We went their as a family of expecting nothing more than flowing body of water but what we saw was absolutely stunning. This site is surely one of the most picturesque sites in the world. The force of the water, the rocky climate surrounding the gorge is very beautiful. The approx 1.5 km walk is a relaxing walk through ,... More

You don't need to be in great shape, but the walk will take about 2 hours round trip. Nature is exuberant.

It was easy to get there by bus from Lake Bled - about 20 mins which included a stop at the castle. A great place to take photos. At the end of the gorge there is a walk back to Lake Bled through the national park which we did. It took about 1 and half hours but was well worth... More

We sort of stumbled upon Vintgar Gorge and now this is one of our top most beautiful places ever. It's cheap too. The wooden bridges and paths through the gorge are cool and the view the entire time is breathtaking. Take your time walking through this amazing place of nature.

We rented bikes from Bled and did the 7km cycle to the Vintgar. However, be warned the cycle is all uphill and for a group that don't cycle at all we found it very challenging, but managed it in the end. The gorge is beautiful to walk around and take pictures. The water is so blue and breathtaking. The cycle... More

Beautiful walk. We were there went is was very hot so the coll shade and river where great. We had 4 kids (10,9,6,5) and all enjoyed it very much. We walked and came back the same way because it was so hot. It is a MUST walk when visiting in Slovenia, Bled area.

It's about 1.6 km to the fall and 3.2 km all together. An amazing nature trail that suits young kids. There are some hanging wooden bridges an old dam and a beautiful waterfall with freezing cold water at the end. We saw some people try to swim but it was way too cold.
