This undemanding and dynamic circular trail offers a special experience in the area of the famous medicinal Grofova voda Spring, waterfalls of the Sopotnica Stream and the SočaRiver.
Distance 9.8 km
When the panorama trail from the village of Zatolmin starts to descend into the forest you soon arrive into a pleasant water area where you are accompanied by the rippling of the Sopotnica Stream with its rapids and small waterfalls all the way to the Grofova voda Spring. The folk tradition says that the Grofova voda Spring posesses medicinal powers. This was confirmed with radiesthetic measurements which placed this spring alongside energetically and medically most powerful springs in the world. After you have quenched your thirst with this clear water and replenished your water supplies, take a few minutes to rest and admire the old and thick wych elm that has been drinking the water from the Grofova voda Spring for several decades. The trail continues past the largest and most beautiful waterfall. You will also have to cross a small wooden bridge below the waterfall. Along the trail you can notice the remnants of World War I. Just in front of the village of Gabrje you come across the Kofol Mill – more than a century old tourist exhibit – which is the only mill still preserved in this area.
During the summer months we recommend you to take this tour early in the morning because more than a half of the trail is routed along the sunny side of the hill.
