Very few spots in Europe can boast of a beauty so wild and so placid at the same time as the Triglav National Park. It is located at the foot of the highest mountain of Slovenia. The park is accessed by the well-known resort of Bled, via a road swinging between old barns until reaching Bohinj lake.
Few words can prepare ourselves for the overwhelming beauty of Bohinj, with a crystal clear lake surrounded by towering rocky mountains. In the various valleys that converge to the lake there are small rural villages where our accommodations are located, either in apartments, cottages or hotels.
Lake Bohinj is an ideal spot for a holiday in the countryside, just resting and taking long walks on foot, biking or by canoe on the lake, enjoying the local cuisine and visiting their mountain small old towns with museums and charming alpine churches. But Bohinj is also a paradise for active holidays with many hiking trails to access the peaks or altitude lakes and waterfalls. Other sports such as mountain biking or river activities (rafting, hydro etc.) are extremely popular in Bohinj.
But Bohinj is also an ideal base from which to tour the main attractions of Slovenia. It is a small country with a variety of landscapes in its compact territory. Taking Bohinj as base you can make day trips to visit the Adriatic coast, castles, caves, the medieval towns or Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia.
Following itinerary is only an example to illustrate all the sightseeing possibilities you have:
Day 1: Flight to Venice.
Check-in at your home airport 90 minutes before the designated departure time of your flight to Munich. On arrival pick up your rental car at the airport. You will use the car to transfer to Bohinj, a resort in Triglav National Park (around 3h driving time). The car will be at your disposal the whole week to tour the area. First night in Bohinj in Triglav National Park, at the foot of the highest peaks in the country and with some of the most beautiful lakes in Europe.
Day 2: The Great Route of the Julian Alps.
Today you can make the route across the entire park. Crossing the town of Kranjska Gora, you will go up to one of the most spectacular mountain passes in the Alps, the Vrisc Pass. Then go over the Soca Valley, with its beautiful emerald river. In Bovec you can take a cable car and in Kobarid, meet the remains of one of the major battles of I World War. The route is aroun 130 Km. long.
Day 3: Ljubljana, the capital.
After so much nature, we recommend a day to learn Ljubljana city, which is about 70 km from the National Park. It is the capital city of Slovenia known for the elegant architecture of Joze Pleznik, following the Viennese Art Nouveau style. In the afternoon you can stroll around the charming old town of the city. At the foot and at the foot castle, it is a very liverly part of the city with plazas, terraces for a drink and shops.
Day 4: The Adriatic coast.
Despite being quite far from the Alps, making a side trip to knowi the Slovenian Adriatic coast is worth the effort. And not just for the scenery or the beaches, but because of its cities, with an architecture full of charm, very similar to Venice. The return route from Bohinj is about 360 km and will reveal cities steeped in history as such Koper, Piran and Izola with its salines.
Day 5: Triglav National Park.
You have to spend at least one day to be familiar with the environment of the National Park where you are staying. The lakes of Bled and Bohinj, with small churches, or the breathtaking views from Vogel cable car are unforgettable. The side valleys have old barns and charming villages. There are also many possibilities for hiking and biking that allow you to know the altitude lakes or waterfalls.
Day 6: Caves and castles.
Slovenia is a country famous for its caves. The most popular, visited with a tourist train are the Postojna caves, close to the spectacular castle Predjama. But perhaps the most impressive caves are those in Skocjan, a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, with colossal dimensions. Alla in all you will drive ca. 200 Km.
Day 7: Middle-age cities.
Between Ljubljana and the Julian Alps, close to the National Park, there are small medieval towns full of charm. They can be covered in single-day trip because they are all very close to each other. The route includes Radovljica, Kranj, Kamnik and Skofja Loka. Many of them still have the original walls and charming streets. It is a trip to the medieval boroughs of Central Europe. The route is about 130 Km in total.
