Bohinj Lake - The ICF Canoe Marathon World Cup Venue

Slovenia is a beautiful country. Lying in the heart of Europe, with more than a third of its area protected, this small, green piece of land is where the Alps meet the Mediterranean and the Pannonia Plain meets the Karst. Due to its mountainous landscape, the country appeals for a lot of sport activities. No wonder the ICF Canoe Marathon World Cup is held right here. On 7th and 8th June, Lake of Bohinj, the largest permanent lake in North Slovenia lying next to Bohinj, a picturesque clannish village hosts the Marathon World Cup 2014. A perfect training ground for any canoeist.
