What to expect

Granted UNESCO World Heritage status in 1979, Plitvice is located approximately halfway between Zagreb and Zadar. Marked on old maps as the “Devil’s Garden,” the spectacular area consists of 16 interconnected terraced lakes, gushing over travertine rock covered in moss.

Departing from Zadar at 8:15am, you will drive for about an hour and 45 minutes before reaching Plitvice National Park, home to diverse flora and fauna including wild boar, wolves, and even bears.

Once at the National Park, you will start your 4-hour guided tour which includes visiting Upper and Lower lakes and enjoying the unspoiled nature of one of the most impressive national parks in the world. Although you can’t swim in the protected lakes, your guide will show you the best places to explore and relax in this magnificent paradise of natural wonders.

Besides walking, sightseeing includes an electric boat ride on Kozjak Lake. On your way back, eat delicious lunch at a restaurant outside the National Park (optional). Return to Zadar at around 6:00pm.
