About
In order to reduce the risks related to the novel corona virus, we have introduced a new visitation regime. We kindly ask you to read and follow the instructions below, and above all, to show understanding. The instructions have been prepared to minimise the possibility of a COVID-19 infection in visitors and employees. The entry and exit points have been separated. It will not be possible to return through the gorge. This will prevent close encounters at the narrow sections of the route. The entrance will be at the log cabin in the village Podhom, and the exit at the Šum waterfall in Blejska Dobrava. Visitors will be able to choose between different circular routes to return to your entry point. All routes are clearly marked on the information boards and signposts along the route. Please check our website before visiting for prices and path descriptions.

Vintgar Gorge is a beautiful spot to visit, we walked the route (one way due to Covid19). We visited in the morning, it was still quite calm.

A place from the legends. One of the highlights of the trip to Slovenia
Nov 2019 • Family
What was not said about this site!!!
Once you go through the checkout, you will enter heaven.
Clear water, small waterfalls, wooden bridges and lots of greenery.
A simply magical place not to be missed in any way.
Only when you will visit here you will understand.
The easiest way to get there is with a private car.
Highly recommend

Indescribably good.
Aug 2020
Enough parking at the entrance, parking is paid 5 euros per day. Parking staff kind, point to vacancies, leave enough space between cars. Admission is 10 euros per person. The first part is the most beautiful one, so don’t rush like some fools, take your time and enjoy the view, the sounds and the freshness. If you want to keep a social distance there are places where you let running fools pass. At the end of the gorge is a waterfall and a beautiful little cafe where you can sit back and refresh yourself before continuing the route. The road continues with a steeper part (and a shorter one) to the left, or an easier part through the forest to the lookout point, where you have a view of Bled, Bled town and its surroundings. In total, you can go through the tour in an hour or 3 hours, if you take the time to enjoy the untouched nature. If you are traveling with children take the shuttle back.

Nature to enjoy
Aug 2020 • Solo
If you are a nature lower than be sure not to miss the Gorge while in the are.
1.6km long river canyon boasts with beauty and refreshing air. Lovely 45minute walk will take you to other side where you can also enjoy Waterfall at the end.

Wonderful path along the wonder of the nature
Aug 2020
One of the most beautiful places I have ever seen in Slovenia.
It's a walking path of about 1 hour with a wonderful sight all along the rive.
I got there at about 4 PM so I had the luck to find the path free of people enough to take picture and walk with my calm and no hurry.
Just a remark: I didn't take information about the visit before coming there, so I didn' know that the path is not a round trip.
This means that after 1 hour walking, you arrive at the end of the path pretty far away the point you started from.
You have then to walk for an other hour through a steep uphill path.
Nothing dramatic, the path on the way back is even nice to walk, but you should be aware that at the end of the visit to the gorge, you have to add one additional hour to get back, and this can be a bit unpleasant if you have kids or elderly people.
The ticket costs 10 euros, but it's definitively worth.

Lovely view
Aug 2020 • Couples
The view is very nice and if you are near Bled it's a must-see. However the trail can get a little bit crowded, because people take pictures and stop on the middle of the path. The entrance fee is 10€ per person.
You should be aware that the hike back to the parking lot (which you also pay for, but only 3 or 4€) takes about an hour. It is not hard and there is shade almost whole way back. There is also a small bar during the walk, where you can get something to drink, ice cream or "struklji". You can also catch a ride back to the parking lot if you don't feel like walking.

Dear guest, thank you for the nice review. We are happy you had a good time, but please don't post false information online, we do not charge for the hike back! The return is absolutely free, the only part you have to pay for is from the entrance (Podhom 80, 4247 Zgornje Gorje) to the waterfall Šum at the end of the gorge (Rebr 25a, 4273 Blejska Dobrava). When you reach the waterfall you have two FREE marked paths for the return to the starting point. One is almost 3 km long (with the gorge, total 4,5 km) the other is 4 km long (with the gorge, total 5,5 km). Paths are well marked and you can read more about them on our website. Thank you.

Fantastic natural trip
Aug 2020 • Couples
The sight is fantastic! It is perfect for a honeymoon journey. You need good shoes but the trip is easy, the trip back is harder, if you choose the longer path that is for experienced hikers. It’s a must to see.

Long walk back
Jul 2020 • Family
We went to the entrance by e-bike which was very convenient. The gorge is nice and the walk is really enjoyable. The waterfall at the end is not a must see. Be aware that the wall back is one hour and not on a flat road.

Thank you for the rating. We appreciate your feedback and are happy you had a good time. For the return you have two marked paths, one is almost 3 km long (with the gorge, total 4,5 km) the other is 4 km long (with the gorge, total 5,5 km). Paths are well marked and you can read more about them on our website. It is important that you come well prepared for the visit. For those that possibly could not walk back, there is a public bus, going from village Blejska Dobrava every day at 08:34, 10:34, 12:34, 14:34, 15:30, 16:34, 18:34 and at 20:34. It stops at the entrance to the Vintgar gorge.

Fun walk
Jul 2020
We liked the views, particularly the one from the bridge at the 1,6km trail end.

Regardless of the views, we found the price to be a bit steep. Many of the kind can be seen for free in neighboring regions. I understand the infra requires some upkeep, though.

Be sure not to miss the lower viewing platform that requires passing the bar on the right side and walking down the stairs.
