Go on a fantastic bike tour that will take you through three diverse countries from the Dolomites to the Adriatic Sea!
Starting from the northeastern Dolomites, the first part of the route leads along the river Drava through the valley of the same name and then continues through the Gailtal valley on comfortable bike paths through Austria. After a short detour to the Italian border town of Tarvis, you cycle on to Slovenia. At the fairy-tale Lake Bled you will stay at the foot of the Julian Alps.
After a transfer to the south side of the Alps, you will return to Italy to the Friuli Venezia Giulia region and the famous Collio wine region. The former capital of the Longobards, Cividale del Friuli, is worth an extended stroll.
Afterwards, a spectacular conclusion of the Adriatic Sea cycling tour awaits you. On the last day you cycle along the sea to the former Habsburg port city of Trieste.
