FAMILY CYCLING LOOP
FAMILY CYCLING LOOP
A cycling loop around Tolmin is a perfect choice for active families and all those who love cycling in nature. It is a great opportunity for the family members and friends of the participants on the various festival competitions, who want to make the most of their time in the Soča Valley. As the name implies, the Family Cycling Loop is not competitive in nature, so the cycling time of the participants is not measured. Participants must adhere to road traffic regulations. The route is made up of well-groomed gravel paths and quiet asphalt roads.
The cycling adventure begins at the main venue of the Soča Outdoor Festival, located at the picturesque confluence of Tolminka and Soča rivers. The gravel road, which is surrounded by green meadows and stunning views of nearby peaks, first takes us to a road junction at the village of Gabrje, where we can decide on a shorter or longer version of the route. The shorter one turns back in the direction of Tolmin and follows a quiet asphalt road towards the village of Dolje. The longer version of the route, however, continues on a pleasant gravel road along the turquoise Soča and through the village of Volarje all the way to the village of Kamno. From here on, the route continues on an asphalt road, turning back towards Tolmin and rejoining the shorter route version in Gabrje. A slight ascent between the villages of Dolje and Zatolmin is well rewarded with a refreshing descent to the entrance of the famous Tolmin Gorges, from where we cycle next to Tolminka river all the way back to the festival venue and finish the loop.
