Starting point of the tour is the Villach. Afterwards, you will be on a direct route to the Italian border via Arnoldstein. Tarvis is reached within an hour. Many cyclists use the numerous cafes in Tarvis for a short stop and enjoy an espresso and a small snack. Immediately after the end of Tarvisio begins the ascent to the Passo Predil, a not too heavy slope with a magnificent view of the Lago del Predil and the Julian Alps. At the pass is also the border with Slovenia. In a rapid descent we continue to Bovec and the beautiful Socatal valley with the unmistakable turquoise blue waters of the Soca (= Isonzo). Having reached the village of Trenta, the long ascent to the Vrsic Pass begins. Cycling downhill there are 52 bends waiting for the cyclists, which are laid out with old paving stones.
Kranjska Gora invites you to a short stop again. A homemade "Gibanica" is for every cyclist the perfect refreshment for the remaining 40km. Cross the old cycle track along the old train track to Tarvis. In Fürnitz, you can decide whether the path leads directly back to Villach, or if your legs still allow a small detour around lake Faaker See and the 1987 cycling world championship track.
Villach is a traffic junction and can easily be reached by train and bus.
