Discover one of the oldest and largest national parks in Croatia. The unity and harmony of the 16 lakes there and their rare natural and cultural value is not only famous throughout Croatia, but also worldwide. This is why this remarkable national park has a coveted place on UNESCO's list of World Heritage sites.
On this tour, first you will visit the village of Rastoke. Rastoke are the gateway to the amazing Plitvice Lakes area. Get a glimpse at some of the small waterfalls, the well-preserved mills and traditional houses that line the banks of the Slunjčica River.
Arriving at Plitvice, you will walk through these ancient woodlands. The path will take you first across Gornja Jezera (the Upper Lakes), a system of 12 lakes separated by travertine barriers.
Wherever you will be in Plitvice, it will be easy to see why its travertine marble formations are such an extraordinary natural phenomenon. The barriers, sills and other forms created in these lakes, the karst rivers and streams are still an ongoing process that shapes the wonderful landscapes. It is these same travertine formations that have and are still creating the numerous magnificent waterfalls here.
