“Nice Walk, Average Waterfall”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

We walked from the lake via the track and returned the same way. Its a bit of a hike uphill for the last km or two but a rewarding walk in the 'near' wild although from the car park before the entrance, the crowd grow as busloads of day visitors struggle up the path from here.
I don't think I have ever had to pay and entrance fee before to cast my eyes on what I considered to be a pretty tame display of nature, but here I did.
To be honest, it wasn't worth a fee in my estimation, but I did enjoy the walk.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

You can reach this waterfall by walking or driving up the road from Zlatorog hotel in Ukanc. Once your reach the entrance there are around 500 steps to go, however we still enjoyed it as the area is very beautiful. Once we got to the waterfall we were quite disappointed as we could barely see anything with the morning fog, but we waited around 15 minutes and then it all cleared away. The waterfall is not a very big one but still worth a visit if you're in the area.

“Good, but don't put it top of your list”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

The waterfall was nice and there were some lovely views on the hike up to it, but it was far from awe inspiring and probably one of the less memorable things to do or see in the area.

“Lovely hike to a wonderul sight!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

This was not our first visit to the Savica Waterfall, but it was the first time we visited it with our child. The hike uphill is quite good and safe (trails and stairs). We visited it in the summer, and this time in winter, but it looked more like autumn because there was no snow. Wonderful leaf colors in the forest! Best to visit in the off-season because the platform with the view of the wonderful is not big and if there is a crowd trying to photograph the wonderful, it could ruin the whole experience.

“Lots of steps”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Not much water due to low rainfall so a little disappointing. Also exhausting climbing up - so walk a boring one. We much preferred other walks we did - for instance up the gorge, lovely!
