Spend a full day exploring Plitvice Lakes National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. See the terraced lakes and waterfalls of crystal clear water flowing through a vast and lush environment.
What to Expect
Enjoy a day on a full-day excursion to Plitvice Lakes National Park, where you will visit Croatia's largest national park. After leaving from Zagreb the road then takes you through the countryside toward a unique jewel - the Plitvice Lakes. The unity and harmony of the 16 lakes and their rare natural and cultural value is not only famous on the local level, but also worldwide, and the lakes are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Upon arriving in Plitvice Lakes National Park, your tour starts on foot through the woods, led by your guide. The path takes you across Gornja Jezera, which are the upper lakes, and then you continue by boat, accompanied by the sound of the waterfalls, to Donja Jezera, the lower lakes.
The travertine builds barriers, sills, and other forms in karst rivers and streams. Tavertine are rock deposits from mineral springs that build barriers, sills, and other forms in karst rivers and streams, leading to the creation of magnificent waterfalls. Over the time, the water changes its course, leaving some barriers dry but depositing new tufa. This phenomenon makes the Plitvice Lakes look different all the time, as they are constantly changing from one day to the next.
You will know when you are approaching the Great Falls, 256-feet (78 meters) high, when you hear the roaring thunder of the water hitting the ground. Afterward, the road will take you to Outlook Cave, which is known from the scene in Karl May’s movie, Treasure of Silver Lake, a story about a famous Winnetou. Your journey ends with a panoramic train ride. After a whole day exploring the magical forests and lakes, you will return to Zagreb.
