Overview

Departure at 08:30 from your accommodation in Zagreb, driving direction Karlovac – city on 4 rivers: Korana , Mreznica, Kupa and Dobra.
It is one of the rare cities we know the exact foundation day: July 13th 1579. The city was founded as a large fortress for protection against the Otomans. Around 09:15am arriving to city of Turanj – known for its Open-Air Croatian Homeland War Museum, (optional visit).

Further on driving to next stop: City of Slunj and its idyllic water mill village of Rastoke, which has similar natural phenomena occurring as do the Plitvice Lakes, thus it is often referred to as “the Small Lakes of Plitvice”. You will see the unique structure of well-preserved wooden watermills on the waterfalls of river Slunjcica. Approximately at 11:30am we will be arriving Plitvice Lakes National park, world’s natural heritage that is on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1979. Inside the park, you will walk along the majestic string of sixteen cascaded lakes connected with beautiful waterfalls. Your walk of the National Park will take approximately 3 hours and will include hiking along both upper and lower lakes, a boat ride over the big lake and a train ride through park area at the end.

The Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia’s most popular tourist attraction is located roughly halfway between capital city Zagreb and Zadar on the coast, the lakes are a definite must-see in Croatia. The beauty of the National Park lies in its sixteen lakes, inter-connected by a series of waterfalls, and set in deep woodland populated by deer, bears, wolves, boars and rare bird species. The National Park covers a total area of 300 square kilometers, whilst the lakes join together over a distance of eight kilometers. There’s also quite an altitude difference – the highest point is at 1,280m, the lowest at 380m – although the total height difference between the lakes themselves is only 135m (Veliki Slap, the largest waterfall, is 70m tall). About 15:00pm you will meet again your driver – guide for return back to Zagreb, which will take about 2 hours.
