Description of Extreme Caving Bled

Explore one of the oldest and most remarkable caves in Slovenia by venturing the deepest parts of the cave, closed off to mainstream tourism. It’s a first-hand experience of cave climbing and descending by rope under the watchful eye of professional caving instructors. Located near Lake Bled, this amazing place invites visitors to discover a marvelous world under the surface of Slovenia’s picturesque Alpine region.

Accompanied by a professional guide, you will embark on an hour-long walk along the north-western edge of the Jelovica Plateau through a wooded wilderness. This forested area is also called ‘the rainforest’, as forestry works are forbidden and nature reigns free.

The entrance to the cave under the giant rocky hill called Babji Zob (Hag’s Tooth) has a rock-shelter, perfect for a snack break. It’s here that you will learn the basic techniques of caving in order to tackle the underground terrain that follows. Definitely not suitable for the claustrophobic and fainthearted, but an absolutely safe activity that presents you with a unique opportunity to see the subterranean workings of nature up close and personal.

Descending down the 300-metre underground gallery where you’ll get the chance to put your newly learnt caving techniques to the test. Passing fantastic formations with calcite crystals and rare snail-shaped dripstones, you make your way deeper into the underground by scaling walls with ropes and dangling in the cave’s mysterious abyss. The cave was discovered by chance 200 years ago by a local villager and plenty of new tunnels and passages have been discovered since, allowing you to explore this incredible place to the fullest. While traversing down the slippery formations, you will learn a lot about the cave and the wildlife that lives there.

It was a first time for me that I did a thing like this. I was quite nervous at the beginning, a bit claustrophobic. But I guess our guide is used to all of that, so he was able to calm me down. And after that first shock, it was amazing. Would do it again actually.

Caving Bled was epic! You get an experience like a proffesional caveman. You get to crawl underneath as well, the only light is your own torch you have. Quite an adrenalin rush, loved it.

Would say this was quite different from other caves I have visited. With a guide we got to see what we otherwise wouldn't on your own.
