We’ll start today’s fairytale adventure at Lake Bohinj, the largest natural lake of glacial origin in Slovenia. Maybe Lake Bohinj lacks Lake Bled’s glamour, but it’s less crowed and in many ways more authentic. Through the pristine forest of the Triglav National Park we are going to follow the main tributary, the Savica River. The trail will take us up to the magical Savica Waterfall which is very unique among the world waterfalls – in the hidden underground its watercourse is divided into two parts. The famous A-shaped waterfall normally comes into sight at an altitude of 836 m and is 78 m high.
At Lake Bled time permitted for picture taking stop!
Returns to original departure point.
Small group approach with carefully planned time. Experienced local tour operator’s chauffeur guide will collect you at the designated location for an informative hourly ride to the mountainous Alpine Region of Lake Bohinj. There you’ll the start your exploration of the only national park in Slovenia. The Triglav National Park covers almost 5% of all the Slovenian territory.
Lake Bohinj and surrounding area are known as one of the most interesting Slovenian regions as far as ethnology and natural protected area is concerned. We’ll drive by the picturesque villages along the Sava River passing by many “toplar” hayracks, spotting bee hives as the region is famous for its beekeepers and local honey production.
Short stop at Lake Bohinj, nestled in the heart of the Julian Alps. This jewel is a precious natural resource and at the same time offers endless opportunities for outdoor activities. More than a third of the lake water flows into it from the Karst springs under the lake surface along the northern shore. During heavy rainfall, the Karst waters gush out as the Govic Spring on the Pršivec hillside.
Your time in Bohinj would not be complete without a visit to one of Slovenia’s most famous and the most scenic waterfall. To reach the waterfall you’ll have to master a roughly 30 min. walk up a partially paved and well maintained forest path with about 500 steps. All along the path there are benches and vista stops. The waterfall itself drops a towering 78m into a large water sink. An inspirational sight. It has often been written about by well-known Slovenian poets and writers.
Stop at Lake Bled on the way back will be time permitted.
After aa pleasant and enjoyable half day experience we will return back to Bled and Ljubljana. Drop off will be at same location as pick up.
