This is a really good walk - we went on a Friday mid-morning and though there were a fair number of people it wasn't over busy. the highlight for us was spotting a dipper and watching it for ten minutes or so. Lots of interesting plants but sadly no information. Well worth the 4 euros entrance fee

This was such good value for money. A breath-taking one-mile walk on wooden walkways along the beautiful river, with the narrow gorge high above your head. Blue water and stunning waterfalls. Delicious trout soup on the canopied terrace at the restaurant near the entrance, with fish caught in traps by the water's side. A very lovely trip. Tip: don't visit... More

easy 7km cycle from Bled, great scenery and amazing waterfall at the end. You can hike through or return to the start if you come by car or bike.

Our host told us to get there early and he was right. By getting there right when they opened we had the Gorge mostly to ourselves which made for amazing pictures. So beautiful!

We Nordic walked from Lake Beld and enjoyed the entire experience. The entry ticket is 8 euros per adult but worth it to see this fascinating gorge and waterfalls. Can be busy with coach loads but a relatively easy walk around the gorge on purpose built bridges and board walks with lots of photo opportunities.

The place is spectacular, the colourchanging tones of water whilst you stroll along the narrow swirling wooden walkway is simply amazing. You pay a little fee, even though many people simply didn't bother about this we noticed. It was raining slightly so the path can get muddy. Its about 3Km to walk to the gorge and back. When its very... More

It is really beautiful and worth the visit if you go to Bled. For me it was a long and lovely walk from Bled, or take a bike! I went early in the morning, which meant I had the whole Gorge to myself - really really lovely. I met the first busload of people as I walked out, so my... More

A real must-see for its dramatic beauty and the skill of those who created the walkway. The path can get a bit crowded when the coach trips descend so just pause, absorb the drama and you will have the place to yourself again.
