This is a four day bikepacking trip which leads you through the Julian Alps. The route contains some steep climbs and technical trails. Nevertheless, it can be done self-supplied with light backpacking equipment and wild camping.

The last day of the tour provides a splendid scenery of the Mangart mountain and the Lago del Predil in Italy. The rest of the day is only about going back to Villach.

The day starts at the wilderness camp in the Moznica valley. After cycling back to the main road, the route goes up the Passo del Predil. The prominent Mangart mountain is always close to us and dominates the scenery. Also a side trip is possible up the road to Mangart.

At the pass, it is time to say goodbye to Slovenia and entering Italy. The close by Lago del Predil is a fantastic spot for a rest and a splendid swimming opportunity. Then the road goes down to Tarvisio. Via gravel roads we circumvent the main highways until Arnoldstein. From there we can follow the main bike route to Villach, the final destination of this tour.
