In Slovenia, you can find a lot of waterfalls. Not surprising, with all those mountains and the water flowing through them. There are more than 300 waterfalls in Slovenia. We won’t go through them all.
Near Lake Bohinj you will find the beautiful Savica waterfall, which can only be reached on foot. A walk through an enchanting green landscape with beautiful views of the surrounding area. That nature in Slovenia would be beautiful, we expected. But so beautiful, that took us by surprise too. I am eager to show you some more of the country. Starting with the Savica waterfall. Walk with me through the Slovenian landscape to one of the most beautiful waterfalls we have seen in ages.
Hiking to the Savica Waterfall
From Lake Bohinj, you drive along a narrow road, one of those you hope you don’t meet oncoming traffic, through the woods to the starting point of the hiking trail to the Savica waterfall. Park your car or bike, buy a ticket and you are ready for a very nice hike.
Beautiful views The hike to the Savica waterfall starts off right away. From minute 1, the path leads you up steep stairs. You will definitely get hot while walking. But the hard work is definitely rewarded. The surroundings are incredibly green and during the hike you will have several lookouts with amazing views of the green mountains with Lake Bohinj in the background.
The higher you get, the more beautiful the landscape becomes. Dense forests give way to green-covered white cliffs and in the background you start to hear the murmur of the waterfall. The moment you pass the final bend, an almost magical spectacle unfolds. The Savica waterfall is a picture for good reason. It is not spectacularly large or ferocious, but rather refined and fits perfectly into the landscape.
Good to know
Visiting the waterfall is not free. An entrance ticket costs €3 per person, which is actually a great price. In fact, for this money you get a beautiful hike and an almost priceless view of the waterfall.
From Lake Bohinj, it takes about 15 minutes to drive to the car park near the waterfall. This is the starting point of the hike.
We walked the hike to the Savica waterfall in about 20 minutes. The way up is steep, which makes the hike quite tough.
Leave your flip-flops at home and opt for a pair of trainers or trainers. Much more comfortable for this short hike. Hiking boots are of course also possible.
Not far from Kobarid, above the emerald green Soča River, there is a gorge of the Kozjak stream, where the 15-metre-high Kozjak Waterfall particularly stands out. This popular natural sight creates the image of a heavenly corner hidden from the everyday world by tall, dark walls, covered in limestone sediments, just like in the karstic caves.
An arranged footpath will lead you to the waterfall. In some places, it is complemented by small wooden bridges and ends with a terrace with a mystical view of the rocky amphitheatre with a green pool and a white beam of water.
The mysterious Kozjak waterfall, which is captured in a stony chamber, is according to many the most beautiful waterfall in Slovenia.
The Kozjak Stream, which springs in several headwater sections high under Krnčica (2,142 m), flows through multiple pools and six waterfalls, of which only two are accessible to visitors: in addition to the Veliki Kozjak (Kozjak Waterfall), there is the slightly lower, 8-metre-high Mali Kozjak waterfall.
Kozjak Waterfall, the Protected Natural Area The Kozjak Stream with waterfalls is a protected natural treasure. Even though the Kozjak Waterfall is an excellent destination for a walk in the hot summer days, because the steep walls preserve the pleasant coolness and slightly lower temperatures, the pool under the waterfall is not suitable for bathing. Help preserve the original experience of the Kozjak Waterfall for other visitors too and only choose bathing areas next to the Soča, Nadiža and Idrijca rivers for bathing.
Through this famous gorge, flows the Radovna River. It is 1.16 km long and light north of Lake Bled, on the edge of Triglav National Park. You walk from the entrance on wooden and stone footpaths, along the river. The river has a beautiful turquoise colour and it is so clear you can see the fish swimming.
The water is not suitable for swimming. It flows too fast and is cold. However, you can reach the water around some places. To do so, you have to climb over some rocks. Climbing the stones also makes it fun for the children, besides the beauty of the gorge.
