Arriving in Ribčev Laz – Bohinj Lake

11:00 AM - Arriving in Ribčev Laz – Bohinj Lake

After biking along the Sava Bohinjka River for an hour, we arrived at the small village of Ribčev Laz, located next to the stunning Lake Bohinj. At the edge of the village, you will be treated to a breathtaking view of the lake. The lake has crystal clear green and blue water, where you can see fish swimming inside. Lake Bohinj has two other highlights: the Church of St. John the Baptist, which is a masterpiece of Carniolan church architecture, and the old stone bridge, which is a popular spot for taking photos. Another highlight is the Monument to Four Courageous Men, a memorial dedicated to the first ascent to Mount Triglav in 1778.

Stara Fužina – Mostnica gorge - Devil's bridge

12:30 PM - Stara Fužina – Mostnica gorge - Devil's bridge

As we continue our biking journey, we'll ride alongside the picturesque Mostnica stream until we reach the charming village of Stara Fužina. The Mostnica stream flows into the River Sava Bohinjka, creating breathtaking waterfalls and rapids along its course. One of the highlights of this route is the impressive Devil's Bridge, constructed in the 18th century, which spans the steep Mostnica gorge. However, the view from the bridge may not be suitable for everyone due to its vertiginous height. The bridge owes its name to a fascinating folk legend, which our guide will happily share with us.

Lake Bohinj is situated in the heart of the Triglav National Park, and it is considered to be one of the best-kept secrets of Europe as well as a must-see attraction in Slovenia. This lake is the largest natural lake in Slovenia, and it is renowned for its picturesque stone bridge and the Church of St. John the Baptist. We highly recommend taking a beautiful circular walk around Lake Bohinj to fully appreciate its stunning natural beauty.

The Monument to The Four Courageous Men is a memorial dedicated to the first ascent of Mount Triglav, which is the highest mountain in Slovenia standing at 2,864 meters. The ascent was made by a group of four local men, including a doctor, a hunter, and two miners, in 1778, which was considered a near-impossible feat at that time. The monument was erected in 1978 to honour their bravery on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the first ascent. It stands on a knoll near the Bohinj Lake

Church of St. John the Baptist also known as Cerkev Sv. Janeza Krstnika, is a stunning piece of Carniolan church architecture. The church is famous for its beautiful frescos and is considered a memorable medieval building. Although the church was officially built in 1742, there has been a dwelling place on the site since the 10th century. The church and an old stone bridge form a unique composition and perfectly blend in with the Julian Alps mountain range in the background. It is a very popular location for tourist photos.

Mostnica Gorge and Devil's Bridge - The Mostnica River is a stream located in the Alps, which has various interesting features such as gorges, waterfalls, and rapids. It flows from the Voje valley to the village of Stara Fužina. One notable attraction is the hollow rock which is known as the 'Little Elephant'. This rock was created when the water broke through a rock formation. Additionally, the Devil's Bridge is a challenging construction over the steep Mostnica gorge. It was built in the 18th century to transport iron ore and charcoal from the surrounding hills. The bridge got its name from a folk legend, which you can hear from our guide.

Village Studor is famous for its double hayracks located at the entrance of the village. The village also has a museum called 'The Oplen House', which is an old house with a black kitchen. In addition, there is a ranch in the village where you can find Icelandic horses. While the hayracks (known as kozolec in Slovene) are primarily built for practical purposes such as feeding animals, they are often designed and crafted artistically, making them a distinctive form of vernacular architecture that represents Slovenian identity.
