Full description
Granted UNESCO World Heritage status in 1979, Plitvice is located roughly halfway between Zagreb and Zadar. Marked on old maps as the “Devil’s Garden,” the spectacular area consists of 16 interconnected terraced lakes, gushing over travertine rock covered in moss.

Departing from Zadar at 08:15, you will drive for about 1 hour and 45 minutes before reaching Plitvice National Park, home to diverse flora and fauna, including wild boar, wolves, and even bears!

Once at the national park, begin your 4-hour guided tour, visiting Upper and Lower lakes and enjoying the unspoiled nature of one of the most beautiful national parks in the world. Although you can’t swim in the protected lakes, your guide will show you the best places to explore and relax in this paradise of natural wonders.

Besides walking, sightseeing includes an electric boat ride on Kozjak lake. Return to Zadar at around 18:00.

AMAZING!! Easy pickup point at the edge of the old town. Very comfortable vehicle for our small group of 12. We had the most glorious sunny weather. We arrived at Entrance 1 outside the cafe. Our guide gave us a box breakfast & we sat at the tables in front of the cafe. You have time to get a coffee here. We walked into the park & down towards the bus that took us to the top of the upper lakes. We are in our 60’s & reasonably fit but our guide set the pace to accommodate all in our party. The walk is incredible & our guide explained various things along the way. We walked down passed all of the upper lakes & then took a boat to connect with the lower lakes. At this point there is a comfort stop & time to grab something to eat. There is also a stop at a restaurant on the way home for a more substantial lunch or simply a snack. I cannot speak more highly about our guide Ante. He was exceptional & I truly appreciated hearing the history of Zadar, Plitvice Lakes & Croatia. Fabulous!

Please make sure that you can collect people from Stari Grad. We took a taxi from Stari Grad to go to the pick up points which cost us a lot of Money but the drop off was available at Stari Grad. No complaints about the tour itself or our guide or driver. It was good.

Overall a great tour! The pickup location was very convenient. We didn’t have to wait in line at the park when getting our tickets (which they did for us, but it was fast) Also, our tour guide (Ante) did an amazing job of providing information about the history of Croatia and the ecology of Plitvice lakes, while also making the tour fun :)
