A demanding tour that can be made on mountain bikes, leads us across famous Bohinj pastures. The tour starts at the Senožeta car park on the edge of Srednja vas and takes you through the village, where the ascent starts along the stone road to Uskovnica pasture. Freshen up at the alpine hut and then continue across the pasture towards Rudno polje, at the Razpotje crossroads turn towards the Praprotnica and Zajamniki pastures. We recommend you rest on Zajamniki pasture, from where you can admire the beautiful view of Lake Bohinj, the Bohinj and Tolmin mountains and Triglav. After a short stop, continue along the stone road past the pastures to Goreljek, where you come to an asphalt road and descend to Koprivnik, Jereka, Češnjica and the starting point.
