Tolmin Gorge, Tolmin
(4.8/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Trek around Tolmin Gorge to discover its many natural features, including the Bear's Head, a fallen moss-covered rock stuck between its walls like a bridge. The gorge is the lowest entry point into Triglav National Park. Devil's Bridge, a steel bridge that replaced an older wooden one from 1907, shelters a small cave with a thermal spring. At the entrance, get a map and inquire where to go. Wear sturdy shoes and bring plenty of water and food. The scenery along the gorge features many wet, dark tunnels, crossings, rapids, and waterfalls. Notice the green-blue color of the crystal clear water, the result of its mineral content. A visit to Tolmin Gorge represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Tolmin itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • Water is emerald green. Walk is surrounded many trees. It is just a perfect short hike. The lady at entrance was very nice, it must be just the way this country works. There is a free shuttle from Tol...  more »
  • Amazing creation of nature with a colorful Tolminka river in a deep gorge! An excellent hike with low/mild temperatures even in the hottest summer. 
  • A few hours well spent, between turquoise water and the green of the trees. The whole trail is well maintained and runs smoothly, although there are also some steps. Worth the effort to take a walk in nature, gorges have really beautiful views!

  • Nature has done some awesome work, perfect for a cool down during summer. First go for Dante's cave (take a flashlight wirh you), they say that Dante got his inspiration of Hell (Divine Comedy), then go to the Bears head and so on.
  • The place was wonderful. The river and the areas very very nice. The women in the gorge was very very nice. It was the 22 june 2016, and still me and my wife remmember her. Thanks for all your help, including my friend who is very delight with the things we gave him. Nice area Slovenjia and their people
  • a nice place for a short (shorter than some other mountain hikes in the region) walk on a well built trail. somewhat similar to the more popular vintgar gorge with less people
  • Wonderful place where you can walk and stay in total armony with the nature and the river.
  • Visiting time: 2007-2014, each during the summer holidays and partially in February. Great "small" part of the nature park, which you can hike independently. Confluence of the Tolminska and the Zadlascica with breathtaking waterfalls and nature. Crystal clear water (eisigkalt, also in the summer!) Camera to take highly recommended. This sturdy footwear! Ascent to the "Dante's cave" from right there possible. Drain plug:(Da die Dantes Cave nicht indem Google Maps verzeichnet ist). There is a famous cave which supposedly should stood godfather for the book description of Dante's Hell above the Tolmin gorges. The cave can be visit and explore with a guide, stout footwear and various equipment. The trip takes about 3-4hrs, costs around 50 EUR and is extremely recommended from our side. Only claustrophobia should you have no :-) Also in February, by the way a great area. Of course without foliage, but nevertheless impressive by ice and snow.
