Waterfall Savica, Bohinjsko Jezero

3.9
#1 of 11 in Things to do in Bohinjsko Jezero
Bursting from the underground of the Seven Triglav Lakes Valley and cutting deep into the gorge, Waterfall Savica is the most famous Slovenian waterfall. It cascades from a height of 78 m (256 ft) over two slopes forming the shape of the letter A. The water fills a pool artificially supported by a small dam. Cross the stone bridge over the Mala Savica and walk above the gorge through meadows and woods. A little cabin-like house at the top offers views of the waterfall and the lake. Bring a raincoat if you want to get really close to the waterfall to avoid getting drenched by the spray.

  • Visiting in the winter is not an easy task, but it's worth the experience. Although we did not climb all the way, what we did will be remembered for years. Don't give up on this  more »
  • It was a challenge to climb up in the snow but so worth it to see the clear waters of the waterfall. The view over the mountains to Lake Bohinj is stunning also.  more »
  • It is easy to reach the site! And we enjoyed a lot the real nature and wonderful colours. Water is really smaragd green like at the picture. Interesting fact: it is the birthplace of biggest Serbian r...  more »

  • Oh my, what a beautiful place. We were lucky enough to visit during winter when they had over a meter of snow. Must say, probably not the best idea going up with a 4 year old as it does get slightly slippery the way up to the waterfall, but we came prepared with snow boots 👢! My daughter loved it. Amazing scenery, very quiet, fresh air and snow!! What else could you ask for :)
  • Walked from Ukanc to here, trip is about 4-5 kilometers and the path is in decent condition (there was a big storm recently so the trail there was obstacled with few fallen trees). Once you arrive to the bridge leading across the stream, you find yourself on the parking lot for cars and there is a gift shop and Café as well (both closed during winter season). Follow the signs and make your way to another bridge about 150 meters away from the parking lot. There is an entrance fee stall, however this is not open during the winter season and there is a sign to enter to the path at your own responsibility. I guess that there is no maintenance on the path during winter. In the summer season the entrance fee is 1,50€ for kids and 3€ for adults. Stone steps lead you to a path that takes about 20 minutes to complete, path itself is not very difficult and we saw even small children taking it, this path leads you to a viewpoint and waterfall. The same path takes you down to the entrance where you payed your fee and there is also an toilet there. In the end I think I enjoyed more the views than the waterfall, but it was really nice trip to make. As far as I know there is no bus services leading to the place so we walked down on the side of the road.
  • A beautiful waterfall. Only a 20 minute walk (40 min return) from the parking area and not too difficult - but very slippery on the ice.
  • Very nice waterfalls. 570 stairs. Not easy to go up. Come earl at the opening
  • Very beautiful and easy to reach waterfall, 15-20 minutes walk mostly uphill from a parking lot. National park fee 3€ and parking 3€ for 3 hours. Worth the price. Might get crowded on a high season so recommend to be early.
