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

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 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.

Public transport

During the summer months, the waterfall is accessible by regular bus lines. During the rest of the year, it is easier to visit with a private car, otherwise you can get to the village Ukanc by bus and from there continue the path through the beautiful forest along the macadam road.

  • Bus timetables (exit station: WATERFALL SAVICA in summer / UKANC in rest of the year)

Getting there

The Savica waterfall is located at the end of the Bohinj valley. So when we arrive to Bohinjska Bistrica, we head towards Bohinj Lake and from there continue towards the village called Ukanc, where at the main crossroad we path continue straight. The path then takes us through the forest up the road to the Savica hut.

From there, continue on foot.

Parking

A large payable car parking is located a 20 minutes walk away from the waterfall itself at the Savica hut.
