Join us for a day trip to Plitvice Lakes, the oldest and largest National Park in Croatia. Walk around 16 beautiful lakes connected in the perfect cascaded lake system.

The park is situated in the mountainous region of Croatia, 2 hours drive from the city of Zagreb.

With its exceptional natural beauty, this area has always attracted nature lovers, and already on 8 April 1949, it was proclaimed Croatia’s first national park.

Plitvice Lakes were internationally recognised on 26 October 1979 with their inscription onto the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The lake system is comprised of 16 named and several smaller unnamed lakes, cascading one into the next. Due to the geological substrate and characteristic hydrogeological conditions, the lake system has been divided into the Upper and Lower lakes.

We recommend:

  • Wearing the appropriate clothing and footwear
  • Bringing adequate rain and sun protection (umbrella, raincoat; sunglasses, hat, sunscreen)
  • On sunny days in June, the air temperature is about 25°C
  • Check the weather forecast before coming to the park
