Take the train with your bike

If you want to take your bike on the train, you have to pay €1.50 (€3.00 for an electric bike), regardless of the distance travelled. The number of bicycles a train can carry depends on the type and occupancy of the train. Groups of more than 10 passengers travelling by bicycle must book their journey at least 8 working days in advance. Find out more about bicycle transport options on Slovenian Railways.

Car train

Passengers with private cars can easily, quickly and safely take the shuttle bus from Nova Gorica, Most na Soči and Podbrdo to Bohinjska Bistrica and back. The route will offer you magnificent views of Bohinj and the Soča Valley through the windows of your car, the experience of driving through Slovenia’s longest tunnel and a carefree journey to your destination.
