After driving to Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj, we decided to stop at Savica Waterfall. It was about a 20 minute walk to the waterfall and quite pretty to see but probably not worth the entrance fee. I've seen a lot of waterfalls across the...More

My husband and I were unsure about making the 500+ step trek up the trail to Savica. We are senior citizens and of average fitness and weren’t sure how we would do. We made it with many stops along the way to catch our breath,...More

We drove past the western shore of Bohinj beyond Ukanc, to access this waterfall formed as a result of overflowing from heavy rainfall in the karst area around Crno Jezero. It’s a leisurely 20 minute walk through a forest trail (a prepared/paved surface for the...More

The area around the lake is beautiful. Carparking is chargeable. The entry fee is too expensive for what you get. Overall the waterfall was below expectation.

Savica fall is easy to reach, an easy walk up 500 stairs. Fall is lovely and the view from up there towards Bohinj lake and valley is breathtaking. Worth going up there

As mention not very impressive height wise but , still magnificent view of green clean water and the notorious busy platform was fairly accessible at mid September. Climbing is a bit of a challenge in a hot September day.

Good waterfall, not great waterfall. But definitely worth going to if you’re at Lake Bohinj. (This is coming from someone who’s seen Niagra Falls, Yosemite, and even Plitvice in Croatia). The waterfall is relatively small (granted, this was late summer not spring) – but regardless,...More

Even in the rain this is a beautiful walk up 500+ steps to the waterfall where the water is crystal clear and an incredible green at the base. Even though the path is structured would recommend good walking shoes and specially when wet.

We walked around Lake Bohinj and took a detour to Slap (waterfall) Savica. You need to pay an entrance fee to go to the waterfall. There’s about 500 steps up but it’s very manageable for people of average fitness. Negative ions are said to be...More
