Šentviška Gora Roundtrip

Biking in Slovenia » Primorska » Šentviška Gora Roundtrip

Biking from Idrijca Valley to Šentviška Gora (a plateau high above the valley) is nice; a roundtrip around the plateau is a beautiful experience. We’ll explore the sunny meadows and forests between Pečine and Šentviška Gora.

  • Drive toward Šentviška Gora and park at a small parking lot next to the junction for Pečine.
  • Bike toward Pečine and follow the main road through the village until you reach the top of the ascent.
  • Turn right onto a narrower ascending road (direction Gor. Vrh)
  • Stay on the main road until you reach a junction where it’s almost impossible to decide which fork to follow. Turn left onto a concrete road.
  • Follow the concrete road (eventually turning to gravel) until you reach a junction leading into a hairpin. Take the hairpin (direction Jerovca), then follow the signs for Št. Gora until you get to another asphalt road.
  • Turn right. When reaching the main road through Šentviška Gora, turn left toward the village center. Take a break and enjoy the view.
  • Optional: visit the vista point in Zakraj.
  • Use the main road to return to your car.
