BOATING REGULATIONS

Entry-exit points, moorings and other regulations that apply to all types of watercraft.

WHAT ARE BOATING REGULATION IN BOHINJ?

The regulations apply to all types of watercraft (including stand up paddleboards – SUP). Other sports watercraft, including kites, surfboards, hydrospeed, inflatable boats up to 2m long and similar equipment, do not need a permit, and are not obliged to use the designated entry and exit points.

Navigation in the Lake Bohinj bathing area, which stretches 100 m from the shore, is not permitted, except for navigation to/from the entry/exit points or moorings.

All activities in, on and at the lake are carried out at your own risk. We recommend that you use the support of experienced and qualified local guides. See boating regulation in bohinj (pdf).

Why new boating regulations?

Lake Bohinj and the Sava Bohinjka river and its tributaries represent a unique water system, so the Republic of Slovenia has decided to declare Lake Bohinj a natural asset of national importance; the Triglav National Park Act thus stipulates the strictest protective measures for the lake, since its shore is located in both the first and second areas of protection.

A similar level of protection applies to the Sava Bohinjka and most of its tributaries.

We care for you and the nature

These laws and regulations have a purpose – to preserve this unspoilt water system for future generations. For this reason we have initiated a managed preservation system with the aim of enabling everyone who wants to actively use this water system in the heart of the national park to be able to do so in a regulated and safe way, as well as causing minimum stress to the environment.

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 for 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.

We wish you many pleasurable activities on our waters!
