A hairy experience in one of Europe best cycling cities, Ljubljana’s moustache bike tour follows in the footsteps of three of its most noteworthy residents – who all happened to have impressive whiskers, just like your guides. You’ll visit landmark museums but also vintage bars and other quirky sights.

The idea was the brainchild of Ljubljana Tourism and savvy Slovene marketing agency NeaCulpa, who realised a bike tour celebrating the lives and idiosyncrasies of Jože Plečnik, Ivan Cankar and Rihard Jakopič (an architect, a writer and a painter) was the best way to see the capital on two wheels.

The tour meets at Ljubljana’s Slovenian Tourist Information Centre. The rest is a secret. However, suffice it to say, while cycling with a trio of irreverent, moustachioed tour guides working for Moustache Tour Ljubljana you’ll get to explore some of the city’s most historic nooks and crannies.

Highlights include vintage bars and landmark museums, as well as enjoying a slice of potica cake. Yum.

The tour runs from April to September. It costs a measly €45 or, if you look at it another way, just €15 per moustache. Not too bad.
