Take a short break to Slovenia's Bohinj region. The area boasts the largest natural lake in Slovenia and is nestled in the breathtaking Julian Alps, making it the perfect destination for those looking for outdoor adventure.
Bohinj so oftens plays second fiddle to its more famous sister Bled and being slightly more under the radar and less commercially developed definitely adds to its appeal. The area is a walkers paradise with many well marked trails around the lake and into the surrounding mountains. Lake based activities are plentiful with kayaking, SUP and boat rides on offer.
This short break has been developed with the Hotel Bohinj and includes some lovely extras such as hiking tour with an experienced guide, Julian Alps card and delicious a la carte dinners, which helps to make this short holiday a truly memorable one.
*Please note the hotel is closed for renovation from 19th September to 15th December 2023

Slovenia is a small country so today could be the day to venture further afield, perhaps visiting the more famous lakeside town of Bled (40 minutes away) with its enchanting island and imposing hilltop castle- no visit here is complete without a taste of the infamous Bled cream cake! It is easy to reach by public bus or taxi. Alternatively, make use of the excellent spa and wellness facilities at the hotel.
