Initially you will make a short moderate climb in the village on the left bank of the Soča River, and continue to the west brinks of the Banjška planota plateau. Ride past the fragrant meadows while enjoying the views of the Julian Alps. In the last part of the route, drive back to the alpine emerald beauty past the alpine farms. In Most na Soči, where Idrijca and Soča Rivers merge and which is known as an iron age settlement, you can enjoy the views of the emerald lake with nicely arranged embankments.
