Zipline Dolinka is an adventure that awaits in the immediate vicinity of Lake Bled. Ziplining through the Sava Dolinka valley is just the perfect way of traveling through the protected area since cables have minimal impact on the environment and enable outstanding views over the river and the valley below, as well as over the Julian Alps and the mighty Mt. Triglav.
The adventure starts at the meeting point at “Grajska cesta 16”, in the old village centre. Here the participants meet the guides, get the equipment (helmet, fully equipped safety harness with a pulley). After a 10-minute ride to the starting point above the Sava Dolinka river, you will be shown how to use the equipment and do a 20-meter test ride. Then the real adventure starts!
In 2.5 hours, you will ride seven different zipline cables that bring you down the whole valley. Six of the ziplines take you right across the Dolinka river. Believe us, the views from the ziplines are breath-taking! A short walk across the forest and meadows will lead you from one zipline to another. This will give you a chance to relax, enjoy the pristine nature, get familiar with the life of the protected valley and take pleasure in the views over the surrounding villages, hills and mountains.
You are going to be accompanied by our guides, the first supporters and storytellers, describing the valley that, even in the modern world, reminds us of the meaning of the intact environment.
The Zipline in a protected area
Our aim is enabling a wonderful experience for the visitors who love being active and making them aware of the environmental values at the same time.
We combine the elements that complement and support each other: the attractive surroundings of the zipline through the valley, where the river flows through forests and wetlands, supports the idea of the natural coexistence and serves as a background that makes the guests wish to support sustainable thinking. The tour is a nice combination of an adrenalin ride on zipline cables and a guided natural trip through the valley of the Sava Dolinka river. While the guests are enjoying some spectacular views, they also have a chance to get to know and love the life in the environment that surrounds them.
Seven springs of Dolinka river valley
The spring-water finding a way through the alluvium of an ancient lake is saturated with limestone depositing it at a location as a travertine. Within the porous stone there is hundreads of life forms creating cups and artificial passages gethering in a picturesque, some ten meter long golden – yellowish cascades. A vivid rock soaring before our eyes is fragile like a lace therefore just one false step can destroy that masterpiece of centuries.
The area with the name B’rje which means wetland, hides-some exceptional and rare plants and is therefore protected as a natural monument. A stand of Saw-grass, a vulnerable plant is thieving at the foot of a slope while a tiny Fen orchid finds an unstable moisty substrate as an ideal growing place.
