Hiking and biking trails

Ljubljana's surrounding areas offer a wealth of opportunities for scenic trips. The entire region is crisscrossed with hiking and biking trails.

Apart from taking short trips to spots popular with local walkers and cyclists, such as Šmarna Gora, Katarina, Kurešček and Zaplana, you can go on lengthy explorations of the region as individual trails, generally well waymarked, can be combined into longer ones.

Ljubljana region is also the crossing point of two European long distance paths, the E6 path from Finland to the Adriatic Sea and the E7 path from the Spanish-Portuguese border to Hungary. The two paths cross on the Rutarska planota plateau, in the village of Predgozd near Velike Lašče.

Apart from road cycling routes, the Ljubljana region also offers off-road mountain bike trails. Mountain bikers are recommended to keep to waymarked biking trails and ride with caution.

Particularly interesting for hikers and bikers is the circular path around Ljubljana, known as the Path of Remembrance and Comradeship, the Velika Planina high mountain plateau, well known for its unusual landforms and Europe's oldest shepherds' village, and Ljubljana Marshes.
