What to expect
  • Meet a private guide at your Zagreb hotel for a 9am departure, then travel out of the city and into the mountainous Lika region. It’s a two-hour drive from Zagreb to the Plitvice Lakes, but you can stretch your legs along the way in the village of Rastoke. Stroll through the town, check out the wooden watermills that line the river, and pause for a coffee break in a Rastoke café. Upon arrival at Plitvice Lakes National Park, the guide will design the perfect day of exploring for your group’s interests and fitness levels. There are walkways and hiking trails that wind between the jewel-colored lakes, which are linked by a series of picture-perfect waterfalls. Following your walk, board an electric boat for the trip across Kozjak Lake, lined with thick forest and karst formations that drop to the edge of the water. After your time at Plitvice Lakes, head to a nearby restaurant for a hearty, three-course lunch of traditional regional cuisine. When your leisurely meal concludes, begin the return trip to Zagreb, arriving at your hotel by roughly 6pm.

WOW!
Dec 2017 • Couples
The day trip from Zagreb to Plitvice Lakes is worth the time investment-- about a 1.5 hour drive from city center. The views were amazing. The walk was beautiful, though being winter, a bit slippery in some places. This is best for confident walkers though no special athleticism is required. This is truly a special place and I feel grateful to have spent a day there. The guide from Petros was terrific. Knowledgeable and just an enjoyable person to spend the day with.
