UNESCO Plitvice Lakes and National Park

FROM £88

This is a day of truly stunning scenery as we visit Croatia’s Plitvice National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Situated in a valley between high, forested mountains, sixteen beautiful lakes spill into each other - forming cascades and thundering waterfalls. You will see a sprawling limestone and chalk landscape of blue and green lakes, trickling streams, old mossy caves, and more spectacular waterfalls. This geological marvel formed as far back as the Jurassic period. Most of the 16 lakes within the park are lined with boardwalks that allow you to get up close and personal with the most scenic waterfall areas, allowing you to get a closer look at the formations created by the rushing of water over mineral-rich rocks. No humans are allowed to enter the beautiful crystal water here which means that you can truly experience the beauty that’s on offer. There is a lot to appreciate here as the park hosts hundreds of variations of flora and fauna, the park is home to brown bears, wolves and eagles.

This excursion includes a boat trip across Lake Kozjak, the largest lake in the park, and there will be free time to take lunch. Of all the highlights this week, this is one you will remember for its breath-taking views.
