I absolutely loved visiting the Vintgar Gorge. It was wonderful. You walk along the side of it on the ledge or a slat bridge. The water is moving and splashing down below you over some very interesting rock formations. It was misty that day and, truly, this just added to its beauty! As we walked along its edge, we would...

The river is gorgeous and the walk highly enjoyable. The walkways are fun and there are lots of great spots for interesting pictures. Great activity for the entire family. We thought the length of the walk (round trip) was perfect for a few hours of exercise at your own pace. The snack cabin at the end of the trail/turnaround point... More

Don't be put off if it's closed in winter months. But obviously be careful and probably go in a group in case anything does happen. Simply duck around the barrier. Admittedly our path was impaired by a couple of huge mounds of snow but these are easy enough to dodge if you're vaguely nimble or to walk over with the... More

Our hostel took us to this gorge for free as part of their accomodation! So glad we went! It is really nice to look at, it's amazing how much Slovenia as a country has to offer.

I have never been somewhere so beautiful. Slovenia offers so many breathtaking views, but that being said Vintgar Gorje was the most beautiful. I have never seen water so clean. And it was right near Lake Bled, so if you're in the area look it up !

These raging waters are well worth a visit but similar to the Partnach gorge in Garemisch Partenkirchen in Bavaria, GO EARLY to avoid the crowds

We walked the gorge track on a rainy day - and it was still amazing! It's an easy walk - with a well maintained boardwalk most of the way. The gorge is truly beautiful - the water is an amazing aqua blue and the surrounding landscape is also spectacular, there are even little wild flowers along the track. I would... More

I spent about two hours walking through the Vintgar Gorge with a group of friends during the summer. Entry to the gorge is around 4 euros, tickets can be purchased at the entrance which is open around 8AM to 7PM April - November. Plenty of parking and porta potties at the entrance. A wooden walkway built into the side of... More

This forge took a little effort for us to find but was worth the effort. It was raining for most of our hike, but still very worthwhile. Wear shoes for mud even if not raining due to the spray of the raging water through the gorge. Pack a drink and a sandwich and stop to enjoy them along the way... More
