Safety information

The trail runs partly on a cycling route path from Bohinjska Bistrica onwards along the national road, so caution will be needed. Be especially careful on the descent from Bohinjsko sedlo Pass in case you return to the starting point along the same route.

Turn-by-turn directions

The tour starts in the village of Ribčev Laz in front of the Bohinj Info Centre. From the parking lot in front of the info centre, turn left towards Lake Bohinj. When you reach the bridge, turn right and cross it. You will leave the famous Church of St. John the Baptist. Continue along the road to the village of Stara Fužina and at the first crossroad turn right over the bridge. After crossing, keep right and join the signposted cycling route, which you follow all the way to the village of Bohinjska Bistrica. After about 5 kilometres of cycling, you will reach a small forest where the path branches off to the right. The blue markings of the Slovenian Mountain Biking Trail can also help you. Turn right and after a few dozen metres cross a wooden bridge at Camp Danica. Follow the cycle path past the campsite, the football pitch and the car park to the junction with the main road, where you turn left and join it. Continue straight ahead until you reach a roundabout, where you take the second exit (direction Soriška planina). Continue straight on past the Health Clinic and Hotel Tripič, then turn left at Cecconi Park (on the left). Continue straight on past the park (on the left) and the Sunrose 7 Hotel (on the right) and cross the Belca stream. After crossing the bridge, turn right and go under the railway tracks and follow the road past the Lip factory (on our left). When you get to the crossroad turn left (there is an electrical transformer on the opposite site) and after a few metres turn right (direction Tolmin / Soriška planina). After a few hundred metres the road starts to climb. Stay on the main road and after a few kilometres pass the village of Nemški Rovt (on your right) and continue your ascent. After about 4 kilometres, you reach a crossroad and turn right (direction Tolmin, Škofja Loka, Železniki, Podbrdo, Soriška planina). You have 4 kilometres of climbing to do before you reach Bohinjsko sedlo, where you finish your tour.
