Lake Bohinj offers a wealth of walking and cultural experiences. Take the cable-car up to Mount Vogel at 1,530m and enjoy a bird’s eye view of the lake or follow Sava Bohinjka river down into the valley. The forests and meadows with their alpine flora and fauna, the waterfalls and caves, the hamlets with their local churches, stone bridges and typical Alpine style houses, will make for an unforgettable holiday experience in Lake Bohinj. Try and spot a chamois, eagle, bear or lynx whilst rambling, take a relaxing boat ride on the lake, go fishing, and don’t forget to try one of the local cheeses, wines or the famous ‘Zlatorog’ beer.
