Tour description

Start your trekking across Seven Lakes Valley in a village Stara Fužina (600 m), located in the immediate vicinity of Bohinj Lake. Asphalt road will soon change to a forest trail.

Vogar (1054 m). (1h)

A trail will get steeper after a while as it will turn towards the saddle Štapce (1851 m). But it is definitely worth it.
