Ljubljana, green and active

Climb to the top of a hill, on foot or by bike. Breathe in the freshness in the midst of green forests, by a pool or on the golf course.

Ljubljana is one of the rare capital cities where you can paddle through the heart of the city on a stand-up paddleboard or in a canoe and see the sights, while also discovering the varied flora and fauna that inhabit the riverbanks.

It is one of the friendliest cities in the world for cyclists, with a total of around 230 km of well-maintained cycle paths. The city is relatively flat and just the right size to make cycling a pleasant way to explore its streets and squares.

Ljubljana is also one of the greenest cities in the world, where you can find nature right in the city centre, while the surrounding area offers a wide choice of days out in the countryside, since hiking trails criss-cross the entire region. It also offers you the unique opportunity to set out on a country hike from the city itself. The network of hiking trails actually begins in the city centre and becomes increasingly dense the further out you get.
