From the village Britof, take the road to the hamlet of Mišček along the Idrija River. After approx. 1.5km there is the Pri slani vodi Spring near the road. This water has a different taste than other waters.

Spring near the village Dolenje Nekovo

From Kanal, go right through the underpass under the railway to the Kanal - Lig road and turn left at the turnoff for Dolenje Nekovo. After 1 km on a macadam road, you reach a spring a few metres to the left above the road.

The St. James spring

On the Lig - Vrhovlje ridge road, take the turn-off for Debenje. After about 900 m, there is a waterhole under a clearing. It was named after the Church of St. James, which is on the ridge above the spring.
