Bicycle Tours in Slovakia

Bicycle tour in Slovakia – Amber Trail – Banska StiavnicaTake your bicycle tour
in Slovakia

Slovakia is a land of breath-taking, wild natu-
re and panoramas, small, rustic villages     
rooted in folk tradition, churches, castles,
numerous UNESCO World Heritage sites,
incredible historical heritage plus safe
backroads with good surfaces for cycling.
Bicycle tours in Slovakia
Romantic Slovakia from Bratislava to Banska Stiavnica From Danube to Tatra mountains
The rich nature of the mountains, river
valleys and forests still contains bears,
wolves and lynx, although it is unlikely you will meet one of these on your tour! All this makes cycling in Slovakia perfect for a varied
vacation.
We offer three bicycle tours in Slovakia:

Easy Tours
 
Moderate Tours
 
Challenging Tours
Danube Trail
From Bratislava to Sturovo
Easy - bike tour follows a course of a river, usually downstream; the terrain profile is almost level, the route can be easily traveled by beginner bikers.
Romantic Slovakia
From Bratislava to Banska Stiavnica
From Danube to Tatra mountains
From Bratislava to Dolny Kubin
Moderate – the bike tour is evenly distributed over
hilly terrain and less demanding flat parts;
1 or 2 more challenging
days of ascents and
descents (crossing a
mountain range), the
route can be managed by
recreational cyclists who
ride regularly at home.
Challenging - only 1 or 2 easy days; the rest of the route is challenging in terms
of terrain: several highland
or mountain ranges to be crossed during the tour, with long, steep climbs. The route is suitable for well-trained recreational cyclists or accomplished sports enthusiasts, who will enjoy the very difficulty of the terrain.

Bicycle trails in Slovakia – surfaces you will encounter

All bicycle tours follow a solid surface (tarmac), and are well suited for a hybrid bike.
Only a few short sections go over easy terrain with fine gravel surface. For this reason
we don’t recommend using a road bike. In Slovakia there is a dense network of small 3rd class roads ideal for cycling. The surface is of good quality and there is little traffic. If a cyclist should cross a busy road, the route guide will always warn you of the situation.

Bicycle tours in Slovakia - daily sections

The average riding distance per day is about 50 km / 32 miles. We don’t recommend
exceeding 70 km / 45 miles per day. There is not enough time then to see noteworthy sites, which would be a great shame. Our desire is to offer a balanced tour, with ample time for you to absorb what’s going on around you and to relax.
