Health in Nature

While cycling in the unspoiled riverside environment of the Mura and Drava, living a life in harmony with nature will seem like the most normal thing in the world. You will have the opportunity to experience an ecological way of life, to enjoy delicious local cuisine, to relax with a glass of homemade wine and to chat in the company of your friendly hosts.

In addition to clean air, you can also enjoy numerous other natural attractions such as natural spring water sources and diverse cultural events that happen traditionally in Ptuj. Perhaps then after a short time you’ll be wishing to experience the wonders of nature once more.
