The Soča River – The Emerald Beauty is the main focal point of this trekking type cycling tour. It accompanies you throughout the second half of the adventure, creating an incredibly picturesque landscape of the Soča valley. The further you explore, the more enjoyable it becomes. Nevertheless, a moderate 136 km of cycling over two and a half days will leave you with just enough energy to fully enjoy what comes next, each day after cycling – a tasty local dinner in a beautiful environment. If you’re up for more activities, both spots where we stay overnight offer a variety of activities to fill the day. One of which includes visiting the Slovenian awarded boutique museum that depicts the hardships suffered by both sides during the conflict at the Soča Front during WW l.

Itinerary

DAY 01

GORIŠKA BRDA

DistanceDistance: 17,2 km
DistanceElevation: 290 m

We start with a warm-up day. You’ll begin the ride in the afternoon, as there aren’t more than 20 km of cycling for the day. By the evening, we steadily make our way to the famous Slovenian wine region of Goriška Brda, where we lay our hats for an overnight stay. Get ready to take in the wonderful view over the Brda region, a vista of hills, churches, countless vineyards, and orchards of cherries, peaches, apricots, and figs. And, last but not least – a delicious dinner with local wine to finish the day.


DAY 02

GORIŠKA BRDA TO KOBARID

DistanceDistance: 63,2 km
DistanceElevation: 631 m

After an energetic breakfast at Goriška Brda you’ll head towards the Italian region of Friuli-Venezia-Giulia where we stay most of the day. On the return, we cross over the border once again coming back to Slovenia and wrapping up in the city of Kobarid. Here you can visit the well-known Kobarid museum devoted to the Soča Front of the First World War – which became one of the most dramatic battlefields taking the lives of more than 1 million soldiers. Well worth a visit!


DAY 03

ALONG THE SOČA RIVER

DistanceDistance: 56,1 km
DistanceElevation: 380 m

This is a day to really get to know the Soča River. You’ll get your first glimpse of the river just after leaving Kobarid and will ride alongside it until the end of the tour. The incomparable turquoise waters explain why this natural gem is known as the Emerald Queen of the Alps. There are no surprises on day 3 as far as strenuous cycling is concerned. No long or tough climbs – nor descents. Just an easy route to really enjoy the landscape and the view. The tour ends at the same spot where you departed, two days earlier.
