A day trip from Zagreb to the most popular national park in Croatia and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with an optional Zagreb city tour earlier in the morning. Departure is at 11 am from the tourist bus stop in Palmotićeva Street 2, a minute’s walk from the main square.

Earlier in the morning, from 9 am, there is an optional 1.5-hour city tour. It's a perfect combination to tick-off all the Zagreb must-sees and visit the Lakes on the same day. There is a 10€ / 75 HRK extra charge for the city tour that finishes right at the spot from where the Lakes day trip starts. After a 2.5-hour bus drive, you arrive at Plitvice Lakes. Although an entrance ticket is not included in the price, your skip the line entrance is a major perk of this tour!

In the next 3 to 4 hours, you walk around the crystal clear Lower Lakes, take the train ride to the great waterfall and go for a boat ride across the Big Lake. The late afternoon drive back to Zagreb ends at the same spot from which the day trip started, in Palmoticeva Street, one minute from the main square.

If you prefer a small group day trip, we would be happy to be your hosts in that arrangement as well.

Starting at 8.30 am in Zagreb, this 12-hour day tour will take you to the capital of Slovenia, the city of Ljubljana, and the most popular Slovenian resort – Lake Bled.

Ljubljana is Slovenia's capital and the country's largest city, as well as one of Europe's greenest and most liveable capitals. In Ljubljana, you will go on a guided tour to learn more about the city and its history, and to experience the best of it during your 3-hour stay.

After departing from Ljubljana, we will continue our journey to the Bled Island, where you will explore the stunning, iconic castle, both from the inside and out. Bled is a delightfully picturesque place with its bluish-green lake, exquisite islet church, a majestic, medieval castle clinging to a rocky cliff and some of the highest peaks of the Julian Alps and the Karavanke as backdrops. You’ll also get a chance to enjoy some free time before heading back to Zagreb.

Starting at 8.30 am in Zagreb, this 11-hour day tour will take you to the capital of Slovenia, the city of Ljubljana, and the most captivating cave in the world and the largest show cave in Europe – Postojna Cave.

Ljubljana is Slovenia's capital and the country's largest city, as well as one of Europe's greenest and most liveable capitals. In Ljubljana, you will go on a guided tour to learn more about the city and its history, and to experience the best of it during your 3-hour stay.

From Ljubljana, we'll proceed to the Karst region to discover Predjama Castle and the underground world of Postojna Cave, the most popular cave in the world. Predjama Castle is one of Europe's most impressive and magnificent castles. It teaches a clear lesson: if you want to build an impregnable fortification, put it in the gaping mouth of a cavern halfway up a 123m cliff.

A guided tour of Postojna Cave consists of an electrical train ride, followed by a walk through beautiful passages and chambers with spectacular drop stones, pillars, limestone curtains, and other unforgettable formations.

There must be a reason why Plitvice Lakes is the most popular Croatian National Park and a UNESCO Site - and it's not hard to decipher! Breathtaking and pristine nature, stunning waterfalls and crystal clear lakes will delight anyone who decides to check out this Croatian must-see.

This day trip starts and finishes in the city of Zagreb, with a roughly 2-hour drive to the park. On your way there, you will stop in the picturesque watermill village of Rastoke, sitting on top of a maze of streams and waterfalls, where you'll explore the old watermills and authentic houses connected with numerous waterfalls and small lakes.

After stopping at Rastoke, we continue our journey to Plitvice Lakes, where your guide helps you to buy tickets and skip the line. In the next 5-6 hours, you will enjoy the lakes during a nice moderate walk and a boat trip. You'll, of course, have some spare time and a lunch break. Feel free to take your own food or buy your lunch in one of the park restaurants.

If you are looking for a big group day trip that will make your day trip less expensive, we would be happy to be your hosts in that arrangement as well.
