This activity is simply brutal. The day was excellent thanks to our guide who was 5 stars. From the beginning when he picked us up from the hotel until the end of the trip he was a super attentive and helpful person. He explained everything about the breathtaking and postcard-worthy landscapes we passed, and we made stops at the right places to take pictures that are for life. The activity of kayaking in the mine is simply fantastic and different. From the entrance to the mine through the old miners' trains until the descent and then discovering the various underground tunnels in the kayak was all exceptional. The guide who guided us in the adventure through the mine was also very friendly and informative. I just think that due to the exercise and effort that is done inside the mine and as the kayak activity ends around lunchtime, they could offer a snack for people to compose themselves a bit. But I definitely recommend it. It was brutal.
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.
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 !!
A very special experience !!! Kayaking on crystal clear water underground, it really is an experience! We will always remember it!
