It’s hard to put into words the experience that Blaž provided! Firstly, he is an excellent, very knowledge guide. His love of nature, adventure and his country is contagious and must be experienced if you are visiting Bled. I felt very safe and well looked after. The tour was about 5 hours and we ventured through parts of Triglav national park with some of the most beautiful autumnal landscape I’ve ever seen. We stopped at a local farm and restaurant with the option to try some typical Slovenian dishes! I can honestly say I will never forget this experience and look forward to returning 🙂

We had the greatest day with Blaz! A highlight of our time spent in Lake Bled. It was a challenging bike ride although his bikes handled the roads perfectly! The bikes were in excellent condition and easy to use! The pedal assist was nice to have on the hills! We strolled through villages and saw Triglav National park. Had a small picnic (local salmi and cheese) by a small beautiful lake. Honestly I loved this part the best because we had some great conversation with Blaz! He was full of interesting facts and taught us about the Slovenian culture. Thanks Blaz!! We also got to meet some of his best friends when we stopped for our Bled cake! Blaz is now considered our friend in Slovenia!

Jen B

An absolute must for anyone visiting Slovenia. I am not normally one to rate tours as they can be very standard and generic but this tour is a one off experience that you will not undergo if you were not with a local.
Blaz took us on the most fun and incredible bike ride suited to our ability and needs. He took us to all the beautiful places that tourists do not get to so you get to experience all of the beautiful areas to yourself. We met some local people along the way, learnt about the local culture and ways, ate the local foods & drinks.
Blaz himself was a incredibly caring man who will look after you for the day. Great conversation along the route.
Thanks Blaz 🙂

Day 1 – Ljubljana to Bled Lake

The countryside route from Ljubljana to Bled Lake takes you through the charming landscapes of Slovenia. As you leave Ljubljana, you’ll drive through rolling hills and small villages. The road meanders alongside the emerald-green Sava River, offering glimpses of the Alpine scenery in the distance. As you approach Bled, the terrain becomes more mountainous, and you’ll catch your first sight of the iconic Bled Castle perched on a hill over the lake. 

Day 2 – Bled Lake and Bohinj Lake 

Starting in Bled, pedal through the charming town and follow the scenic path that leads you towards the lush Pokljuka Plateau. Ascend through dense forests and alpine meadows, where the invigorating mountain air accompanies you. Upon reaching Pokljuka, revel in panoramic vistas of the Julian Alps before descending towards the serene Bohinj Lake. Traverse the picturesque countryside, with glimpses of traditional Alpine architecture and pristine nature, as you approach the crystal-clear waters of Bohinj Lake—a perfect culmination to cycling journey. We would finish with a circle ride back to Bled. 

Day 3 – Bled Lake to Jezersko

 Your route winds through the Slovenian countryside, guiding you along well-paved roads with scenic views of rolling hills and charming villages. As you pedal, you’ll gradually ascend towards Jezersko. The valley is known for its shepherd’s huts, where local shepherds engage in traditional sheep farming. The valley is dotted with crystal-clear lake Planšar Lake, creating postcard-perfect scenes. 

Day 4 – Bled Lake to Jamnik and Soriška Planina

The first and still ultimate training grounds and home of one of many Slovenian cycling champions – Matej Mohorič. Begin your journey from the enchanting Bled Lake, pedaling through the charming town of Radovljica and ascending towards the iconic Jamnik church. As you approach Jamnik, the landscape opens up, revealing panoramic views of the picturesque church perched on a hill with the stunning backdrop of the mountains. Continuing to Soriška Planina pasture, the route meanders through serene countryside, with gradual climbs leading to the alpine plateau. 

Day 5 – Bled Lake to Kranjska Gora

Starting in Bled, cycle through the enchanting Radovna Valley, surrounded by lush greenery and the soothing flow of the Radovna River. As you pedal, enjoy the views of the Julian Alps in the distance. The road leads you to next glacial valley framed by towering peaks. Marvel at the grandeur of the Triglav North Face, the highest mountain in Slovenia. Arriving in Kranjska Gora, you’ll be greeted by this charming alpine resort town nestled against the backdrop of the Julian Alps.

Day 6 – Kranjska Gora queen stage

From Kranjska Gora to conquer the iconic Vršič Pass and Mangart Saddle. Including cobblestone switchbacks, built in 1st world war by russian prisoners in Slovenia. Reach Soča Valley and continue through epic tunnels on the highest paved road of Slovenia. Before finish in Kranjska Gora, see the place where Giro d’Italia was decided in 2023, with a win of Slovenian Champion – Primož Roglič.

