Photographer's Note

Vogel lies within the Triglav National Park, at the head of the Bohinj valley. You can reach the lower Vogel cable car station on foot by following one of the maintained trails along the north or south shores of Lake Bohinj. You can also access it by means of public transport, the Bohinj tourist boat or by car, which can be parked in our free parking area. Vogel cable car then takes you to the upper cable car station.

The upper Vogel cable car station, located at 1,535 metres, greets visitors with spectacular panoramic views of Komna, the Triglav mountains and all the way to the Kamnik and Savinja Alps. This is why Vogel is an excellent choice for anyone who wishes to admire the views of the Alps .

Vogel is also an ideal starting point for those looking for ideas for shorter and longer hiking tours.
he Julian Alps (in Slovenian Julijske Alpe ) are a mountain range of the Southern Limestone Alps that stretch from northeastern Italy to Slovenia, where they rise to 2,864 m at Mount Triglav, the highest peak in Slovenia. A large part of the Julian Alps is included in Triglav National Park. The second highest peak of the range, the 2,755 m high J˘f di Montasio, lies in Italy.

The Julian Alps cover an estimated 4,400 km2 (of which 1,542 km2 lies in Italy). They are located between the Sava Valley and Canale Valley. They are divided into the Eastern and Western Julian Alps.

The Julian Alps were known in antiquity as Alpe Iulia. The range was named after Julius Caesar of the Julian clan, perhaps due to a road built by Julius Caesar and completed by Augustus.
