Welcome at our home

… and in the land of the prettiest alpine flowers. ALPINE FLOWER is the name of our six apartments, four of which are located at the Gorenc Home in Bohinjska Bistrica while two of them are located at Škantar's in Ribčev Laz right next to Lake Bohinj. The distance between the houses is approximately 6 kilometers.

We have a long tradition of renting our rooms to domestic and foreign guests who want to spent their holiday or at least a weekend in Bohinj, and that tradition is passed down from generation to generation, and they have all shared their love of nature, active relaxation in the mountains or in the water, friendly socializing and delicious food. But as Bohinj is becoming an increasingly popular destination every year, taking care of our guests has become more demanding and especially stressful for our parents in the main season. That’s why the younger generation stepped in more actively, and together, we believe the combination of experience and fresh energy will make our guests feel nice and comfortable and eager to return.

Why the name ALPINE FLOWER? In Bohinj, especially in the summer, you can admire many beautiful blooming plants on meadows, along paths, on slopes and in rock crevices, and our guests often ask about their names. Some of these flowers are autochthonous and we call some of them simply “Bohinj flowers”. We named the apartments after the six most beautiful ones and included their motifs in the interior design: in Gorenc Apartments in Bohinjska Bistrica you can stay in Perunika (Iris), Triglavska roža (Triglav Flower), Murka (European Orchid) or Možina (Alpine Sea Holly), while in Marija Škantar Apartments in Ribčev Laz next to Lake Bohinj you can stay in Encijan (Gentian) or Zvončica (Bellflower).



If you want to spend a peaceful yet active holiday, if you are a summer or winter recreationist, hiker or alpinist, or you would finally like to dedicate time to yourself and your family, welcome!

Bohinjska Bistrica is a great starting point for summer and winter sports, hiking, cycling and walking. There is only 6 km to Lake Bohinj and 21 km to Bled. Since we are a sports family, we can advise our guests first hand where to ride a bike, where the most beautiful mountain trails are, where to go fishing, skiing or cross-country skiing, swimming and leisuring, rowing or horseback riding. We also know where to find good cuisine and where you can try traditional Bohinj dishes. Everything you might need on your holiday is nearby: shops, restaurants, post office, bank, health centre, train and bus station. The water park with swimming pools and saunas is only 400 m away from our house, and in the vicinity there are the access to the Sava Bohinjka River, the Bohinj cycling trail and the road to Bovec and the Soča Valley. In the immediate vicinity is the northern portal of the famous Bohinj tunnel on the railway line, which leads from there to Baška Gorge and on to Nova Gorica.

Tourists have been visiting this beautiful and pristine part of the national park since 1953, when our great-grandmother began renting out rooms.

In the house, which offers a beautiful view of the Julian Alps, there are the Encijan (Gentian) Apartment and the Zvončica (Bellflower) Studio which can accommodate two guests each.
