Plitvice Lakes excursion – departure every day from May 1st – 29th Sept
The excursion provider says: Our comfortable, air-conditioned mini-van or bus will pick you up at the pre-arranged location. Accompanied by our professional, licensed English-speaking local guide, our first stop – about an hour up the coast – is a dramatic viewpoint above the charming village of Skradin, on the Krka River where it meets the sea and in the distance, surrounded by Krka National Park.
After our short stop, we’ll head up through the countryside towards a unique jewel – the Plitvices Lake.
The unity and harmony of the 16 lakes here and their rare natural and cultural value is not only famous throughout Croatia, but also worldwide; earning this remarkable national park a coveted place on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage sites. Arriving at Plitvice, we’ll walk through these ancient woodlands led by our experienced guide. The path takes you across Gornja Jezera (Upper Lakes), and then it’s time for a magical boat ride within the sound of the waterfalls to Donja Jezera (Lower Lakes).
Wherever you are in Pltivice it’s easy to see why its travertine marble formations are such an extraordinary natural phenomenon. The barriers, sills and other forms created in these lakes, karst rivers and streams is still an ongoing process that shapes the wonderful landscapes that make your walk through the park so enjoyable. It’s these same travertine formations that have and are still creating the numerous magnificent waterfalls here. Over time, the water changes its course, leaving some barriers dry as it deposits new layers elsewhere. This constant evolution means the Plitvice Lakes never look the same. The best way to actually see this happening is when you are standing in front of the Great falls, 78 meters high, The roaring thunder of the water as it hits the ground is unforgettable!
Our journey ends with a panoramic train ride. Afterward, we suggest walking to a nearby local tavern for an optional lunch to try some national specialties or pack a picnic and find a spot in the shade to savor the view. After a memorable day in such spectacular forests and lakes we will return home, still excited and full of lasting impressions—make sure your camera has extra batteries!
Please note: You may be joined by other guests on this excursion – if you would prefer your own private excursion, just ask! It is no problem to organize this for you.
