Day Tour Plitvice Lakes Small Group Day Trip

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.

More about this tour

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 at 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 will help you buy the 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.

The unity and harmony of the 16 lakes, as well as their immense natural and cultural value, makes them famous not only throughout Croatia but also worldwide; earning this remarkable national park a coveted place on the UNESCO's list of World Heritage sites. Upon arriving at Plitvice, you'll walk through these ancient woodlands. The path will first take us across Gornja Jezera (Upper Lakes), a system of 12 lakes separated by travertine barriers. Wherever you are in Plitvice 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 are still an ongoing process which is shaping the wonderful landscape that will make your walk through the park so thoroughly 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 gives the Plitvice Lakes their ever-changing quality.

The best way to actually see this happening is when you are standing in front of the Big Waterfall, 78 meters high. The thunderous roaring of the water as it hits the ground is an unforgettable sensation!
