Full description

Visit Croatia's first national park, Plitvice Lakes National Park, one of the greatest natural wonders of Europe. Also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the park's unique geology makes for a popular destination for people from all around the world. Your tour starts at 7:00 AM and lasts for approximately 10 hours. Meet up in Split and be greeted by your guide and board your transportation for the day. While driving to the park, have the chance to enjoy the beautiful Croatian landscape.

Upon arrival to the park, you will be given a map of the park and told about the day's itinerary. Then, have 4 hours of free time to explore 16 beautiful lakes of crystal blue-green water and hypnotic cascades, tour 7 different routes, hike 4 different trails, or just lounge in the shade.

Plitvice's natural phenomenon causes it to constantly change through sedimentation of calcium carbonate. It creates special kinds of algae and moss, tufa, or travertine which are deposited to form the natural dams that separate the lakes.

See the changing travertine barriers, curtains, stalactites, channels, and cascades being built and the existing ones. Besides the lakes, there are some interesting caves in which remains of prehistoric settlements have been found. After touring you can also catch a boat or train ride.

At around 5:00 PM you will head back to Split and arrive around 8:00 PM

Wonderful experience with super educated and funny tour guide! I was worried about the guide walking too fast or slow or that I wouldnt be able to hear him but we all went as a group at a smooth pace and I was able to hear him speak throughout the tour.

Super nice guides, full of humor and good humor! I was afraid of the duration of the journey but it passes quickly we take the opportunity to look at the landscape, rest and listen to anecdotes from the guide. The visit to the park passes quickly but we make the most of it...A wonderful day!

This trip was amazing. Sandra and Z were so fun and gave very interesting information. I didn’t realise that I was on a guided tour but I was glad that I was. You had plenty of time to enjoy the lakes and the waterfalls and even the bus trip showed you some beautiful scenery around Croatia.
