This three-hour-long train ride along the Bohinj railway will undoubtedly be an unforgettable experience for any true rail enthusiast. The views of Lake Bled, passing through numerous gorges, crossing many tunnels, the longest of which measures 6,327 m (3.93 miles), never fail to impress. Make sure your cameras are at hand!

This was one of our highlights in Slovenia. A lot of fun to be on a real 1900’s steam engine. As you travel, you get covered in a lot of smoke from the train, but the entertainment is good and the vistas are beautiful. The...More

This is more than just a steam train journey through beautiful landscapes, although it certainly has all of that. You are greeted by immaculately turned out train guards, a shining locomotive and an accordion player which gives a great feel for the trip. Once you...More

When visiting Slovenia, this excursion is a must if you enjoy hob-knobing with the locals and love cultural immersion. Maybe it was because we had a large group of local tourists, there was not much by way of english translation during the train ride, but...More

Great trip on a historic train! Very picturesque was the participation of arch-duke Franz Ferdinand and his wife who opened the railway in a ceremony in Bled Jezero station. Also great boat trip on beautiful river Soča.

I was hoping to leave Ljubljana early on 6 June and travel by bus to Franc. I was hoping to catch the cable car there - we are two older Australians so walking is not always easy for me, but okay if reasonably flat.. I thought we could catch the boat back to Ribcev Laz and have a quick look around then catch the bus to Bohinjska Bistrica. I want to do the Bohinj Rail trip to Nova Gorica and would like to go to Jesenice and then back to Lake Bled. The problem I have is the trains spends too much time in Jesenice to then go to Bled. Would I miss very much if we got out at Bled Jerico instead of going all the way through? We want to stay in Bled the night to explore Lake Bled the same day. The next day we plan to catch the train to Vienna at 8.13 am. Is this doable? I have looked at train times and the train spends hours in Jesenice, making it difficult to see all of this. I originally planned to see Ljubljana then take the normal Behinj rail route as the steam train is not working on that day. With more reading I would love to fit in Lake Behinj, but is this possible? Sorry to complicate things. If the trains ran closer together I believe it is possible, as we do this sort of thing all the time, but not sure it is practical. I cannot find the bus timetables to see how things link up that way. It is a pity the trains are not conducive to such travel. Mind you I always seem to stretch things. Thank you for answering my other questions. Very Much appreciated. Happy 2018. We are really looking forward to seeing Slovenia. Not many Australian seem to do that. With thanks,Carolyn We would get out of the train at Bled Jezero but need to catch the train back to Vienna from Leste-Bled. Hubby is very concerned we will not be able to catch a taxi from our hotel to Leste-Bled in the early morning.

You will go past Lake Bohinj but you will not really see it. For a proper look, you would want to get off the train for a while and walk to the lake. The rest of the route takes you through remote and beautiful landscapes... More
