Cycle to the most famous waterfall in Bohinj.
The cycling tour to the Savica Waterfall mostly runs along the main road that slightly ascends the entire time. When you come to the park, leave your bike there and hike to the waterfall. Spring when the snow is melting, or after heavy rainfall is the time when the waterfall shows all its glory. It springs up in the open in two sections amidst the steep wall of Komarča. The higher part of the waterfall measures 78 m, the lower one 25 m. Two great Slovenian poets-France Prešeren and Valentin Vodnik dedicated their verses to the waterfall. The water to the waterfall runs from the Seven Triglav Lakes Valley and from the rocky slopes of Pršivec. The waterfall is quite majestic after a rainy period and even in dry periods it never runs dry. After a long dry period of time, only the left and lower part of the waterfall runs down. A beautiful rainbow stretches above the pool below the waterfall in sunny weather and when the foamy water falls to the pool. Return along the same path.
We advise you to start the tour to the Savica Waterfall in Ribčev Laz and leave your car at any of the marked car parks, and cycle towards Ukanc (follow the signs for the Vogel Ski Centre and the Savica Waterfall).
The road is also intended for motor vehicles so be careful while cycling.
The tour is appropriate for all types of bicycles.
