Plitvice Lakes N.P. Bus Tour from Zadar with skip-the-line

    What to Expect
    Departing from Zadar in the morning, your day trip starts with the 1-hour-and-45-minute drive to Plitvice Lakes National Park.

    Home to diverse vegetation and wildlife, including wild boar, wolves, and even bears, the park was granted World Heritage status in 1979. Located roughly halfway between Zagreb and Zadar, it's marked on old maps as the Devil’s Garden; the spectacular area consists of 16 interconnected terraced lakes, gushing over travertine rock covered in moss.

    When you arrive at Plitvice, begin your 4-hour guided tour, visiting the Upper Lakes and Lower Lakes and enjoying the unspoiled environment of one of the most beautiful national parks in the world. Although you can’t swim in the protected lakes, your guide will show you the best places to explore and relax in this paradise of natural wonders. Besides walking and sightseeing, the tour includes an electric boat ride on Kozjak Lake.

    On your way back, stop for lunch at a restaurant outside the park (own expense) before returning to Zadar, where your tour ends.

    Plitvice National Park is gorgeous. Our full day tour was well organised and enjoyable, with a combination of walking and boat rides, and an enthusiastic guide. The only things that would have made it better would have been an extra hour or so to explore...More
