Vogel ski resort and the Bohinj region are spectacular – featuring Slovenia’s highest peaks and biggest lake, with acres of National Parkland. Here you’ll find a larger collection of pistes than most of the nation’s resorts, which are all covered by one ski pass if you fancy a Slovenian ski safari.

Bohinj Resort

By all means visit Bled, where the lake with its island and medieval castle make for a spectacular destination. But don’t knock beautiful Bohinj, which has more than enough claims to make it one of the nation’s finest destinations.

The area covers three spectacular valleys, where you’ll find the biggest lake and highest mountain in Slovenia. Two thirds of the Bohinj area belong to the Triglav National Park.

There’s also the matter of Vogel, the local ski resort above Lake Bohinj with a ski area ten times the size of Bled’s - 22km of pistes in glorious national parkland.

Skiing picked up in these parts between the World Wars – a place called Skalaški dom on the outskirts of Vogel was used as a bed base for skiers and mountaineers, before it was demolished in the war. Proper cable cars and guesthouses started appearing in the sixties, as the resort grew into one of Slovenia’s greatest places to ski.

The Bohinj area is made up of a number of small villages. Most hotels are based near the lake, and others can be found in the village of Bohinjska Bistrica with a ski bus to transport you to the ski lifts.

Skiing/BoardingSkiing in Bohinj

For Vogel’s littlest visitors, the children’s park has magic carpet lifts, a toboggan run for more snowy fun (and a nearby terrace at Viharnik Inn for parents to watch them progress from).

Blue run skiers can take the Stirisedeznica chair to the Orlove glave or Kriz runs, which wiggle down to the mid station.

The Sija – Zadnji Vogel slope is a deliciously long red run from Postaja Sija at 1800m, down to the gondola station.

The Suha and Rodica mountains are popular with ski tourers – you can set off from the Kratki plaz drag or Zadnji Vogel chair. Cross country skiers have over 60km of trails.

Vogel snow park is one of the best in Slovenia – 2ha in size and containing all manner of modules.

With the Slovenian Alps Ski Pass, you’ve access to Vogel as well as a number of other resorts, including Bled, Kranjska Gora, Cerkno and 3ländereck.

Bohinj Apres Ski

When it calls for an après ski drink or three, Cuk bar is a favourite for music and dancing into the early hours. There’s also Kavka bar, where the sun terrace looks over the snow park. In the food department, Viharnik is a panoramic restaurant at the top of the cable car looking over Triglav and the Bohinj basin. Grab one of the outdoor tables when the sun’s out and try some of the local cuisine on offer. Chalet Merjasec is famed for its boar goulash, while Gostilna Erlah does a good mix of European dishes with good veggie options. For good old fashioned pizza, try Center Pizzerija.

Besides skiing and snowboarding, activities include tandem paragliding and sledding.

Best time to visit & ski Bohinj

The area usually gets a healthy dose of natural snow throughout the season, and hasn’t had to invest as heavily in snow cannons as other Slovenian resorts. This makes it a good choice if you’re planning to visit towards the beginning or end of the ski season – sometimes the area is skiable as early as November, and continues to be so into May. The positioning of the area has something to do with it, featuring the first mountains above the Adriatic.

Bohinj Ratings & Customer Feedback
Average Rating 3 out of 5
The town is small and quiet, we found that it basically closes down at night. There’s a big spa and swimming pool you can go visit. The ski area is good for beginners, my girlfriend learnt to ski here. I was happy too as an intermediate, but it’s not a very big place. + more
