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.

  • One of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. I just kept saying wow every 5 meters because of the sheer beauty of the place. 10 euros are absolutely worth it. Cafe at the waterfall also very affordable. can't wait to go back
  • Very beautiful trail, well maintained and absolutely worth the few coins. One small thing that we would have liked to know up front is, that it's only a one way trip. So you walk a beautiful gorge trail made of wood pathways on the cliff side, just to walk back via a random trail and road which isn't all that beautiful. There is an opportunity to take a transit back to where you started the gorge but we did not take it. We had a really good time enjoying the beauty of the gorge.
