Holiday Travel Guide

Lake Bohinj showing mountains and a lake or waterhole
Enjoy views of Slovenia’s tallest mountain from its largest lake in the scenic terrain of Triglav National Park.

Green, mossy mountains are reflected in the pristine water of Lake Bohinj. Slovenia’s largest lake is known for its fantastic mountain peaks that dominate the vista in every direction. Appreciate the tranquility and enjoy the fresh alpine air in this serene setting.

Embark on a stroll along the perimeter of the lake with spectacular views of the water. Meander through the trees and stop for a picnic with the sounds of wildlife calls. The entire circuit around the lake is 7 miles (12 kilometres) and should take 4 or 5 hours to complete. Encounter the statue of the legendary Goldhorn chamois, which is a buck from Slovenian tales about treasure and love.

Swim in the clean water at shallow beach areas on the western and eastern pockets of Lake Bohinj. Fishing is popular here in summer for the trout, char and mollusks native to this lake. Rent a bike to follow one of the 15 cycling paths around the park. In winter, people often walk across the frozen lake.

Gaze up at Mount Triglav, which is 9,396 feet (2,864 metres) tall and the highest mountain in Slovenia. It is the showpiece of the Triglav National Park. Stroll through a patch of forest at the western end of the lake to reach the Vogel cable car that takes passengers to the mountain.

Find out about the geography of the lake, which is 2.5 miles (4 kilometres) long and 0.5 miles (1 kilometre) wide. Several streams, including Savica, flow into the lake. Although it appears that far more water leaves than enters the lake, this is explained by additional subterranean water sources.

Stay at one of the hotels in Ribčev Laz. From here you can take a boat trip for a small fee. As part of Triglav National Park, Lake Bohinj lies in its namesake valley in the Julian Alps. It is just northwest of Ribčev Laz, surrounded by the villages of Ukanc, Bohinjsko Jez and Stara Fužina.
