HIGHLIGHTS

Explore this UNESCO-listed national park with a local guide. Walk along forest trails and be impressed by breathtaking lakeside views. Cruise across the clear waters of one of the lower lakes in an electric boat. Absorb the scenic surroundings with a panoramic bus or electric train tour. Taste great local food served up in numerous restaurants in the park’s vicinity.

ITINERARY

Located in mountainous Lika region, half-way between the coast and the capital Zagreb, Plitvice Lakes National Park is one of the most visited sites in Croatia.

The unity and harmony of 16 lakes and their rare natural and cultural value is not only a well-known spot throughout Croatia, but equally worldwide; earning this remarkable national park a deserved place on  UNESCO’s list of World Heritage sites.

Upon arrival to Plitvice, you’ll walk through ancient woodlands. The path takes you first across  Gornja Jezera (Upper Lakes), a system of 12 lakes separated by travertine barriers. Then it’s time for a peaceful boat ride towards the second area called  Donja Jezera (Lower Lakes), placed in a limestone canyon.

READ MORE

Wherever you are in Plitvice it’s easy to see why its travertine marble formations are such an extraordinary natural phenomenon. The barriers, sills and other forms created in these lakes, karst rivers and streams are still an ongoing process that shapes the wonderful landscapes that make your walk through the park so enjoyable. It’s these same travertine formations that have and are still creating the  numerous magnificent waterfalls here. Over time, the water changes its course, leaving some barriers dry as it deposits new layers elsewhere. This constant evolution makes the Plitvice Lakes  never look the same.  The best way to actually see this happening is when you are standing in front of the Big Waterfall, 78 meters high.

Absolutely Amazing!

Jelena is the epitome of excellence! She is very personable, knowledgeable and beyond professional. Her English is impeccable and she is extremely warm, inviting and offers and unforgettable tour of Split. She is passionate about sharing the love of her country, and adds personal touches about its history. She spent the entire day with us and by the end of the tour, it felt as if we were lifelong friends. We began our tour with her meeting us at our cruise ship and we ended with a drink in a local establishment. Here she recommended the names of local dishes for us to try during our visit. I, undoubtedly, recommend booking a tour with Jelena as you will not be disappointed. We are looking forward to our next visit to Split with our children, and will be booking another tour with Jelena.

Wow, Jelena - awesome job!

I’ve worked with personal guides in quite a few cities in Europe and South America, and Jelena has all the right qualities you want in a guide – personable, smart, funny, poised, flexible, and very knowledgeable about recent and ancient history of Croatia/Yugoslavia, local culture, arts, local cuisine, and architecture. On the first day we had a great walking tour of old town Split, including the palace, and visited a unique museum, and finally drove to Trogir to see the small but ancient and well-preserved town, including the fort and Riva. Jelena shared interesting stories dating from the 4th century Roman civilization, and including communist rule and more recent events. She shared personal anecdotes to make the tour memorable, and provided a nice balance of historical information without overwhelming with detail. The second day island tour that Jelena arranged was also really fun, and included great scenery, sightseeing in quaint harbor towns, and world-class beaches…

Private Tour & On The Ground Assistance

I came to Split with a large group (20), and Jelena provided a fantastic amount of help before, during and after our trip with recommendations, reservations, and organizational support. During our visit, she organised a fantastic private tour, and organised some great experiences and visits. She always responded super-quickly, and was by far one of the most professional travel hosts I’ve worked with.
