This is a well known gem in the Bled area. Visit only on sunny days - rain makes the path slippery. In the high season arrive before 9:30 AM to avoid big crowds. The round trip may be completed in two hours or less and is suitable almost to anyone .The combination of trees, slopes, clear water, sounds and crisp... More

Try to make the round trip (2 h) to avoid going up and down the same route. Better go in spring since more water should be filling the river.

The best time to visit the gorge is early in the morning before the crowds and coach parties arrive. We caught the 8.30am bus from Bled and had the gorge almost to ouselves. It was very beautiful and plenty of stunning photograph opportunities. The board walk is narrow but perfectly easy to walk along. It took us a while to... More

This place is one of the "must see" places. The path beside the running water the bridges over the water falls are amazing. We've been there with kids and they enjoyed the walk too.

We visited later in the day 3pm - but could have waited a bit longer as crowds from busses still there which makes it difficult to pass along some of the narrow walkways . We drove from Bled and it was tricky for the GPS because of all the road closures due to roadworks The gorge is really beautiful and... More

We cycled here from Bled which took about half an hour and was a relatively easy ride. The entrance fee was reasonable, €4 I think. Sure there are plenty of people here but that doesn't detract from the beauty of the place. The water is perfectly clear and very tempting just to dive in! The paths are well maintained and... More

A nice 40-45min walk from Bled town. Well sign posted so ideal to walk or cycle to. A few hills but nothing too strenuous. The gorge itself is really pretty. A little bit crowded at this time of year but still well worth the trip.

The gorge is amazing, soooo many photo opportunities and its a nice little walk near the water, which is crystal blue. We were staying in Bled and heard that the gorge gets busy, so we walked from Bled, (The first bus doesn't arrive until 9am) it was a nice easy walk and we got there just after opening so we...
