Departure from Zagreb for Plitvice Lakes in the company of our guide in the early morning hours.
After about an hour and a half drive, we’ll arrive at Rastoke, a small millers’ village also called ‘The Little Plitvice’. Rastoke is situated at the Slunjčica River estuary.
Over travertine barriers, Slunjčica dissolves into Korana River creating picturesque waterfalls and small lakes. Here, the most beautiful waterfalls are Vilina kosa, Buk i Hrvoje. The village is also famous for its home-made bread and freshly caught trout. Sightseeing.
After sightseeing, we suggest lunch at some of the restaurants smartly fitted in the nature. After a short break, we’ll continue our drive to Plitvice Lakes National Park, a unique natural phenomenon listed on the UNESCO’s world heritage list.
Plitvice Lakes is the oldest, biggest and most visited national park in Croatia. It is world famous for its lakes arranged in cascades. Currently, 16 lakes can be seen from the surface. The lakes are all interconnected and follow the water flow. They are renowned for their distinctive colors, ranging from azure to green, grey or blue. The colors change constantly depending on the quantity of minerals or organisms in the water and the angle of sunlight. Through different climatic influences and the large difference in elevation within the protected area, a multifaceted flora and fauna has been created. The national park area is also home to many endemic species. Those species that prevailed at the lakes before the arrival of man still exist. We’ll see the Upper and the Lower Lakes, enjoy the boat ride and the shuttle bus ride called ‘Panoramic train’ which will take us back at the entrance number 1 or 2.
The end of the trip. Return to Zagreb in the late afternoon hours.
