At the end of the world, where fairy tales are at home – Golden Horn’s Fairytale Trail

At the end of the world, where fairy tales are at home – Golden Horn’s Fairytale Trail

Where is the end of the world and what is the Golden Horn’s Fairytale Trail?

Along the fairy trail in Ukanc, you will find characters from local fairy tales. There are seven in Ukanc on the 2 km circular route, one in the car park at the Ukanc/Vogel/Slap Savica junction and another at the entrance to the Savica waterfall.


This is an unique event. It is something special. It takes place on a two-kilometre-long trail that leads you along the river, through the forest, across meadows and past Lake Bohinj. It’s quiet here all year round, with only the seven heroes of the Bohinj fairy tales waiting for you with their wooden playgrounds. But the “fairytale” weekend is lively, with around 30 stops along the way – around 30 opportunities for children to move, play, learn, create or just develop their senses.


When entering the fairytale trail, children are given a booklet of fairytale creatures and 9 stickers to stick and colour in the booklet.


An adult can walk the route in half an hour, but it is certainly not possible to experience everything in one day with children, even though the event starts at 9:30 and finishes at 14:00 every day. Come – learn new skills and take home good memories.



– 2,00 € per person
– children under 2 years: free
– GRATIS! All children up to 14. years receive a booklet and stickers of fairy tale characters
