About Triglav National Park
Triglav National Park is the only national park in Slovenia. It was established in its modern form in 1981 and is located in the northwestern part of the country, respectively the southeastern part of the Alpine massif. Mount Triglav, the highest peak of Julian Alps, stands almost in the middle of the national park. From it the valleys spread out radially, supplying water to two large river systems with their sources in the Julian Alps: the Soča and the Sava, flowing to the Adriatic and Black Sea, respectively.

First day ride take us from Kranjska Gora to town of Mojstrana and into Vrata Valley. Vrata is most famous and also the most popular alpine valley. At the upper end it “crashes” into the wide Triglav north wall, and a few-minute ride from the parking lot will be rewarded with a splendid view of the wall. You will feel its power even if you don’t have the intention to hike further towards Triglav, and have a look at the magnificent symbol of Slovenia from up close without special effort. On the way to Vrata a stop-over at Peričnik waterfall is a must. After the brake the ride will take us back to Mojstrana and trough Radovna valley. The Radovna valley is nested between the Pokljuka and Mežaklja alpine plateaus and hides a rich history of iron working and forestry and great natural beauty.
