Fewer than two hours by road from Croatia’s capital, Plitvice Lakes National Park makes an idyllic back-to-nature escape, with acres upon acres of pristine forests, tumbling waterfalls, and blue-green lakes to explore. Here’s how you can visit the stunning national park from Zagreb.

Group Tours
Group tours to Plitvice Lakes from Zagreb squeeze in the scenic highlights of this UNESCO World Heritage Site into one good-value package. Most group tours make a pit stop at Rastoke, a historic town set at the confluence of the Slunjcica and Korana Rivers, known for its heritage houses, traditional mills, and natural beauty. From there, group tours continue to the park itself, where participants embark on guided hikes of the Lower Lakes (Donja Jezera) and Upper Lakes (Gornja Jezera), and, on some tours, train rides and electric boat cruises. 

Private Tours
With private Plitvice Lakes tours from Zagreb, you can customize the itinerary based on your personal preferences and fitness levels. You might want to make stops at the historic city of Karlovac or at Rastoke, before venturing into the park where you can hit the highlights that interest you most with your very own dedicated tour guide. 

Things to Know 
  • The Plitvice Lakes are 80 miles (130 kilometers) from Zagreb. 
  • Day tours from Zagreb to Plitvice Lakes typically last eight to 11 hours. 
  • Most groups and private tours include free time for lunch, which you can purchase at select sites. Alternatively, bring along a packed lunch.
