What You Can Expect

Krka Waterfalls Day Trip from Split

Krka Tour

Board a minibus for Krka National Park, departing from a central location in Split. The 1-hour scenic drive takes you to the small town of Skradin, where you will embark on a short boat ride down the Krka River.

Arriving at Skradinski buk, you'll find the largest travertine cascade system in Europe, with 17 steps up to 1,312 feet (400 meters) wide. You'll have 5 hours here to explore independently; swim in the crystal-clear waters of the lower lake of the Krka Waterfalls — the only falls in the park where swimming is permitted — or see them from a different vantage point along the wooden walkway. You can follow the footpaths to an old water mill, stone houses, the Ethno Museums, restaurants, and more.

In the afternoon, meet up with your group for the return trip to central Split.

This tour isn't so much a tour, but more transfers which was perfect for us. We wanted to spend many hours exploring the park and found that this tour was the only one that would offer us this. We were picked up on time by a friendly tour guide who took us to purchase our tickets then get the boat over, which was lovely. The national park itself is beautiful, we spent an hour and a half in the water I would highly recommend taking water shoes, a waterproof camera, and something to keep your valuable in as you are not able to see the bags from the water. The water was beautiful and although it was a busy day we had a wonderful time. We then grabbed some food from the snack stalls then hiked around the park and took lots of beautiful pictures. I would highly recommend this tour if you would like the flexibility to explore this park at your own pace.

The trip was inexpensive and worth every penny. The tour was not overbearing and I appreciated the amount of time we had to spend in the park. The boat cruise was a nice addition as well, I would recommend sitting at the front of the boat during the cruise if possible and bringing our own food as there were not a lot of options at the park. Overall, it was a great experience and I would do it again.

Amazing place! Tour was perfect for us - we were taken by bus/ferry to the park, then picked up later so we were able to explore on our own. No official tour, but the park is wonderful to explore.

The map of the area is very vague. I would ask the tour guides to explain that the bus area is at the top of the walk around the
waterfalls, at the halfway point. We were not aware that we would walk back down the opposite side of the waterfall photo spots, only to have to rewalk the same first half again.
Croatia was experiencing a heat wave and it was torture to walk past the bottom swimming area and not have the extra time to get back into the water. We then had to walk the same first half of paths again, in the incredible heat, to get back to the buses.
Could not believe we walked the entire area 1.5 times when we would have preferred to walk only half of the path area.
I wish we had stayed in the water much longer in the beginning of the day, and enjoyed the area at the bottom of the falls much more.

The tour was very well organized and there was no question about what you had to do next. The guides were very professional and knowledgeable. The buses we took to Skradin were very nice. Definitely full but not overcrowded.

I was aware that this tour only covered the cost of the trip to and from Skradin and I would be responsible for paying for the tickets for Krka National Park. Many others on this tour seemed to not be aware of this. Once you arrive in Skradin, you purchase your tickets for the ferry and the park and then have to go stand in line for the ferry. The line is crazy long but went by fairly quickly. The ferry ride is short and gets your right into the park. Then you are left on your own at the park. We visited Split during the busy season so the park was crazy busy. There is an opportunity to swim but after looking at the water and the surrounding area I changed my mind and we just did a hike around the park, had lunch and coffee. You make your way to the bus stop at the other end of the park and the guides are waiting for you with their blue umbrellas. You board the bus and you are on your way back to Split. Again this was a very well organized tour. The park was just not for me. The waterfalls are gorgeous but you have several hours at the park to fill.

If you like thins well organized on your vacation and want to know exactly what the plan is, then definitely book this tour. The guides are with you each step of the way and are extremely helpful.

Organisation was exemplary! Instructions beforehand were clear and precise. The leader was personable and told us all we needed to know. Underlining the plan for the day on an information meant that there was no room for ambiguity. 'Look out for the blue umbrella' was a memorable mantra, and it was not difficult to spot at the rendezvous points and when we were following. The sight of a successsion of a waterfalls cascading down the hills was beautiful and splashing around in the turquoise water at the bottom was refreshing. Drinks and food were good and reasonably priced Going in a heatwave with 9,996 others detracted from the enjoyments. Nothing can be done about the weather, of course, but I suspect that a lower limit on the numbers might be needed in the long-term. 'Overcrowding' was the only reason, I did not give this five stars. I'd, nevertheless, recommend this trip and would warmly commend Viator.

Really enjoyed the waterfalls and well worth going to see. The tour guide was great, she was really helpful and friendly. The only thing was that the organisation of the tour was bad and could of been arranged better. Also no air con on the coach. Must visit when you are in Split.

The park was so beautiful and definitely to be recommended! However, essentially you and #39;re just paying for the bus there and back on this and #39;tour and #39; as the ferry is free and you have to pay for park entry additionally.
