We stayed here for a couple of days and although the lake is nice, parking is a problem: We bought a three day parking ticket for 20 euros. We parked our car next to the lake outside of town once and we got a parking...More

Visited in March and had perfect weather. It's a beautiful place that is quiet and peaceful. Recommend taking binoculars as there are lots of birds of prey in this area. I also recommend going up the mountain in the cable car. Some of the path...More

Lake Bohij is tranquil and not filled with people at every corner. It is the largest permanent lake in Slovenia. When we were there in May, the weather was a little temperamental. One moment, we were greeted with beautiful blue skies. The next moment, the...More

So glad we took the 2 hour journey to Lake Bohinj! Have previously been to Lake Bled but this is much quieter without any built up hotels and made us feel really at one with nature. Swimming is also allowed for free which was great....More

Relatively unspoilt compared to Lake Bled which is about 20 mins drive away. People could swim (although take flip flops or similar - as pebbly to walk on) Canoeing and other water sports were available there. Plus a boat trip with lovely views of the...More

We went there at the end of June. Go to Vogel for the breathtaking view. It cost three adults and a child about $60 for a trip with the cable car but it was worth every penny.

Lake Bohinj is a quiet location made perfect for campers and hikers. Located within a national park and with the Julian Alps tumbling towards its shores the oftentimes sensational reflections off the water's surface are to be enjoyed. The lake is larger than the nearby...More

Bohinj is about a 45 minute drive from lake Bled. The crystal clear waters of the lake is alluring and there are many trails around the lake. Accommodation is also available and a few good restaurants dot the shores. A short drive down the lake...More

A worthwhile adjunct stop near Lake Bled, Lake Bohinj is quite lovely too, with mountains plunging to the edge of this gorgeous alpine lake, with a fairy-tale-like island that can be visited by boat. If you are going to see Lake Bled, this is a...More

We stayed at hotel Krystal in Ribcev laz. The hotel is a bit away from the lake - like a 5-10 minute walk only, and it was good. Not really fancy, but clean, comfortable and quiet. Very friendly owners who were helpful... More
