Start with your pickup from the meeting point or selected hotels in Split or Trogir, then begin the 155-mile (250-km) trip to Plitvice Lakes National Park: your guide will share some background about the park and Croatia along the way, and you’ll have scenic views of the countryside throughout the trip.
Upon arrival in Plitvice Lakes National Park, stretch your legs on a hike through the forest, following the guide on a 2.5-mile (4-km) trail to the park’s upper lakes. Hop in a boat at the lakes for the ride to the lower lakes, or Donja Jezera, a picture-perfect cluster surrounded by thick trees.
The national park is the perfect place to see geology in action, as the rivers and streams that flow through the Plitvice Lakes continue to shape the karst formations and rock landscape visible during your tour. Trade the boat for a seat on a panoramic train for another perspective on the terrain, then enjoy some free time for lunch—meals are not included, but the guide can help you find the perfect place to eat.
This 12-hour tour concludes with a return trip to Trogir or Split with drop-off at your hotel.
