road access

South

Regular bus lines operating year round reach Bovec from Nova Gorica and Ljubljana, both first reaching the city of Tolmin before continuing upstream along the Soča. Coming from Italy, the road from Udine first reaches the town of Kobarid, S of Bovec (between Tolmin and Bovec). A smaller road, also coming from Italy (from the Rezija region), also reaches Bovec from the SW. Tolmin to Bovec = 37 km. Udine to Bovec = 56 km.

Predel Pass (alt. 1156 m)

The Predel pass road (Predil in Italian) is maintained and open all year long. The road reaches Bovec from the NW - crossing over from Italy. On the Italian side (W), the Predil pass may be reached from the N, from the town of Tarvisio (alt. 754 m), or from the SW (Tolmezzo - Sella Nevea). Along the descent on the Slovenian side, drive through the village of Log pod Mangartom and by the Kluže fortress. The Predil/Predel pass road is used when coming from Austria, through Tarvisio. Tarvisio to Bovec = 30 km. Kranjska Gora to Bovec via Predel pass = 47 km.

Vršič pass (alt. 1611 m)

The Vršič Pass road reaches Bovec from the NE, crossing over from the town of Kranjska Gora (alt. 810 m), from the upper Sava valley. This road is very picturesque (and very curvy) but it can often not be kept open during the winter time, due to great amounts of snow. Along the descent on the S side of the pass, drive by the Soča source and then follow its Stream, passing the village of Trenta. Kranjska Gora to Bovec via Vršič pass = 45 km.
