Cycling

The Cerkno hills (Slov. Cerkljansko hribovje) are perfect for cyclists, since they boast remarkably pristine nature and a huge number of picturesque trails. You can choose from both easy and undemanding trails as well as long and more strenuous ones, for which good physical fitness is recommended. Climbs to nearby summits will be rewarded with unforgettable views and those with a need for speed will be thrilled with the descents, as well.
