Full description
Depart from your Bled hotel for an 8-hour kayaking adventure through an underground mine. Drive two hours to the abandoned mine and descend for 15 minutes into the depths of the earth on an original old mining train. The tour involves a short hike and a climb down and up some steep stairs that reach depths of 95 meters. Upon reaching the underground water, row in your sit-on-top kayaking through passages and galleries. Spend four hours in the mine and enjoy the mix of dynamic activities, with a bit of both hiking and paddling. Illuminate your way with glowing headlamps, the only source of light in the mine. All the dry suits, boots, life vests, helmets and lights are provided. At the conclusion of your tour, you will be brought back to your Bled hotel. The tour lasts for about eight hours in total, with departures always only in the morning from Bled, the departure time depending on availability. You will be notified about the exact departure time before the day of the tour.

The journey from Bled is relatively long but the guide made it interesting. You learn a lot about the region and come to stops at interesting places. That makes you want more Slovenia. On the kayak tour I expected more. You keep driving or pushing yourself down a dead end in a star-shaped labyrinth on the walls. The time in the kayak is very short in relation to the total time, but more time in the kayak does not improve it either. The train ride up the mountain is quite fun. You get an impression of how miners drove into the mountain. I would probably have preferred the underground mountain bike tour. Overall, it was good thanks to the guides and organization.

Had a nice time!

Lovely scenery on the way there. The mine train was interesting and going through the tunnels in kayaks was something we never were able to do anywhere else and really fun. Be aware there’s not much actual kayaking to be done, as most tunnels are too narrow, so you just pull yourself through with your hands on the wall. It was a bit awkward that some people on our kayaking mine tour got lunch, but this tour didn’t include it, so we just sat and waited for others to eat. Bring lunch, not just snacks!

This trip has been a favorite of mine!! The guides were very nice and outgoing! The drive to the mines was beautiful!! Along with sites, the guide had given us history of the area, up to the point of arriving to our next sguide underground. !! It was a fun trip, definitely recommend it and would go again !!
