Coming to Velenje lake is really worth it, as you can spend your day relaxing in the shade of big trees, enjoying a nice swim in the perfectly refreshing water or be a bit more active by renting a stand-up paddle board, kayak, surf board or even a little rowing boat to explore the shore further away. Feeling hungry? You’ll find quite some options to choose from, especially worth a visit is the “pancake truck”, just next to the main cafe, where they’ll serve you delicious sweet or salty pancakes, or as it’s called in Slovenian – palačinka.

Close to the lake, you can also visit the town of Velenje, with some interesting venues, or you can choose to hike the nearby hills for great views.


Nex to the lake they have a quite big camp, so you can bring your tent and spend a night or two in the beautiful green surroundings and jump into the lake for a morning swim.
