In spring, when the first primroses blossom and meadows and forests are in full bloom, there are more than 1000 different types of flowers that turn Bohinj into a large natural botanical garden. A garden that grows and changes every day. A garden that we do not water, dig through, nor weed … we just let it grow its own way. This garden is the core of the International Wild Flower Festival. Guided botanical excursions take us to areas of rocks, meadows and forests, where we can see different flowers.
Visit local inns by bicycle or during your hikes and walks around Bohinj – explore how the flowers can be aromatically intertwined with traditional tastes. You will be surprised by the creativity of local chefs. During the festival, you can order flower menus at a single price of EUR 17.00.

We are the observers of nature, but the walks to the flower beds unintentionally remind us of what is to come. What we pick in the garden, we then prepare in our kitchen and eat with great satisfaction. Various flowers will be transformed by our chefs into exquisite culinary delights in different inns awarded the Bohinjsko/From Bohinj certificate.
The cuisine in Bohinj and its local ingredients are a must for a genuine experience of Bohinj. Visit the inns that have the Bohinjsko/from Bohinj certificate and taste traditional food served in a contemporary way that will warm your heart. The bold and extraordinary tastes will completely enrapture you.
You cannot imagine a better end to beautiful hikes and walks.
Various day excursions guided by experts will take all wildflower admirers to the hidden corners of autochthonous wildflowers. While the excursions might be intended only for visitors, we believe that also we, the local people, who are used to the flowery background, are amazed every time we see this beauty of nature and admire it.
During the festival, visitors can choose among short, long and difficult hikes to the hidden habitats of flowers which have disappeared from meadows elsewhere in the world. The guided hikes end with lunch or dinner at local inns offering flower menus. Let your step be light and careful because our trails are all overgrown with flowers.
