Families, couples, individuals, recreational cyclists, those more prepared and with a desire for more (mountain) challenges at your own pace, ride your bike through the hilly landscape of the Sava River valley. Explore the rich cultural heritage, admire nature and reward yourself with beautiful views. Sevnica and its surroundings can be discovered on official cycle paths of various levels of difficulty, which are suitable for a pleasant family trip or a more demanding adventure tour.
You can get to the starting points by train (Loka pri Zidanim Mostu, Breg, Sevnica, and Blanca). Competitive cyclists, fans of mountain biking (Lisca), and downhill enthusiasts are also welcome here. On the outskirts of the city, there is a pump track, which at almost 1000 km2 offers the opportunity to develop general motor skills and bicycle skills.
More cycling routes can be found at www.bikeridewalk.si andwww.kdsevnica.com. At our tourist information center, we will be happy to share with you the most reliable and interesting ideas for your experience of cycling through Sevnica and the Posavje Region.
Breathe in the fresh air and feel the pulse of the Posavje hills and countryside. The hilly landscapes on both sides of the Sava River are interspersed with many trails of varying difficulty, which are calling for you to discover them. Follow the marked hiking trails to explore the hills, which have a long tradition in Sevnica.
This tradition is closely connected with Lisca (948 m), one of the hills in Posavje with the most beautiful views. Several marked mountain trails lead to the top of Lisca, including a via ferrata that leads up its southern side. In addition to Veliko Kozje (993 m), Lovrenc (459 m) and Ješivec, Lisca is one of the peaks in the municipality of Sevnica, which are connected between Kum and Bohor by the Zasavje mountain trail.
For nature walk enthusiasts, there are many hiking trails that offer beautiful views, as well as cultural and natural beauty combined in themed hiking trails.

In ancient times, the Sava River used to be one of the most important transport and connecting routes of Slovenia. It is a habitat for many animal and plant species, and it makes Sevnica a very popular tourist destination. Today, in the lower reaches, the Sava River boasts one of the longest, most beautiful, and richest fishing routes, in Europe. With the construction of a hydroelectric power plant and reservoirs, it once again offers the opportunity for navigation and exercise on the water. Let this longest Slovenian river impress you as well. More information about fishing on the Sava and Mirna rivers and ponds in the municipality of Sevnica can be found at www.ribiskekarte.si/rd-sevnica, and more about sailing at www.obcina-sevnica.si/plovba.
From The Air
Almost everyone of us has wanted to fly freely like a bird at least once in their life. The wind in your hair and under your feet only a wide open view of the Sava River valley, hills, orchards, fields and meadows, here and there a small village, and a church on a hill. Seing Sevnica from the air is a very special experience that will not disappoint you. At least if you are not afraid of heights.
Lisca, with its geographical location and favorable climate, has been attracting fans of paragliding and hang-gliding since the early 90s. Three launch spots at the peak of Lisca offer the possibility of flying for beginners and for those more experienced.
