Located in the lovely village of Bohinjska Bistrica - a 10-minute bus journey from Lake Bohinj - the Bohinj-ECO is a family-friendly hotel with an environmental conscience. The hotel is modern and comfortable with spacious rooms and picturesque views, providing a tranquil retreat for your stay.

Explore the picturesque village and scenic trails

Browse the shops and sample local treats from the bakery. There are scenic walking trails right on your doorstep and it's just 10 minutes by bus to Lake Bohinj. The hotel is also conveniently close to the train station - hop on board and enjoy the picturesque journey to Nova Gorica and Bled.

Excellent pool and spa facilities

A paradise for families - the connected Aquapark has everything the children need for a good time and is great for adults too - swim in the pools, enjoying soothing whirlpools and water jets. Crank up the adrenaline and take the wild river, or try over-water bouldering. There's also plenty of quiet spots if you're seeking a bit of rest and relaxation - head to the panoramic wellness area in the main hotel, which is reserved for over 18s and has a beautiful indoor pool, saunas and a steam room. You also get one free entry to the sauna park that's part of the Aquapark. You won't need to leave the hotel to have fun, but with tonnes of adventures to enjoy nearby, we recommend you do.

Standing out for sustainable practices, the hotel uses geothermal heating and smart systems to manage energy use and waste.

Lake Bohinj

Name a lake in Slovenia, and most will point to the famously photogenic Lake Bled – but there’s another, wilder and equally beautiful, lake just west and it is the perfect spot for a summer holiday. Lake Bohinj basks in the untamed nature of Triglav National Park, where footpaths lead between stone villages, rugged mountains, rushing rivers and forested lakeshores. Amongst these atmospheric, lesser-trodden trails, it’s easy to believe that this is the realm of the mythical gold-horned chamois (and the less mythical eagle and ibex).

Walking in the Triglav National Park

The mountains might be dramatic, but much of walking around Lake Bohinj is easy-going. Footpaths ramble between forests and wildflower meadows, waterfalls and caves, and hamlets decorated with half-timbered houses, stone bridges and churches. Mostnica Gorge is a hiking highlight, awash with rapids and waterfalls, as well as the myth-wreathed Devil’s Bridge. There are plenty of challenges too - look up (and up) to the surrounding limestone peaks of the Julian Alps. Height-loving hikers can clamber up the rocky paths to Mount Vogel – or there’s always the cable car that takes you to the restaurant and Alpine trails above.

Explore Lake Bohinj: let us count the ways

Fancy heading out onto the water? Wooden boats cruise Lake Bohinj, panoramic windows framing the forests and mountains all around. Paddleboards are also a popular choice, dedicated bathing areas invite swimmers into the emerald-green waters, and cycling, canyoning and paragliding are all up for grabs too. Just make sure to try one of the local delicacies, such as Bohinjski sir cheese or the shandy-like grapefruit lager brewed in Ljubljana – always best enjoyed with a lake view.

Bohinjska Bistrica Village

Many visitors stay in Bohinjska Bistrica – a rural village seven kilometres from Bohinj, with a museum, restaurants, a church and a crystal-clear river running through it. The train station is a motorail that carries vehicles and passengers to Lake Bled or to the modernist town of Nova Gorica, right against the Italian border – but not before plunging through the mountains via the longest railway tunnel in Slovenia first. Above Bohinjska Bistrica, the Pokljuka Plateau is a popular starting point for walks, with dense forests and pretty alpine meadows, plus the idyllic Planina Zajamniki Mountain Pasture with its traditional wooden houses and views for miles.

Visit Lake Bled

The Insta-famous vistas of Lake Bled are just a 20-minute train journey or 40-minute bus ride away from Lake Bohinj. This is the Slovenia of postcards and guidebooks the world over, where a church-topped island perches in the middle of a forest-fringed lake. Here, gondola-like pletna boats continue their centuries-old tradition of ferrying visitors between Bled town and the island. It’s easy to spend a day here, hiking or cycling the lakeside paths, diving into the family-friendly lido and summer toboggan, and wining and dining in Bled town – all while the fairy-tale fortifications of Bled Castle look on.