At the end of the gorge is a waterfall. Some people think that the falling water at the dam is the waterfall, but this is not so. So when you get to the dam, walk on to see the real waterfall. There is a small kiosk here. At the bottom of the waterfall, you can swim in the water. To get here, a path leads down from the right side of the kiosk.
The gorge is incredibly touristy. So it can be very crowded. At the end, you can choose to walk a route further, but most people take the same path back. The paths are narrow, so when it is crowded, you regularly have to wait for oncoming traffic to pass.
Despite being so touristy, it really is a must-see in Slovenia.
In north-east Slovenia, in the Triglav national park, you will find the Tolmin and Zadlsascica gorges. However, the name Tolmin is often used for both gorges together. These gorges were created by the Tolminska River and together they are about 2 kilometres long. The river is clear and has a beautiful turquoise colour. The greenery around the river is very beautiful. If you want to hike here, you need hiking boots with good grip. The path is steep in some places with quite a few steps. Especially if it has rained, the paths can be slippery.
Starting point is in Zatolmin and you will pass several natural phenomena. One is a thermal heat source, where the water averages between 18 and 21°C. There is also a large stone stuck between the walls of the gorge, called ‘the bear’s head’. A beautiful waterfall can be seen behind the bear head.
If you want to go here with children, make sure they have good mobility. The steep path can be very challenging, but therefore fun.
Slovenia’s coastline is only 47 kilometres long. Beach holidays are therefore not something you can do well in Slovenia. Besides, there are few sandy beaches. However, this does not mean that the beaches are not beautiful.
Slovenian beaches consist largely of pebble beaches.
This impressive cave was formed by the river flowing through it: the Reka. The river flows 50 kilometres above ground and then goes underground in the Karst area. It is the largest underground ravine in Europe and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site for a reason.
If you visit the cave, you will first have to walk with the park’s guides to the entrance, which is about 500 metres away. When you go inside, you will first come to the Tiha Jama, or silent cave, where you will encounter numerous stalactite formations.
After that, you come to the underground ravine of the Reka. There is an illuminated walkway along the rock face and you will cross the Cerkvenik bridge, which is 15 metres above the river bed. The path is partly a sloping slope, and the rest are stairs. So nice climbing and scrambling.
During the tour, the guide occasionally tells some things. Whether you can see and hear the river depends on the weather. Apart from the illuminated walkway, there is no lighting. You can see the river only by indirect light from outside. When it has rained a lot, there is more water in the river, you can hear it better than if there was a dry spell.
When you almost get outside, and the guide points it out, you may take some photos. Outside, you have to make a choice, will you walk (back), or take the lift up? With children, we definitely recommend taking the lift.
Despite these caves not being as well known as Postojna’s, it can be crowded. You enter the cave in a large group and you are not allowed to take photos. The guides cannot speak Dutch, which is a pity for the children, but if you can speak English or German, it is easy to follow. This way, the children can practise their language skills!
This cave is the most accessible of all the caves in Slovenia, and it is the most visited cave in Europe. You can take a large group through the cave in a little train, very special and fun for the kids. Here you can see the beauty of the Karst landscape, including stalactites and stalagmites. After a 2-kilometre ride, you continue on foot through the caves. The guide tells some interesting things, and perhaps a fun story.
You can combine your visit to the cave with a visit to Predjama Castle, or explore the entire Postojnska jama park. The park includes the castle, as well as Hotel Jama. Here, besides staying overnight, you can visit secret rooms. These rooms show the history of the secret service of the former Yugoslavia.
The park also includes a vivarium, where you can see baby dragons! Unfortunately, they are not real dragons, but that is what the Olms are called because they look quite similar. These special little animals live their entire lives in the caves. They are the only vertebrates in Europe that live exclusively in caves.
There is also an exhibition on the Karst and the caves. Its history is shown in a modern and interactive way.
If you are curious about how a miller spends his day, you can do so at the Modrijan Homestead near the Pivka Ponor River.
