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.

Lake Bohinj Reviews
Lago con menos turismo que el de Bled. Mas cerca de las montañas. Perfecto para excursiones. En la zona visitamos tambien una queseria en el pueblo. Varios restaurantes more »Lake with less tourism than Bled. Closer to the mountains. Perfect for excursions. In the area we also visited a cheese factory in the village. Several restaurants
This lake is a beautiful and peaceful place to visit, obviously best in good weather, where a round lake walk hire of a boat would complete a day after a visit to the historic local church of St John ... more »
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.
