Bohinj – Heaven for ski touring

Avtor: Martin Šolar

Ski touring, the discovering of the so-called obscure mountain world on skis, is growing in terms of popularity and acceptance. Winter in the mountains, ski touring equipment and one’s determination are all interconnected to an endless circle of experiences offered by Bohinj in the winter time. In the winter months, when you get a view of the snow capped mountains above Bohinj, you get the chance to experience the mountainous terrain in a completely different manner.

The Julian Alps become a vast terrain packed with ski touring trails and the conditions here are simply the best. Bohinj is believed to be one of the cradles of ski touring in Slovenia and has a distinct advantage against other Alpine areas, due to its natural conditions. The ski touring skiing season both in Bohinj and Julian Alps is fairly long, as it starts in December and finishes in April or in the following months. Ski touring is best during peak season in March and April when the snow is compact, lit by the sun and there is no avalanche danger. The mountain range vistas start off with the foothills of Mt Črna Prst, Mt Rodica and Mt Vogel – the so-called Bohinj-Tolmin mountains. But one has to be careful nevertheless, and it is best to start at Vogel, a dedicated ski slope with ski lifts operating for more than 50 years, offering a great starting point for ski touring.

Bohinj’s Mt Komna probably offers the most picturesque and diverse ski touring area in the Julian Alps. This high plateau with an altitude of around 1,500 meters is a great starting point for touring in all directions. One can choose to take the easy and short ski touring trails, (Kal, Lanževica), short and difficult ones (Podrta Gora, Mahavšček), or the remote ones, such as Krn and Kanjavec.

Mt Komna has a mountain cottage open for public year round where one can get a proper night stay and suitable care. The pastures of Fužina north above Lake Bohinj provide areas of mountain pastures, quiet and secret forests which turn out to be a genuine piece of heaven for ski touring. The valley behind Kopica with Zelnarica, Vogel, Debeli Vrh and Ograda. Aspiring possibilities for ski touring, amongst which Kanjevec takes the number one spot – the longest ski touring trail around here offering 15 km of trails with 2000 meters difference in altitude. One can ski all the way to Stara Fužina if conditions are suitable.

The mountain range around Bohinj ends with peaks above the Pokljuka plateau. One can get to the plateau fairly easily (there is also public transport available) and the place itself offers numerous ski touring trails amongst which the steep Mt Viševnik and the wonderful snow pyramid Mt Veliki Draški Vrh are the most popular. There are really plenty of opportunities for ski touring in the mountains of Bohinj, and the more advanced and fit touring skiers can opt for the so-called Triglav Ski Touring Traverse – nearly all of it stretches at the mountain areas of Bohinj. The traverse starts off at Mt Vogel via Mt Komna to the Valley of the Triglav Lakes, then continues its route via Mt Hribarice all the way to Velo Polje pasture beneath Mt Triglav and only at the last part when going of from Kredarica to the Krma Valley leaves the area of mountains of Bohinj. These difficult 3-4 days ski touring expedition offers accommodations at mountain cottages open year round at Mt Vogel, Mt Komna, and Kredarica. In between, one can rest in the winter rooms or bivouac shelters in the Valley of the Triglav Lakes and at Velo Polje pasture.

Golden Rules of Cycling

1. A bike and body in perfect condition – always be safe when cycling

Use only a technically flawless bicycle and appropriate safety gear (clothes, shoes, gloves and helmet, and appropriate accessories for longer rides). Be realistic regarding your own capabilities, and always make sure you remain focused while cycling. Do not go cycling while under the influence of intoxicating substances.

2. Do not race – slow and steady wins the race

Heed and respect all speed limits and recommendations for cyclists.  If you feel the need for speed, participate in mountain biking competitions, or use mountain biking routes. Slow down before you reach blind corners. Do not block your tyres when braking, as that leaves tracks and reduces your braking efficiency.

3. Use only open trails – not every way is the right way

Heed and respect traffic signs. Cycling through protected areas (e.g. marshes, habitats of protected plants), on meadows, and on skiing slopes is strictly prohibited! Respect private property.

4. Do not leave permanent tracks – take your trash with you

Watch the ground in front of you. Wet and muddy trails are more sensitive than dry ones. Stay on existing trails and do not make new ones. Also, do not cut sharp corners. Take faulty tubes and other trash back to the valley. Use biodegradable oils and lubricants.  Be a mountain biker and an environmentalist sportsman at the same time.  The fragile natural balance is easy to destroy and much harder to restore.

5. Do not scare wildlife or domestic animals

Avoid making unnecessary noise. A sudden encounter, movement, or loud sound can easily startle animals. Give the animals enough time and space so they can get used to you. When you pass horse riders, be very careful and respect their instructions (if you are not sure about something, ask them). Intentional startling of cattle and wildlife is a serious offence.

6. Respect others and they will respect you

Do everything in your power to let other people on the trail know you are there – A friendly greeting or a bell are good methods. When you ride through corners, take into account that other people may be using the same trail. Try to foresee potential encounters. Cyclists must respect and give way to all other users of the trail, unless it is explicitely marked as a trail for cycling. Cyclists going downhill must give way to those going uphill, unless the trail is clearly marked as one-way, i.e. only downhill. Try to make every encounter safe and decent.

7. You use all trails at your own risk

Take the responsibility for your life into your own hands. Respect the Golden Rules of Cycling in Nature.


  • If there is no trail specifically for cycling, ride at the right side of the trail in the direction you are going, as close to the edge of the trail as possible (not more than one metre away).
  • When in groups, cyclists must ride single file. If the trail is wide enough, riding double file is only allowed in exceptional circumstances.
  • The mandatory bicycle equipment consists of a bell, front light to light the road and rear red light, rear retroreflector, yellow retroreflectors in the pedals, side retroreflectors, and front and rear brakes in perfect condition. At night and in poor visibility, we also recommend use of various retroreflectors that can be pinned on your clothes.
  • Helmet: A cyclist of less than 14 years and a child who is riding as a passenger must wear a helmet while riding. Even though it is not obligatory, we recommend that adult cyclists also wear helmets.
