This is a wonderful hiking trail appropriate for a short family hike where you can get into close contact with the Soča River and enjoy in marvellous views of the surrounding hills and mountains.

This physically undemanding circular hiking trail is appropriate for all generations and in all seasons. It is appropriate for hikers seeking some peace while walking along the river and enjoying in the views of the Tolmin-Bohinj Mountain range. It is also routed through the environment which is perfect for light jogging, since the majority of the trail is routed through a flat forest and along roads.

Author’s recommendation

During the hot summer days, you can refresh yourself in the Soča River.

Safety information

In the village of Volče, you have to be careful when crossing the regional road Nova Gorica–Tolmin.

Tips and hints

Just a little bit further from the Church of St, Daniel, you can join the Walk of Peace which will take you past the remnants of World War I all the way to the Church of the Holy name of Mary on Mt. Mengore or join the circular Pot po Bučenici Trail at the foothills of Mt. Bučenica. 

You can also reach the starting point of the Čez Gabrce Trail on foot from Tolmin if you follow the 27th stage of the long-range Alpe-Adria Trail and the 17th stage of the Juliana Trail. This will prolong your tour for approximately 4 km and another hour of walking.

Destination

Volče, Soča River

Turn-by-turn directions

Start the tour under the Volče Bridge and follow the wide trail along the right bank of the Soča River, cross the torrential riverbed and continue for more than 1 km along a marked trail next to the Soča River. The signs will direct you left through the forest, across the meadow and through the underpass under the regional road Nova Gorica-Bovec. Turn to the left and gradually ascend along a forest trail which will take you to Gabrce where the terrain flattens and opens. Continue walking along the cart track for 10 minutes until you reach the local road, turn to the right and start following the signs through the village of Volče. When you arrive to the centre of the village, you have to cross the regional road Nova Gorica-Bovec and then follow the narrow paved road and the signs past the Church of St. Daniel back to your starting point.
