Private Tour: Plitvice Lakes Day Trip from Zagreb
Spend a day at the breathtaking Plitvice Lake National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, on a private day trip from Zagreb! The Croatian stunner is home to some of the country?s clearest lakes as well as scenic forest trails and crashing cascades of water. Enjoy a walk of the area with a private guide plus an electric boat ride on the lower lakes and a relaxing sightseeing tour by bus. The walk is steep and covers a distance of roughly 1.5 miles (2.4km), but the dramatic lakeside vistas make the effort worthwhile.

Leave your Zagreb hotel by air-conditioned car (or minibus) and travel south to Plitvice Lake National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site, roughly two hours away. The oldest and largest of Croatia?s national parks, Plitvice encompasses a total of sixteen lakes, linked by impressive waterfalls and gushing streams.

On arrival, head out to explore the dense forests that surround the lakes with your private guide. While walking along the forest trails at a steady pace, admire the breathtaking wilderness that can be seen all around you, with colorful wild flowers framing the paths and pretty wooden bridges. The walkways are well maintained yet steep, but your guide will set the pace according to the slowest walker so no one is left behind. Your route takes in some 300 stairs, and while it?s not an easy walk, the views from the vantage points make it oh-so worth it.

Halfway through your walk, enjoy some free time for lunch at a cafe inside the park (own expense), and then take a ride around one of the lower lakes by electric boat. The lakes are famous for their pure water, and while they may look turquoise from a distance, you?ll notice how clear they are when gazing into their depths from your boat.

After your boat ride and the second half of your walk, hop aboard an electric train for a final tour of the park to cover more ground. From the comfort of your seat, look out at breathtaking panoramas of the verdant countryside, punctuated by dazzling lakes.

Swap your mode of transport to your vehicle, and then relax on your journey back to Zagreb, finishing your day trip with a hotel drop-off.
