“even better than Lake Bled”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We really liked Lake Bled but we liked Lake Bohinj even more. It is quieter & has even better scenery. I felt like I was in the scenery from the Sound Of Music!

We were there on a Monday in September & there was not a lot of tourists so we loved that. I am not sure how crowded it is in season.

It's an easy drive from lake Bled- we came right from Vintgar Gorge & it took around an hour to drive there.

The scenery was stunning. The only negative is you have to pay for parking everywhere!

We took the ski gondola to the summit at Vogel & the views were outstanding. The day was cloudy & overcast so we couldn't see all the mountains but it was still terrific anyway.

Bring a jacket as it's cold at the top!

There's not much to see in the town- the beauty is in the lake area so we didn't stop there.

we highly recommend it if you love beautiful scenery.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Great nature, amazing paths. Lot of fish in the lake. Probably good to swim in the summer. Next time I will bring my MTB.

“Cow ball and festival a blast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We arrange to attend the festival and were not disappointed. The lake is beautiful - bigger than Bled, but not nearly as crowded. A great place to sail or canoe.

“Lake Bohinj”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

A great place to visit if you like the outdoors. Very scenic, and the walk along the northern half of the lake is a delight.
