11km from Bohinj lake, 4km from Vogel ski point. There is free parking, nice wooden restourant and marked trekking roads.
The entrance to the trek is 3 euros per person. We need more than 20 minutes walk up to the stairs because we had lot of stops to take a rest or take a photos. It is nice staircase path through the forest but not the easy one.
Along the path there are several nice viewpoints overlook Bohinj lake.
At the end, waterfalls are powefrul and amazing!
Be aware that, in the winter period they are open until 4pm.

Savica waterfall is a very good and nice destination if you are in Bohinj region. The autoroute is very tortuous and narrrow so be careful and watch the oncomming traffic (especially the buses). The parking is not free, you need to pay 3 EUR. Then you need to pay for entrance and go walking (not easy walking) ca 30 minutes with much more stairs in the forest. You can't get lost! Just go forward. On the top you will find the waterfall which is incredible high. Unfortunatelly you can only look at it far away. At the parking you can eat in the restaurant but the picnic is forbidden at the tables.

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 world and for me, this was just ok. I'd only recommend taking a lot if you were in the area. What was most disappointing is that the waterfall itself is locked off by a steel gate. I would have liked to walk down to the water and even have a swim if it was safe to do so.

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, but we did make it! It was well worth the effort and we were rewarded by a glorious view of the waterfall cascading down the mountainside. We followed it up by a trip up Mt. Vogel on the cable car. A very fine fall afternoon in Lake Bohinj.

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 most part) until you get to the platform for viewing the waterfall itself. We enjoyed it, but felt somewhat underwhelmed after having visited the phenomenal Slap Kojak, near Kobarid the previous day. There’s a parking lot where we paid a €3 fee and then paid a further €3 per head entrance fee – candidly, I think that’s a bit much for what is on offer and needs to be rationalised as a single composite charge.

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.

Savica may not be the most amazing waterfall, but if you are in the are it makes sense to see it. You have to climb some steps for 20 mins and pay 3€ to park the car + 3€/pp for entrance. The color of the water is spectacular

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, it’s not super tall. The viewing area is pretty far away from the falls, too. The trail requires 3 Euro to get access. Then a moderate climb of over 500 stairs to get up to the small viewing area. Slightly disappointing that there was limited space to picnic or anything at the falls themselves. Just a small covered hut with benches, and a 10 meter sidewalk viewing area. Too small and crowded with people trying to take selfies. Overall, if you're in the area, it's worth it.
