SAVICA WATERFALL

The third most visited attraction in Slovenia. A spectacular waterfall, hidden amidst the steep walls of the Komarča.

THE MAGNIFICENT SAVICA WATERFALL

The Savica Waterfall is the source of the Sava Bohinjka, known under the name of Savica to the spot where it flows into Lake Bohinj. It is one of the must-see sights for Bohinj first-timers, and it is very possible that you will join those who visit Savica each and every time they come to Bohinj.

Savica is very unique among world waterfalls – its watercourse is divided into two parts in the hidden undergrounds. The famous A-shaped waterfall normally comes into sight at an altitude of 836 m and is 78 m high.

It is fed by the waters from the Valley of the Triglav Lakes and Pršivec that flow to it through a horizontal cave tunnel. The Karst cave with the source is full of siphons and lakes, and is only accessible with a guide and proper equipment.

HIKING STARTING POINT

Koča pri Savici hut is a starting point for hikes to Komna and the Valley of the Seven Triglav Lakes. The first hiking trail leads from Dom Savica on the left side (not in the direction of the waterfall) through the Pekel valley. The hike to the Dom na Komni hut takes approximately three hours.

The second hiking trail goes across the bridge over the Savica by the hut and then towards Komarča. The steep and sometimes quite open but well secured trail with magnificent views takes you first to the Črno jezero lake and then to the hut at the Dvojno jezero lake (a 4 to 5-hour walk).

You can reach the Savica Waterfall in different ways:

  • Walk along the marked trail from the Zlatorog Hotel (approximately one-hour walk to the parking place below the Savica Waterfall)
  • Ride by car on the asphalt road to the parking place at the Savica Hut
  • Ride a bicycle on the walking trail (mountain bikes recommended) or along the asphalt road
  • Take a bus to the parking place below the waterfall; the bus only drives during the summer (in other seasons, the drives takes you to the village of Ukanc every day)
