Traveling by public bus or airplane is from point A to point B and you can miss out on so many things on the way.

Plitvice Lakes National Park is one of the oldest national parks in Southeast Europe and the largest national park in Croatia.
In 1979, Plitvice Lakes National Park was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list.

Within the boundaries of this heavily forested national park, 16 crystalline lakes tumble into each other via a series of waterfalls and cascades. The mineral-rich waters carve through the rock, depositing tufa in continually changing formations. Clouds of butterflies drift above the 18km of wooden footbridges and pathways which snake around the edges and under and across the rumbling water.

Don't miss out on them on your way to the coast!

A Recent Review of this tour

Rafaella is a gem She met us in Zagreb for a walking tour and then took us to Split utilizing a driver for that portion of the guided tours. She was pleasant, helpful and accommodating at all times. Unfortunately she couldn't control the weather, but always had a smile on our face. Would gladly use her again.
