Stroll across wooden bridges and paths that cross the cascades.

Totally work it!

Elena was a fantastic guide for our tour. She was full of fun facts and super sassy! The walk around Plitvice was a good 4hours but really managable for any level of fitness and there were alternative routes for anyone who wanted to skip ahead. The lakes are stunning and really worth making the journey for and I'm so glad we scheduled it in to part of our stay in Split.

This was a very enjoyable experience. There were some long lines, but it was not unbearable. Our guide knew a route through the park that avoided some of the lines, but some could not be avoided. The views are spectacular even though it is the dry season. The dry season means the falls are not as full as possible, but the trails were dry.

A fantastic experience, made even greater by the humor of the guide.

A fantastic experience at the lakes. The weather did not cooperate fully, so please beware the 180 change in climate between Split and the lakes. There is a tunnel you go through, one of the longest in Croatia, and once you're in the Lica/Lika region, the climate is very different. My wife and I went from having over 40C temps in Split to low 20s and even high teens when at the lakes. It was also raining, but the guide paid for ponchos for everyone and encouraged us onward, letting us know that the rain would help alleviate wait times at the falls and boat rides, which was partially true. Please read the description of the tour, since it seemed some people were unaware that the entrance fees to the park were not included and they are not cheap - around 250KN per person.
