A relatively easy mountain walk above Bohinjin the Julian Alps, to the summit of Vogel (1922m). We use the Vogel Cable Car to gain a bit of height!

Start/Finish – Vogel Ski Station car park

Distance – 10km/6.2miles

Height gain – approx 650m

Time – 3h40min

Grade – fairly strenuous. A high-level mountain walk on waymarked paths, involving a little easy scrambling. Vogel is liable to lightning strikes; avoid if storms are forecast (see our mountain weather advice).

Recommended map(s) – are the 1:50 000 Triglavski Narodni Park or the Julijske Alpe vzhodni del (eastern) maps, published by PZS.  There is also the 1:25 000 Bohinjsko jezero map, again by PZS.

Equipment – Walking boots, walking sticks. See our clothing and walking equipment page for more recommendations.

Refreshments on route – At the Upper Cable Car Station; none on route.
