Escape to Bohinj

Vogel Cable Car

The Vogel Cable Car is a super way to get high in the mountains quickly. On a sunny, clear days, the views are amazing. Relax in the café with a hot chocolate, or take advantage of the lift to start one of the numerous, well-marked, high-altitude hiking trails.  For the more energetic, try the zip line or mountain bike park; for the fearless, paragliding offers an unforgettable experience. 

In winter, the Vogel Cable Car is busy each day with skiers who come up to Vogel Ski Centre.  

The Ride up to Vogel


The Vogel Cable Car leaves at the west end of Lake Bohinj. There is a car-park, although it does get busy in summer and during the ski season.

The cable car can accommodate pushchairs, wheelchairs and bikes.

In just 4 minutes, the Vogel Cable Car transports you from the lakeside in Ukanc (579m) to Vogel Ski Station (1535m). At the top of the cable car there is a fabulous viewing platform and a café serving drinks and snacks.
