- Wildlife & Nature
Slow down in Slovenia. Take time to marvel at snowcapped peaks and expansive river valleys. Pause to notice the brilliant blues of Balkan lakes. Resist the urge to rush toward Croatia's coastline. Let its beauty unfold as you ride to the Adriatic Sea. Then linger to watch the sunset light it all up. Ride as fast as you'd like, but know that there's no need to hurry here
