Cycling routes of varying levels of difficulty lead through the most beautiful corners in the Julian Alps. Road cycling, mountain biking and cycling routes for families attract countless cyclists to the Soča valley every year.

Cycling is most certainly one of the most appropriate but also one of the most interesting ways to explore the Soča Valley and its mountain background.

Due to the extreme diversity of the terrain, one can choose between easier, family appropriate trips, and more demanding mountain ascents.

Numerous forest trails, roads and cart tracks offer mountain bikers unlimited possibilities, whilst less demanding cyclists can take a ride on gentler valley roads and roads across certain plateaus. 

These numerous cycling trails are all marked and described in cycling guidebooks and on maps, whilst in the natural environment very few of them are marked.

The growing popularity of cycling is confirmed by the numerous events:
