Know More about this tour

At agreed time, your tour guide/driver will pick you up from Zagreb to start the comfortable ride to the national park. On your way, your first stop will be a visit to the Homeland War memorial in Turanj. The collection is set up on a battlefield of one of the worst fights of the Croatian army which defended Karlovac and proves the importance of Turanj as an advance guard for Karlovac since the period of the Ottoman Empire.

After this intriguing history lesson, enjoy a short stop for coffee in Rastoke. This village represents an excellent introduction to the Plitvice Lakes as this location is often called the 'Small Lakes of Plitvice' because both destinations are connected by the same river. Apart from astonishing natural beauties, Rastoke is best known for its well-preserved mills and little waterfalls along the Slunjica river. All along the travertine barrier, you can discover houses and mills which represent the unique style of this region.

Arriving at Plitvice Lakes National Park, begins your adventure of discovering the whole park area accompanied by your tour guide. This park consists of 16 terraced lakes, formed by natural travertine dams.

Enjoy the walk and be amazed by the preserved nature of the area. After the tour your tour guide will take you to the local restaurant where you can taste typical dishes of this area.

  • Marinko was a great tour guide and made this a worthwhile tour! He was funny, informative, and helpful--he took photos for us at all the good spots! We were very comfortable on the trip to and from the park and really enjoyed our time. This company provides you with all the information needed for an enjoyable trip, such as recommended shoes, attire, etc. 10/10 I highly recommend this tour!

  • Such a wonderful trip and such a good guide! Marinko was so nice and so helpful, despite the awful weather we encountered it rained non stop and torrential rain! it was so hard to walk in puddles and in very narrow walkways, it was hard to see the beautiful scenery, struggling with our ponchos and umbrellas and trying to squeeze in to walk, there were so many people! But despite all that, I am glad we did this tour and Marinko took us to a very special restaurant with real local food! I recommend to everyone to take this tour!

  • We were on the tour on 7th Sept 17 . To Begin with I must confess we were extremely distraught with the weather. Thunder storm was predicated. Our tour van and guide picked us up on time. It was raining at the time . However his easy manner and effective communication indicated the weather could be different in the mountains. Marinko gave us hope . Through the journey he kept a steady flow of information that was helpful. He handled the group well , his experience counted . He had a sense of humour that was lively. At the lakes the rain was intermittent. The lakes as such were heavenly and all that is written about . I guess in good weather it would have been much better ! in spite we came back with some great pictures. When it rains a small camera under the umbrella helps. the other important aspect is foot wear based on weather. A good grip sole is essential. Carry some munches there is little time to sit down for a bite . We thank Marinko for a great day . Best to all who visit. its worth it.

  • I would recommend this tour to anyone who goes to Zagreb. The Lake and Waterfalls are beautiful and new experience around every turn. Our tour guy was excellent. Gave us a lot of history of the country and of the lake

  • A very long but great tour that begins in Zagreb early in the morning. Our group was only 8 plus our guide/driver who kept us entertained with stories and facts about the places we were going to. We had a first stop around 35 minutes after leaving the city to get something to eat and also buy a snack for later. Then we visited the village of Rastoke and later we arrived at the lakes.
    Very nice visit that includes walking/hiking through all 16 lakes in about 4 hours or so. Around 3 PM we left the lakes and went to a restaurant to eat something for lunch.
    The only issue was the some of the people in the tour were going to Split while another larger group around 50 came from Split to the lakes and some were coming to Zagreb. They arrived later than us to the restaurant and had a pre-arranged meal so us that were returning to Zagreb had to wait 60 minutes doing nothing after we were done eating for them to finish so the tour guides could control who was going were. Ride back to Zagreb took a bit longer because of traffic but aside from that minor detail at the restaurant, a very nice trip.

  • Fantastic tour! Well planned and organised. Managed to see all of the falls and all of the lakes in one day. Marinko, our guide, was superb! Knew the park like the back of his hand, even knew where to stand to get on the shuttle bus first. Patient and professional with some of the painful guests

  • This tour was outstanding! We had a great day with our tour guide, Marinko, who was so knowledge, helpful, and fun! He knew the best places in the park to take our group and we were able to avoid many of the touristy areas. It was really great to hear his stories about Croatia and the local areas near Plitvice Lakes. The trip to and from the Lakes was relaxing and we had a great time at the local restaurant afterwards. Plitvice Lakes are stunning and I would highly recommend this tour!

  • The tour was amazing as it was stunningly beautiful however was very rushed with little photo opportunities and time to take in the beauty that this national park had to offer. The day ended nicely with a 3 course lunch from 70-100 Kuna and hotel drop offs which was great after a long day of walking

  • If you are visiting Zagreb, the day tour to Plitvice Lakes and Rastoke is an absolute must do. It is a day full of fantastic scenery. Our tour guide for the day, Mirenko, was terrific. His local knowledge of the lakes and surrounding areas was second to none which he combined with a good sense of humour. The restaurant meal near the end of the day was ordinary.

  • Highly recommended, the Plitvice lakes are beautiful. With respect to the excursion itself, the van is very comfortable, the guide guy was very nice and friendly and care about our safety all the time.
    Thank you viator.
