Poljanska dolina is situated along the foothills of Poljanska gora, which stretches on the western side of Črnomelj over a long ridge. The cycling path stretches through vineyards and forest for over 50 km and brings us to a completely different world of tranquillity and stillness, which resides along the Kolpa river. The path requires a physically fit cyclist due to its length, diverse terrain and a somewhat challenging tour in terms of orientation.
