"Bohinj valley – a long open basin, through which flows the river Savica, born in the rocks, with light green fairy waters, idyllic sappy meadows, peaceful and inviting friendly villages, surrounded by the picturesque outlines of the mountains, wrapped in dark pine forests, and there is a throne of Triglav high on the clouds" by Julius Kugy
The largest Slovenian lake, more than 4 km long, fascinates visitors in all seasons. Beautiful reflections of nature can be seen on the surface of crystal clear water. Lake Bohinj is ideal for water sports, swimming or walks along the coast.
The footpaths that lead around the lake are ideal for hikers and other sportsmen, as well as for relaxation in pure nature. There are many hidden coves and pebble beaches on the lakeshore. Some places can only be reached by canoe or boat. Jumping into Lake Bohinj’s refreshing water, which warms up to a pleasant temperature, is a great way to cool off in the summer. During the colder months, you may also come across a brave person swimming in the crystal clear water.
The village Ribčev Laz is located on the eastern part of Lake Bohinj. The stone bridge and the church of St. John the Baptist in the background are two attractions that are hard to miss. You can capture the magical reflections on the lake and the sunset colors from the bridge.
A small tourist village in a remote, but most beautiful location by the lake, got its name from the popular belief that the end of the world is here - "u'konc".
In the embrace of the Julian Alps, waterfalls, lakes and meadows, we find coexistence between man and wild nature.
Near the Privillage Stare estate, the river Savica, the primary tributary of the lake, has created a sandy promontory on the western part of the lake. The place has become a popular place for lovers to make eternal vows.
A magical place, suitable for a walk to the lake, where you can have a picnic by the shore or watch the bright starry sky in the evening.
GO FOR A DRIVE …
Swim in the crystal clear glacial Lake Bohinj or admire it from a boat. During the season, you have the opportunity to enjoy nature from a different perspective by taking a panoramic boat ride from one side of the lake to the other.
