Very nice walk through the canyon made by the river. Well maintaibed wooden trail that takes you close to the water. The cleanest water I have ever seen. It has a couple of details more I will not reveal so you can also enjoy them. 30 mins walk, easy. Good for all ages and physical conditions.

This is a walk for all levels. It was ideal as my wife was recovering from a hip operation. The walk itself, predominantly along the wooden walkways, was stunning. The views were breathtaking and the tranquility exceptional. This walk was created in the 1890s and those who made this gorge accessible to all are to be congratulated. For the seasoned... More

We loved spending time in Slovenia, because there is so much to do outdoors in this lovely country. Vintgar Gorge in the village of Podhom is about a 10 minute drive from Lake Bled, The Gorge is one of the most popular and beautiful natural features of Slovenia and the bridges and walkways make for easy hiking in the 1.6...

It was absolutely a lovely place with a board walk taking you right through the very long gorge to a beautiful waterfall!

Highly recommend coming here. Other reviews will explain the merits. I will provide details that you may find useful. 10 min drive from the eastern end of lake Bled. We used the northeastern access point which has a large parking area for cars and buses. The road in had its share of narrow points, but was doable. The entrance is... More

This gorge is beautiful, with delightful scenery. It is within easy reach of Bled. We hired bicycles and it took 30 min (4,5km) to reach the gorge. With the bikes you also leave them right in the entrance. Tickets cost 4 EUR, relatively cheap for the attraction. The walk in the gorge requires about one hour, and you can cycle... More

Great walk to through and back to bled. Recommend you get there as early as possible to avoid the coach trips that turn up from about 1030. If you walk there you can go through the gorge and return out the other end to Bled. A great round trip !
