Description of caving Slovenia

Explore one of the oldest and most remarkable caves in Slovenia. 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.

Upon reaching the cave’s entrance under the giant rocky hill called Babji Zob (Hag’s Tooth) due to its peculiar shape, it’s time for a snack break and an opportunity to learn about the wonder you are about to enter.

Descending down the 300-metre underground gallery, the cave opens up to reveal fantastic dripstone formations with calcite crystals and the extremely rare helecitite snail-shaped dripstones. These subterranean phenomena were formed during the ice age, when the enormous Bohinj glacier invaded this alpine valley. The cave was discovered by chance some 200 years ago by a local villager and has been a tourist attraction since before WWII. Plenty of new tunnels and passages have been discovered since, including a passage leading right to the back of the cave, which is now also accessible to visitors. The caving experience lasts approx. one hour, during which you will learn about the origins of the cave, the wildlife that lives there and many other interesting facts about this subterranean miracle.

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.

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.
