You don't need a car to explore Kranj and the surrounding countryside. We would like to invite you to get to know the city and the places around it in a more nature-friendly way, by bike. This is all about a genuine contact with nature with plenty of opportunities to observe the surroundings and countless possibilities for sightseeing, so it is a very special experience. We have 5 suggestions for you, so you’ll know where to start.

 

Cycle path to Preddvor along the Kokra river and past the Brdo estate

This pleasant cycle path with lots of variety is mostly on field roads with little traffic and enables you to enjoy the natural beauty along the way. There is an educational trail along the Kokra River, then it goes past the Brdo estate and all the way to Preddvor. The trip is ideal for hot summer days as the Kokra River and the Črnava Lake in Preddvor offer excellent refreshment.

 

Cycling to Jezersko and back

Jezersko – this is a pearl with a special charm due to the unique location of its valley in the mountains, the hospitality of its people, local food and pristine nature. A visit to Jezersko should really be part of your travel plan and you will definitely not regret it. The most active among you can also cycle from Kranj all the way to Jezersko. The route is on the main road, so we recommend taking this cycling trip during the week when the roads are less busy.

 

Kranj–Hrastje–Voklo–Voglje–Vodice–Kranj
