Full description
Leave Zagreb and head to the Lika region. The first stop on the itinerary is the picturesque watermill village of Rastoke, located at the confluence of the Slunjčica and Korana rivers. Take a stroll through the town to admire the unique rural architecture. The tour continue on to Plitvice Lakes National Park. This is Croatia’s oldest and most visited national park, listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1979. For centuries, water has formed waterfalls and created 16 crystal-clear lakes in this area. Enjoy the outstanding natural beauty of the forest landscape and the lakes that are connected by a series of waterfalls. Board an electric boat to cross Lake Kozjak and learn more about karst formations and the abundant animal life in the park. Become one with nature, enjoy the clean fresh air and marvel at the breathtaking views that surround you.

    Amazing place and very well organized tour. The guide (Lukas, if I remember correctly the name) was very kind. Moreover he is really expert in the history of the places that we visited and the country, and he was very passionate in talking about these topics and answering to all our questions.

    I had accidently gone into the wrong tour van and was 5 minutes into the drive when the driver realised this and dropped me back. In the meantime, my tour company tried contacting me through WhatsApp call (since my phone was an international number) and was very helpful and supportive to make another round to pick us up again. So a big thumbs up for that. I would tell travellers to definitely provide a contactable number in case of mishaps. Overall the experience was truly amazing and well worth it. It's about an 8 mile trek depending on the route you take so be prepared with good walking shoes and appropriate clothing/water. The bus provided by the park was rather mismanaged but that has nothing to do with our tour company. All an all a fabulous experience!

    We had an AMAZING trip not to mention the weather cooperated with us it had been raining the days leading up to our tour. Mario and Maja were amazing and very friendly and Maja was a WEALTH OF KNOWLEDGE!!!! We almost had a private tour as we only had 2 other people on our tour. Plitvice Lakes was almost empty also with maybe 20 tourists all together that we saw while we were there including the 6 of us (4 tourists and 2 guides). Crazy!!!! Granted it was off season and the grounds were not green and lush but it wasn't short being gorgeous. The lakes and falls just kept getting more and more gorgeous at every turn. We were so lucky as we had front row at every site. Could not have asked for a more perfect day!!!!
