TOUR INFO

Plitvice Lakes are recognized as an astonishing natural monument for the benefit and enjoyment of the people now and for the generations to come. Today, 60 years after its establishment, Plitvice Park continues to provide inspiration for visitors becoming nowadays one of Croatia's biggest attractions. Thousands of people from all over the world visit the Park during summer. They come to find peace and relaxation just to experience something different as a getaway from the city.

The series of 16 bigger and a few smaller lakes, gradually lined up, separated by travertine barriers for which the period of the last ten thousand years was crucial, and which were ruled by ecological relations similar to those of today - suitable for travertine depositing and for the origin of the lakes - are the basic phenomenon of the National Park.

Enjoy the timeless beauty of an impressive 78 meters High waterfall, take a walk through green oasis or take a ride with a train or an electric boat, while breathing fresh air and discovering pure intact nature...

But, Plitvice Lakes won't be our first destination on this trip. First, we will see little charming millers village Rastoke, situated about 100 km from Zagreb, where the river Slunjcica over travertine rocks flows into river Korana, while through Rastoke creating many small lakes, rapids and waterfalls.

Rastoke is often called the lobby of Plitvice Lakes and therefore is often called small Plitvice Lakes. In Rastoke we will see the old water mills, traditional wooden houses and lovely nature.

River Slunjcica is abundant with wild trout which you can try in the local restaurants, freshly caught and prepared in many different ways.

Village Rastoke is true hidden paradise and a great overture to the majestic Plitvice Lakes.

BBC TRAVEL - Plitvice Lakes: Best for waterfalls
The Plitvice Lakes National Park is a place of such otherworldly beauty, you get the feeling that a CGI artist would be proud of it. Spread over a green valley in the Croatian interior, a series of waterfalls tumble down from one spectacular cascade to the next, pausing in the occasional turquoise lake before slipping down a sheer karst canyon and out of sight.

THE LONDON FREE PRESS
In Croatia's rugged interior, a stone's throw from the Bosnian border, hides one of Europe's most exotic hikes: Through Plitvice (PLEET-veet-seh) Lakes National Park. There's nothing like this lush valley of 16 terraced lakes, laced together by waterfalls and kilometres of pleasant plank walks. Years ago, after a dozen or so visits, I thought I really knew Europe. Then I discovered Plitvice, and realized you can never exhaust Europe of its surprises.

TRAVELERS' REVIEWS

Plitvice Lakes are grandiose and much more than I expected - it is the UNIQUE NATIONAL PARK! Plitvice are probably among the top 5 in the world. You can visit them through whole year - winter is special with crystallized threes. Spring brings increased water flow and autumn would give you those spectacular colors! Our guide Ivan from CroStory travel agency made the day brilliant. We have been on numerous tours through the years and he was the best we have ever had. He was friendly, interesting, easy going, funny and easy to work with.

The lakes are outstanding and don’t miss them! We really had an unforgettable experience that day. We truly enjoyed touring the lakes and learning some interesting parts of history and information along the way. At a way back we stopped in Rastoke, at a restaurant for lunch where we had guidance on what to order for a tasty Croatian meal! Visiting the mills was really cool to see, such a wonderful area that we would not have seen or experienced otherwise (if not with this tour). Toni was a fabulous tour guide from start to finish and gave many great recommendations for other things to see and do in Zagreb and we will back to Croatia again!
