Tolmin Gorge on 19Sep2018 Day 5 3pax Family Holiday in Slovenia 15-21Sep2018

tolmin gorge

after a full satisfying breakfast at our apartment wallace in bovec, we drove 50mins to tolmin gorge on 19.9.2018. ^^

we parked at the carpark at the entrance. parking is free. we paid entrance fee was €4pax for adults at a small wooden hut at the gorge entrance.

tolmin gorge is actually two gorges. the tolminka gorge and zadlaščica gorge. the confluence of both rivers, is the sotočje.

the beautiful colours of the river, from turquoise to emerald depending on the play of sunlight, reflections and mineral in the water.

the tolminka gorge is the most beautiful, stunning. whether looking over from the devils’ bridge, or walking alongside at the lower level.

from the bridge it was a short walk along the road to the carpark. the easy hike and picturesque outing took us just about 1 hr 10mins.
