Nature at its best.The calmness that you feel as soon as your eye captures this beauty is something that everybody needs to experience once in their lifetime. At one side you have the lake and on other side you have beautiful green grass pastures and you... More

Unlike Bled, this massive lake cannot be traced with the human eye while standing in it’s waters because it kind of snakes around a bend. On one side, there is a thick forest with tall trees that grow right up until the start of the shore. Driving along Bohinj, campers dot this perimeter with brightly colored tents and clotheslines hanging... More

No constructions besides it, and surrounded by mountains. Ita cute and peaceful. Nothing more to say, do some of the hikes in the nearby mountains, there is much to do around

This lake is definitely breathtaking. The water is crystal clear and the surrounding monutnain is also very beautiful. I'm sorry I didn't have much time to walk around, but I would go back there for sure because this place is unspoilt piece of nature and it's very peaceful. In my opinion it's even better than Lake of Bled (which is... More

Very beautiful place, with lot of activity possibilities around it! You can rent all sorts of water equipment, like canoes, SUP-boards and boats, to go around the lake, or into the little island with a church on it. Wonderful place, a definite must see!

Just a thirty minute drive from Lake Bled, the drive is lovely and the lake is very peaceful and not crowded. There is a walking path around the lake and the atmosphere is quiet. A lovely location.

To be honest I didn't spend much time there, I wish I had more time to walk around, lake is nice and the place has one small shop and restaurant near by.

This is such a beautiful place of unspoilt beauty. In the summer you can swim in the crystal clear water, you can hire a boat, go windsurfing.... You can take a tourist boat across the lake too which is well worth it. Or if you enjoy walking, even better walk around the lake and get the boat back. Take a... More

Lake Bohinj is a stunningly beautiful lake with Grand craggy mountains rising steeply on either side. When we visited it was a still day, the lake smooth like glass and the reflections of the mountains were amazing. The town on the lake is also worth a visit.

I have been to many lakes but this is my favourite! if you are looking for a place surrounded by beautiful nature, trout swimming in the clear water at your feet. Wonderful hiking, swimming , kayaking, fishing or just relaxing at the water edge with a picnic then you must visit this beautiful spot.
