Suggestions sort for scenic route into the Bovec area.

We are traveling up into Austria and plan to visit the Bovec and Konrad area.

We would prefer to keep off the fast main roads and see the villages and scenery. Can someone please give us some suggestions. Our next stop will be around the Amprezzo area. We are in no rush.

Further to the above, I would like to have some help please. In July I will be drving from Venice to Graz in Austria and am thinking of passing thru Slovenia and making a one night or two night stop in Bovec. What are your suggestions of the most scenic route to take and what interesting places there are to visit. We like scenery, nature and some history.

I do not know exactly what things do you prefer to see, but for Slovenia i would suggest you one ot two stops in the way. I would head toward Sezana and visit Skocjanske cave or Lipica ( white lipcaner horses ) in the morning and and head towards Goriska brda above Nova Gorica for some nice late lunch and great view of vineyards and fruit trees. In the late afternoon i would drive to Bovec ( approx 1 hour drive ). I suggest you spend two nigts in Bovec at least and take first day for exploring the surroundings. There are plenty of things to see from 1st World War and 2014 is 100 years from when it started. Maybe you can even try some of water sports like rafting ot kayaking. For sure check Kluze fortress, Soca river, some nice hikes, Boka and Kozjak waterfall, ...

After 2nd night you can head on in the morning i would take a drive through Trenta valley and check out big Soca canyon (throughs), Trenta museum, Mlinarica canyon, Soca spring and Vrsic pass with russain chapel.

If you want to hurry on towards Graz on 2nd day, then just take Predil pass, which is alo nice for some nice views. From Bovec there is only 35km to motorway - directly to Graz.

If you need more information or timings, i would be glad to help you.

Have a nice holiday!
