An easy/semi-demanding circular biking trail that leads across the western part of the Bovec
The tour starts in the centre of Bovec
and continues via the main road toward the hamlet of Plužna
In the centre of the hamlet, by the fountain, turn right and cycle to the artificial lake made for the Plužna
hydroelectric power plant.
The tour continues along the lake and further following a concrete channel up to the first post, where a left turn must be made.
Next is a short but rather demanding descent to a bridge over the Gljun Stream
Some 100 m after crossing the bridge is a junction; turn right here and continue across the bridge over Ročica
and past the golf course to the main Bovec
Here, turn right again and follow the main road up to the branch-off for Čezsoča
The main road is left here to cross a bridge over the Soča River
On the other side of the bridge, turn left to a macadam road and follow it to the village of Čezsoča.
The tour continues via an asphalt road straight through the village to the intersection for the hamlet of Jablenca
, a bit before ‘Gostilna Vančar’
(i.e. the Vančar guest-house

of asphalt road the hamlet of Jablenca
Soon after the hamlet, a footpath branches off left to a wooden bridge over the Soča River
After crossing the bridge, the tour leads left and continues to a wooden bridge over the Koritnica River
After crossing that bridge, an asphalt road toward Bovec
is reached at the Toni campsite
The part of the tour from the hamlet of Jablenca
to the Toni campsite
is rather exposed, so some caution is required.
From the campsite, an asphalt road leads to a short but steep uphill section, at the top of which you turn right and cycle via a cart track to the Bovec
bypass at the “Devica Marija v Polju” church
(Eng.: Church of Virgin Mary in the Field
The tour continues past the tennis courts back to the starting point.
During this tour, other natural wonders may be visited, namely the magnificent Boka Waterfall
(on the main Bovec
road, before the branch-off for Čezsoča
) as well as the Virje Waterfall
and the spring of the Gljun Stream
(both near the artificial lake in Plužna
