Explore heart-stoppingly beautiful Plitvice Lakes National Park on this one day long tour from Split and Trogir. Located at the top of Croatia’s Adriatic region, in the Dinaric Alps, this UNESCO-listed site is one of the must-see sights in the area. The unanticipated beauty of this National Park lies in its stunning turquoise colored lakes, sixteen of them to be exact, which are harmoniously inter-connected by a chain of waterfalls and surrounded by serene deep-green forests. The sereneness of the nature and the roaring thunder of water falling from one lake to another make you wonder if you’ve accidentally fallen into some fantasy land. Perfect day-trip destination if you want to take in the most of your holiday in Croatia.
Get picked up at your hotel or meet the group at the centrally located meeting point in Split or Trogir to begin this thrilling one day tour out of the city. A ride in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle and passing by some truly stunning landscapes allow you to relax and day-dream for a while as you learn about history and the biological importance of the biggest and oldest Croatian National Park.
After arriving in Plitvice Lakes National Park, stretch your legs and begin exploring the park with a local guide. Strikingly beautiful green forest welcomes you with its diversity while wooden trails for visitors wait for you to explore them. The route covers approximately 1.5 miles so make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes. Some parts of the trail are pretty steep, but even the most precipitous parts of the park are worth the effort of going up and down the forest trails, so, at the end of the day, you won’t mind the steepness at all. Tall trees, hundreds of shades of green around you, the sound of birds humming above your head, subtle indications of wild life somewhere not too far away from you, an overwhelming sensation of being somewhere far away from the modern soul-shaking life that we all live today. However, this is not the real reason to come here.
Lakes! Turquoise and emerald green, the sound of water crushing to the ground – a perfect balance between Nature’s tranquility which will calm your soul and dramatic jaw-dropping views. That’s why you come here! Hop on an electric boat to get the best possible view at the lakes. Make sure you remember to bring your camera with you because you wouldn’t want to miss all the unique photo opportunities while you drive from Gornja Jezera (Upper Lakes) to Donja Jezera (Lower Lakes).
Leave the boat behind and walk for a while more as you enjoy some hair-rising views at the higher lakes. These are truly unforgettable! Later on, catch a final spellbinding panoramic view at the lakes and the surrounding forest as you enjoy a short train ride. Finish the tour by getting back on the bus and heading towards Split or Trogir where you’ll be dropped off at your hotel or at the meeting point.
