Full description
Depart Zagreb and journey to the village of Rastoke and enjoy a coffee break at the gateway to the amazing Plitvice Lakes area. Get a glimpse at some of the small waterfalls, well-preserved mills and traditional houses that line the banks of the Slunjčica River

Arrive at Plitvice Lakes National Park and follow your knowledgeable guide to discover the 16 terraced lakes formed by natural travertine dams. Learn how the lakes can change color throughout the day, dependent on the angle of the sun’s rays and the mineral makeup of the water.

Walk through the park on the guided sightseeing tour before your guide takes you to a local restaurant for an optional lunch.

An exceptional trip from the pick-up point to the return. It was a beautiful clear and warm day. Marko, our guide, was exceptional. He set a gentle pace throughout the park, giving us explanations and points of interest along the way. The restaurant that we stopped at for lunch was beyond expectation. The most delicious mushrooms we have ever tasted and excellent service. Yes! For a truly memorable adventure, book this trip.
