Returns to original departure point
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 Landscapes and Tour Guide
alma

Overall, an excellent activity with great organization. Appropriate times spent on both sites, Rastoke and Plitvice NP. What my husband and I saw exceeded our expectations. Bus was in excellent conditions, very clean and the most important thing was our the driver/tour guide Luca was superb. He was absolutely fabulous. His knowledge of each site was extensive. He was nice and polite, answered everyone's questions. He even volunteered to take our pictures. Best tour guide ever! - Alma from United States

Luca is excellent guide. He is very kind, patient and knowledgeable. We walked and saw 11 out of 16 lakes. The Fall season is gorgeous. Not many tourists. Croatia’s nature, history and food are amazing. Strongly recommend this tour.

Our guide, Luka, is very professional. He explained every lakes/waterfall to the group and kept checking that we are all doing fine for the walking. He sees photo spots and took pictures for us and they all turned out well. The trip was made super enjoyable by his hospitality!

Cozy and professionally tour. Luka the guide was the best guide ever. My son have his best day ever he said. A lot of interesting information about the county history before we arrived to first stop and good information about the course of the day. The park was amazing and we get all the information we needed. If you’re going to Zagreb, I will recommend this tour. It is all 10 hours worth!

The entire day was magnificent. We were jet-lagged but didn’t feel our fatigue while on this tour. Our guide, Luca was very helpful and even gave us a lot of very interesting information while traveling to the park. We learned so much about Croatia and Zagreb as well as the park. It was an amazing experience!

Plitvice was so beautiful. Wear comfortable walking shoes cause you are on hiking trails and boardwalks among the lakes and waterfalls. To be away from the city noises and relax in its serenity was wonderful. Our guide Petra was friendly and happy to engage us with her and extensive knowledge.

Our superb guide (Petra) provided us with a wealth of historical knowledge, not only about the lakes, but an abundance of questions were answered regarding Croatian Culture and Lifestyle. The picturesque views were breathtaking. Well worth the money and highly recommend.
