Slovenia measures a good 20.000 square kilometres in size and has around 10.000 kilometres of marked hiking trails.
The Bohinj mountains have been inviting nature lovers for centuries. They form a majestic wreath of mountains, from the south chain of the lower Bohinj mountains, over the western chain that circles Komna and The Valley of the Triglav Lakes, to the mountain patriarch that is Triglav in the north and onwards towards the east, where they dip down into the Pokljuka forests.
This extraordinary basin in the heart of the Julian Alps and at the same time, in the centre of The Triglav National Park, constantly surprises with its diversity. You can experience all of the different altitude levels from the surface of lakes at an altitude of 540 meters, to the highest Slovenian summit Triglav, measuring at 2864 meters. Hiking in Bohinj is interesting and beautiful in all seasons, even in winter, for there are 17 walking and other hiking trails, as well as cross country skiing and snow shoe trails
Hiking was one of the first reasons why tourists started visiting Bohinj. The first visitors took walks along the lake and admired the beauty of the Bohinj’s glacial valleys. Bohinj also notes the first successful climb on Triglav in 1778. That year, four brave men conquered Triglav, which is now a symbol of Slovenians.
Hiking Days are planned from the 12th of September to the 12th of October 2014. [Programme]
