Create an itinerary including Vintgar Gorge
Cut deep between two hills overgrown with beech forests, Vintgar Gorge is full of small waterfalls, rapids, and erosion potholes. Cartographer and photographer Benedikt Lergetporer and mayor of Gorje Jakob Zumer discovered the gorge in 1891. Walk along the tourist path with narrow passages, wooden bridges, and galleries, constructed on the rocks in 1893. Listen to the roar of Radovna River echoing along the 1.6 km (1 mi) long gorge marked at the end by a waterfall plunging 16 m (52 ft). The gorge also features two manmade attractions: an arched stone railway bridge from 1906 and a dam. When you reach the end of the gorge, walk back across the meadows passing St. Catherine's church.

  • A nature's beauty, very scenic place. Walking through the woods gives you peace and a lot of positive vibes. Good option for spending time in nature and a significant change from daily hectic times. Good place to visit with friends and family.
  • It is a nice walk through gorge, color of the water is stunning and it is exceptionally clean. We were in June and it was not crowded at all. There are several parking lots we were parked at P2 which is aprox 20min walking from both entrance and exit point, there is also P1 that is located right at the entry point and about 35min from exit. It is not possible to go through the gorge with baby stroller. The price of 10€ per person is a bit much for a short walk, but I was surprised the most when I had to pay 1€ for my 14month old baby. Still nice place to visit and hike through.
