Iška is a river of Slovenia. The river is 31 kilometres in length. The gorge of Iški vintgar is one of the most recognizable natural pearls of Slovenia. Iški vintgar is a picturesque gorge carved deeply in the limestone dolomite plateau. Treks are leading us through wild and beautiful areas, which are offered by unspoilt nature of wider range of Iški vintgar. Here you can already breathe in the stunning beautiful landscape along the river Iška hiking. On our way we can see the work made by two rivers, Iška and Zala. In a milion years this two rivers have created their way to the swamp Ljubljansko barje. Of course there are also other very important tributaries of rivers and numerous waterfalls, small cliffs and green refreshing river pools.

 

Iška is a river of Slovenia. This jewel is hidden in forests southern of Ljubljana. Cristal clear Iska stream creates canyon, surrounded by foresty mountains. A place where the locals meet. Hiking, swimming and just hanging out at the Barbeque or campfire. The river is 31 kilometres in length. It gets quieter the more farther you follow the river. Finally you have your secluded quiet place of your own. Nudists use the rocky shelves and swim in the clear waters of the Iški vintgar getting "back to nature". A place where you will breathe peace, quiet and nature. Valleys, small hills and gorges make up a beautiful landscape which will captivate you from the moment you set eyes on it. Naturism is a lifestyle in harmony with nature. But always be aware of Flickr photographers. Along with the numerous rapids, pools, waterfalls and other phenomena in the gorge, we also find indigenous vegetation and numerous animals.

 

The part of the river between Iška vas and Strahomer disappeared underground during the 2010 Slovenia floods, in the night between 20 and 21 September. The Iska River in Slovenia vanished overnight. Residents reported hearing loud crashing and drumming sounds during the night and woke up to find the river was gone. Fish were found flopping on the dry river bed. The river may have moved underground after a crack opened in the riverbed. However, no earthquake was reported. There is a short CBS video about the vanishing river. Take a look here.
