Early in the morning we take a 10min drive through lovely countryside towards Plitvice Lakes, the first Croatian National Park. We start our day hiking along the wooden paths and bridges, in and around Plitvice Lakes, Croatia’s premier national park. Its exquisite series of 16 emerald green and opal blue lakes, more than 90 waterfalls and numerous caves make it a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The lakes are surrounded by beech and pine forests and are home to extensive wildlife. We’ll enjoy a picnic lunch in the pure and untouched nature. A panoramic boat and train ride will take us back to the start.
No previous experience is needed and even children from 6 years old accompanied by parents can participate. Don’t forget to bring your sun cream, picnic and water. In case of colder weather take a long-sleeved shirt. This activity program is a well balanced mixture of activity, nature and culture.
