Kamp Tura is offering a beautiful view over the entire Vipava valley, and is an excellent starting point for active explorers! Cycling and hiking trails, opportunities for free climbing and more could be listed. You can rent top-quality electric bicycles at the camp, and we are also available with the rest of the RockVelo cycling offer of guided tours & extra bikes.
The Vipava valley and the Karst offer wonderful opportunities for cycling of all kinds! We have prepared three cycling routes for you, starting at Camp Tura, which are suitable for cycling with mountain and electric bicycles, which 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:
You start cycling with a pleasant descent to the centre of Vipava. You reach the Napoleon Bridge over the Vipava River via the rolling wine-growing hills past Zemono Mansion. From there it is not far to the medieval town of Vipavski Križ, where you stop at the BIKE | STOP | ENJOY point Darovi Vipavske. On the way back you`ll cycle along the river Vipava with some of the most beautiful views of the Vipava valley.
The picturesque cycle path starts with an easy introduction on quiet rural paths. Then you climb to the famous village of Goče with typical Vipava architecture and many arched cellars. You can extend the ascent to the village of Erzelj by visiting the lookout church of Marija Snežna. A (careful) descent back to the vineyards and return to Vipava awaits you. On the way you can refresh yourself at our BIKE STOP ENJOY points in Manče (Molendini Summer bar) or Vipava (Faladur Bistro Wine Bar & Shop)
A more demanding cycling trip made easy by E-bike! First, you will cycle along the side paths to the village of Podnanos, where the ascent to the Eco hut begins. We recommend a refreshment stop at this beautiful location (check out the opening hours during the week!). From there, continue cycling across the Nanos plateau to the Abram Farm rest area. There the road turns back into the valley. Since the ascent to Nanos is long and steep, an electric bike will be the most suitable for it!
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!
