Drava cycling route
Drava Cycling Route is considered as one of the most beautiful cycling routes in Europe due to its natural splendours and cultural diversity. The 510-km route stretches from the source of the Drava River in Toblach, Italy, crosses Austria to Slovenia and runs further on to Croatia where it terminates at the confluence of the Mura and Drava Rivers next to Legrad. A section of 145 km runs through Slovenia, mostly down less busy local roads and regulated cycling routes. The Slovenian part of the route is suitable for cyclists in good shape due to different types of surface and quite a demanding ascent between Podvelka and Lovrenc na Pohorju. Trekking bikes and e-bikes are recommended. One of the most interesting adventures to experience along the route is traditional rafting on the Drava River. The Drava Cycling Route was certified with 5 stars out of 5 according to the ADFC criteria due to its regulated trail, safety and accessibility.
