Lake Bled - Family cycling destination

The Lake Bled is a very cycling friendly destination. It is ideal for less demanding older tourists or cycling enthusiasts and families. There are no special lanes for cycling in Bled and its surrounding, however since traffic is light, most roads can be used.

Local roads between scattered villages around Bled are suitable for short cycling trips. The route takes about 1-2 h, approx. 23 km. It is suitable also for children.

Most popular route for families with small children is a route around the lake, 6 km long.

We suggest also a trip through the valley of Radovna. The less damanding cycling route is running through the valley of the Radovna River and Triglav National Park. It is 40 km long trail along unpaved roads. Several natural and cultural attractions along the way make this trip even more interesting.

Cycling through the most beautiful parts of Pokljuka Plateau inside the Triglav National Park is our recommendation. The plateau offers pleasant cycling in the cool shadow of the pine forests. From Pokljuka you can continue to the Lake Bohinj. If you get tired, you can return to Bled by train.

We also recommend the 30-kilometres-long route through Bled's surroundings towards the canyon of the River Sava Dolinka. The cycling trail leads to the famous Vintgar gorge. The 'must-see' natural attraction and a refreshing spot for relaxing.

There is also a dense network of forest trails on plateaus of Pokljuka and Jelovica which can satisfy more demanding mountain biking enthusiasts. The full-day tour is 85 km long with the difference in height (elevation gain/loss) 2.884 m. It starts from Bled towards the top of the Pokljuka plateau where on the Mrzli Studenec you descend into the Bohinj Valley and continue to the Jelovica plateau. In the summer you can extend the route with a ride around Bohinj Lake, which will be refreshing before the second climb to Jelovica. When returning to Bled you will pass Radovljica and Lesce.
