MOUNTAIN BIKING LOOP

Cyclists perceive nature and the landscape quite differently than hikers. Despite this, the circular mountain biking trail around the Julian Alps – Juliana Bike shares similar panoramas and views of life in the Julian Alps to the footpaths along the Juliana Trail.

The marked mountain biking loop takes you along local roads, biking trails, forest trails or unpaved roads and also demands respect for nature, plants, animals and other sensitive natural habitats, as well as the local people who live sustainably in the protected UNESCO – Man and Biosphere natural environment and Triglav National Park.

Top attractions

The Great Soča Gorge

This pristine gorge is one of the most beautiful natural sights on the Soča River and an important natural treasure of the Triglav National Park.

Boka Waterfall

The most water-rich and mightiest waterfall in Slovenia, with a total height of 144 metres and width of 18 metres, is also one of the most majestic waterfalls in Europe.

Tolmin Gorges

The Tolmin Gorge is a common name for the Tolminka and Zadlascica Gorges, which are one of the most magnificent natural attractions in Tolmin.

Three mountain bikers descend along the path under the wooden church in Javorca where a cow also grazes.
Javorca, memorial Church of the Holy Spirit

High above the bed of the Tolminka River, there is a wooden sacred place, the Memorial Church of the Holy Spirit in Javorca, which bears the European Heritage label.

Kozjak Waterfalls

The mysterious Kozjak waterfall, which is captured in a stony chamber, is according to many the most beautiful waterfall in Slovenia.

Juliana Bike is part of the Slovenian Mountain Biking Route

According to the example of the Slovenian Alpine Trail, the Alpine Association of Slovenia designed and opened the Slovenian Mountain Biking Route in 2016, which with 1800 km in some way encircles Slovenia. The Julian Alps are also part of it and this new loop surrounds them as well. The stages of the Slovenian Mountain Biking Route that embrace our largest mountain range, are integrated in the Julian Alps protected area, i.e. UNESCO – Man and Biosphere, offering a unique opportunity that connects and creates a pan-Slovenian loop. Its route is practically identical to the Slovenian Mountain Biking Route, however, its starting and finishing stages have been relocated to populated places or tourist centres of the Julian Alps region.
