This tour starts in the town of Kobarid and continues along the marked cycling trail towards the village of Robič. The section from the junction beneath the village of Svino to the village of Staro selo is routed along a gravel road or cart tracks, the section from the village of Staro selo to the village of Robič is routed along a paved road, the section along the Nadiža River to the village of Podbela is routed along cart tracks and partially through the forest, whilst the last section is routed along paved roads. From the village of Robič to the village of Podbela you cycle along the warmest Slovenian river. It is quite refreshing to jump into one of its pools.

At the village of Podbela you follow the sign directing you towards the village of Robidišče. This village, where only eight people live today, boasts beautiful Venetian architecture and the distinctive black kitchen. At the sightseeing point you can enjoy in views of Mt. Stol and Cime del Monte Musi.

From the village of Robidišče you descend along the same road you came from to the sharp bend with the turn for the village of Logje. The road descends deep to the riverbed of the Nadiža River and later ascends to the village of Logje and further to the village of Breginj.

In the village of Breginj you can visit the old village centre which was preserved after the earthquake in 1976 and which was declared a cultural monument. You continue along the descent to the valley of the Nadiža River or to the starting point of the tour in the town of Kobarid.

Author’s recommendation

A major part of the tour is routed along the river which is why we highly recommend you to bring your bathing suit.

There are plenty of opportunities to replenish your water supply along the trail.

Safety information

Caution is advised because more than a half of the route runs along the regional road which is quite busy between the village of Staro selo and the town of Kobarid.

Equipment

The route to the village of Robič runs along a paved road, from the village of Robič to the village of Podbela it runs along a gravel road, whilst the last part of the route runs along paved roads. I recommend cycling with mountain bikes, however cycling is also possible on trekking bicycles (at certain sections you might have to push your bicycle).

Tips, hints and links

During the summer months, you can use the Hop On Hop Off shuttle bus which can take up to five bicycles. If you use it, you will save six kilometres of cycling.

This bus also runs to the villages of Robidišče and Breginj.

From the village of Robidišče you can descend to the Italian side of the hill to the village of Montefosca or all the way to the valley. You continue along the regional road to the village of Robič or the town of Kobarid.

From the village of Breginj you can descend to the Ponte Vittorio Bridge across the Nadiža River which means that you will have to make another ascend later.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the centre of the town of Kobarid follow the paved road towards the village of Svino. At the left bend in front of the village, a marked trail turns from the road towards the villages of Sužid and Robič. When the trail joins the regional road Kobarid - Robič – Cividale in front of the village of Robič you continue cycling along the paved road for another kilometre until you reach the parking lot at the Nadiža bathing area.

The cycling trail to the village of Podbela is well-marked and runs along the gravel road routed along the Nadiža River. At Kamp Nadiža, beneath the village of Podbela, you leave the cart trail and cycle along the paved road to the village of Robidišče. The trail is continuously ascending. Approximately three kilometres in front of the village of Robidišče there is a turn towards the villages of Logje and Breginj. You will turn to these villages on you return.

At the village of Robidišče, the most western Slovenian village, you have to decide how to continue your trip. Besides the already mentioned option you can also descend to the village of Montefosca and further to the village of Loch where you join the regional road to the town of Kobarid.

Public transport

If you would like to shorten the tour you can take the Hop On Hop Off shuttle bus which can take you to the village of Robič, Robidišče or Breginj.

Parking is available at several parking lots in the town of Kobarid.
