Plitvice Lakes National Park Full-Day Tour from Zadar
$77.50
Overview
Discover the beauty of the Croatian countryside on this full-day Plitvice Lakes National Park tour from Zadar. Travel deep into the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Plitvice Lakes National Park, home to tranquil lakes and cascading waterfalls. During your 4-hour tour, admire fine views over the lakes and forest, and listen as a guide explains the diverse flora, fauna and native wildlife thriving in the lush landscape. Stroll along winding forest parks to sun-lit glades and take a sightseeing boat tour on Kozjak Lake. Then, return in comfort to Zadar.
What to Expect
Departing from Zadar in the morning, your day trip starts with the 1-hour-and-45-minute drive to Plitvice Lakes National Park.

Home to diverse vegetation and wildlife, including wild boar, wolves, and even bears, the park was granted World Heritage status in 1979. Located roughly halfway between Zagreb and Zadar, it's marked on old maps as the Devil’s Garden; the spectacular area consists of 16 interconnected terraced lakes, gushing over travertine rock covered in moss.

When you arrive at Plitvice, begin your 4-hour guided tour, visiting the Upper Lakes and Lower Lakes and enjoying the unspoiled environment of one of the most beautiful national parks in the world. Although you can’t swim in the protected lakes, your guide will show you the best places to explore and relax in this paradise of natural wonders. Besides walking and sightseeing, the tour includes an electric boat ride on Kozjak Lake.

On your way back, stop for lunch at a restaurant outside the park (own expense) before returning to Zadar, where your tour ends.

You can't rely on mother nature

Paradise or Hell, do not go in August.

The park is absolutely beautiful, like a cross between Jurassic park and the Bounty advert.......however, there are so many people there in August that you cannot move! Shuffling along and coming to constant standstills as you approach each waterful is torturous. Lot's of unsmiling faces...More

Good trip to a beautiful place

The tour was well organised, allowing us to maximise our time within the park whilst fitting in all the main waterfalls.
