    Bohinj is the right destination for all lovers of outdoor activities, hikers, mountaineers, cyclists, and lovers or water or winter sports. The nature there is wild and unspoilt, and there are endless adventure opportunities. From the valley, experienced hikers can even climb our highest mountain, the 2864-metre-high Mt Triglav, and many nearby peaks, too. There’s also something for people who are into mountaineering, climbing, or via ferratas. You can spend an unforgettable day in Vogel, which you can reach by gondola. It’s lively up there in summer and winter, when you can go skiing on natural snow. If you prefer to stay in the valley, you can spend a wonderful day walking around the lake, along the River Sava Bohinjka, or cycling. In winter, enjoy cross-country skiing.
