Diverse Biking Trails
The diverse landscape of the Bela krajina region is framed by the Gorjanci mountain chain and the Kočevski Rog plateau.
There are excellent family cycle routes to choose from but there is also no shortage of more demanding trails for more daring cyclists. 15 marked biking trails are very diverse in terms of terrain and level of difficulty.
You are welcome to attend any of the cycling events taking place throughout the year. Every September you can compete in the race to Mirna Gora, the Bela krajina’s highest summit. September is also when the race to the Krašnji vrh hill takes place. In June you can partake in the family-friendly biking trip »Goni kolo« (Put the Wheels in Motion) that is a part of the Jurjevanje in Bela krajina folklore festival. In the month of blossoms, the month of May, you are welcome to participate in the traditional cycling trip from Ljubljana to Metlika and attend Metlika’s traditional festival of wine Vinska Vigred.
