Winter in Bohinj

Bohinj is always beautiful. Covered with snow or not, in all kinds of weather, you can make amazing memories here.

The proverbially long and cold winters in Bohinj were sometimes accompanied by the saying, that winter in Bohinj lasts for 13 months. But times have changed. Now we are extremely happy if winter in the valley starts in December and ends in April. This allows us to make the most of the wide range of winter activities the area has to offer. Higher up in the mountains, of course, it’s different. In any case, winter brings its specific challenges, which need to be carefully considered.
