Day 1 - Arrival - Banovci.

Welcome to your Simply Cycling Slovenia Holiday Wine & Water Route. If you are to be collected from the airport, you will be driven to Banovci which is a small spa village in the Eastern side of Slovenia. Today is a day for relaxing and settling in. Your bikes will be waiting, cleaned, oiled and ready to go. We will have a brief meeting to discuss your routes and your capabilities so that we can adapt any routes to your needs. Our self guiding tourists will be introduced to their Garmin GPS system and maps. Tonight's accommodation is just 20 meters from the Thermal Spa at Banovci, which is perfect for those who want to spend the afternoon relaxing in the healing waters.

Day 2 - Banovci (Slovenia) - Bad Radkersburg (Austria).

A gentle ride through the rural landscape and small villages of Prlekija, crossing the Mura River into Bad Radkersburg in Austria. Bad Radkersburg is a beautiful historical yet modern town, with small handicraft businesses, shops and boutiques and with cafés, inns and numerous squares bustling with life. The friendly town square is a perfect place to sit and drink coffee or sip a cool glass of beer or local wine.

Day 3 - Bad Radkersburg - Grad.

Your route takes you through attractive countryside into the gently rolling hills of the Goricko Nature Park to the village of Grad with its large castle. This is a beautiful landscape of woodlands, small farms, orchards and vineyards.

Day 4 - Grad - Moravske Toplice.

Today continues in the beautiful and varied landscape of the Nature Park and its pretty villages. Moravske Toplice is home to one of the largest thermal spas in Slovenia, Terme 3000 which includes 22 swimming pools, indoor and out, and naturally heated. You will stay in or near the Spa hotel tonight and have full access to the pools.

Day 5 - Moravske Toplice - Kog.

To ease you into today's route, we start with a gentle downhill free wheel. We will continue through Goričko Nature park to Bukovnica lake a popular fishing and picnic spot. The area around the lake is home to the renowned energy points that are thought to have special energy that calms, relaxes, revitalises and has healing properties. This route will pass our SCS base, Slomškov Mill House , where we will stop for a short break to take a look around the Mill in its restored, yet original form. Our route then starts to climb up into the picturesque wine growing region of Kog. Your accommodation tonight is at a family run tourist farm, in an idyllic green and peaceful setting, far from crowds and the everyday rush. Everything on the menu is homemade and most of it home grown on the farm. The wine cellar is one of the most renowned in the area and is a MUST to explore.

Day 6 - Kog - Mala Nedelja.

Today you are exploring the Ljutomer-Ormož hills which are not only famous for their wines, but also for the beauty of the landscape, which according to many, ranks among the most wonderful landscapes in the world. Your tour follows the Jeruzalem Wine Road where nature glows with vivid colours in every season. Jeruzalem with its holy name, energetic vibes, wine road with top white wines, exquisite viewpoints and pilgrimage church has every right to be named a place of heaven. This is cycling at its best! Tonight's accommodation will give you the opportunity to relax those hardworking legs at a thermal spa. You can enjoy the thermal mineral water which originates from two sources at a depth of 2,273m and 1,537m. Totally pure, with nothing added, warm, hyper-thermal, high-quality water is rich in sodium, potassium and hydro carbonates.
