The Trans Slovenia 03 biking tour is taken from the eastern to western part of Slovenia, along the border with Austria, leading the group across different scenic mountain massifs and through beautiful Alpine valleys. The path, which begins in the second largest Slovenian city of Maribor, ends in Kranjska Gora, a beautiful Alpine village at the foot of the Julian Alps. The tour includes an abundance of various trails running through many different landscapes and offering plenty of breath-taking vistas as well as diverse experiences, including bike trail parks at almost every stage. The magical spruce forest trail across Pohorje passes the natural reserve of Črno jezero ( Black Lake), leads over a picturesque grassy reef to the valley of Koroška and to Slovenj Gradec, which is the largest town in the region, and ends at the tracks of the Jamnica Single Trail Park. Before ascending to Raduha, which is a mountain in the eastern part of the Kamnik–Savinja Alps, a section of the tour follows an underground trail through the abandoned mine tunnels. The panoramic road leading from Raduha above the famous Logarska dolina valley offers impressive views over the mighty walls of the Kamnik–Savinja Alps. The breath taking mountain scenery surrounds a brief yet steep descent to the Austrian side and an ascent back to the next mountain border pass to reach the high glacier valley of Jezersko. From there, a steep border trail leads into the heart of the Karavanke mountains. The path includes steep climbs on gravel, connecting trails and mountain pastures under Košuta, which is Slovenia’s longest mountain ridge. After a thorough exploration of the Karavanke trails and many beautiful sights, a wonderful view of Lake Bled opens up and makes the last kilometres towards its shore more enjoyable. The last part of the tour leads from the picturesque Radovna Valley to Kranjska gora.
