Just a stone’s throw from the peaceful shores of Lake Bled a unique experience awaits. In other words, seven amazing zip lines will safely take you through the protected area without harming the environment. Join us, and you’ll be rewarded with some of the most breathtaking views of the valley below and across to the Julian Alps and the mighty Mt. Triglav. After all, Zipline Dolinka tour is one of the "5 best things you can do at lake Bled."
The zip line tour
The adventure starts at the meeting point at “Grajska cesta 16”, in the old village centre. When you arrive, you’ll meet your guides and get kitted out with the equipment (helmet, fully equipped safety harness with a pulley). In addition, the group will take a ten minute ride to the starting point above the Sava Dolinka river. Firstly you will be shown, how to use the equipment and do a 20-metre test ride. Then the real adventure begins!
To summarise: in 2.5 hours, you’ll ride seven different zip line cables that bring you down the whole valley. Not less than six of the zip lines take you right across the Dolinka river and the views are breathtaking! Again and again, short walks across the forest and meadows brings us out to the next zip line wire. In contrast to wild wire descents, here you’ll have the chance to relax and enjoy the pristine nature around you. After all, our guides are all local to the area and proud to share their wealth of knowledge with you.
The zip line in a protected area
Above all, our aim is to give visitors an exciting adventure as well as making them aware of the environmental values at the same time.
Nevertheless, as you zoom through the tree-tops you’ll see the river flow through forests and wetlands and how we have created the zip line path with minimal disruption to the environment. To point out, the idea of a natural coexistence is important to us and we hope we can introduce visitors to support sustainable thinking.
In conclusion, by combining these elements we believe we have created a unique experience through which visitors can embark on a thrilling zip lining ride and also learn more about the protected area that surrounds them.
Seven springs of Dolinka river valley
Spring water makes its way through the alluvium of an ancient lake which is saturated with limestone deposits such as travertine. Within this porous stone there are hundreds of life forms creating cups and artificial passages that gather in picturesque, golden-yellow cascades up to ten metres long. These vivid rocks are centuries old and as fragile as lace, one false step could destroy them.
The area named Brje, which means wetland, hides some exceptional and rare plants and is therefore protected as a natural monument. A species of sawgrass is thriving at the foot of a slope and the tiny fen orchid finds the unstable, moist substrate an ideal growing place.
