Mostnica is an Alpine river with gorges and waterfalls, which show the magnificent nature in all its glory all through the Voje valley all the way to Stara Fužina village. Explore the wonderful world that is available at the tip of your fingers and enjoy in a walk through the scenting forest accompanied by the singing of birds and the murmur of this Alpine river.
You can start your exploration in Stara Fužina (all routes are marked):
Not far from the bridge is a trail-head that leads through a forest, where you can view the picturesque gorge. The gorge was made by the Mostnica river and in some places, it is very narrow. We can observe interesting creatures of nature along the trail, i.e. waterfalls, pools etc. A hollow rock which got the name “Little Elephant” is especially interesting, since it emerged when the water broke through a rock.
From the Koča na Vojah alpine hut you can continue through the picturesque valley of Voje to 21 m high Voje waterfall (also called the Šum waterfall or Mostnica waterfall). After visiting the waterfall we recommend you to stop at Voje Waterfall Alpine Hut, where you will be able to enjoy local food and drinks.
The tour to the end of the Voje valley takes about two and a half hours in one direction. The trail is well marked and is easy to moderate. The most difficult parts of the trail are two five-minute ascents (the first from the Mostnica Gorge to the Voje Hut and the second one to the Mostnica waterfall at the end of the valley).
In order to fully enjoy in this experience, we recommend you to hire a guide who will describe and show all the natural features along the trail, present you the life in Voje valley and also other interesting historical facts that relate to the explored area
There are some smaller waterfalls between the source of the mountain stream Mostnica and the Mostnica George, and there is also a 15-metre-long sliding waterfall flowing over a mossy terrain. A hundred metres down the source are the three Mostnica waterfalls: the first one with a height of 5 metres is followed by the 20-metre-high Voje waterfall called also Mostnica waterfall, and this one is followed by the last, another 5-metre-high waterfall called Konjski rep. The water from all three waterfalls carved deep pools.
On its way through the Voje valley, the stream slows down only to gain its force again on a steep slope between Voje and Stara Fužina, and then continues through picturesque Mostnica Gorge carved throughout the centuries into the stone river-bed by the water and sand.
On the outskirts of Stara Fužina, Mostnica is joined by the Ribnica stream, and after one kilometre of common path they jointly flow into the Sava Bohinjka river. This part of Mostnica represents the 3rd fishing district of the Bohinj Fishing Society. Only 5 fishermen a day are allowed to fly-fish there.
Apart from Ribnica, Mostnica has another three affluents (each with its own waterfall): the Kropa, Suha and Snedčica streams.

MOTOR is an acronym for “Mobile Tourist Incubator”. The project aims to improve tourist services and the attractions of less developed areas such as nature protected areas, rural areas and small city centres, and to design new cross-border tourist packages and educate local tourist services providers. The areas, included in the project, stretch from Ravenna to the Gorenjska region, and in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region the project encompasses the Julian Prealps Nature Park.
The project is co-financed under the Cross-Border Cooperation Programme Slovenia-Italy 2007-2013 by the European Regional Development Fund and national funds. / Projekt soﬁnanciran v okviru Programa čezmejnega sodelovanja Slovenija–Italija 2007–2013 iz sredstev Evropskega sklada za regionalni razvoj in nacionalnih sredstev. / Il progetto è coﬁnanziato nell’ambito del Programma per la Cooperazione Transfrontaliera Italia- Slovenia 2007-2013, dal Fondo europeo di sviluppo regionale e dai fondi nazionali.
