We are here in november and the weather was great. We expected snow but what we got was 65-70 degrees. This was completely worth while I think they should call it Waterfalls Park this is the most water falls I have ever seen. Easy level walking, i brought boots, no need bring walking shoes. It is a definite must!!!

Plitvice is a fabulous walk/ride to enjoy some of the most stunning scenery in Croatia (and Croatia offers many magnificent views). To ensure that crowds can get through efficiently, everything is well managed--you are not on your own, but who cares. Just wear really sensible shoes: we were there with a lot of ice/snow on the walks which no one seemed to care about clearing, so a walking stick would have been useful. But we were happy to be surrounded by such beauty, so that is a small complaint.

This is a must see national park in Croatia that has a unique collection of lakes, ponds, and waterfalls, big and small. Wonderfully clear richly colored water forms a dramatic backdrop to these sights. There is a well engineered series of walkways that allow easy movement about the wetlands. Touring the park involves a lot of walking that can be eased if you take the shuttle to the high point of the park and walk down to the low point.

Wow ... we just experienced Plitvice Lakes over two days -- one with misty rain and the next in brilliant sunlight -- and thoroughly enjoyed both experiences ... declaring it very much worth the drive to get there. Note: there are two entrances to the park, well-signposted, and we used entrance one on the first day, with the park's highest waterfalls, walkways along, around and sometimes over the falls of all sizes, then entrance two the second day, for a magnificent hike from the top of the watershed, down through the valley, following the water as it cascades over travertine limestone formations.
Our suggestions: 1. Take more than one day to fully appreciate the park. It is quite extensive, even within the central area of lakes/waterfalls, let alone the extensive system of hiking trails. This means you need to buy a two-day admission ticket, but it is very much worth the extra cost;
2. Use the ferries and shuttles, provided by the park as part of your admission, to get the most out of your visit. On day one, we enjoyed the big falls at the base near the entrance, then followed the well-marked trails up through the valley, finally taking the ferry across a large lake,to the central ferry transfer stop, then walked up to the tram station (#2) and took it back to station #1. There is a walk from #1 to the entrance but affords you great photo opps along the cliff tops. On day two, we entered entrance two, took the shuttle to station #4, then which takes you to the top of the valley, then walked down with the flowing water, eventually to the ferry, and up to our car at entrance two.
3. There is a charge to park at either entrance (by the hour), costing us 28 kuna each day.
4. We recommend this attraction at any time you can get there, but would suggest the off season time periods (March to early June and Sept. to late Oct.) if you can engineer that. Crowds were pretty large even in early October, so I bet high season would be quite crowded.
5. There are many places to eat inside the park, from snack bar style to full blown restaurant. Our favs were a grill near entrance one and the buffet restaurant at entrance two.
6. It is a wonderful site which everyone will totally enjoy, but it is a hike for even the fit. I would suggest good hiking shoes/boots, at the very least (good treads helps stabilize you on the walkways and wooden bridges), with the knowledge you have to get down and back up from the valley floor. The trams run at the rim level only.
Highly, totally recommended. Other than Dubrovnik, this was our top remembrance of our three trips to Croatia!

Very much enjoyed touring the Plitvice Lakes, including the boat trip which is part of the tour package. We walked for miles along the trails and saw many interesting flora and fauna. Great experience, but once is enough although trekkers return to them time and time again!!
