Full description

Discover the spectacular scenery Plitvice Lakes National Park on a day tour from Split. Admire the beautiful lakes, canyons, and waterfalls of one of the most popular natural landmarks of Croatia, with a guided walk through the park and boat ride on the Lower Lakes.

Depart Split in an air-conditioned bus for a scenic ride to the Plitvice Lakes. Take in the beauty of 16 terraced lakes laced together by waterfalls and walking paths. Learn about the lakes from your guide. Cross the 12 interconnecting lakes at the Upper Lakes (Gornja Jezera) and gaze in awe at the changing color of the water, depending on the mineral composition, microorganisms that live in them and angle at which the sun hits the surface. Stroll across wooden bridges and paths that cross the cascades. Next, journey to the Lower Lakes (Donja Jezera) by boat and enter a fairytale world of natural limestone dams. Take in the views of the Great Waterfall (Veliki Slap) and the surrounding forest.

Elena is a fantastic guide, she gave us lots of really interesting information about Split and Croatia. There was a problem with the bus in the morning meaning we left late but she made sure we didn’t lose anytime at the Lakes and still made it back to Split at a good time. Definitely recommend the tour but be prepared for colder/wet weather, it’s a totally different climate to Split and some of the group were unprepared

The constant communication from yourselves was superb. We were left in doubt as to where we should meet and what to bring etc. The day was long but well worth it. PETA gave us so much interesting information. We learned a lot about the history of Croatia. We had a lovely day. Not sure though if it was necessary to stop at the restaurant on the way home. Our opinion only of course.

Our tour guide was Elena and she was funny, lovely and very knowledgeable! Also, she faced a series of misfortunes that day (logistically and Plivitce related due to some heavy rains prior to the day of our visit) and she did not only handled everything amazingly but she was also very honest and kept us informed about what was going on. Totally recommend!
