Fun & Easy Tour

We like to cycle with our children. That` s why we mapped out this great & easy ride for you and your little cyclists! It takes you on very quiet gravel country roads without any traffic. You`ll ride along the river which is pleasant also on the hottest of the summer days. Visiting the city of Ajdovščina, kids will love to stop at the playground. It`s a perfect time to have some ice cream too,  as the place next to the park serves the best one around! For just a quick lunch or extended food tasting, visit a restaurant called Faladur and try some of the best Vipava Valley`s delicacies.
