4.8/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web
Explore the largest known underground canyon in the world at Skocjan Caves, a World Heritage Site famous for its many waterfalls, diverse stalactite formations, and limestone pools. The caves feature 6 km (3.7 mi) of underground passages and one of the largest underground halls. With a total depth of over 200 m (656 ft), this system of limestone caves was inhabited as early as Mesolithic times. On your way through, you will pass a 116 m (380 ft) long tunnel, a dry river bed, a so-called "silent cave" and "murmuring cave." Look out for the huge stalagmites called the Giants and the Organ. The highlight of the trip is crossing over a 45 m (148 ft) high bridge. Bring a light jacket and put on good walking shoes since the paths can be slippery.

  • Received guided tours only, buy a ticket at the venue and start time is specified for a guide to walking the cave on foot, visit the. Walk into the entrance when I attended English speaking guide tour started with the time difference, divided into two groups, one group Germany-speaking guide. Photography is allowed in the vicinity of exit until all were banned. Will walk more than an hour inside the cave staff followed by varied landscapes.

  • It was an amazing tour of the Caves. Sometimes a little hard to hear our guide, but just looking around and taking it all in was more than enough. It was a bit cold, wearing layers was perfect. A bit ...  read more »

  • An amazing experience, I was in awe of the huge chambers during the cave tour. I highly recommend taking tour parts 1 and 2 (cave tour + walk along the river), to get the best experience. The groups were quite large: around 30 people during the cave tour, but I didn't have any trouble hearing the guide speak, even though I was in the back. The tour was in English and the guide spoke the language decently. Overall I highly recommend this activity, 5 stars.
  • Absolutely stunning! The pictures from the guidebook didn't do it justice at all. I felt as if I'd walked straight into Moria. Seeing the where the old tourist paths had gone was really cool too. Highly recommended! Photography was not permitted inside the caves which was a bit of a shame. But then again, it's so dark you'd need time and a tripod to get any good ones anyway, and in a larger group that would be impossible.
  • Amazing cave system! The scale is enormous, you just need to see it for yourself. Tip: tours started every hour when we visited, so be sure to time your visit to avoid long waits.
  • AMAZING natural wonder! Well preserved. Cave trails were all very safe. A must see if you're in the area!!
  • Most beautifull caves I have ever seen. Better than Postojna caves.
