What to expect on Private Transfer from Zagreb to Zadar with Plitvice Lakes?

Visiting Plitvice Lakes

Your journey begins with meeting your driver at the given hotel or private accommodation address in Zagreb. After 1 hour of drive, We arrive at Rastoke, often referred to as “the Small Lakes of Plitvice”. After a short stop and time for coffee, we continue to Plitvice Lakes. Arriving in Plitvice lakes, your driver will be leaving you at the entrance of the park where you will be meeting your local guide (if you choose to have one), and your 3-4 hour adventure starts from there. Finally, you’ll have plenty of time for all activities before we continue our trip to Zadar. In general, this private transfer is available for booking year-round. From the months of March until the first snow of November the roads to the Plitvice Lakes are passable. However, winter, too, has its own charm. Drive to Zadar is on local roads seeing the charming Dalmatian countryside.

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!
