The access to the Koseč Gorges is extremely difficult, which is why you can only visit the arranged section. Start the tour in the village of Koseč in the vicinity of the village of Drežnica. The arranged hiking trail is routed past the Church of St. Just and along the Stopnik Stream which created several high waterfalls. The trail provides relaxation in the embrace of the forest and a chance to rest on energetic points. On the return, you can also refresh yourself in the village of Koseč at the Tourist Farm Kranjc and complete the tour with a visit to the nearby waterfalls Sopota and Krampež.
