This idyllic cycle route delivers you from the city centre and the busy traffic and takes you to the foothills of the Gorjanci mountain range. Here you can get an even more authentic experience of the little villages, where you can still marvel at the typical architectural features of Bela krajina’s countryside. The route follows the busy main road between Dol and Suhor but then takes us among the vineyards, fields, and meadows.
