One of the best cave tour ever experience ! We took only the first tour which is through the canyon and it was good enough for us. Do remember to bring along a jacket as the cave can be chilly. Highly recommended!

Having done my research before going to Slovenia, I was well aware of the different caves systems in Slovenia & decided that of the main two, the Skocjan Caves were very much top of the list. The tour guide (aside from looking a bit like...More

Being a Unesco world heritage site, this cave should be high on your bucket list. Its not as busy as Postojna cave, but definitely more spectacular! Tours last 1.5 hrs, so do think ahead. Caves consist of various chambers, however, the last one is spectacular....More
