Full description
Depart Zadar at 08:30, and journey towards Plitviče Lakes National Park. Drive through the hinterland of the picturesque Lika region for about 2.5 hours, and then enter the park for the start of your 2-hour guided tour. Marvel at the natural scenery of the Upper Lakes area, where 12 of the 16 lakes of Plitvice can be found. Cross Kozjak Lake by boat to experience the largest and deepest of the lakes from a different perspective. Belonging to the Upper Lakes group, Kozjak Lake is the result of 2 smaller lakes merging into one and is the only navigable lake in Plitviče Lakes National Park. Glide across the serene waters, where the travertine Stephanie`s island was named by the Crown Princess Stéphanie of Belgium (wife of Crown Prince Rudolf of Austria) after a visit in 1888.  Admire the idyllic scenery of the Lower Lakes region, characterized by small waterfalls, turquoise waters and surrounding greenery. Nearby lies the underground cave of Šupljara, where the conditions have given rise to an abundance of unusual cave fauna. Go to the Great Waterfall within the Lower Lakes and see the water cascade from a height of 78 meters. Then, enjoy 1.5 hours of free time to explore the park on your own and have lunch before the return journey to Zadar at 16:00.

    A beautiful National Park, with amazing crystal clear water and waterfalls. The ecosystem it provides is spectacular. It is one of natures beauties. It gets very busy and we visited in low season. Boardwalks get a bit crazy and pull off areas would be great. A must do if in Croatia.

    Beautiful, but avoid the high season.

    We loved the place, but the provider was a little disorganized. The tour is sold as with "hotel pick up", but they actually don't pick you up. They contacted me by e-mail to let me know the meeting point a couple of days before. I wonder if it had gone to spam box or if I hadn't checked my e-mail that day. Maybe I would've waited in my hotel and missed the tour. So it's better to pay attention to it.... The guides were nice and kind, but they didn't guided us with explanations or so. They were just leading the group and that's all we got. Regarding the park, it was beautiful, clean and with a nice structure, but packed with people in august (high season). I'm not sure they have control over the quantity of people inside the park daily, because it was really full and at some points we were waiting in line to be able to move on....

    Beautiful place well worth a visit

    Managed to see a lot in the 4 hrs available but no time to stop admire the view and take photographs as the group carried on without you. Found it a bit rushed considering the amazing views to be seen and photographed. Walk was strenuous at times so quite surprised it is not mentioned in your tour description as people who are not very will find it quite difficult.
