CARSO Trail leads its riders to the discovery of a complex and fascinating border territory, the karst. Here, the humid dew of the Mediterranean shrubland sweetens the atmosphere, and the trails cross white limestone fields.
CARSO TRAIL: WHAT IT IS
CARSO Trail is an off-road unsupported bikepacking adventure across the karst. Get ready to discover the harsh beauty of a region framed between the Adriatic sea and the Julian Alps. Geographically divided by the Italian-Slovenian frontier, the karst and its people share common roots and strong bonds with neighbors. Explore the complexity of this border territory. Here, languages and traditions mix across the frontier to form a shared border identity. Cohabitation is the key word of this region: two worlds collide, each understanding and influencing the unicity of the other.
