What You Can Expect

Plitvice Lakes and Rastoke Full-Day Tour from Zagreb

Plitvice Lakes view

Meet a driver at your Zagreb hotel or at Nikola Šubić Zrinski Square, then board a climate-controlled vehicle for the trip towards Lika, where the first stop of the day is the village of Rastoke, a historic community at the confluence of the Slunjčica and Korana Rivers. Walk through the village to see traditional watermills and old fashioned, riverside houses built from limestone and wood.

Continue to Plitvice Lakes National Park for a guided, 5-mile (8.5-km) hike that explores some of the Plitvice's 16 lakes, which are linked by waterfalls. You’ll see the lower and upper lakes on foot, then board a train for a brief ride. The last Plitvice Lakes adventure is a boat cruise across Kozjak Lake, which is surrounded by thick evergreen forest (train and boat service are suspended from November through March, when tours of Plitvice Lakes National Park are on foot).

At the end of your day in Plitvice Lakes National Park, begin the return trip to Zagreb, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

I ended up being the only one on this tour and they didn't cancel, like most others would. Such a treat considering I only had a day or two in Croatia. My guide, Stjepan Klaric, was exceptional - super knowledgeable and willing to tailor the tour for my preferences. Can't recommend this tour enough - beautiful sights and great insights!

Plitvice Lakes is a must-see destination. The park with its many lakes, waterfalls, and hiking trails is breathtakingly beautiful. Wear warm, layered clothing and good hiking boots during the winter months as the trails can be snow-covered and slick. Our tour guide, Stjepan, was excellent: very professional and knowledgeable about Croatian history. He was a gracious host. Tour pick up and drop off was very convenient. Don't miss this tour if you are vacationing in Zagreb!

Excellent day trip with driver / guide Stjepan K to the village of Rastoke for amazing views and photo opp also a lovely old restaurant/pub for a coffee wished it were a bit later to have a beer!.

Given the time of year, the trekking around Plitvice lakes was fantastic with minimal crowds Stjepan was quite knowledgeable and pointed out various features, artifacts and bits of info. Very good pace for our group allowing for questions and photos.

Excellent day and excellent driver/guide plus a thoughtful group photo.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. Communication about where to be picked up was very clear. He allowed enough time to explain what we saw and helped us take pictures. If you want to take a day trip to Plitvice, this is the company to take you.

If you ask me how the heaven would look like, I would say Plitvice lakes would be close to how the heaven would looks like.
The colors of trees made it look more dreamy. No cameras can ever capture the beauty of this nature. I was so thankful they kept this place as natural as possible and admire all the people who made it possible.
The guide StephanI know I am spelling his name wrong was very passionate and knowledgeable guide that he made this experience unforgettable. This place is MAGNIFICENT!!

Worth every penny. Amazing tour guide Steve who was very knowledgeable and a great photographer. I feel he went above and beyond. Very impressed with the tour. The destination was amazing as well. The stop in Rastoke was beautiful, I wish we had 15 more minutes to explore as it was a shirt stop....but needed the daylight hours for Plitvice.
