Our starting point for the cycling tour will be Tavčar mansion in Visoko from the 17th century. From the imposing bronze statue of the writer, which faces his birthplace – Poljane, we will ride our bikes along the flat macadam road to the village of Hotavlje. From here, the terrain will be a bit steeper, but using e-bikes, we will reach the top of Škofja Loka Hills (Slajka) quite easily. Now the real fun begins. We will cycle through a variety of terrain, less and more demanding cycling routes, with a panoramic view over the entire Poljanska valley. We will arrive at Koča na Ermanovcu (Mountain Hut on Ermanovec) and continue our cycling tour along the historic Rapallo border, discussing stories from the previous century. Then a long asphalt descent will lead us through the valley of Kopačnica, which is known for its natural source of hot water – here will be a unique opportunity for refreshment after an active day.
On the way to the starting point of our cycling tour, we will stop at the Pustotnik farm, where we are proud of our long tradition of making Slovenian cheese and dairy products. Friendly locals will guide us through the process of making cheese and prepare a tasting of their best products. After the tasting, we will return to Tavčar mansion in Visoko and end our adventure.
