Waterfall Savica, Bohinjsko Jezero

3.9
#2 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.

  • Beautiful waterfall but very touristy. In the summer season very crowded, especially in late morning to mid afternoon. You stand with the masses behind a fence to the waterfall. Both for parking and access waterfall you have to pay. Visit is definitely worth the climb, but there are nicer waterfalls in Slovenia, such as Pericnek near Mojstrana and Gozd Martuljek near Kranjska Gora.

  • Beautiful place to go. 20 minute uphill hike through a trail. The is an entry fee and a parking fee. There Is so you cannot reach the water.
  • 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.
  • We visited the waterfall on the 2nd of november. Parking was free, maybe because it was low season. Entry was 3 euro pp. There were not so many visitors either and the view was nice. It took us 20 minutes to go up. Just a pity that you have to stay behind a fence to see the waterfall. Nice visit though, if you are willing to pay for it.
  • Beautiful waterfall... just 10 to 15 minuets from the car park very easy hike
  • Beautiful waterfall. 20 minutes upstairs through the forest. If you come after 5 PM there is no entry fee.
