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. Opt for a Croatian-style lunch at a local restaurant (own expense) before the journey back to Split. End the tour with a drop-off at your hotel.

Best thing I have seen in Croatia. We were there in October, and according to our great guide, Elena, this was a really quiet day. Still, at times we were surrounded by Chinese people busy working on their photoskills. We travelled from Split, which is quite a long drive (about
