  • A beautiful walk through the approximately 2 km long Pokljuka Gorge. Follow the signs to the free parking lot in Krnica. From car park left path for a slowly rising walk through beautiful nature. At split sign ' galerije ' signs. Look also up during walk and admire the natural rock bridge almost 50 meters above you. On the end of the Gorge, a steep path to a wooden bridge, with which you go through the narrowest part, less than 1 meter wide, the gap. Then you can via the same path back again (or through, but then walk 15 km longer). Highly recommended and much less touristy than the Vintgar Gorge.

  • We have hiked trail of ca 2.30 Std.dauert the not always well signposted. Great scenery, great way to some very difficult. Sturdy footwear is necessary and also walking sticks. It's partly steep uphill and steep downhill. Not for people with a fear of heights. The Gallery an absolute must! The trail is pretty shady. Especially in the summer comfortable. Take enough to drink!

  • We loved this hike! It's challenging and every now and then you wonder if you are lost. But you would be lost in a gorgeous place, so it wouldn't even really matter. You have to be able to climb some ...  more »
  • Amazing gorge, very different from the nearby vingtar gorge. This one doesn't currently have a river running through it, but the cliffs, caves and nature around you is truly breathtaking. There's parking space right where google currently points when you search for the gorge on maps, and the trail starts there. There's also a small panel with information right there. There's not much parking space available, but the gorge seems way less touristy than other spots. We didn't have any issues for parking. The trail isn't an easy one, but it's not too difficult either. Make sure to wear appropriate shoes.
  • Almost hidden parking spot and start of a great hike of the Pokljuka Gorge. The route is pretty challenging and you need some directions (at least we did). Start at the parking spot and after 10 min there are signs for the gallery or the cave. I suggest to follow the "gallery" route first (that is the path left, dont go right to the cave, you will pass it on the way back), and after passing this gallery via the stairs, continue trough the botanic garden. After 450 meters, take the path that goes left and up. You will walk trough a forest and after a while you see a crossing of a natural bridge of the gorge on your left. Pass this bridge and follow the path (pretty challenging path!). After this path turn right with a fence on your left. After the fence turn left and then go right following the signs "krnicia /bled". You will end up in the cave and you will be at the point where you went left to the gallery. Total hiking time about 2 hours. Hopefully this is helpful! Really worth the hike.
  • Had it almost all to ourselves. It was October on a weekday​, but I think this place is ignored enough to be quite magical.
  • Unfortunately the directions lead completely off-road. Right place to reach the most beautiful part of the Gorge is by parking at coordinates 46.379091, 14.041503. Otherwise it is a huge effort (the other path is reported badly) to risk not seeing the most beautiful point, which is on the bottom of the Gorge. Here the river virtually disappeared and left the gully created over the centuries. At one point of the itinerary we pass, with the help of a footbridge and a ladder, right into the gap created by the River, that leaves a lasting impression.

  • Not so spectacular and available as Vintgar but like most worth seeing. Good shoes are required, you may need a flashlight. Access to the entrance of the Gorge, poorly marked by dirt road. Admission free.
