Answered by Turizem Bohinj · March 21, 2022 · Turizem Bohinj
Dear Priscilla, there is still a lot of snow in the mountains, also in the Valley of Seven Lakes, so we do recommend you to wail until June for hiking. In this time of a year you need winter equipment and usually people do the ski touring, which is demanding, especially if you do not know the area. Best wishes!
