Cycletaurus

Date: 01/07/2019

Cycletaurus is a tour operator that organizes day excursions and holydays in e-MTbike with dedicated guides to discover the most authentic scenic trails in North East Italy

The goal is to connect the territory to a world of explorers by offering itineraries with touristic values passing through off the beaten and unexpected paths. The region of Friuli Venezia Giulia has remained outside mass tourism, and it’s a keeper of a naturalistic heritage and a cultural tradition still to be discovered. The enormous geographical variety allows to enjoy ever-changing views that from the Alps turn into the sea. Riding with local guides who know all the regional uniqueness means to live a land and not just to visit it.

The convenience of traveling with specialized guides is to be able to enjoy a relaxed and flexible experience, without worrying about programs and logistics. Furthermore, the Cycletaurus offer a fleet of e-mountainbikes with top-of-the-range components, easy to drive and electric, so that you can have an extra boost only when you want it and without struggling!

Trieste Karst Plateau Tour

An off road trail along the incredible cliffs of the Karst plateau that offer the best view of the Gulf of Trieste. The karst is a unique environment in the world, made of white rock, red earth and green sinkholes, which develops steeply over the Adriatic Sea. The bucolic paths, dotted with suggestive viewpoints, will reveal the karst nature in all its excellence among marvelous natural terraces, sharp crests and a picture of colors of Mediterranean plants and karst flowers. Sea, rock and nature will be the undisputed elements, but not only, because the Trieste Karst is also a destination of taste. We will stop to appreciate the genuine flavors of an unchanged tradition, which bring us back to the past and to the naturalness.
