Bohinj – Lake, Waterfall and Mountains


Bohinj is the best known for its Lake. It is about 85 km from the capital Ljubljana, by car you need 1 h and 15 minutes. From Ljubljana you can take a bus Arriva, it will take around 2 hours and it costs 8.30 EUR one way or 14.94 EUR return ticket. There you can choose many activites, specially in warm days. I highly recommend you to take a wonderful tourist boat ride.

Waterfall Savica

Close to Bohinj Lake you can find amazing Waterfall Savica. From the village Ribčev Laz to the Waterfall Savica you need 15 minutes by car. There you have to pay parking 4 EUR/3 hours or 8 EUR/day. During summer (till 27th of September) you can take a free bus from Lake Bohinj to the Waterfall. The entrance to the Waterfall is 3 EUR for adults, 1.50 EUR for children (7 to 14 years old) and 2.5 EUR for students and seniors. From the parking to the Waterfall you have to go by foot around 20 minutes but it is easy walk. It is worth to visit.

Mountains around Bohinj

Around Bohinj you can walk on more than 300 km marked mountain trails. I would like to suggest you two popular mountains, on different sites of Lake Bohinj. There are Vogel and Vogar. To Vogel I highly recommend to take the cable car. More about it you can read here.

Opposite of the mountain Vogel you can visit Vogar. In Bohinj you have to pay parking almost everywhere so I suggest you to take a free bus to the Stara Fužina. We decided for bike tour, from camp Danica in Bohinjska Bistrica to Stara Fužina. It is easy (around one hour) and panoramic ride, also suitable for children. At camp Danica the parking is 2 EUR for all day during summer and for free out of season. From Stara Fužina you need one hour and half to Vogar by foot but it is really worth to visit. From there you can enjoy amazing view over lake Bohinj or paraglading.
