Full description

Visit Croatia's first national park, Plitvice Lakes National Park, one of the greatest natural wonders of Europe. Also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the park's unique geology makes for a popular destination for people from all around the world. Your tour starts at 7:00 AM and lasts for approximately 10 hours. Meet up in Split and be greeted by your guide and board your transportation for the day. While driving to the park, have the chance to enjoy the beautiful Croatian landscape.

Upon arrival to the park, you will be given a map of the park and told about the day's itinerary. Then, have 4 hours of free time to explore 16 beautiful lakes of crystal blue-green water and hypnotic cascades, tour 7 different routes, hike 4 different trails, or just lounge in the shade.

Plitvice's natural phenomenon causes it to constantly change through sedimentation of calcium carbonate. It creates special kinds of algae and moss, tufa, or travertine which are deposited to form the natural dams that separate the lakes.

See the changing travertine barriers, curtains, stalactites, channels, and cascades being built and the existing ones. Besides the lakes, there are some interesting caves in which remains of prehistoric settlements have been found. After touring you can also catch a boat or train ride.

At around 5:00 PM you will head back to Split and arrive around 8:00 PM

Really great day at Plitvice Lakes national park organised by Booker Transfer & Tours. We visited in October, so the park was in beautiful autumnal colours. Excellent organisation from the moment of booking right through. The driver Mario was great and our guide Biljana was absolutely superb. I would highly recommend this trip, the walk through stunning scenery is incredible, coupled with the waterfalls and boat ride across the lakes, is a must when in Croatia.

The destination itself is well worth the trip, but what really made this tour special was our local guide Biljana, and the driver George. Biljana was such an amazing tour guide, you could tell that she really knew what she was talking about and her passion for the park. George was such a great guy, he would tell us stories through the long trip to and from the park, and would constantly make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed during the long drive. I would definitely recommend this tour to whoever, especially with Biljana and George!
