Lake Bohinj via Ferrata

Half-Day Tour, Lake Bohinj to Lake Bohinj

Join us on a secured climbing adventure up the near-vertical walls on the northern side of Lake Bohinj and enjoy pleasurable climbing ascross a sunlit wall mostly graded C with shorter sections graded D. Expect heavenly views of Lake Bohinj you haven’t seen before and lots of fun!

Itinerary

A barely visible track, which begins in Ukanc on the western side of Lake Bohinj, leads us first through a forest and then passes scenic but steep scree slopes to the wall named Voket. Throughout secured with a steel cable, the route is mostly graded C and as such calls for pleasurable climbing across a sunlit wall (also nice in colder but dry weather!). There are four shorter vertical sections graded D as well, which require extra skills, strength, and, most of all, mental readiness. It ascends 300 meters up over near-to-vertical walls on the northern side of Lake Bohinj opening to heavenly views of Lake Bohinj and the surrounding mountains. After reaching the top of the via ferrata, we descend down a long scree slope, which takes us all the way down to Lake Bohinj again. Cheers!
