Program

Riding for five full days, you will cover many areas of this beautiful country and even manage to cross several borders. Canary Motorcycle Tours have incorporated a ride on the famous Adriatic Coast Road with an overnight stay in Croatia.

When riding in the stunning Julian Mountains in north west Slovenia, you will have another overnight stay on the border with Austria so you can pop into Italy and Austria too.

Slovenia lies in the heart of Europe where the Alps and Mediterranean meet. To the north is Austria, to the east Hungary, to the south Croatia, and to the west Italy. Two million people live in Slovenia on just over 20,000 square kilometers.

With four types of fabulous landscapes - alpine, sub-Mediterranean, Dinaric, and Pannonian, Slovenia is a perfect summer biking destination.

Canary Motorcycle Tours tours are ideal for those riders who want to tour in Europe but can’t find the two or three weeks they need. Fly out, ride for three days, have a rest day to do your own thing, ride two more full days and fly home - perfect.

Want to bring your own bike? No problem! Canary Motorcycle Tours have devised a package for you too with accommodation and guided tour. If you don’t want to ride solo, come ride with Canary Motorcycle Tours.

Location

Brestanica, or until 1953 Rajhenburg, is your base for the week. It is a quaint market in the Municipality of Krsko, situated in the south east of Slovenia on the river Sava. In recent decades, the settlement has been expanding along the Sava River, especially to the north, into the wider part of the valley towards the Senovo, which functionally merges with Brestanica into one whole.

The rich historical background, favorable location and cultural and natural sights in the place and its immediate surroundings give Brestanica the opportunity to develop tourism further.

For the purpose of promoting tourism, the Brestanica Tourist Association operates in the locality, which organizes cultural events in the locality and promotes the place online. Brestanica also operates the annual Brestanica swimming pool.

With its location in a small basin, it offers excellent access to the surrounding peaks. The most popular hiking spot is the nearby, well-hours-away Mohor peak with a church on the Sremski hills.

The Mačkovci ponds, artificially made, which combine over three large ponds with a diameter of more than half a kilometer, are of particular interest. They lie spread out among the forests of the surrounding hills, with the largest being fisheries and catering (restaurant).

Canary Motorcycle Tours have selected this for the base as it gives a local, not touristy, flavor to the tours. It is situated close enough to Croatia to incorporate a second country into the tour. The locals are friendly and welcoming and the town has a relaxed and comforting feel about it.

Food

The hotel owner is a fully trained chef and breakfast and home cooked evening meals are included in the package. Traditional food of Slovenia is local produced cuisine. The guesthouse has a small vegetable plot and much of the food is cooked fresh from their garden.

Slovenian food is also influenced by the neighboring countries' cuisines: Austria, Italy, Croatia, and Hungary. Its basis is cereals, dairy products, meat (especially pork), sea and fresh-water fish, vegetables, beans, olives, and grape.
