In summer the nature explodes in this valley! If you love hiking, do not miss the opportunity to visit the surroundings, walking along paths and dirt roads.

Take a trip to the magnificent Savica Falls, famous all over Slovenia, with their 78m high: a must-see show! And of course mountain bike enthusiasts will not be disappointed: bike park, private trails and festivals await you!

2. Lake Bohinj and its wonders

This is the largest lake in Slovenia, located not far from Bled, but wilder and less inhabited indeed. This picturesque place, where motor boats are prohibited, is perfect to practice water sports: from rafting to canoeing, from fly fishing to diving! And to have a glimpse of the lake and its surroundings, take the cable car to Vogel and enjoy the panorama from above!

3. Skiing in Bohinj
