The Vintgarklamm (Slovenian: Blejski vintgar) is a gorge about 4 km northwest of Bled in Slovenia. It can be reached from Bled via the villages of Grad, Grinsce, Sp.-Gorje and Zg.Graben. The gorge belongs to the Triglav National Park and was already developed as a tourist attraction at the end of the 19th century. In addition, the river valley is one of the protected natural monuments.
The gorge was washed out by the Radovna River up to 300 meters deep between the vertical walls of the mountains Hom and Boršt, is about 1600 m long and ends at the 13 m high waterfall Šum. This gives it the largest fall height of all river waterfalls in Slovenia. The Radovna River rises in about 1000 m altitude in the Julian Alps northeast of the Triglav.
A fee-based hiking trail (5 €) takes about 30 minutes via bridges, boardwalks and galleries through the towering gorge.
