At the heart of the Julian Alps lies Bohinj
, a glacial valley known for Lake Bohinj, the unspoilt Alpine landscape and a rich cultural heritage. At the same time, the valley is one of the most prominent attractions of Triglav National Park.
As there is not enough space for wide roads between the mountains and the lake, this Alpine jewel
is best explored by bicycle. On gravel roads you will avoid motorised traffic, and you won’t be in
anyone’s way in narrow village streets. Bohinj is a perfect spot for a Sunday cycling trip with your
family, as well as for advanced mountain bikers and road cyclists. It is simply too beautiful to be
explored by car, so hop on your bicycle and explore the natural splendours and local heritage of
this Alpine valley.Cycling tours
To the mountain biker’s delight, Lake Bohinj
is surrounded by mountains with numerous mountain
roads and trails. Road cyclists will also be well catered for in this area where only the strongest
riders run out of routes to travel. Apart from roads and trails, there are also many waymarked
cycleways. The Klodič Cycling Path runs along the left bank of the Sava Bohinjka to Bohinjska Bistrica
, along the foot of Rudnica to Lake Bohinj, and in Stara Fužina
curves into the Upper Bohinj Valley and continues to Srednja Vas. The 11 km cycle path is suitable for families and advanced cyclists, who normally incorporate this trail into longer cycling expeditions. You can visit the stunning waterfall at the source of the Bistrica as well as the Mostnica, Grmečica and Peračica falls. You can also ride most of the way to the famous Savica waterfall and towards the Ribnica falls. Cycling trips across the slopes of the southern Bohinj mountains afford beautiful views of the valley and the lake, Bohinjska Bistrica and the Triglav mountain range
. The panoramic vantage points will make it easy for you to decide where to go next.Cycling packagesThe Bohinj package
