The Trans Karavanke MTB Trail extends from Jezersko to Tromeja and can also be travelled in the opposite direction. Mostly it runs along forest roads on the sunny slopes of the Karavanke Mountains, and only climbs to a peak and the border with Austria at its westernmost point, Peč, or Tromeja (the tri-border).

The trail was created within the Alpe Adria Karavanke/Karawanken project, implemented in the frame of the Cooperation Programme Interreg V-A Slovenija-Avstrija and co-financed by the European Fund for Regional Development.

The 132 km, which are divided into 5 stages, includes visits to the Slovenian Alpine Museum in Mojstrana, Tržič, the Dovžan Gorge and several popular mountain outposts (Valvasor's Lodge under Stol, Dom Pristava in Javorniški Rovt, Alpine Lodge at Zelenica, Dom na Kofcah), but the biggest prize will be beautiful views and enjoying the unspoiled nature.

The trail is suitable for well-prepared mountain bikers, as the daily stages are generally from 25 to 35 km long, but at most, 1,650 altitude meters are overcome in one day.

Markings and signposts with the Trans Karavanke sign will guide bikers and help them orientate along the trail. The use of the trail is at your own risk. Keepers of the Trans Karavanke trail are Alpine Clubs of the Alpine Association of Slovenia.

Izšla je nova lokalna promocijska zloženka občine Jesenice.

V okviru DP3 - Aktiviranje in ohranjanje naravnih potencialov Karavank, točneje podpaketa 3.2.- Naravi prijazni turistični produkti Karavank, ki temeljijo na pohodništvu, gorskem kolesarjenju in plezanju, je izšel turistični zemljevid Karavanke.

Zemljevid je namenjen turistom in obiskovalcem tega čezmejnega območja, še posebej pa pohodnikom in kolesarjem, ki jim s pomočjo zemljevida želimo promovirati Karavanke kot območje z bogatimi možnostmi za preživljanje prostega časa v naravi in jih hkrati usmerjati na uporabo obstoječih poti.

Gre za tematsko karto, v merilu 1:60.000, sestavljeno iz dveh delov, ki skupaj zajemata celotno območje Karavank, od Tromeje na zahodu pa do obronkov Zahodnega Pohorja na vzhodu. Njena osrednja vsebina so pohodne in kolesarske poti, plezalni centri ter spremljajoča ponudba. Posebnost karte je vrisana priporočena gorsko kolesarska trasa za prečenje Karavank.

Izdajatelja publikacije sta RRA Koroška, regionalna razvojna agencija za Koroško in Regionalmanagement Kärnten Dienstleistungs-GesmbH, ki sta tudi koordinirala pripravo tematskih vsebin za nanos. Pri pripravi slednjih pa so sodelovali tudi ostali projektni partnerji, z vodilnim partnerjem BSC Kranj na čelu, in drugi lokalni viri z območja projekta. Kartografske zasnove in izdelavo karte je izvedel Geodetski inštitut Slovenije. Pri navajanju topografskih napisov so dosledno upoštevali aktualno zakonodajo glede rabe dvojezične topografije na ozemlju Republike Avstrije.

Publikacija je natisnjena v nakladi 50.000 izvodov in je brezplačno na voljo v našem turistično informacijskem centru in na drugih izbranih točkah na obeh straneh meje, v digitalni obliki pa si jo lahko ogledate tukaj: Zahodne Karavanke (.jpg, 16 mb), Vzhodne Karavanke (.jpg, 18 mb).
