From Split: Krka National Park Day Trip with Boat Ride

1. From Split: Krka National Park Day Trip with Boat Ride

Make the most of your time in Croatia with a day trip to Krka National Park, one of the country’s most beautiful natural hotspots. See everything from waterfalls to medieval towns along the way. Meet your guide and driver in Split before heading out to Skradin. Catch a relaxing boat ride to Krka National Park from here, with guaranteed unforgettable vistas on the way. Once on the other side, benefit either from a roughly 1-hour complimentary guided tour of Krka, or the freedom to explore on your own. Either way, enjoy extra time after the optional guided tour to explore. Whether it’s of flowing waterfalls at Skrandinski Buk, historical flour mills, or wood trails, snap some photo opportunities of the unbelievable scenic views in front of you. If you are traveling during the high season (June-September), board a bus to the postcard-worthy town of Primošten. Enjoy a couple of hours in this medieval island town to swim, eat, sample wine tasters, or take a scenic stroll. Some of Croatia’s best-voted beaches are native to Primošten, and its vineyards are waiting to be enlisted as UNESCO World Heritage sites. During the low season, when the weather is too cold for swimming, visit the picturesque city of Šibenik, famous for its impressive historical fortresses and known as a gateway to the National Park Kornati. Finish off the day with a transfer back to Split in time for the early evening.
