TOP 5 Highlights of the tour:
Peričnik waterfall is one of the most breathtaking and well known waterfalls in Slovenia. It drops 16 metres down to the first ridge from where it continues to descend 52 metres down the bottom waterfall. The Pericnik waterfall is a remnant of the ice age during which the largest glacier valley Vrata on the north side of the Julian Alps was shaped. In winter the waterfall turns into innumerable icicles and floes in delicate shades of blue and green.
