We drove to Bohenj national park from nearby Lake Bled and it was nature all the way. We were surprised we had to pay to go up the hundreds of steps to the source of the waterfall, but it was still nice and worth it. The top is a bit of anti climax but we got a good work out... More

I liked the scenery, fresh air seeing all the water flowing. It was easy to walk all the way. There were raillings to hold on so that you will not slip and fall.

The Vintgar gorges are nice, but honestly, nothing unbelievable. I know there are way more beautiful places throughout Europe, so I don't understand why are people so crazy about it. Sure the pictures of Vintgar look great and magical, I myself have taken great shots there, but believe me it is not as incredible as advertised. Four euros to walk... More

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.
