Like a Fairy Tale.” is the perfect description of our resort in every season of the year, and we plan to increase our profile with it and give our visitors this fairy-tale feeling. We are determined to seize the opportunities offered by our location in the heart of the Triglav National Park (TNP). Vogel cable car takes you to 1535 metres above sea level throughout the year (except during the maintenance periods). In this way viewpoints high in the mountains are easily accessible and also make an excellent starting point for hikers. You can choose from single or return cable car tickets. The cable car can transfer up to 950 people per hour. The Orlove glave quad chairlift also operates during the summer season (mid-June to end of September) and provides a single or a return ride in the pleasantly refreshing summer climate. It stops at the top of Orlove glave with a paragliding take-off point close by. « less

At the top there are the most magnificent views of Lake Bohinj and the surrounding mountains . We took a smaller open cablecar further up the mountain and because we were cold , came straight down again .We... More

Vogel is a ski resort on a hilltop near lake Bohinj. It is easily acsesible with a 5min gondola ride, which offers great view over the lake Bohinj and the valley. It is also possible to walk to the top. It takes about 2 hours, but you should take into consideration, that the inclination can be over 45%, meaning it... More

The views down the lake and up the mountains as the cable car ascends are spectacular. On the top there are so many varieties of alpine habitat that the floral diversity is vast. There were also plenty of signs that mouton had been roaming around here recently (fresh droppings). We walked up the hill away from the top of the... More

As hikers we found the cable car was a great way to access some of the peaks in the area. The cable car itself was pretty amazing - we've never been on one so steep before! We went on a day when it was drizzly and wet but we quickly passed through some of the lower clouds to end up... More

Incredible views at the top of the Vogel cable car which takes you from the lake to the top in only a couple of minutes! Worth the trip.

We visited Vogel in July 2012 and the great views of the Triglav National Park gave us inspiration for our hiking holiday this year

We used the ski lift and visited the ski centre all very efficient. We also walked towards Vogel for two hours but decided to turn. Back as the terrain was very steep the snow was slippery in June as it was melting.We are. Pensioners and I am sure younger walkers would find it easier.

we took the cable car to the mountain top. the views were stunning. There was plenty to see and do for about 45 minutes on the mountain top. If you're a hiker etc. there is plenty to do to spend a good part of a day. this was definitely a highlight of our trip to slovenia.

For the beginners ski resort is OK, but you will have one track with chair lift. Other tracks are covered with anchor lifts and as a beginner skier (children also) you might have difficulties getting on top of ski tracks. For those who already have some experience on skis, if the highest ski slope (Šija) is closed you will find... More
