Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet a driver at your Zagreb hotel or central meeting point, 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 hike that explores some of the Plitvice's 16 lakes, which are linked by waterfalls. See the lower and upper lakes on foot, then board a train for a brief, but scenic, tour. 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 at drop-off at your original departure point.

Overall the tour was an excellent choice. I booked it through Viator. Check in: I was messaged by Viator via email the day before to confirm a hotel pick up. Maja and Filip were there on time to pick me up at my hotel in the morning. Drive: It was a very comfortable van ride with good air conditioning. There was plenty of space as there were only two other customers. Maja provides phenomenal information throughout the entire drive. She is very knowledgeable. Filip has some very good input as well. Tour: We stopped in Rastock for a quick break and snack before moving on to Plitvice. Our time at Plitvice was phenomenal. Again, great guiding and narration by Maja and Filip. They both seemed very experienced and could answer even our most thought provoking questions. They were also phenomenal photographers. Overall, I highly recommend this tour. Maja and Filip are undoubtedly the best out there.

Absolutely amazing. To my surprise I ended up getting a bit of a bonus by solo trip due to Covid times. The park was incredible! There were people out and about but no lines and so easy to get through. It was a full day and we walked all 16 lakes. The pictures don’t lie, it is that gorgeous and so much bigger than I could have imagined. I had a fantastic trip!!

This was an amazing tour with a great guide, Maja. There were only two of us on the tour so we really got a personal experience. Maja is very knowledgeable about Croatia and kept us well informed and entertained all day. Added bonus, we miraculously had the lakes practically to ourselves even though it turned out to be a gorgeous day with great weather. Proof that travel in the winter has some definite advantages!

Not only is it worth visiting because of how amazing it is and the amount of beautiful pictures you can take of the amazing waterfalls, the tour itself was super nice! Luka was our guide and he made the experience a very nice one! He was always in a good mode, shared history details with us about Croatia, answered all our questions and was our own personal photographer hehehe For sure a trip I would do again in another season! Thanks Luka for a great trip!
