Create an itinerary including Škocjan Caves
Explore the largest known underground canyon in the world at Škocjan Caves, a World Heritage Site famous for its many waterfalls, diverse stalactite formations, and limestone pools. The caves feature 6 km (3.7 mi) of underground passages and one of the largest underground halls. With a total depth of over 200 m (656 ft), this system of limestone caves was inhabited as early as Mesolithic times. On your way through, you will pass a 116 m (380 ft) long tunnel, a dry river bed, a so-called "silent cave" and "murmuring cave." Look out for the huge stalagmites called the Giants and the Organ. The highlight of the trip is crossing over a 45 m (148 ft) high bridge. Bring a light jacket and put on good walking shoes since the paths can be slippery. Put Škocjan Caves and other Škocjan attractions into our Škocjan day trip tool, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Impressive cave system with underground gorge. The trails are concrete, includes steps. Everything is safe, but they normally take 100 people and split in three groups at the entrance. There are several ways you may choose at the exit. If you don't feel physically fit yourself, take right at the exit and follow the trail up to the elevator, goes at least every 5 minutes or even often. +12 degrees inside, might be very humid if river is warm.
  • Incredible underground network of caves that takes a couple of hours on a guided tour. The concrete walkway is lit, and has hand rails but not suitable for anyone unsure on their feet. Well worth the extra 250m walk at the end to see the viewpoint on a clear day! There is car parking on site, with toilets and a cafe.
