Tour Overview

You think you've seen some beautiful places in Europe, but you haven't seen anything like Plitvice and Krka National Parks, the twin peaks of Croatia's sensational scenery. This trip is all about getting you up close to the emerald lakes, cascading waterfalls and winding hiking trails, where you'll hike, bike, picnic and swim - with your jaw on the floor every step of the way.

Highlights

  • 2 Lunch (L)

  • 2 Breakfast (B)

  • 1 Dinner (D)

  • Plitvice Lakes National Park: Cameras at the ready folks, some jaw-dropping natural beauty awaits. With a local guide by our side, we’ll explore the UNESCO World Heritage listed Plitvice Lakes – including the upper and lower lakes, plus the magnificent Great Waterfall. We’ll then make our way to Krka National Park to take in some of Croatia's finest landscapes.

  • : Hrovje was born into an adventure sports loving family in Croatia. Growing up, he loved hiking the National Parks and exploring the Adriatic Coastline during the summer. Now, Hrovje loves nothing more than showing off his homeland to travelers; he is passionate about local food and will even let you in on some secret family recipes.

  • Plitvice Lakes National Park: You’ll have the chance to enjoy local products over lunch and dinner, which usually means some seriously fresh produce. As you appreciate the great tastes, you’ll also learn about dining Croatia-style, and find out how these popular products are sourced.

  • Plitvice Lakes National Park: Today we'll set out to explore the Plitvice Valley on two wheels. We’ll discover the ancient Barac Caves, their hidden treasures and spectacular rock formations that date back all the way to the Neanderthals(!) Afterwards, we’ll enjoy a tremendous picnic… with an equally tremendous view.

Day 1: Split To Plitvice Lakes National Park
Location: Split, Plitvice Lakes National Park
Accommodation: Camping Korona (Or similar)
Meals Included: Lunch, Dinner

Welcome to Croatia! We'll meet our host and get to know our new friends this morning before driving inland to one of the most spectacular National Parks in the world. En-route, we will enjoy the first of many delicious Croatian meals: think grilled meats and plenty of healthy veg.




Arriving at Plitvice, we'll settle into our accommodation and have some time to chill out. Then it's time to kick off the adventure with our very first hike. Make sure there's some space on your camera roll: today we'll take the stunning Plitvice Loop, through the Upper and Lower Lakes and past the magnificent Great Waterfall. Returning to the accommodation, giddy from all that scenery, we'll enjoy a well deserved included feast where we'll taste fresh local produce. What a start, and there's more to come.

Day 2: Plitvice Lakes National Park And Barac Caves
Location: Plitvice Lakes National Park
Meals Included: Breakfast

After fuelling up with a hearty breakfast this morning, we'll set off to explore the Plitvice Valley on an included bike tour. Afterwards, we’ll enjoy a tremendous picnic… with an equally tremendous view. This afternoon, you’re free to choose your adventure: options include exploring an abandoned Military Airport, exploring more of the Plitvice Valley on two wheels, or heading into the towns of Slunj and Rastoke for some trail walking and swimming. Tonight, we'll regroup at our accommodation with time for dinner (and a well-deserved rest.)

Day 3: Plitvice Lakes National Park To Split
Location: Plitvice Lakes National Park, Krka National Park, Split
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch

After breakfast today we say goodbye to Plitvice National Park and make our way South toward the town of Skradin.




Upon arrival we'll explore Roski Slap, the Great Waterfall of Krka, before enjoying a delicious buffet lunch with fresh local produce including mouthwatering prosciutto and cheese. After lunch we'll make our way into the otherworldly Krka National Park where we'll hike amongst some of the most beautiful landscapes in Croatia. 




After some relaxing time in the park, we make the short drive to Split where our trip ends, but the scenery we've witnessed will live long in the memory.

My amazing trip to Africa

Sherif was an excellent tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable about every single small detail at each site that we visited. In addition to his great service, he has a glowing spirit that made me feel like I had family with me the entire trip. Anything that I was concerned about, he always had an answer and was there to help. I truly enjoyed my experience and will purchase a tour with him in the future
