Lake Bohinj is clearly the main attraction in the area and rightly so. It has a powerful but peaceful presence that you feel on an almost instinctive level from the moment you first set eyes upon it. I found I could spend long periods of time standing on the stone bridge in Ribcev Laz just staring accross the lake at the mountains which surround it.
There are some great opportunities for gentle(ish) walking around the lake. The Southern Shore has the only road from Ribcev Laz to Ukanc which makes it more accessible but slightly less appealing in my opinion. The Northern Shore is more remote, a little more challenging and a lot more rewarding.
There are some lovely walks to be had in the Upper Valley to the North East of the lake amongst the villages of Stara Fuzina, Studor and Strednja Vas. The presence of Slovenia's unique 'double hayracks' gives a very rustic feel to a day out here. There are also some mildly interesting small museums in the villages and some pleasant local cafes/taverns to pause for a while.
