The path which leads you to the waterfall is nice and easy. The view is outstanding and you can really fell the power of the water, but at the same time everything is peaceful.

It's just a 10 minute downhill walk from the parking to the waterfall. The waterfall is pretty but low on water in August (I guess spring would be the perfect time to visit). There is no entrance fee or parking fee.

Short walk from carpark to see a well-known Bovec waterfall - not the most impressive waterfall but pretty and tranquil.

Gorgeous colors. The photos really don't do it justice. There is a lot of wonderful nature in this area (and the Soca river is already pretty amazing), but this is still worth a detour. I would recommend approaching it from the parking lot though (there's...More

It worth going there. You can drive almost all the way, you have to walk about 10 minutes. The way back is harder, but can be done for elderly people too.

A beautiful waterfall slightly hidden away from everything else. It’s a perfect spot for soaking up some sun, enjoying an afternoon nap or plunge in the icy pool. Definitely worth a visit. Easy to get to from the parking lot if you arrive by car,...More

Short walkn from the parking lot. Great place for picnic or just having a break. Walking is short but it is in a down hill walk

We somehow got off the trail coming down from Station B to Bovec so missed the side trip to the Falls and ended up driving there the next day. Plenty of parking and a 5 minute walk downhill and 10 min uphill.

We dropped by the friendly tourist office at Bovec to seek directions to the waterfall, and learnt there are actually two near Bovec– the Slap Virje and Slap Boka. For the Virje, we were directed to take the road behind the church and take the...More

This waterfall is really beautiful. You can sit on stones and enjoy the view and the water sound. If the weather is hot you can actually try the water and swim for a while.

We were there while it was raining. It was just crazy beautiful! We loved it and it is an absolute must see and do while visiting Bovec!

Having struggled a little with our day in Bovec, this waterfall made it for us. Easy 5 minute walk with young children from the car park. Superior to a waterfall that we had paid to view in Bohinj. Free to visit and park. Beautiful and...More

You can definitely walk from Bovec to the falls. Many people park inBovec and walk past the church to Pluzna or they park by Kanin and walk past the Golf course. When you reach Pluzna the trail is well signed and becomes... More
