I'm absolutely blown away by this lake and will 100% be returning to this area for more exploring and perhaps to hire a cabin up in the mountains.

We stayed at Camp Danica . We actually wanted to stay at another site on the lake but it’s not possible to book there and it’s always full. Camp Danica was only 5 minuted drive from the lake so although it wasn’t our first choice it was fine.

The site was very pleasant if a bit overcrowded. The bathroom facilities were clean but a little cramped. We enjoyed the food and a few beers from the on site restaurant.

The site is right on the Sava river so it’s a nice spot for paddling and you can do guided kayaking from the site too which looked really fun. If we’d stayed longer we’d definitely have had a go at this.

Lake Bohinj is set amongst the mountains in Slovenia’s Triglav National Park and is a stunning spot.

We swam and paddle boarded across the lake and also got our snorkels out. There’s not much to see snorkelling but the water is so clear you can see right to the bottom in many places.

There’s some excellent hikes arena the lake and mountains. One beautiful hike is the Mostnica Gorge Hike which starts in a convenient car park and goes up to the Mostnica waterfall the source of the Mostnica river. It’s a lovely hike through woods along the Mostnica river then out across the open fields of the valley surrounded by mountains then another short walk through the woods again until you reach the waterfall.

A short way into the walk you come across a small hut where you pay a small fee and someone is there to give you a map and instructions on how to get up to the waterfall. There is also a small picturesque restaurant near the waterfall where you can refuel before heading back down.

The climate at lake Bohinj while we were there was perfect. Mild nights warm sunny days, but not too hot.

Add this lake to your SUP bucket list now. And even if you don’t stand up paddle board visit this lake, it’s a perfect place for an active holiday in a beautiful location.
