The Bohinj valleys sits at the foot of the surrounding Julian Alps. As a result, mountain climbing is a prime attraction during the summer and autumn.
Outside of Mt Triglav, the area boasts plenty of other incredible climbs as well. Among them is Prisank (2,547 meters), which is a great intermediate-level peak for people interested in climbing pristine limestone. Views from the top are great too and on the way down climbers have the option of hiking or heading down on a via ferrata.
Other good peaks for intermediate climbers include Vršaki, Vernar and Mali Draški vrh. For novice mountaineers, heading up Plaski Vogel, Veliko Špičje and Mišeljski konec are great ways to get some experience while enjoying the area’s incredible beauty.
The summer months of June and July offer pleasant climbing weather, with more unpredictable weather from November to May. Storms can inhibit ascents in the winter months and present additional hazards and obstacles to the trek.
Any trip to Bohinj will begin with a flight into the international airport outside of Ljubljana (LJU). From here, it is easy to rent a car and make the one hour drive or take a bus into the valley.
