The sightseeing and activities were better than we even thought!
I still can’t believe we did so much in such a short time. We really loved the tour and would do it all over again in a minute!
Thanks.

Barje expedition.
I would like personally thank Mr. Benjamin Skaleras and Cycling world for Barje expedition. Even though I have been living in Ljubljana for 40 years professionals at Kolesarski Svet team teach us that the Ljubljana Marshes is a place of great biodiversity. Since 2008, the major part of the Ljubljana Marshes, covering an area of 135 km2 (52 sq mi), has been protected as a landscape park. The most preserved parts had been already before protected as nature reserves and as natural monuments. The Ljubljana Marsh was inhabited in prehistoric times, when it was a shallow lake. Prehistoric pile dwellings and the oldest wooden wheel in the world[3] are among the most notable archeological findings from the marshland. Since 2011, the area of pile dwellings near Ig has been protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Thanks again for great time and best wishes in the future, Miha
