Split to Plitvice Lakes drive

After we pick you up at one of our predefined locations with our luxury, air-
conditioned bus, we’ll begin our drive to Plitvice Lakes.

Plitvice Tour

We arrive at Plitvice Lakes around 11:30 am. You’ll want to start by taking a deep breath – this park is famed for its sixteen lakes that are interconnected by cascades and waterfalls – and you get to enjoy them all.

Upper Lakes

The tour begins by exploring the series of twelve interconnected lakes called the Upper Lakes (Gornja Jezera), which are intertwined by breathtaking waterfalls and deposited travertine barriers that transform due to the strength of the water. The lakes also change color depending on the mineral composition of the water and the microorganisms living in them, as well as the angle at which the sun hits their surface. This process ensures that the Plitvice Lakes are continually evolving.

We’ll cross footbridges and natural trails that twirl through the grandeur of the park, while the sounds of spouting waterfalls wrap around us. You get the chance to be ultimately one with nature. And you won’t be sorry.

We’ll continue making our way through the fascinating landscape of the park until we reach the boat that will transport us to the Lower Lakes (Donja Jezera).

Lower Lakes

The Lower Plitvice Lakes boasts four lakes which are rooted in the limestone canyon. This magical world of natural limestone dams, which are built by deposits of calcium carbonate, even as the flow of water erodes them, is an ideal blend of unique geological features you’ll rarely find elsewhere on earth.

The climax of Plitvice tour is undoubtedly the Great Waterfall (Veliki slap), which is also known as the tallest waterfall in Croatia.

The impressive panorama of rocky cliffs and lush forests, coupled with the roar of the waterfalls reveals the natural beauty and magnificence of Plitvice Lakes National Park.

Traditional cuisine

After you’ve absorbed all that the Plitvice Lakes environment has to offer, you’ll have the chance to savor in the local cuisine at one of the traditional family restaurants. And if you’re not hungry? Don’t fret – this part of the tour is optional.
