PLITVICE LAKES NATIONAL PARK

The Plitvice Lakes are a whole year sensation, especially when covered in snow during winter periods. They truly resemble a winter wonderland. You can relax in the shade or explore the results of the process called sedimentation of calcium carbonate and the work of special kinds of algae and moss. Tufa or travertine has continuously been deposited to form the natural dams that separate the lakes. Since the process is still ongoing today, just as it has always been, new travertine barriers, stalactites, channels, curtains and cascades are being built and the existing ones are changing, giving the water a sparkling beauty and enhancing the allure of the trees and stones which fall into the lakes. The water keeps breaking through the travertine barriers at different places, so that the entire process of formation of lakes and dams is alive and very dynamic. This is a unique and interesting natural phenomenon. Nature continues to impress in undisturbed ecological conditions. Besides the lakes, there are some interesting caves in which the remains of prehistoric settlements have been found. In the end, we suggest using the opportunity to taste typical local dishes from this area in a local tavern (optional). You will have some free time to take coffee or a snack and enjoy this beautiful green oasis.the National Park, our guide will lead you to the entrance and buy tickets for you. You will get a map of the park with all the good trails you could use. Our guide will inform you about the time and meeting point for the return back to Split, and then your adventure begins.
