Loved our afternoon here. We cycled from Bled through lovely countryside. The gorge is stunning, lovely colours, definitely recommend. Nice and quiet when we were there, so not sure what walk ways would be like when busy. Ate at the restaurant near the entrance, good food, and extremely fresh fish straight out of river!

A beautiful walk/hike! If you don't do well with steps or uneven surfaces, you may be uncomfortable.

Its exactly like the photos, with deep emerald green pools and clear rushing water. It's a very easy walk along the wooden Boardwalk, the first part of the walk is the most scenic. The brochure mentions a waterfall, which is more like a weir. Well worth doing, very peaceful and relaxing, just listening to the sound of the water

We walked from Podhom train station and against all expectations the walk from train station to Vintgar was so nice, Podhom seems to be the cutest little place. There are good signs guiding to Vintgar. We were there on a rainy day, wasn't pouring but just enough to make it a little less crowded. Bridges are narrow and I imagine... More

About 3 to 4 mile round trip. Nice walk when not to sunny or to busy visit after snow melt so lots of water. Its 4 euros each which seems a lot for simple walk but they have the up keep of the walk so not so bad. Worth the walk. Only negative is the staff are not yhe happiest... More

It snowed and the sun shined -- it was cold but great! My favorite thing to see in Bled - the Lake and the Castle are good, but the gorge was beautiful. The river is extremely clear with fish seen throughout. It's an easy hike with two sets of waterfalls. Stunning views. The boardwalk crosses from one side of the... More

Must visit, if you are a nature lover. It is a totally 1600m(one way) walk inside the Gorge. Reachable only by car. But only 3.5 km from Bled

The hike in the gorge is very nice, with wooden bridges and ways along the rocks. You can see some small waterfall, and stand over a big one at the end of the trail. This last waterfall is a bit further away than the end of the gorge, not necessarily a must do if you are running short in time.... More

A nice walk along the river with waterfalls, lots of trout, nice vegetation - but the "gorge" is rather small and unimpressive.
