Must see · Geologic Formation · Nature / Park
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. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Tolmin fast, fun, and easy.

  • This gorge was absolutely amazing. We visited late afternoon and it wasn't overly busy. We got to explore at our own pace and really enjoy the experience. It was stunning. My only concern, if you are travelling from Bled, be ready to tackle lots of mountain roads getting back to your hotel. All worth it though.
  • A place to visit if you are in this part of the country. One word of advice. As it's a circular route, you can take the lower route or the upper one. Take the upper one because the nastiest part is on a steep south slope and if you take the lower route, you will have a cool descent at first, but then you will have to climb 100 m with scorching sun on your back - and by the time you react the top - you will know why Dante got the idea of writing Inferno right there on the spot. So - take the top route, the nastiest bit will become an easy walk downhill and the final climb will be easy and short stroll through a shaded area.
  • A small wonder that is worth visiting if you have already discovered other tourist assets in the region. It is very nice but exceedingly short and I think it does not justify the price of the entrance plus the parking.
  • Breath taking in more than one way. Once because of the beautiful turquoise colored water carving it's way through the massive limestone forming even more beautiful shapes of rock. And on the other hand because of the temperature difference during the summer months - down inside it is pleasantly cool. But when you ascend back up it hits you hard - be prepared.
  • Gorgeous, stunning absolutely loved it. The water is gorgeous and one can see the confluence as well which is really neat. At the end of the gorge when you head up to the road you can see the cave that inspired Dante's inferno.If in the area a must see.
