Bohinj – a unique, charming, wonderfully mysterious region in Slovenia, the Alps and Europe

Bohinj is located in the heart of the Julian Alps. The most extensive and highest mountain range in Slovenia is also the most south-eastern part of the Alps. Bohinj encompasses the valley of Nomenj, the Upper and Lower Bohinj Valleys, lake basin, the Pokljuka and Jelovica plateaus and a high mountain range. The most recognisable and astonishing natural site is Lake Bohinj, the biggest lake in Slovenia. The twenty-four villages in and above the valley hide the attractive riches of the past, the cheerfulness of the present and the mystery of the future.

Bohinj in spring

In spring, when the first primroses blossom and meadows and forests are in full bloom, there are more than 1000 different types of flowers that turn Bohinj into a large natural botanical garden. A garden that grows and changes every day. A garden that we do not water, dig through, nor weed... we just let it grow its own way.

This garden is the core of the International Wild Flower Festival. Guided botanical excursions take us to areas of rocks, meadows and forests, where we can see different flowers.

Bohinj in summer

In summer, Bohinj is the perfect place to spend your vacation and find remote and peaceful corners. Enjoy the natural features of Bohinj to the fullest and use public transport, remote car parks that provide transfer to the lake and trailheads.

Always wear proper shoes and use suitable gear when hiking in the mountains. Do not underestimate the mountains and overestimate your capabilities. We assure you that you will take only beautiful memories back home.

Bohinj in autumn

In autumn, Bohinj is draped in beautiful colours and snow starts covering the peaks of mountains. Outside the main summer tourist season, without any crowds, Bohinj is the perfect place for zen and meditation.

This is the time when nature shows the luxurious fragility of its peace when the sounds accompanying wood cutting and the poetic rustling of trees can hardly be heard miles away. And whatever breaks the silence, it sounds even sweeter in autumn. Activities can be different in autumn. Without stress. The lake can still be warm, the hills are still here, fishermen enjoy the peace and quiet.

Bohinj in winter

Bohinj in winter offers idyllic scenes of dreamy nature, remarkably characterised by Lake Bohinj with its thousands of images. Whether or not the winter landscape wears its white cloak, it is not only the lake’s water that makes a strong impression on the landscape.

Along the Shady Hunter's Trail and the Sunny Northern Shore Around Lake Bohinj by Tina
October 30, 2022 · Community
This was my favorite place we visited in Slovenia! We walked along the north trail to Ukanc - lots of beautiful views. The water is so still and clear. Then took the cable car to Vogel Ski Center where we got more beautiful views of the lake and surrounding mountains. Then we took the boat back to Ribcev Laz to finish the day.
