Lake Bohinj

Within the Triglav National Park lies another of Slovenia’s must visit lakes, Lake Bohinj, the country’s largest glacial lake. There are hiking trails around the lake where you can appreciate a range of views gazing down onto the clear, blue waters whilst being surrounded by stunning forested mountains. A loop of the entire lake is around 12km and take approximately 4 hours from start to finish.

It is also possible to a take a scenic but moderately demanding walk to the Savica Waterfall which offers spectacular views of the Bohinj valley. You can also marvel at the sheer beauty of the region from atop Mount Vogel accessed by cable car which climbs to just over 1500 metres.

Whilst Lake Bled attracts the biggest crowds, a visit to Lake Bohinj offers a quieter experience with equally breathtaking nature and the opportunity to hike the various walking trails, take a swim in the crystal clear waters and pay a visit to the Church of St John the Baptist located right on the shores of the country’s largest lake. A bike route that links the towns of Bled and Bohinj (approximately 30km) which takes you on a very scenic route through forest paths, farming villages and rolling mountains in the backdrop is under construction. Hiring bikes can be arranged with your hotel in Bled.
