Hiking activities in Bohinj
There are plenty of hiking options to choose from. A circular walk around the lake (12km) from Ribčev Laz should take between three and four hours. Or you could just do parts of the walk around the lake by following the hunters' trail in the forest above the south shore of the lake to the Hotel Zlatorog and taking the bus back, or walking along the more tranquil northern shore under the cliffs of Pršivec (1761m).
Much more strenuous is the hike up to Vogel (1922m) from the cable car's upper station. Take a map and compass, and don't set out if it looks stormy; Vogel is prone to lightning strikes. The whole trip should take about four hours. The 1:25,000 Bohinjsko Jezero…
An excellent hike is the two-hour one north from Stara Fužina through the Motnica Gorge to the Mostnica Falls, which rival Savica Waterfall after a heavy rain. The 1:25,000 Bohinjsko Jezero z Okolico (Lake Bohinj & Surrounds; around €7.30) map available at the tourist office lists a dozen excellent walks. Also useful is the 1:15,000 Bohinj (around €5) map with as many walks outlined.
