It's hard to pull yourself away from the fairytale setting of Lake Bled, but less than three mile's drive is Vintgar Gorge. This magical gorge looks straight out of the Hobbit, with its technicolor pools and waterfalls. The gorge carves its way through the rocks of the Hom and Bort hills and visitors walk a trail that ends with a bridge overlooking the Sum waterfall. Originally the gorge was impassable, but due to its natural beauty a trail was built to help attract more tourists to Bled. Today, the gorge is one of the area's main attractions so to avoid crowds, visit during the week in the early morning or late afternoon.
