Full description

Escape the hustle and bustle of Split's city center on a full-day guided tour of one of Croatia’s most beautiful national parks at Krka. Glide along the Krka River's calm water on a boat cruise and make the most of your free time in the park once you arrive. Meet your guide at the Golden Gate of the Diocletian Palace for a transfer to Krka National Park. Alternatively, drive straight to the park in a private vehicle, depending on the option selected.

Upon arrival, go to the small town of Skradin to take a short boat cruise down the Krka River. Disembark at the Skradinski Buk waterfalls, and marvel at Europe’s largest travertine cascade system. Take in the fresh air and wild nature, or go to the Ethno Museum in one of the old mills. See the remains of ancient settlements and small stone houses, along with the first hydroelectric power station in Europe.

The waterfalls were lovely to see, and getting the boat to the town was great, the beach was definitely appreciated with the hot weather. In comparison to other trips we did this holiday, it would have been better organised - the boat schedule, location & pick up time was not explained very well, it was discussed off the bus in a busy park where it was hard to hear - and only became clear after people asked questions. It was later sent in the WhatsApp group chat everyone was added too, but if you don’t like relying on technology, you may want to speak to the guide for more clarity. The WhatsApp group was a good idea as plenty of people asked questions within it, it was nice to be able to reach the guide the whole day. Overall would definitely recommend the trip, it was a great day.

First: Travel companion Karla was great. A wonderful day. Nevertheless, it is a bit confusing at the beginning, since the meeting point was quite crowded and "the blue screen" could not be found. It was transfer by bus, information to read for yourself in WhatsApp group. You actually walk around all day after a short briefing. The locations wonderful. What I would like to say constructively: -Information on the history of Croatia on the 1 1/2 hour bus ride would be great -References to the Winnetou films -Recommendations for food at the locations -Multilingualism But in any case: wonderful impressions of the overwhelmingly beautiful landscape. That alone was worth it.

Great excursion to Krka with our guide Gabriella. A presentation of the park is made in the bus as well as the payment for the entrance. We have access to a WhatsApp group where Gabriella gives us important information and where we can ask all our questions. Once there, everything can be done independently, but there is the possibility of touring the old village with the guide. The tour ends in Skradin which we reach by boat, a beach is located next to the city. Thanks again to our guide who was perfect and who continued to give us recommendations for Split after the visit.
