Lake Bohinj

The glorious setting and spectacular panoramas make it worth a trip up Vogel – during winter, when it's a popular ski resort, but also in its 'green season', when walks and photo ops abound. The cable car runs every 30 minutes or so from its base near Ukanc – the base station is at 569m, the top station at 1535m.
