Head to the activity provider's office and board a comfortable coach. Sit back and relax on the drive through the countryside to the UNESCO World Heritage Listed Plitvice Lakes National Park. Listen to onboard commentary during the smooth drive.

A must-do in Croatia! Plitvice Lakes National Park is simply stunning from start to finish. The transfer from Split was smooth with a few breaks on the road. The guide gave information about Split and the surrounding area during the bus ride and he stayed with us to orient us and offered his help for photos in the park. A superb experience that requires a bit of physical condition!

Nothing to say about the site which is magnificent. In addition, in high season we benefited from the group rate of 250 Kn instead of 300 Kn. The break for the journey was a bit long on the way (40 minutes) and encroaches on the visit time in Plitvice. Plan a good breakfast because you will have lunch late in the afternoon. Remember to take an appropriate but glamorous outfit for your memorable souvenir photos. Don't be fooled by the pay toilets. Go to those at the gas station which are free. Thanks to Renato for his Croatian humor and his many acquaintances, he will happily take your souvenir photos on the site.

Sandra is an outstanding guide who gives clear information and good advice to fully enjoy the park. Bonus point for his good humor and humor!! Visit of the park in high season (July 18). Despite a large number of tourists, the park remains pleasant and it is easy to move around thanks to its large size.
