This was a fantastic tour of this enormous cave that has a river running through it. Recommend you take the combined tour option to see the underground part and the 'new' part. They are each 1.5 hours long so you choose the first time and then get assigned the second time. We had 10 am and 2 pm so hiked... More

We were slightly hesitant about going as we had both seen the inside of plenty of caves (that sounds odd!), but believe me when I say that these caves are breathtaking! Eye boggling even. The scale and beauty is something that really is awe inspiring. The only thing that for me was a let down was the speed that we... More

The caves are wonderful, if you happen to go on a cold day after some rain, which luckily happened to us. We weren't allowed to take pictures but no smartphone would be capable of capturing the atmosphere anyways. Go see for yourself! Our guide gave her best. I think she was a little shy regarding her English, so she sounded... More

This place was recommended to us by the local contacts as being more pristine than the more popular Jama caves. It was certainly worth the visit. I was travelling with two young children who enjoyed it very much as well. There was a large group coming for the tour but fortunately the group split into two (Italian group - the... More

We found out about this place by accident while looking into things to do for our trip to Pula, Croatia. It takes about 2 and a half hours from Pula, but was so worth it. It was like exploring another planet! We had 4 kids with us, our 1 and a half year old was a bit young though, he... More

We visited as a group of 4 and loved it. It was so interesting and beautiful. It is very cold so make sure you wrap up warm.

The best cave I have ever been. It has a huge wow factor after the first half, once you reach the river. Its been said here before that it looks like Moria and it's true. I still have to digest it all but it might be the highlight of our trip. Huge caverns with serious amount of awesomeness. You don't... More

Picked this over the Postojna Cave, which I've read is much more touristy. No photos are allowed throughout the tour in the Skocjan caves, but that would probably enhance your experience in the caves, just admiring this unique natural phenomenon. Take the longer walk after you exit the cave at the end of the tour, great scenery along the way.

There is a classic and a new tour , we made the classic. It is 3 km, about 1,5-2 hours tour. There is a beautiful canyon underground, with a quick river. Medium fitness is needed, there are about 500 steps up and down.

Arrived to Škocjan Caves at 9:15am. First thing we did was to go to the lookout point. The view of the valley/gorge was exceptional. The ticket office opened at 9:30am and the tour started at 10am. The tour guide was knowledgable and spoke fluent English. The caves are quite fascinating and the tour took exactly 2 hours from the departure... More
