Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Bovec: Kranjska Gora (Zelenci Nature Reserve, Lake Jasna, &more), Planica Valley (in Rateče) and Tolmin (Tolmin Castle on Kozlov Rob & Tolmin Gorge). The adventure continues: explore the activities along Soča Valley, trek along Krampež Waterfall, admire the sheer force of Kozjak Waterfall, and take a memorable drive along Mangart Saddle.

The mirror-like waters of the largest glacial lake in Slovenia make Bohinjsko Jezero one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country.
Kick off your visit on the 1st (Sat): contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Bohinj, tour the pleasant surroundings at Vogel, take in the dramatic scenery at Savica Waterfall, then find something for the whole family at Golden Horn Fairyland, and finally explore the different monuments and memorials at Ukanc Military Cemetery. On the next day, fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour, then pause for some serene contemplation at Church of St John the Baptist, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Natural Bathing Place Lajšt.
