Naši ukrepi, s katerimi želim zmanjšati negativne vplive turizma na okolje ter gostom in domačinom izboljšati kakovost življenja in izkušenj.
We are aware of the fragile balance between nature and man and respect the heritage of our ancestors. To preserve the environment and provide integrated service at the same time, we are encouraging the use of sustainable mobility and travelling solutions.
Bohinj and the Triglav National Park are visited by more tourists every year. This further increases the pressure on the sensitive alpine environment. With the desire to relieve the pressure on the lake bowl, we are introducing measures to encourage visitors to use public transport. Parking is only allowed on designated car parks, the most favourable parking is in Bohinjska Bistrica.
There are various transport options available to you:
Waste sorting in Bohinj is standard practice and we ask you to sort waste, too. We have placed waste sorting bins around the lake as is visible on the map. There are no waste bins in the natural environment, therefore waste must be disposed of at municipal waste areas.
We have established an entry-exit point system along the lake and the Sava Bohinjka river and its tributaries, including all the necessary infrastructure such as changing facilities, benches, air pumps for stand-up-paddle boards (SUP) and so on. Your contribution to the use of an entry-exit point is also a contribution to safe and properly regulated activity. Above all, this is also a contribution to the conservation of our unspoilt nature as preserved by our ancestors, which we are obliged to protect and preserve for future generations.
Caravans and campsites
Experience clear nights full of stars on the benches of mountain huts, shelters and bivouacs. This is one of the rules of good manners in the Triglav National Park – two-thirds of its area belongs to the municipality of Bohinj. Camping and staying in bivouacs is permitted only in designated areas.
Tent camping is permitted only in official campsites. The Triglav National Park law also prohibits the parking of motor vehicles, holiday trailers or caravans outside of the designated areas.
And the law and order decree prohibit overnight stays in the area of the municipality of Bohinj in hay barns, hay racks, parks, bus and train stations, areas of apartment buildings not designed for overnight stays, at the market and other inappropriate places.
But in Bohinj, there are two campsites providing amazing scenery for your morning views from your trailer or your tent’s wing with all you need for your comfort. One is located in Ukanc, just a stone’s throw from Lake Bohinj and the other in Bohinjska Bistrica near the Sava Bohinjka river. Moreover, two official car parks for caravans are provided: at
Senožeta in Srednja vas and at the train station in Bohinjska Bistrica.

Whilst many visitors to Slovenia, particularly those who visit to hike in the Julian Alps, are familiar with areas such as the ever-popular 7 Triglav Lakes Valley, and Slovenia’s highest mountain, Triglav, another area that is well worth a visit is the outstandingly beautiful Pokljuka Plateau, which during summer you can visit for FREE courtesy of the Hop-On Hop-Off Bohinj to Pokljuka bus.
Since Pokljuka is also a popular destination for cyclists – road cyclists enjoy the challenge of the long road that winds its way up to the plateau from either Bled or Bohinj, whilst mountain bike enthusiasts enjoy the gravel roads that criss-cross the plateau, the buses are also equipped with bike brackets and each bus can accommodate up to six bikes.
En-route to the pasture you reach an ‘energy field‘, which attracts people from far and wide who come to sit on the various energy points that are believed to be beneficial for various ailments.
