Lake Bohinj – in the heart of Zlatorog's kingdom
68 km from Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport
Just over 20 minutes' drive from Bled, in the heart of the kingdom of the mythical golden-horned chamois Zlatorog, where the splendour of nature extends in all its unique and enchanting magnificence, lies Lake Bohinj. In the late 1960s this anteroom of Slovenia's mountain paradise enchanted the famous writer Agatha Christie, who holidayed here. Voted a European Destination of Excellence 2018, in recent years Lake Bohinj has become the holiday spot of choice for those seeking genuine experiences with breathtaking views.
Embraced by the high mountains, you will feel the true essence of the Gorenjska region, meet friendly locals, sample local specialities and enjoy unforgettable experiences in a natural setting of perfect peace and tranquillity. Set off along the footpaths of the Triglav National Park, go horse riding, explore the subterranean kingdom of the dragon Govic, or cycle along the Bohinj Cycling Route. Explore the underwater world of Lake Bohinj with an experienced diving guide, swim in the crystal-clear water or enjoy a spot of fishing. Take to the skies with a tandem paraglider, or let a modern cable car carry you high above the clouds to where the Vogel zip line will satisfy your desire for adrenaline-boosting thrills.
