HIKING IN BOHINJ
Bohinj is the ideal starting point for venturing into the world below Triglav, which is why Triglav was first conquered by the Bohinj people. The Bohinj mountains, full of life in summer, are densely packed with trails. From the lowlands to the highest peaks, Bohinj is an inexhaustible source of new experiences for hikers. There is more than 300 km of marked hiking trails in Bohinj. You can also use the OUTDOOR ACTIVE app to plan your hikes and walks.
The Glacier Trail is a geomorphological trail that follows the remnants of the former glacier, through glacial moraines and between glacial boulders.
A short and easy walk takes you to Vodnikov razglednik Viewpoint that offers a wonderful views of the Lower and Upper Bohinj Valleys, the lake basin and the surrounding mountains.

Always put safety first
For many of the trails in Bohinj, a good mood and a suitable above-the-ankle hiking boots are enough, but some of the trails can be much more challenging. Of course, not everyone needs to go to Triglav, as a walk by the lake can be a real experience of colour and light, beautiful views and idyllic spots. Respect yourself and your limitations, as well as nature and its capricious ability to turn from an idyllic oasis into a dangerous experience in the blink of an eye. On the Slovenian Mountaineering Association’s website, you can find detailed advice on how to stay safe in the mountains in different situations and seasons.
