Biking and Hiking

For an active holiday of discovery

Whether you prefer to immerse yourself in the unspoilt nature of the forests on foot, hiking, or riding your road bike or mountain bike on asphalt or dirt tracks, Hotel Franz is the ideal starting point for exploring the surroundings and for an active holiday of discovery.

The Carso is the perfect destination for those who like to get around on a mountain bike: it offers wonderful scenic trails and dirt roads that overlook the sites of the First World War. For those who prefer gentle slopes to be explored by road bike or on foot, discovering the local food and wine, Collio is the ideal choice.

Lovers of history and local traditions can also reach the towns of Gorizia, Trieste, and Grado, the famous Island of the Sun, which offers a safe route on cycle paths or quiet, mostly flat roads.

Hotel Franz offers its guests a convenient luggage transfer and dispatch service to make your arrival at the hotel as smooth as possible. It is also equipped to carry out small repairs to your bicycles and has a secure Bike Garage with a key to store them at the end of the day.

You will also have the option of reinforced breakfasts and pocket breakfast or lunch, also for those with intolerances or special needs, so that you can face the day with the right energy.

For those who prefer to travel light, Hotel Franz provides 4 city bikes free of charge, ideal for tackling easy routes. If, on the other hand, you wish to tackle more demanding routes, we will be happy to organise the hire of a suitable bike for you in collaboration with our most trusted partners and provide you with useful and valuable advice.
