Riding an e-bike comfortably along beautiful Vipava river and sticking to the roads less traveled, you’ll discover the rich history and vivid landscape of this amazing wine county. Tasting the best ice cream in “Little Venice”, searching for Napoleon’s lost cannonball, and unlocking the mystery of king Theodosis – there’s much to take in on The River Trail E-bike tour!
This guided E-bike tour starts in the town of Ajdovščina, next to the Tourist info center (TIC). We’ll visit medieval remains of Roman fortress and continue our tour along the river. Our first stop is in the charming town of Vipava, also called a “Little Venice”. It’s a perfect time for an ice cream, the best in the valley. In the next kilometers, we see some of the best wine growing locations in the valley. Crossing Napoleons bridge starts our hunt for his missing cannonball. The mystery will unfold when reaching the medieval stronghold of Vipavski Križ where we stop for a coffee and relaxed stroll through tiny streets. Another stretch of cycling and we’re at the end of this tour enjoying a magnificent panorama over the valley and traditional Slovenian dessert “štruklji”. It’s a good day!
