Make an early start with your pick-up from the meeting point or selected hotels in Split or Trogir. Sit back, enjoy three and a half-hour long pleasant drive through the hinterland of Dalmatia and the Lika Region until you reach this famous UNESCO World Heritage site. During the ride, our tour guide will provide you with some historical and interesting facts about the park and Croatia and you’ll pass by some truly stunning landscapes along the way.
Upon arrival in Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia’s top natural attraction and the absolute highlight of Croatia’s Adriatic hinterland, start your adventure on a hike through the fairy forest, following the guide on a 5-miles (8-km) trail to Gornja Jezera (Upper Lakes). Hiking through the park you’ll be constantly amazed by its turquoise lakes, the beauty of the rushing waterfalls, and the breathtaking views at the viewpoints. Plitvice Lakes National Park is made up of sixteen lakes that are connected by amazing travertine waterfalls and surrounded by picture-perfect woodlands. There are seven different routes and four hiking trails as well as boardwalks that go over the lakes and waterways.
After hiking, hop on a boat – it’s time for a magical boat ride to get the best possible view at the lakes as you cruise along the clear water. Leave the boat behind and walk for a while to enjoy views at Donja Jezera (Lower Lakes). And for the final touch, trade the boat for a seat on a panoramic train to soak up the final breathtaking view of this ultimate fairytale destination.
Before reaching Split, you will have one more stop along the way – a famous Croatian cuisine restaurant which is a must-see stop for everyone who travels from the north to the south of Croatia. There you will have an opportunity to taste some of the specialties of the Lika Region or take a short walk to stretch your legs.
After a whole day exploring the magical forests and lakes, you will return to Split or Trogir where you’ll be dropped off at your hotel or at the meeting point.
