About Bohinj

In the heart of the Julian Alps, at the southern edge of the Triglav National Park, Bohinj and its impressive lake are a quieter but no less scenic alternative to Lake Bled. Encompassing the Nomenj and Bohinj valleys, the Poljuka and Jelovica plateaux and Vogel Mountain with its cable car, Bohinj is a fabulous destination for those looking for stunning scenery and plenty of outdoor activities.

As well as the lake and small town of Ribcev Laz don't miss the Savica waterfalls, Mount Vogel and its cable car taking you up to some high altitude walking trails (and a lovely cafe/bar at the top), the Bohinj railway and a huge variety of flora, particularly the flowers in May & June.

During your stay you can indulge in plenty of outdoor activities such as hiking, cycling, horse riding, rafting, kayaking, paragliding and climbing. It is also possible to sail on the lake with an e-boat and cycle the local lanes on an e-bike.

For food lovers, Mohant cheese is the local speciality that claims European destination of origin status - it is a soft, yellow cheese made from cows milk and is known for its strong aroma and spicy flavour, produced in the traditional way. Other local foods include trout, sausage, venison and Zganci. Look out for the "FROM BOHINJ" logo on products which guarantees geographic origin and high quality.

EDEN - the European Destinations of Excellence recognizes Bohinj as a destination where economic growth aims to ensure social, cultural and environmental sustainability.

We look forward to being of service.
