The richness of hilly meadows, a guided botanical excursion to Vogar
The event is fully booked!
Description of the route
North of Lake Bohinj rises a steep ridge that every visitor in Bohinj will quickly spot Vogar, the easternmost peak. It is a popular excursion point thanks to its mountain lodge and beautiful views, and is also popular with paragliders, who jump from it towards the meadows by the lake.
A steep marked trail leads to Vogar from Stara Fužina, but we prefer to take the much more pleasant narrow unmarked trail over Planica. Here you can find Auricula (Primula auricula), Sternberg’s carnation (Dianthus sternbergii). At the lookout point at the monument, on the sloping side, there is a warm-loving forest with black hornbeam (Ostrya carpinifolia), holly (Amelanchier ovalis), common holly (Sorbus aria), beamed cochineal (Genista radiata) and Carniola lily (Lilium carniolicum).
On Mt. Vogar, the world flattens out into a plateau, where we have typical hilly meadows formed by glacial-crustal action. The vegetation is typical of dry alpine meadows: in spring you can find spring mallow (Gentiana verna), Clusius’s sage (Gentiana clusii),Trollius europaesus (Trollius europaesus),tall prickly pear (Primula elatior), and later the Crown Lily (Lilium carniolicum), the Turkish lily (Lilium martagon), carnations (Dianthus sp.), pink-red umbellifer (Heracleum austriacum), Cucurbits or orchids (Orchidaceae), Anthyllis vulneraria (Anthyllis vulneraria) and Anthyllis vulneraria (Anthyllis vulneraria).
