VOGEL DURING THE GREEN SEASON

If you love hiking, Vogel is an excellent starting point for shorter and longer hiking tours. You can also take a walk along the new Vogel Trail, where you will discover a lot of interesting information about Vogel's history and nature. You can even explore the Lopata virgin forest  or take the quad chairlift to Orlove Glave , where you can ring a wishing bell. Whatever you decide to do, you will enjoy spectacular views of the Julian Alps and Bohinj every step of your way.

See (and taste) for yourself the benefits of traditional cheese making in the Zadnji Vogel mountain pasture, and enjoy in the company of playful goats, curious sheep and happy cows. And do not forget to try the delicious food and drink. If the night falls too quickly, Vogel also provides for comfortable accommodation.

 

VOGEL DURING THE WINTER SEASON

In winter, Vogel transforms into a well known mountain ski center with natural snow and fantastic views. It offers a wide range of activities for every kind of taste (skiing, snowboarding, ski touring, free skiing, cross-country skiing, sledging, airboarding, winter tandem paragliding) and different levels of ability. Children can have fun at the children's park free of charge, and those who like acrobatic tricks can try out the Vogel snow park.
