While staying at the Lake Bled campsite we went to the gorge. There is a convenient bus that takes you the use and picks you up two hours late. The gorge itself is dramatic. The views of rapids, ravines and mountains are well worth the visit. Mingled with those are the stone stacks that inhabit the middle section of the... More

Easy to access from Bled either via Taxi (between €12 - €16) or bus from Bus station or a 45 min to 1 hour walk via Zasip and St Katherine Church to the top end of the gorge. Gorge can get very busy so try get there first thing in morning (08-00) to really enjoy or take plenty of photographs... More

This place is beautiful. I'd recommend this over Plitvice. It is well built, with an excellent easy to walk path through the the gorge, and you'll want to take photos at every turn. I recommend renting a car and going early in the morning, because by mid-morning the tour buses show up and it gets filled with people.

A magnificent place. Very crowded. A wonderful hike. The parking was well managed. Seems much better to go off-season ...

A nice walk in the canyon, however a bit long and would have expected something Wow at the end :) Also, you return on the same way you went in, which is a bit boring.

Just outside the northern side of Bled this gorge has been made into a great attraction by the addition of walkways alongside and across the river. We were there during a heavy downpour of rain and the misty scene was more dramatic. It gets busy in the middle of the day so worth going early or late. You will need... More

Was very picturesque but crowded. There is a fee to enter, and parking lot was full. The crowd took away from the experience. You expect large crowds at the Colosseum during August, but did not expect at Vintgar Gorge.
