Bike Tours for every ability level
For the cyclist, Slovakia resembles a low mountain range with a hilly landscape in many areas. Slight ascents and descents are relatively common, but fortunately steep stretches are very rare and the exception. As a result, the country offers a very balanced mixture of stress and relief over longer distances, which does not overwhelm even untrained riders. The foothills of the Carpathians extend into a large part of the East, in the West the largely flat Vienna Basin and the Pannonian Plain spread out. The capital Bratislava is also located here.

The Climate in Slovakia
The Slovak Cuisine
Due to its geographic location, Slovak cuisine is heavily influenced by surrounding countries such as Hungary, Austria and the Czech Republic. Traditionally, Slovaks prefer meat, potatoes and vegetables. Above all, the beloved sauerkraut cannot be dispensed with there. The cams (‘Nocken’) are just as popular. Therefore, the two favourite side dishes were simply combined and the delicious sauerkraut dumplings were created. These are served in different variants in the regions of Slovakia. However the national dish is ‘Bryndzové halušky’, in German ‘Brimsennocken’ with feta cheese and bacon. Are these dishes new to you? Then just taste all these delicacies on your next cycle holiday in Slovakia!
