Sykkelferie til Slovenia i boks!

Sykkeltur til Slovenia
26.8 - 2.9, 2013

Her følger opplegget til sykkelturen vår som går til Slovenia i august i år. Vi fant turen på Cycling Slovenia sine websider HER. Turen er en 8-dagers hvor vi sykler totalt 230km og hvor bagasjen blir fraktet for oss. Hotellrom er booket på forhånd av Helia Travel Agency, og det eneste vi har å gjøre er å sykle fra hotell til hotell etter forhåpentligvis forståelig kart :o) Man kan velge om man vil leie sykler eller å bringe egne. Vi drar med egne sykler!

Departure: any day from 8th April to 13th October
Tour Type: self guided; hotel to hotel
Duration: 8 days (7 nights)
Total Distance: 230 km
Starting point: Lake Bled
Price: 580 €

Day 1: ARRIVAL IN LAKE BLED 4* hotel (voted best in 2011 by our guests).
Bled is a world famous town on the shore of a beautiful glacial lake. Defined by its distinctive island church and towering alpine mountain backdrop, and the clifftop castle, Bled is one of Slovenia’s most popular tourist attractions. Visit the island church and marvel at the ornate golden altar and ring the church bell and make a wish, it might come true.
