This very popular self-guided cycling trip takes you from the capital Ljubljana through Slovenia's amazing western Karst region to the sparkling Slovenian Coast. It's ideal for cyclists of average fitness. Cycle your way across the mysterious land of the limestone karst, riddled with caves below and dotted with castles and churches above. along the way you'll visit one of Slovenia's most extensive caves systems and its biggest feat of medieval engineering, the Predjama Castle which has been built high up in the rockface of a 123-metre high cliff. You can sample sumptuous red wines from the rich karst soil and taste the delicious cured ham that has been air-dried by the ferocious Bora wind. Finally, glide down from the Karst plateau to the sparkling Adriatic Sea; there is something for everyone.

• Start your cycling trip with a visit to the capital, Ljubljana and take a walk up to the hilltop castle for the best view of Ljubljana.

• Sip sumptuous red wine amid glistening vineyards and sample the delectable food that complements it.
