Explore the Julian Alps of Italy by road bike. Spend five days in the alpine village of Valbruna, Italy. While staying in the wonderful “Valbruna Inn”. Enjoy Italy’s mountain lifestyle of food and wine while enjoying daily rides on scenic bike paths and roads that dip into neighboring Slovenia and Austria.
“Spoil yourself with the new bike path, built over an old railroad track dating back to 1870. The bridges, tunnels, scenery and old train stations will leave you mesmerized. Multiple routes of varying difficulty are offered to suit your desires and abilities. You can climb the 22% grade to the top of Slovenia’s 3rd highest peak, Mt. Mangart or meander along the bike trail to visit a bakery in Austria. After a day out on the trails you can look forward to the reward of the local cuisine and wine. Top it all off with the over-the-top hospitality shown to all guests at the quaint Valbruna Inn and this will surely be a trip you will never forget”.
