The large cycling circuit around the “Liptov sea” passes through villages and foothills surrounding the largest water reservoir in Slovakia. Exploring the characteristic Liptov villages with traditional churches alternates with rides across vast meadows offering views of the water surface, the scenery of the Low, Western, and High Tatras, as well as the Choč Mountains.

The terrain is varied but without long or overly challenging climbs. The cycling route runs either on less busy second- and third-class roads or on paved and unpaved country roads, making it suitable mainly for mountain bikes and e-bikes. Its total length places it among the more demanding routes, but you can start the circuit from any point along the route, such as from the town of Liptovský Mikuláš, or you can divide the cycling tour into multiple sections.

Enhance your trip with an easy hike to the Kvačianska and Prosiecka valleys, known for their diverse rock formations, waterfalls, and lush flora. Worth a visit is also the Celtic site and archaeological open-air museum Havránok or the remains of the Church of the Virgin Mary, the most photogenic spot on the shore of Liptovská Mara, where you can descend to the water’s edge. In the village of Svätý Kríž, you will be impressed by one of the largest wooden structures in Europe, with a capacity of nearly 6,000 people. The route also includes the Fun Park Žiarce, where you can try the steepest bobsled track in Slovakia in the summer.
