Overview
Nature has created a masterpiece at Plitvice, where 16 lakes sculpted from dolomite and limestone cascade into one another. Explore these wonders, in stunning blues and greens, and the 78-m waterfall whose waters join the lakes to form the Korana River.
What to Expect
Plitvice Lakes National Park is the most beautiful national park in Croatia and the oldest in southeastern Europe, having been established in 1949. Its 296.85 km2 of unique geology and natural splendor have made it a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979.

Over the course of millennia, nature has sculpted 16 lakes out of the limestone and dolomite base. Crystal-clear water cascades over travertine barriers from one to the next starting at the upper lakes in the southern part of the park. At the northern end, water from the Plitvice River plunges 78 meters down the Great Waterfall and joins the waters leaving the lakes to form the Korana River.

You can take a boat or train to ride around the park and admire the panoramic views from many vantage points. The colors of the lake water change — now green, azure or blue — depending on the quantity of minerals or organisms and the angle of sunlight. About 8 km of pathways and wooden walking trails are also accessible to visitors.

The tour departs at 07:00. It includes a short break on the way to the park, an escorted walking tour, lunch, and a break on the way back. We return around 19:00.
