Hostel Pod Voglom with annex Rodica is situated at one of the most beautiful locations in Slovenia - right next to the Bohinj lake in the Triglav National park and is ideal for the active holiday and the outdoor fans.

Travellers can relax at the hostel garden, swim in the lake, borrow some books or social games, watch TV, play darts, table football, billiards, table tennis and volleyeball, available free all the time. There is a bar and a restaurant in the hostel where guests can exchange their travelling experience and use the free internet.

You can rent boats, canoes and kayaks or mountain bikes. Pac sports sport centre is located at the hostel, that is why an interesting challenge for those who want more adrenaline, is participating in high ropes course (in the yard of the hostel) or experience rafting, canyoning, hydrospeeed, caving or tandem paragliding trip above the Bohinj lake.

In the winter time guests can choose among activities such as snow rafting, day and night trips with snowshoes, winter paragliding, ice climbing, sledding or skating, organized by the Hostel Pod Voglom team.
