A "best of" local products

The home of good taste. As varied and diverse as the moments of enjoyment at the world's first Slow Food Travel destination are, they always also reflect the region's landscape and way of life. Fragrant Lesachtal Valley bread, Gailtal Valley bacon and "Slow Fish" on Lake Weissensee - they all provide more than just enjoyment. They also make you realise that the best is often right on your doorstep. Qualified guides as nature ambassadors or rural food artisans invite you to join in and try out as part of Slow Food experiences or certified "GREEN Experiences".

Cross-border leisure cycling

to Venzone (ITA) or Bled (SLO)

Take the bike bus for a cross-border bike tour with your own bike guide. The destination is either the Slovenian climatic health resort of Bled (bike route approx. 65 km) or the medieval lavender town of Venzone in Italy (bike route approx. 65 km). This very section of the Alpe Adria Cycle Route is considered one of the most attractive. A large part of it runs along the disused railway line "Pontebbana", through historic tunnels, over viaducts and bridges, and offers spectacular views of the surrounding landscape. 

As both tours are mostly slightly downhill, anyone can manage the distances. Once arrived at your destination, there is still enough time to enjoy Italian or Slovenian specialities before returning home in comfort by shuttle bus.

Booking info (May to October):

  • Wednesday: guided cycle tour via Kranjska Gora to Bled/SLO (along the route of the former "Crown Prince Rudolf Railway"; 65 km)
  • Friday: guided cycle tour to Venzone/ITA (along the Alpe Adria Cycle Route, 65 km)
