What to Expect
Get an early start with a morning pickup from your select Split hotel. From there, hop inside a minivan and meet your small group for the drive to Plitvice. Arrive at the park and begin a hike along the boardwalk. As you walk around the park, stop for photo ops of the lakes, waterfalls, and canyons. Make your way to Upper Lakes and get close to wildlife like brown bears, mink, or wild boar—if you’re lucky. Your guide waits at checkpoints, ensuring a healthy pace and that no one is left behind. Then, take a sightseeing cruise around the Lower Lakes, passing towering Veliki Slap waterfall, Croatia’s largest.

The long drive was worth it! Spent nearly 5 hours in the park which was so beautiful. Going with a small group meant it was easy to keep the group together and moving at the same pace. The guide was great and made the drive more interesting by telling us a lot about Croatia.
