Highly recommend taking a hike to the Slap Savica Waterfall. The trail is well maintained and marked. You do have to pay a small fee to park and fee to enter the trail to the waterfall. Once you reach the waterfall, you also have a high view of Lake Bohinj.

In order to hike to the waterfall, you must pay a small fee of 2 euro. Though a popular attraction, the hike is not for those with mobility issues. Winding stairs take you through the thick forest. At times, it opens up and offers you a pretty incredible backdrop of mountains cascading into Bohinj a few miles away. It takes... More

From the parking area (3,00 €) starts a well organized path leading to the viewpoint in no more than 20 minutes. The 70-metres waterfall is gorgeous and you arrive really close. I've been lucky because I've visited in late october, when the the beech forest turns colours in a flaming red and yellow.

Waterfall parking is easy to find. It is a paid parking lot, which is typical for tourist attractions. We travel extensively and weren't impressed by this waterfall. They created stairs to climb to the view, which is unfortunate because it is a beautiful forest and a meandering path would have been much nicer and easier to climb. When you finish... More

In Slovenia's only national park, this waterfall is a headline attraction 30 minute drive from Lake Bled. The park is rustic and has the trailhead to many hikes and alpine climbs. This particular walk to the Savica waterfall is very challenging, 20 minutes of relentless climbing, mostly paved in concrete but with many rocks and tree roots in the foot... More

We chose to start our excursion at Bohinj Camp so it took us quite time to get to waterfall. The hike was a pleasant one, and the last part with many stairs tired us a bit, but finally a sight we've seen was well worth the sweat.
