bodies to commune with their dead ancestors. The town is also known for its lavender shops. Later this afternoon, you will shuttle back to your inn.

Back in Tarvisio, enjoy time to relax. Then, join your Trip Leaders for an Italian wine tasting with a local wine expert. Choose a local restaurant for dinner on your own.

Hotel: Hotel Edelhof Wellness & Spa
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch
Daily Options: 27 miles (45 km)

After breakfast this morning, shuttle or ride to Laghi di Fusine (Fusine Lakes). Enjoy an inspiring walk around the lake with breathtaking views of Mt. Mangart. Back on your bike, ride an easy path through a pristine alpine landscape into Slovenia. Your destination is the charming village of Kranjska Gora, famous for its World Cup ski area and an adjacent peaceful retreat for nature lovers. Explore this picturesque ski resort town at your leisure and find a quaint restaurant to have lunch on your own before checking into your hotel.

Later in the afternoon, take some time to settle in and relax, or enjoy a stroll before your small group gathers for a special Slovenian evening in Kranjska Gora. Enjoy a cooking demonstration at a local restaurant, followed by a dinner of traditional Slovenian fare.

Hotel: Ramada Hotel & Suites Kranjska Gora
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner
Daily Options: 14, 17, or 19 miles (23.5, 27.5 or 31.5 km)

Your alpine adventure continues today with a ride through the Radovna Valley, passing pristine pasturelands. You’ll stop at one of the farms to sample the wonderful alpine cuisine produced in this region of Slovenia for lunch.

Afterward, continue to the storybook setting of Lake Bled. Enjoy an unparalleled experience of its splendor as you circumnavigate the lake by bike. If time allows, you may opt to take a boat to Bled Island—the only natural island in Slovenia and home to the beautiful Pilgrimage Church of the Assumption of Mary. Or walk up the hill to Bled Castle, the oldest castle in Slovenia, offering amazing views over the lake.

After your exploration of Lake Bled, shuttle back to Kranjska Gora to relax or enjoy a sauna. Indulge in a hearty dinner at the inn tonight.

Hotel: Ramada Hotel & Suites Kranjska Gora
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Daily Options: 8, 12 or 25 miles (14.2, 19.3 or 41.8 km)

This morning, a scenic reel on an easy bike path leads through a century-old forest into Austria. Beyond a pass—and through the immense limestone wall formed by the Carnic Alps and the Karavanken—you’ll continue cycling along the banks of the Gail River in Carinthia. This region is a scenic paradise of rivers and small emerald lakes set against the backdrop of the Noric and Carnic Alps. En route, you’ll enjoy a traditional Austrian alpine lunch at the Almwirschaft Hut.

This afternoon’s longer option takes you to Wörthersee Lake. Your path follows the valley through deep wooded slopes and sunny cornfields. At times, you’ll catch a glimpse of church bell towers or small villages laid out like blankets at the feet of mountains. For a shorter option, stop and explore the town of Villach and wander the pedestrian streets to shop or sample a local brew. From Villach, take a short train journey to Velden and enjoy a leisurely walk from the train station to your hotel, where you’ll stay for the next two nights.

Velden is a chic small town known as the little “Monte Carlo of Carinthia” for its elegant promenade, trendy cafés and restaurants, and busy casino. Home to many wealthy families of ancient lineage, it is a town of stately mansions, colorful gardens and refined lakeside restaurants. Your hotel is the magnificent Falkensteiner Schlosshotel Velden, an ancient castle on the lake’s banks. It was reopened in 2007 after a long and detailed restoration. Condé Nast Traveler has featured it as a “Hot Hotel” and its spa center as the “Hot Spa” of Austria—making it one of the most luxurious and innovative hotels and resorts in the world.

Hotel: Falkensteiner Schlosshotel Velden
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch
Daily Options: 19, 33 or 44 miles (32.2, 55.1 or 72.9 km)

Your bike ride today takes you around Wörthersee Lake. On the northern side, Pörtschach is an exclusive tourist resort, beautifully located on a little bay. Continuing to the southern bank, you’ll arrive at the picturesque village of Maria Wörth, which features two little medieval churches and a small peninsula that juts dramatically into the lake. A more challenging option for avid bikers follows the hills south of the lake into a scenic forest. For shorter options, a boat ride across the lake helps you cover ground more quickly.

You may shuttle back to your hotel and spend the rest of the afternoon swimming, relaxing or enjoying watersports on the hotel’s private beach. Thanks to the natural hot springs, the waters are sure to be warm and pleasant. Alternatively, you might choose to pamper yourself at the hotel’s luxurious spa center.

In the evening, gather with your travel mates for a festive farewell dinner.
