What to Expect
Travel from Split on this full-day (12-hour) tour to the most beautiful natural park in Europe, protected by UNESCO since 1979 as a World Natural Heritage Site. Plitvice Lakes National Park was founded in 1949, making it one of the oldest national parks in southeastern Europe.
In Plitvice National Park, nature has created 16 lakes and connected them by amazing travertine waterfalls. The park covers 29,685 hectares, with lakes making up 200 hectares and forest covering the majority of the area. During your visit you may encounter a variety of the species that have lived in the area since before the time of human arrival.
One of the main attractions is the 78-meter-high waterfall known as Veliki Slap, which is the highest waterfall in Croatia. In addition to the guided walks along wooden paths, you’ll enjoy a boat ride across the biggest lake, and also a short train ride.
Admire even more stunning scenery on a relaxing drive through the Lika region, taking in the mountain and forest landscapes.
