Visiting Plitvice Lakes

Your journey begins with meeting your driver at the given hotel or private accommodation address. The distance between Split, Plitvice Lakes and Zagreb is 450 km. Indeed, Plitvice are a must-do when traveling from Split to Zagreb. The park was established in 1949 and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979. The national park consists of 16 lakes, which are stepwise and descend into one another. Don’t miss seeing “Veliki Slap”, the highest waterfall in the park. After time in Plitvice, we continue to Rastoke village often referred to as “the Small Lakes of Plitvice”. Finally, you’ll have plenty of time for coffee and lunch. This tour is available for booking year-round.

The Upper lakes (Gornja Jezera)

Meet your local guide in the park (if you choose to have one) and start with a pleasant train ride around the Upper Lakes. Your licensed guide is a professional with more than 10 years of experience. Together with our guide in the lead, we start with our tour by exploring the series of twelve interconnected lakes called the Upper Lakes (Gornja Jezera). The lakes also change color depending on the mineral composition of the water and the microorganisms living in them. This process ensures that the Plitvice Lakes are continually evolving. We’ll continue making our way through the fascinating landscape of the park until we reach the boat that will transport us to the Lower Lakes (Donja Jezera).

Lower Lakes (Donja Jezera)

The Lower Plitvice Lakes system is formed in the canyon that is constructed of permeable limestone. The highest rocks in the canyon are about 40 meters. The travertine cascade formed between Kaluđerovac and Novakovica brod lake is the visitors’ path leading down from the NP Entrance 1 towards the Veliki Slap waterfall and then further on around the Lower Lakes upstream in the direction of the Kozjak Lake. The climax of the Plitvice tour is undoubtedly the Great Waterfall (Veliki Slap), which is also known as the tallest waterfall in Croatia.

Veliki Slap, The Great Waterfall

Finally, the highest waterfall in the Plitvice National Park is Veliki Slap – the Great Waterfall. Witness the magnificence of the 78 meters situated at the very end of the National Park. The place where the river Plitvice thunders, in a single drop in the river Korana. The waterfall gets completely frozen in the winter forming a lovely giant ice sculpture – a must-see!
