Bohinj is 96 miles (154 km) from the small, riverside town of Vremski britof, gateway to the UNESCO-listed Skocjan Caves. The fastest and most convenient way to make the journey is by car—rental or private transfer—in about two hours. If you’re interested in extending the drive, consider adding some of Slovenia’s other highlights to the trip.
The regional bus, which takes about four hours in total, is an alternative to driving. There is no direct route, so you must connect in Ljubljana and end in Divača. From Divača, the best option is to take a ten-minute taxi to Vremski britof.
The train is another option, although not as convenient as driving or the bus. The route starts in Bohinj’s transport hub Bohinjska Bistrica and ends in Divača. Similar to the bus option, you’ll take a taxi to Vremski britof. It requires at least one connection and takes 3-5 hours depending on departure time.

Duration: 2 hours
The fastest and most convenient way to reach Vremski britof from Bohinj is by rental car or private transfer. The drive is very scenic, traveling through the Bohinj Valley and Lake Bled, a great stop for a meal and a stroll. Once past Bled, you’ll connect to highway E61 towards Ljubljana where you’ll sneak glimpses of the Kamnik–Savinja Alps. Škofja Loka is another great town for lunch or coffee breaks.
Once past Ljubljana, you’ll continue on E61 towards Postojna. Postojna Cave and Predjama Castle are both along the way and worth the slight detours. At the town of Divača, road 405 takes you east to Vremski britof.
By Bus and Private Transfer
Duration: 4 hours
The bus is another option, although it requires one connection in Ljubljana and isn’t direct. The second leg of the journey will take you as far as Divača. From there, an additional 10-minute taxi gets you to Vremski britof. Know that the bus takes the same route as driving, so although it’s a longer trip, you won’t sacrifice the mountain views.
By Train and Private Transfer
Duration: 3-5 hours
The train is the least-convenient option, although can be faster than the bus if you catch one of the shorter routes. These routes take 3-3.5 hours and usually connect one or two times—most likely in Nova Gorica and/or Sežana. Otherwise, keep in mind that some routes can be as long as five hours.
Note that the train isn’t direct; rather, it’ll take you as far as Divača. Like the bus, you’ll just need to grab a 10-minute taxi to Vremski britof.
