This tour is an excellent opportunity to learn why are people enchanted with Plitvice Lakes. Over one million people every year stops in the Lika region just to be able to enjoy this masterpiece of nature. Through centuries water was carving lakes and forming waterfalls resulting with creation of 16 crystal clear lakes of different sizes, linked by stunning waterfalls. Around all this beauty, 30.000 hectares of native vegetation mountains form a masterpiece of Croatia’s fauna and flora.
It is the first and biggest National park in Croatia and the only one put on UNESCO list of natural heritage, since 1979, because of its geological and ecological importance. On your way to the National park you will visit Open air museum of Homeland War (1991.-1995.). It is a good opportunity to explain “when, why, who” about this unfortunate period of Croatian history. In a while we stop again to see an overture for the Lakes – Rastoke watermill village. This settlement was created on the junction of two rivers providing force for various watermills.
Most of them nowadays don’t work. We’ll show you one that does. Thirty minutes after Rastoke we arrive to the National park Plitvice lakes. Considering weather conditions, your wishes and capabilities we will choose the best route between many that are possible. We will hike, cross the biggest lake with the boat and drive with the panoramic bus.
* This unique experience will be enriched with additional visit to Open museum of Homeland war and Rastoke watermills village.
