The very best of beautiful Bohinj….

bohinj…according to our experiences, that is. Only 30 km away from its more touristy neighbour, Lake Bled, Lake Bohinj is much more than only a swim-inviting waterbody surrounded by picturesque Alpine mountains. It’s a popular spot with locals, whether they come for a refreshing swim or a (probably exhausting) climb up the slopes of the mountains. The largest glacial lake of Slovenia lies in the heart of the Triglav National Park, the only national park of the country. The highest peak in the Julian Alps, Mount Triglav, is located in the centre of the park and is a national icon. It can even be found on the flag of Slovenia! The Triglav NP area has a lot to offer, and it’s worth visiting for all types of traveller. We arrived in Ribčev Laz, at the eastern tip of the lake, with our five-year-old in the backseat, our bikes attached to the trunk and lots of anticipation in our minds.
