The caves are very impressive. You start of with a 500 meter walk and introduction talks (first 30 minutes of the tour) and then enter the dry cave, which has no water but lots of stalactites and stalagmites. It gets more impressive the further you get in. The second part is where the river Reka flows underground, and this is... More

Wow! It's like the Grand Canyon in there! The bridge inside is stunning. Though there was a big group, if we hung back, it was still very nice. The walk up from the bottom is beautiful, but, if it's as hot as it was the summer day we went, be prepared to do a load of laundry afterwards. One word... More

I recently visited the Skocjan Caves with my husband and we were skeptical of how much we would enjoy it. It is slightly cheaper than Postojna and supposedly less touristy. There were a lot of people visiting when we went and we were split into three tour groups. Our guide was very knowledgeable and handled the large group easily. The... More

An enjoyable morning was had at these lovely caves. Its not that cold inside and with all the walking and climbing of stairs it keeps you warm. i would have liked longer stops during the tour so as to view the features.

This is an astonishing place to visit. It's a system of caves that can be seen from inside and out. The interior is varied and staggering: well worth it. We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the day. I'd suggest decent shoes, water and a jersey. Wonderful. Lunch at the Betanc farm in Betanija (an easy walk) is well... More

On the day we planned to come here, the weather was atrocious. As a consequence it was very busy. We followed the guides down to the first cave and the group was split into different nationalities with a guide for that language. The cave system was incredible and our guide was very knowledgeable although no photos are allowed. The surface... More

We were in Slovenia for a few days and heard the caves were worth seeing. The Postojna Caves are supposed to be the more touristy ones, with a train carrying visitors through, etc. We were recommended to see, however, the Skocjan Caves, which are just a bit farther south, but far less crowded. Well, it was without a doubt the... More

We were SO impressed! What an amazing place! The caves are so amazing!! The trail is in excellent shapes and is not slippery. But there is a lot of stairs and some steep up and downs. Many people in our group were out of breath by the end. It was not as cold as we expected and we were warm... More
