Leaving Ljubljana, we head back to the mountains, stopping for coffee at a beautiful alpine lake, before riding a short stretch to Austria and then back into Slovenia along the famous Logarska Valley, the largest glacial valley in the Kamnik- Savinja Alps. Wide, lush and green the Kamnik-Savinja mountains tower above, only 35 people are allowed to live in the protected valley on isolated farms. A traditional lunch will give us the energy we need to continue the ride. As the mountains give way, to a hilly wooded landscape, the road weaves through villages, and forests to the beautiful Ptuj castle, the oldest town in Slovenia. Just a few miles further on, we ride through some of Slovenia’s finest wine-producing regions and a another hidden jewel. The beautiful tranquil hotel, renowned in the area for its legendary hospitality and exquisite wines.
