The largest natural lake in Slovenia with endless opportunities for outdoor activities. Lake Bohinj is located in a glacial valley and it comprises almost 100 million cubic metres of water – according to an old Bohinj joke: no more than a bucket if it is large enough. The steeply descending lake…
In summer this place is less crowded than Lake Bled. Bohinj Lake has pristine nature, with gorgeous scenery.
Lake Bohinj is Slovenia`s largest glacial lake and it’s about half an hour drive from Bled. It is considered as one of the most beautiful places in Slovenia. The Alps dominate the scenery and on a clear, sunny, calm day the water looks like a piece of glass reflecting everything so perfectly. If you…
If you go to Lake Bled, the visit to Lake Bohinj is a must. It's a less visited, less touristy, calmer version and even more beautiful in my opinion. It's also possible to swim in this lake in the summer.
Enjoy views and take a swim in a nicely cold lake after a hike on one of the multiple hills and mountains around it.
“Waterfall Savica is possibly the most famous and the most beautiful and dramatic waterfall in Slovenia. Some say it is ‘too touristy’, but there is a reason a place is ‘too touristy’ and that reason is because the place is so incredibly beautiful. Why should not as many people as possible enjoy it?”
“Alpine lakes, majestic mountains, green valleys, beautiful rivers, spectacular waterfalls, attractive gorges, lush green pastures, sweeping vistas and more. The Triglav National Park has it all. It is the only Slovenian national park and one of the oldest European parks (established in 1981). It covers 4% of the entire Slovenia (880 square kilometers), almost across the entire area of the Julian Alps. The specific feature is its dynamic intact nature and its richness of vegetation and numerous endangered animals. Not so far from the city bustle and only about 10 minutes drive from Bled you can enjoy in the pure and intact nature.”
“Mostnica Gorge is located in the surrounding area of Lake Bohinj, about 35 minutes drive from the Bled area. The best place to start the exploration of Mostnica Gorge is in the Stara Fuzina village, where you pass the Zois’ mansion right up to Devil’s Bridge. Not far from the bridge is a trailhead that leads through a forest, where you can view this beautiful gorge. The crystal clear Mostnica stream has carved a 2-kilometer gorge and you can observe interesting creatures of nature along the trail, i.e. waterfalls, pools etc. A hollow rock which got the name “Little Elephant” is especially interesting, since it emerged when the water broke through a rock. The hike takes about one and a half hour and it’s a quite comfortable hike.”
“Amazing place - like a fairytale! Stunning views of the valley, the lake...definitely worth it! Also great for hiking during summer months. ”
