The Sava River Trail is a thematic, interpretational trail that follows the course of river Sava from Camping Šobec to Fux's bridge near Radovljica. It leads its way down cart tracks and narrow fishermen's paths; partly through the realm of marshy forests, partly through riverside meadows - but never too far from the river.
Numerous information panels present along the route present the river basin, gravel bars, boulders, animals in riverside forest and common fish population of Sava river. Two stunning natural monuments are included in this trail : Wetlands at Šobec and Tufa springs (cascades of saturated calcium carbonate deposited on plants).
The trail is excellently signposted and can easily be combined with other nature trails in vicinity : The Three Bridges Trail, Lipnica Castle Natural Science Trail or Grabnarca Waterside Natural Trail.
Safety informationDue to several springs along the riverside, the path can occasionally be wet or muddy.
