The most beautiful cycling routes in Slovenian Istria
CYCLING ROUTES FOR ALL TASTES
In order to facilitate the search and trip preparation on the cycling routes of Slovenian Istria, we have therefore prepared several cycling routes from Koper, Izola and Portorož.
We have marked the routes. You can start a trip according your physical fitness and what you want to experience on the way.
Easy routes for amateur cyclist
Suitable for everyone, they are in the flat areas along the coastal strip from Koper to Portorož. Let us mention the Pot zdravja – “Path of Health” (along the path of the old Parenzana railway), which is just right for short and undemanding cycling trips. It runs entirely on asphalt and is largely away from traffic.
Medium routes for better prepared cyclists
Better prepared cyclists can go to the hilly Istrian hinterland to Korte, Padna, Krkavče or along the valley of the Dragonja river. These routes are especially pleasant in spring and autumn, as you can ride carefree in the face of the hot summer sun.
