Motorcycling

Discover numerous panoramic trails with views on Bled and its surroundings.

Gorenjska region offers many different options for motorcyclers. We are presenting four different routes, which can be combined individually.
 

Driving through Triglav National park

Apart from other routes motorcycle routes run also through a mysterious and unique world of Triglav National Park, worth all the admiration. Let’s preserve it that way for us and for those who will visit it in the future. When visiting Triglav National Park respect the habits and the everyday life course of the local people. When visiting the National Park do not leave behind or take with you anything except beautiful memories. When going along routes follow the signs. Park the motorcycles on the designated spots. Spend the night in organised accommodations, camping outside the camping areas is not allowed. We ask motorcyclist to adjust the speed when driving on roads through protected areas thus contributing to environment protection.
