The heart of Bohinj is the lake, being the largest permanent natural lake in Slovenia. The best way to get to know it is simply to walk around it.

The starting point is Ribčev Laz, or the church of St John (Sveti Janez) on the eastern edge of the lake. The trail described here leads anticlockwise, although clockwise is of course also fine.

The path begins heading north, and then skirts the wide Fužinarski Zaliv bay on the eastern side of the lake. At the end of the bay the trail heads along the north shore of the lake. This side is sunny and generally more appealing and quieter.

The trail first follows a wide cart track, then a forest trail, all the time just a few metres from the shoreline, and leads to the western end of the lake and the Ukanc meadows.

The route runs across the meadows, continuing around the lake to another cart track and a road leading to the Hotel Zlatorog. A road runs from here up to the crossroads under Mt Vogel, and then a footpath just below the road hugs the southern, shaded shore of the lake, leading past the church of the Holy Spirit and back to Ribčev Laz.

The walk around the lake can easily be extended with a rewarding detour to the Savica waterfall or the Mostnica river, either of which can also be made into separate outings.
