Meet a driver at your Zagreb hotel or central meeting point, then board a climate-controlled vehicle for the trip towards Lika, where the first stop of the day is the village of Rastoke, a historic community at the confluence of the Slunjčica and Korana Rivers. Walk through the village to see traditional watermills and old fashioned, riverside houses built from limestone and wood.

Continue to Plitvice Lakes National Park for a guided hike that explores some of the Plitvice's 16 lakes, which are linked by waterfalls. See the lower and upper lakes on foot, then board a train for a brief, but scenic, tour. The last Plitvice Lakes adventure is a boat cruise across Kozjak Lake, which is surrounded by thick evergreen forest (train and boat service are suspended from November through March, when tours of Plitvice Lakes National Park are on foot).

At the end of your day in Plitvice Lakes National Park, begin the return trip to Zagreb, where this tour concludes at drop-off at your original departure point.

Amazing Landscape and Tour Guide!
Karl_J

When you see the pictures of the Plitvice Lakes and Rastoke, you are captivated! But in person, you are blown away!! What a cool set of sights with amazing history and traditions. This trip with Guide Luka was not only fully an immersive natural experience but also a cultural exploration of the geopolitical history of the entire Balkan region. It seems like the tour wrapped up way too soon as we all could have likely kept talking for hours about the social and academic sides of Croatian history, geography, and the beautiful national park. This is not to be missed when in Croatia!

Brilliant day with Petra exploring the magic of Plitvice

Book it - don’t think twice! We had a brilliant experience with Petra. It’s covid times so our group was very small and Petra made the day super light, informative and fun. Plitvice is a truly magical place and with her expert knowledge I know we got to see the best parts. On the way she also gave us a ton of fascinating and useful info about Zagreb and Croatia in general. Needless to say covid protocols were flawless so we also felt very safe.

Upon arrival I was warmly welcomed by Luka, as he was precisely on time for my pick up !! The guide and tour was extremely good, very flexible (appreciate this!) and for that he deserves a special thanks. On our drive to Plitvice National Park in Croatia Luka was very knowledgeable in many topics including history, geography, politics & even religion. i recommend this tour to anyone who wants to learn a bit of Croatia’s culture and to see it’s beautiful natural sights !! Luka is such a warm personality and highly motivated guide (recommendable!). I truly enjoyed walking the four hour tour through the area. The scenery was beyond beautiful and it was a relieve to walk in such a beautiful quiet and peaceful environment. The atmosphere is so special that it really felt like home to me . All respect for Luka who does a great job there; a true sample of excellent tour guide! Many thanks again and I recommend Luka to everyone and greeting from Las Vegas !
