On of the road cycling challenges in in Slovenia, the Vršič pass is what you will conquer on this route, with its 25 "cobble stone" corners. The descent into Soča Valley is epic and fast. You will pas Lake Jasna, and end the ascent through Trenta valley. You can stop to visit the Soča spring (20 min walk, payable), Triglav National park museum in Trenta, and view the Soča riverbeds. 

Author’s recommendation

The river is still drinkable.