My husband and I had a fantastic experience with Blaz and Discover By Bike. Blaz arranged for transports, lodging, bike rentals and some guided tours. Everything was top notch and Blaz was a terrific guide. He is kind, knowledgeable, skilled, thoughtful and fun. I can’t recommend him more highly!

We had a wonderful afternoon ride with Blaz. The weather in October was a bit cold but we had a great day out discovering the areas around Bled. Blaz was generous to share insights on Bled and Slovenia and was so easy to work with in setting up the excursion. We will book again with Blaz when we return to this beautiful country. Highly recommend!

We hadn't booked any bikes for our stay in Bled, the next day Blaz provided us with two high-quality e-bikes at short notice and took the time to suggest a great tour. Thank you for the prompt service, Blaz!
Just amazing!

Blaz is a fantastic tour guide! He took us on trails around the area with amazing views and varied terrain/difficulty during our 3 day mountain biking tour. He took the time beforehand to learn what we were interested in doing, our skill level, and our comfort on a bike and then really delivered! You can tell that he’s passionate about what he does and wants to make sure you have a great time. We learned a lot about Slovenia from him and would love to come back for another tour. Book with him - you’ll be so glad you did. Thanks a bunch, Blaz!

We had a wonderful day with Blaz exploring the local area around Bled and learning some of its history. Blaz was a delightful guide who not only introduced us to the beautiful Slovenian countryside, but also to a new and gentler way of looking at life! The quality of the bikes was outstanding and Blaz took great care of us as a couple of riders with only moderate bike riding experience.We had a great day and can highly recommend Blaz and his bike tours.

We just did a wonderful travel with Blaz! We are a group of ten friends from Brazil. He planned for us a tailor made travel . From Italy, to Slovenia and finishing in Croatia. Everything perfect planned by Blaz. He gave us an assistance during this 7 days , taking the luggages, reserving the dinner, hiring the hotels and the bikes and everything else.. And also organized a day trip to the capital of Slovenia Liubliana, Lake Bled and Postojna Cave. I highly recomend his service!!!

Took a guided tour last week with Blaz and I was delighted. Very knowledgeable and a really nice guy. We had a great chat about Slovenia which he is rightly very proud of. Bikes are good quality and well maintained. I highly recommend this tour company. David from Ireland.

What a great afternoon we had with Blaz! While visiting Ljublana for a few days (interrail) we wanted to find an opportunity to see the national park and Bled. Super to do this together with Blaz and on the e-mountainbikes of Discover By Bike. Blaz is very flexible, knows a lot about the history and culture and shares this with his guests. He even took a picnic with him to share some local food while we were at the lake.Amazing countryside, fantastic trip, and by using e-mountain bikes you can make the tour as heavy as you like (challenge: who uses the least amount of battery during the trip 😉).We had a tour of 4,5 hours and really really enjoyed it! Would recommend this to all.

After a week working in Ljubljana, I had a day to spare before flying home. As a keen cyclist, I found a route I’d like to ride and then contacted Doscover By Bike to see if they would be able to hire me a bike and also a guide to ride with, as I wasn’t familiar with the area. They were incredible! They checked out my idea for a route and improved on it, suggested the direction we should do it, and Blaz set a friendly pace.I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

We spent the most fantastic morning with Blaz on Ebikes leaving from Bled and into the surroundings. The bikes were outstanding and he knows all sorts of interesting stuff about the area. He also supplied lunch of local produce. Definitely recommend anyone to spend time riding with this company if you are visiting Bled.

Just returned from a fantastic trip with Blaz. He is very knowledgeable about the local area and I would never have seen as much as I did if I had gone alone. He was very flexible and arranged the trip for me at very short notice. The surrounding area is stunning and the bikes were top of the range. I can’t recommend Blaz more highly!

Amazing tour and company riding with Blaž! We truly got to know Slovenia much more during our adventurous ride as he took us through the country, local spots, history, and mountains while sharing so many wonderful stories with us. We already look forward to coming back for more!

We recently took an e-bike trip as a part of our teambuilding event in Kranjska Gora, and it was really an excellent experience. Although the team members had various biking experiences and background, the route was doable for everybody. With interesting and funny facts about the area which our tour guide Blaž told us along the way, the biking trip turned into funny, interesting, and really relaxed biking experience. Highly recommended 😊 to all who wants to have awesome time on a bike.

We went on a bit different tour with Blaž - to the coast of Croatia (Istria). The seaside is amazing, and he is making sure that everyone in the group is doing well. The tour was a mixture of countryside, seaside and old city centres. You don’t need to be a big fan of cycling (I’m not), but the bike tour was really great experience. I would recommend this tour to a variety of people. 😁😊
