A guided botanical excursion with flower lunch or dinner

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.


The International Wild Flower Festival programme is very diverse and offers various events, workshops, cultural events, lectures, exhibitions and other activities; however, the heart of the festival are short and long walks, where we can really feel the richness of flora in Bohinj. Although there are many reasons to visit the festival, one of the main ones is the diversity of flowers that still grow in the Alps.

There are 84 different types of wild orchids growing in Slovenia, and 42 of them grow in the area of the Julian Alps, i.e. also in Bohinj. Our flora is therefore extensive.


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.


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.
