Bio hotel St. Daniel is located in the heart of Slovenian Karst region and offers guests a holiday of a special kind. Those who want to change the world should start with themselves, say owners Nina and Miran. At the Hotel St. Daniel, you can rent top-quality electric bicycles, and we are also at your disposal with the rest of the RockVelo cycling offer of guided tours & extra bikes.
The Karst is an unspoiled region, which together with the neighbouring Vipava valley, Brkini and Goriška Brda offers wonderful opportunities for cycling of all kinds! We have prepared three cycling routes for you, starting at the Bio Hotel St. Daniel and are suitable for cycling with mountain electric bikes that you can rent from them. While cycling, stop at our BIKE | STOP | ENJOY points, where they have a special offer for cyclists. Download a free app that will guide you through the trails:
Passing Štanjel, you continue your way into the valley of the river Branica, from where you ascend to Vrtovče. There you have a view of the Vipava Valley, Čaven and the main point of interest - the Vipavski Križ. There you can relax at our BIKE-STOP-ENJOY point Darovi Vipavske, which offers local products and tastings. The trip continues along the river Vipava and through beautiful vineyards. We recommend another stop at the BIKE STOP ENJOY point Molendini Summer Bar in Manče, where you will take care of thirst and hunger :) Two more climbs and you're home!
A slightly longer cycling trip takes you through quiet karst villages. The highlight of the trip is a visit to the lookout point on Cerje, where the view spreads over the entire Vipava valley to the Alps and on a beautiful day all the way to Venice. At Cerje you have the opportunity for refreshments, and then you return to Komen on macadam paths and back to the starting point.
With RockVelo, we have set up BIKE | STOP | ENJOY cycling points in the Vipava valley, where they have a special offer for you:
At all points, you can safely park your bikes on special stands and recharge your E-bikes!
