Bohinj, Slovenia


The alpine valley of Bohinj is located in the stunning Triglav National Park, Gorenjska: the same region as Kranjska Gora, but thats where the similarity ends. Whereas Kranjska Gora caters for a more elite crowd, luxury and upmarket facilities being taken for granted; Bohinj and its surroundings are truly unspoiled and the feeling of mass tourism is nowhere to be found.
People here are the definition of amiable, attentive and courteous. This is where you come if you want to be treated as a guest, not as a client. Everyone here knows each other and there’s a genuine sense of camaraderie. You’ll see them recommending each others’ restaurants and hotels, instead of being overly competitive and trying to hoard all the tourists. Not once from all the places we visited did we encounter bad service, or good service that didn’t seem genuine. Just don’t expect a lot of frills. Nightlife is practically non-existent and overly luxurious hotels are hard to find. Come here to ski at one of the numerous resorts in the vicinty, with your family for an active holiday or with your partner to enjoy the beauty of nature. Highly recommended.
Bohinj is an ideal starting point for day trips, for walks on the trails that run throughout the valley, and for mountaineering and climbing tours and offers ideal options and opportunities for rest and relaxation in all seasons. In winter the valley becomes a winter sports center, while during the summer the most beautiful pearl of the valley, Lake Bohinj, invites bathers, and with the Sava Bohinjka River, kayakers and fishermen as well.
