Tolmin Gorge Tours

Tolmin Gorge
Located at the confluence of two rivers in northern Slovenia, Tolmin Gorge is one of the gateways to Triglav National Park. Known for its stunning scenery, crystal clear waters, moss-covered canyons, and rocky outcrops, Tolmin Gorge is one of Slovenia’s best natural attractions.
 
The Basics
You can explore Tolmin Gorge via a well-marked loop trail on two levels—a boardwalk and gravel trail runs along the Tolminka River, while a series of steps reveal views of Bear’s Head and grant access to Dante’s Cave and Devil’s Bridge. Located in a cave beneath Devil’s Bridge, you’ll also find a secluded thermal spring.

Visitors can purchase tickets to just the gorge or opt for combo ticket that also includes entry into Javorca Memorial Church. It’s also possible, and more convenient, to visit Tolmin Gorge as part of a day trip to Triglav National Park from either Bled or Ljubljana; tours typically includes stops at the Kozjak and Boka Waterfalls, and offer the chance to go white-water rafting on the Soca River.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Tolmin Gorge is a must-see for nature lovers.
  • There is an entrance fee to access the gorge.
  • Bring water and wear sturdy shoes as some parts of the trail can be slippery.
  • Don’t forget your swimsuit and towel if you’re planning to swim and bring a flashlight or headlamp if you want to explore Dante’s Cave.
  • Don’t forget your camera, as there are plenty of beautiful vistas in the gorge.
  • Day tours from Bled or Ljubljana can last around 12 hours.
 
How to Get There

Tolmin Gorge is located around 1.2 miles (2 kilometers) from Tolmin, a town in northern Slovenia. During the summer, there’s a shuttle that runs between Tolmin and Tolmin Gorge. There’s a parking lot at the trailhead for those planning to drive.
 
When to Get There
Tolmin Gorge is open from April to the second week of November. During July and August, guided tours are provided every Monday. Expect to spend about an hour and a half to two hours completing a round trip of the gorge.
 
Javorca Memorial Church

Built by soldiers in WWI, the Church of the Holy Spirit in Javorca honors fallen Austro-Hungarian soldiers, whose names are inscribed inside the church. Awarded the European Heritage Label, the church is one of the landmarks along the Walk of Peace Trail, which covers around 199 miles (320 kilometers) of varied and sometimes steep terrain in Slovenia and Italy. The trail connects numerous heritage and memorial sites, including 15 outdoor museums, from the Isonzo Front. Some of the larger sites can be accessed by car, while other sites can only be accessed by foot or bike.
