Full description

Escape the hustle and bustle of Split's city center on a full-day guided tour of one of Croatia’s most beautiful national parks at Krka. Glide along the Krka River's calm water on a boat cruise and make the most of your free time in the park once you arrive. Meet your guide at the Golden Gate of the Diocletian Palace for a transfer to Krka National Park. Alternatively, drive straight to the park in a private vehicle, depending on the option selected.

Upon arrival, go to the small town of Skradin to take a short boat cruise down the Krka River. Disembark at the Skradinski Buk waterfalls, and marvel at Europe’s largest travertine cascade system. Take in the fresh air and wild nature, or go to the Ethno Museum in one of the old mills. See the remains of ancient settlements and small stone houses, along with the first hydroelectric power station in Europe.

After the National Park, visit a sandy beach Skradin's sandy beach for a refreshing rest. Visit a local winery and taste local wines and olive oils, not included in the tour price.

You aren't allowed to actully swim in the waterfalls you get to swim on a beach after you have seen the waterfalls. The cost to get into the park is also fairly pricy at 140 kuna for an adult ticket and this isn't included in the price of the tour ticket. However that being said the bus ride there and back were pleasant and was a lot easier and got a lot closer then public busses. I cant comment on the tour guides because they weren't really guides more like babysitters making sure you got on the bus at the right time but let you do what you want once you get to the place which I prefer tbh. Overall rate this trip a 7/10 waterfalls were impressive but only took 2hrs to see max rest if time was sat on a pebble beach.

This trip was great. The journey there was very smooth and Maria the tour guide was great she gave us lots of interesting information along the way and was really helpful with any questions we had. The waterfall was stunning and the small town we went to was lovely. I also booked the olive oil and wine tasting which was a really lovely experience. All in all it was a lovely day trip, would recommend!

Very well organised trip. Our guide Dora gave us all the information we needed and we were able to explore the park in our own time. We spent a couple of hours exploring the park. There were queues for the boats back to Skradin so leave plenty of time. There is a nice beach to swim in the river and a fort to look round so worth spending an hour in Skradin.
