Plitvice Lakes National Park

One of the principal tourist attractions of Croatia is just two hours away from the capital !!

It would be a big loss to miss it!

Be sure to take comfortable shoes and let’s visit a UNESCO heritage site.

Duration: 9 hours

Departure: on request

Languages: English, Spanish, Portuguese

Itinerary:

We leave at 8:30 am, or at another arranged time. On the way to Plitvice we will stop for a coffee in the beautiful village Rastoke known for its waterfalls and mills. After the break we continue to the National Park Plitvice.

The beauty of the National Park lies in its 16 crystalline lakes, inter-connected by a series of waterfalls, and set in deep woodland populated by deer, bears, wolves, boars and rare bird species.  The National Park covers a total area of 300 square kilometres, whilst the lakes join together over a distance of eight kilometres.

There’s also quite an altitude difference – the highest point is at 1,280m, the lowest at 380m – although the total height difference between the lakes themselves is only 135m. Veliki Slap, the highest waterfall of the Park is also the highest in Croatia, it is 78m tall.

Turquoise color of the lakes is not a Photoshop creation, it is a reality that you have a chance to see with your own ayes.

The tour takes about 3 to 4 hours. The lunch is basically a picnic unless you want to eat on the way to Zagreb, in that case there are many restaurants outside of the park area and on the way back. In the Park there are several buffets with outdoor wooden tables, so you can take your own food or buy it there. On the way back we can stop in an Open-air Homeland war museum near city of Karlovac, in a small town called Turanj. After a short stop we continue our trip back to Zagreb.

The trip from Plitvice to Zagreb is around 2 hours long.
