TOP 5 Highlights of the tour:

  • Be impressed by the Bled's Vintgar Gorge with its rapid river beneath and the largest waterfall in Slovenia.
  • Natural beauties of Lake Bohinj, the largest natural lake in Slovenia.
  • High-mountain road Vrsic pass with fantastic scenery.
  • Emerald Soca River, one of the most pristine Alpine rivers.
  • The stunning Pericnik waterfall, a remnant of the ice age.
  1. Vintgar Gorge or Blejski Vintgar is the 1.6 km long gorge in the Gorenjska region, through which flows the river Radovna with its waterfalls, pools and rapids. It is one of the most popular tourist attractions. The vertical rocks are from 50 to 100 m high, and the height of the slope is 250 m. The Vintgar gorge also includes two man-made sights. The single-arch stone bridge of the Bohinj railway, constructed in 1906, which crosses the gorge 33.5 m above the trail, and the dam from which the water is routed to the small Vintgar hydroelectric power plant under the Šum waterfall.
  2. Lake Bohinj - in the middle of the Triglav National Park. It is the best kept secret of Europe. Certainly "must see" in Slovenia. The largest natural lake in Slovenia, best known for its motive of a stone bridge and the Church of St. John the Baptist. The circular walk around Lake Bohinj is also recommended.
  3. Soča Valley - the valley that connects Slovenia’s highest mountains with the Adriatic Sea has long been a favourite among seekers of active experiences in Europe. Its emerald Soča River is the one of the most pristine Alpine rivers because of its numerous waterfalls and playful cascades, pools and ravines which offer unforgettable, expert-guided kayaking, rafting and canyoning tours, and other thrilling adventures.
  4. Vršič pass - the high-mountain road (1.611 m) from Kranjska Gora through Vršič to village Log in Trenta has 50 serpentines, 24 on the side of Kranjska Gora and 26 on the Trenta side. The Vrsic Pass is the highest pass in Slovenia and the Eastern Julian Alps. On the way to Vršič you can see the Russian Chapel, a natural window in the Prisank mountain face and the Heathen Maiden (Ajdovska deklica).  An amazing experience with fantastic scenery.
  5. 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.
