The Cave Cycling Route takes you through the wonderful world of the Karst and five of the larger or better known caves in the Postojna area: the world-famous Postojna Cave, with the cave train running into its interior, Otok Cave – just 500 metres long but extremely beautiful, the Cave below Predjama Castle, where you can take part in one of several underground adventure programmes, Pivka Cave and the Black Cave – these last two connected by a tunnel. For those who enjoy old stories, we recommend visiting the little churches along the route. For those who would like to try other sports as well as cycling, the campsite by Pivka Cave offers basketball, beach volleyball, tennis and a swimming pool.
This route is most suitable for mountain bikes, since it mainly follows unpaved roads and forest paths. Visits to all the above caves are possible by prior arrangement.
