Escape to Bohinj

Walk to Studor Village

The upper Bohinj valley is much quieter than its lower counterpart. The “main road” here takes little tourist traffic, and the cycle path even less.

This gentle circuit takes you along the cycle path through meadows next to the Ribnica river to the small village of Studor, nestled under the mountain of the same name. A bridleway at the foot of the mountain takes you back to Stara Fužina.

Directions to Studor Village

From Escape to Bohinj, cross the main road and take the village road opposite, with a wooden barn on your right and small pasture to the left. After 400m, cross the Ribnica river and turn left onto the cycle path which hugs its left bank. As you walk up the U-shaped glacial valley, Studor mountain is on your left and Rudnica is on your right. Hikes to the top of both are described on other pages. 

After 1.5km, the path turns left, crossing back over the river and then the “main road”. After 200m more, turn right over the cattle grid to head into the centre of the village. Studor is famous for its “Kozalec”, the wooden hayrack/barn structures that originated here. In the middle of the village is a small square with a small shop/café.

Return back to the cattlegrid, passing a small cheese shop on the way. Instead of turning left back down the path you came up, keep straight on. After a few hundred metres, the road peters out and becomes a bridleway. This brings you to the top of Stara Fužina by the church, from where it is just 5 mins to return down the road to Escape to Bohinj.
