Tolmin Gorge, Tolmin

4.8
#3 of 14 in Parks in Slovenian Littoral Region
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. A visit to Tolmin Gorge represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Tolmin itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • I walked to the park entrance from downtown Tolmin so that added to my hike and was totally worth it. Took me about 3 1/2 hours from hotel back to hotel. Walked through great "town" area and more rura...  more »

  • Nice walk. Prettier than Vintgar in my opinion. Lots of tourists so get in early.
  • Its sucks in heavy rain. Entry 5 eur. Its nice, but isn't nicer as Martuljek Gorge. Martuljek ist just for free, longer as well.
  • Worth to visit! The colour of the water there is completely turquoise. Really beautiful
  • Amazing place, nice walk and you can even walk up to the caves
  • Absolutely beautiful place. I would recommend this gorge over the more popular Vintgar (which is still nice, but not as nice). Definitely worth a visit.
