Take a break from hustle and bustle – spend a day in the heart of the Julian Alps
Enjoy your day next to the biggest natural lake in Slovenia with water temperature rising to 22°C in the summer. Visit the church of St. John the Baptist, home to some of the oldest frescoes in Slovenia and experience a panoramic boat ride across the lake. Take a cable car ride up to Mt Vogel, an ideal starting point for short or long hiking tours. Hungry? Enjoy lunch with a view before returning to the valley.
All of this is on offer in Bohinj.
