Guided panoramic boat ride on Lake Bohinj compliments your activities and can be quite an interesting experience for the youngest as well as an environmentally-friendly option to get to the other side of the lake.
Two boats, Bohinj and Zlatorog, ride on Lake Bohinj. They operate from the beginning of April to the start of November. You can board the boats at two entry points, in Ribčev Laz (near the bridge and the Church of St John the Baptist) and in Ukanc (Zlatorog Campsite).
The panoramic ride by tourist boat lasts half an hour in one direction. It is the perfect way to view the surrounding mountains, lake and the surrounding area. The guide on the boat will tell you about Bohinj, its natural and cultural sights, history and development as well as about the current events in the season. Both boats are electrically-driven, thus they are an ecological way to get to the other side of the lake. You can also combine the ride by boat with visiting many other attractions nearby or shorten your walk along the shore of Lake Bohinj.
Bohinj Mobility Card owners can ride the boat for free or get a discount by purchasing any other package that Bohinj has to offer. For more information about the prices and sales go to:
