WE RECOMMEND

Every season has its own patterns, every path has its own explorers, and every corner of nature appeals to different senses. Finding the right mix of possibilities and the perfect balance between enjoying the present moment and personal growth, is an art that takes a lifetime to learn. Let us help you with some basic tips in the Bohinj area.

What time of year is best?

The enchanting silence of a winter idyll or the playful liveliness of a summer holiday? The colourful exuberance of spring or the tranquil glow of autumn landscapes? Bohinj is exceptional in every season. It’s most busy in the heat of summer and the peak of the ski season, but even then, there are always quiet corners if you know where to look.

What about the weather? Here we say there is no such thing as bad weather, only inadequate equipment. With a little planning, you can make the most of every moment of the year for unforgettable experiences. But always act responsibly and adapt your destination to the current weather conditions.

Activities for families

Spending quality time with the family are the best memories that children carry into adulthood. “I can’t make it” and “is it far still” can easily be turned into “oh wow” and “when are we going again” if you spice up the “boring” walkabouts with good stories, interesting information and creative ideas.

We recommend the guided experiences of the Bohinjsko/From Bohinj brand and the Zlatorog Fairytale Trail. And to make the most of your holiday budget, take advantage of the Julian Alps Bohinj Card.

Feel the peace and tranquillity

The cure for the main challenges of the modern world (stress, unhealthy lifestyles, lack of time and the enormous amount of information at every turn) is quite simple: start by treating yourself to peace and quiet. Although it is not easy to incorporate them into everyday life, they can be our goal on holidays.

Take your mind off things, breathe deeply with your diaphragm, ground yourself by barefoot walking, close your eyes and listen to the natural pulse of your surroundings and allow yourself to mindfully enjoy the present moment. More and more research confirms how crucial it is to get back in touch with nature.
