Directions

Head southeast from Hermagor along the B 111 to Arnoldstein. Carry on to Hart, turning off there towards Kranjska Gora in Slovenia. It involves going over the Wurzen Pass (1,073 m) – a demanding, but fun route with its narrow, twisting roads and gradients of up to 18%. Along the River Save begins the next exciting ascent to the Vršič Pass. At an altitude of 1,611 m above sea level, Vršič is the highest mountain pass in Slovenia and links Kranjska Gora with the Trenta Valley. Some of the 48 hairpin bends on the northern part of the pass road still have cobblestones. From the Vršič Pass there are magnificent panoramic views of the Triglav National Park. The route carries on towards the Sočc and Predil to Italy. Before the border, you have the option of taking a trip up the 12 km long mountain road to the alpine chalet (1,906 m) at the foot of the 2,677 m high Mangart. You can even climb the Mangart – it takes about 2 hours from the chalet, but beautiful views at the summit reward you for your effort. Back down in the valley, the route goes to Sella Nevea, Chiusaforte and Moggio. There, you turn off into Val d’Aupa, which runs north towards Pontebba. Another climb is in store – up to the Nassfeld Pass (Passo di Pramollo) at 1,552 m. The descent on the Austrian side has lovely twists and turns which, coupled with the good road surface, are a motorcycle adventurer’s dream come true.
