  • Stunning lakes views and many outdoor activities (kayaking, paddle boarding, paragliding). Much less busy than Lake Bled and waters much calmer. Nice, tranquil place for some paddling or swimming and surrounded by beautiful mountains. You can walk around it, but I recommend the path starting from a small church since the other side you are near the road.
  • My husband and I spent our lovely honeymoon in lake Bohinj! There is loads to do around the lake: biking, kayaking, hiking, paragliding, you name it! We can only recommend! Also, it's much quieter and more tranquil than the busy lake Bled.
