A round-trip hike: one way through the gorge with various return options

We invite you to experience the Vintgar gorge – the enchanting image of which you find enticing online – in a slightly different way in the coming season. Discover the secrets and images of its immediate environs.

For this purpose, we have prepared a round-trip hike, which will present the gorge to you as you have never experienced it before. You will be captivated by the pristine nature, and by the untamed Alpine beauty of the Radovna river, carving the depths of the gorge for thousands of years. The stunning views of the landscape opening up in front of you will delight you and magic up an unforgettable day.

In order to reduce the risks related to the novel coronavirus, we have also introduced a new visitation regime. We kindly ask you to read and follow the instructions below, and above all, to show understanding. The instructions have been prepared to minimize the possibility of a COVID-19 infection in visitors and employees.

The entry and exit points have been separated. It will not be possible to return through the gorge. This will prevent close encounters at the narrow sections of the route. The entrance will be at the log cabin in the village Podhom, and the exit at the Šum waterfall in Blejska Dobrava.  Visitors will be able to choose between different circular routes to return to your entry point. All routes are clearly marked on the information boards and signposts along the route.

Circular Route Vintgar – Saint Catherine

Circular path Šum – Blejska Dobrava – ‘Strma stran’


Please note that the round trip will take you from 2 to 3 hours in total. We recommend that you wear hiking clothes and boots. Hiking poles may also come in handy.


Visitors are kindly asked to buy tickets on-line at our website www.vintgar.si

At the entrance, you can present a printed ticket, or have it open on the phone in order to scan the QR code. When buying a ticket on-line, you will need to choose the date and the time of the visit. It is essential that you stick to your chosen date and time, as there is a strict limit on the number or visitors that can enter the gorge at an allocated time.

It is still possible to buy tickets and souvenirs in the log cabin box office at the entrance. The bar is operating with certain limitations, in accordance with current regulations. Please be sure to keep a minimum safety distance of 1.5 m when queuing. In the gorge, we recommend a safety distance of at least two meters and compliance with all the other recommendations.

We ask all groups of visitors to announce their arrivals at [email protected].
We are available to answer your questions at [email protected] or on the phone number +386 51 621 511.
We will be very happy to advise and help you!

Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to welcoming you!
