Plitvice Lakes and Rastoke Full-Day Tour from Zagreb
Plitvice Lakes National Park is one of Croatia’s most visited attractions, drawing more than 1 million visitors annually. Because of its popularity, it can be a challenge for travelers to navigate crowds and make the most of their time spent there. With this tour, save time and energy by letting let a guide and driver take care of logistics. You’ll pack in a village visit and hike plus more in one full day.
What to Expect
Meet your driver at your hotel in Zagreb or Nikola Šubić Zrinski Square. Hop aboard your tour vehicle and begin the journey to Plitvice Lakes National Park.

Make your first stop in the historic village of Rastoke, situated at the confluence of the Slunjčica and Korana rivers. Take a short walk through the village, stopping at traditional water mills and limestone riverside houses.

Continue to Plitvice. Once you arrive, take a guided 5-mile (8.5-kilometer) hike to explore some of the park’s lakes and waterfalls, including the Lower and Upper Lakes. If you’re traveling between April and October, board a train for a short ride and then take a boat cruise on Kozjak Lake.

Get back in your tour vehicle for the return journey to Zagreb, and finish the day with a drop-off at your departure point.

Amazing day out with an excellent guide

Arranged through hotel with pick up just near our hotel in Zagreb. The guide (steve) very friendly and knowledgeable and made the day out a pleasure. Small group just 6, and the trip to Rastock on the way to the lakes was a great option.

Absolutely Stunning!!

This is definitely a must for any visit to Zagreb. The tour is 10 hours door-to-door. The bus ride is approximately 2 1/2 hours but stops along the way makes it tolerable. The town of Rastoke is very charming with water and waterfalls everywhere. The...More

Interesting and informative guide

Karlo was excellent in running all aspects to the trip perfectly on time, and his wide breadth of knowledge about Croatian history and culture, as well as his recommendations for all things Zagreb made the long bus rides almost as good as the lakes themselves....More

I wouldn't recommend doing this the day you have to fly - our tour hit traffic on the way back and didn't get into Zagreb until 8pm (20 hrs). I think their estimated time back to Zagred is around 6pm (18 hrs), so you would... More

I don't think this company, Petros, does those transfer tours. I never saw any transfers to Trogir, but there are many that will get you to nearby Split. Look at Portal Day Tours, Wanderer Travel, etc on here
