Nestled in a valley between the Julian Alps, Lake Bohinj provides many opportunities for outdoor activities, such as hiking, cycling, camping, skiing, and parachuting. Surrounded by pristine alpine landscapes of lush woods and green meadows, Slovenia's largest glacial lake is 4.2 km (2.6 mi) long, 1 km (0.6 mi) wide, and 45 m (148 ft) deep. Take a boat trip or rent a canoe and explore the lake's waters and shores. Nearby attractions include a church, which can be seen from across the lake, and the Savica waterfall. Mountain slopes around the lake offer good skiing opportunities. By using our Bohinjsko Jezero travel planner, you can arrange your visit to Lake Bohinj and other attractions in Bohinjsko Jezero.
