Tolmin gorges are one of those hidden and often overlooked pearls of our little country. Well they are not grand like Grand Canyon for example, but it’s the little things that more often than not grow to your heart.
You can get to these gorges by foot from Tolmin following the Tolminka river or alternatively drive there by car.

Leaving the Orsa Björnpark at around 2pm, we headed back south via Falun to the university town of Uppsala.
We might be a small country with even less people, but if we are good at making something, it’s got to be world class athletes. Anže Kopitar is undoubtedly the greatest athlete coming from our little nation. Started to play ice hockey when he was of little age, he advanced quickly, moved to Sweden as a teenager and soon got drafted in NHL by LA Kings team. He immediately proved his worth and has since become one of the best NHL players with high praises from different ice hockey experts, Wayne Gretzky being one of them.
Anže’s view of the ice field is unlike any others and he finished this years play-offs as top scoring player with 26 points in 26 games. His statistic are at the bottom of this page.
One of the first to arrive to the ‘crime scene’ was one of Anže’s biggest fans from his hometown.
Leaving the beauty and serenity of Kolarbyn behind us, we took the road to the North. After making a short stop at Falun, to see the city of one of our favorite metal bands, Sabaton, we continued North, by the lake Siljan to Orsa Grönklitt.
This trip was one of the best in our lives and if we would have to pick a day, that was the best, it was this one.
