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.

An unforgettable day!

I was a solo traveler trying to catch some sights before attending an academic conference in Zagreb. I could not ask for a more perfect day! Do not miss this tour if you want to have an experience that you will remember for a lifetime. My guide (Renato) literally knew every corner of the trail so I could just enjoy the breathtaking scenery. We were a motley crew of 3 active solo travelers and a small family. Our guide managed all of our needs brilliantly, letting us move ahead faster/longer in certain spots as well as managing the needs of the family traveling with a young child. (Note: I was a solo traveler on this trip but have 2 kids ages 5 and 8 and would not recommend this tour for you unless you are willing to sit out the hike around the upper lakes - around 1 hour). It was 95 degrees out but the heat was manageable since most parts of the trail are shaded.

Include This In Your Visit If You Can

I am in a tour group that didn’t include this excursion, so I left the group for the day and did this tour on my own. The National Park is amazing. If you like scenic outdoors and getting a bit of exercise, this is a good option. The walk/hike is not very difficult, just long and uneven. The color of the water is incredible. Petra is attentive and knowledgeable. Mario was a skillful and courteous driver.

The lakes were absolutely stunning and our guide Matija was amazing! He was so knowledgeable about Plitivice lakes and shared lots of interesting information. Being a small group of 7 people was perfect as we could walk in a pace that was suitable for everyone and interact with each other. It was a great day trip

It was a wonderful trip and we had a very knowledgable driver who guided us through Rastoke and Plitvice. We've managed to see a lot and I took many beautiful photos. Weather was stunning so overall I'd recommend this trip if you enjoy nature. I guess it also stands and falls with the people joining you in the group. Most of my "colleagues" were nice and enjoyed the tour as much as I did while others took this as an opportunity to talk nonstop for more than 3 hours without taking a break so that they can enjoy what's around them ;-)

I really enjoyed this tour. The guide was great, and the lakes were absolutely stunning. I sort of wish we had skipped Rastoke to have more time in Plitvice, but I never felt particularly rushed and that seems to be a pretty standard stop on these tours. The group size was also perfect, and it was fun to meet some other travelers. This tour is definitely well worth it.

Tour guide Rinalti was excellent giving us local information on the trip to the park. He was an excellent guide and directed our group to the best positions for photos. He even took great photos of us with our cameras. The nation park is spectacular and it is worthwhile to book this trip for a once in a lifetime experience.
