    What you need to know about Plitvice National Park

    Plitvice Lakes are the oldest and the largest national park in Croatia. It was proclaimed the first national park in Croatia in 1949 and since then thousands and thousands of tourists came to witness its stunning nature miracle. Its popularity especially grew after the Plitvice Lakes received international recognition in 1979 and got on UNESCO World Heritage List. The National Park area expands on area of 300 km2 and the lake chain consists of 16 lakes. The lake system is divided into Upper and Lower Lakes. On Upper lakes you will discover Prošćansko jezero, Ciginovac, Okrugljak, Batinovac, Big lake, Little lake, Vir, Galovac, Milino lake, Gradinsko, Burget and Kozjak. The Lower lakes will enchant you with four more lakes- Milinovac, Gavanovac, Kaluđerovac and Novakovića Brod. Plitvice Lakes are all connected by scenic wooden paths and hiking trails, all together available for visitors through the whole year.

    One of the most beautiful waterfalls on Plitvice – the waterfall between Milanovac and Gavanovac is called ‘Milka Trnina’ by Croatian famous opera prima donna.

    The lakes are filled with crystal blue water, and they get water from numerous small rivers and streams.

    Most people will choose the summer time to visit Plitvice Lakes, but the Park is enchanting at all seasons of the year. It is hard to say when it is the best time to visit Plitvice Lakes because each period carries its magic.

    A couple of centuries ago the Plitvice Lakes area on the maps was labeled as ‘Devil’s Garden’, it is not known why, but it is assumed that the reason is the fact that this area was border with the Ottoman Empire.

    There are over 1460 plant species and subspecies in the Park, which make up about 30% of the total Croatian flora. There are a lot of endemic species too.

    The park is a home to many animal species, from river and stream crabs, 321 butterflies species, fishes like trout, chub, pickerel, 12 species of amphibians and reptiles, over 163 bird species, 58 species of mammals, there are 21 species of bats and the Park is also home for bears, wolves, lynx and otter.

    The legend about the origin of Plitvice Lakes says that after the great drought the Black Queen from the mountains came, and sent rain and thunder to the exhausted people and that is how these beautiful 16 lakes arose. It is believed that if there was no Black Queen, there would be no Plitvice Lakes.

    Why is our private tour the best way of getting to Plitvice Lakes National Park from Split?

    A really great way to meet new people who share a common interest with you is on our public tours, but there are many advantages of taking a private tour.
    Meeting new people can be half the fan on a tour, but of course there is always a risk of having someone along who you don’t get along which can spoil your trip.

    On the other hand, by booking a private tour you are the one who gathers the people you want to spend a day with and feel that will enjoy the same kind of vacation like yourself.

    There is no need to worry about other people on the tour, each with different preferences and opinions about what they want to see and do because a private tour is all and only about your needs.

    You are worrying about how you are going to reach the destination, will there be available tickets for you, what to see and do inside the Park and most importantly- will you get all the best out of this once in a life time experience?

    With our private tour, the answer on this question is- yes, because your own private driver and guide are here to take care of all those details and worry for you, leaving you to relax and truly enjoy your Croatian holiday!

    On private tour, you are able to ask as many questions, ask for specific requests and stops during the tour, take photos and seek the best spots to have refreshment and all of this at your leisure ensuring you a memorable day.

    Plitvice Lakes National park is about 250 kilometers away from Split and it takes between 3-4 hours to reach the Park.

    There are buses from Split to Plitvice Lakes but that’s not the best option, because the buses are often crowded with many stops along the way and the drive takes more than 5 hours.

    The other option is to rent a car and take the highway up to Plitvice from Split, but this option is very exhausting because you have to drive in both directions, and it is very expensive as well, because you have to pay for car, highway and fuel.

    When you go with us, you do not have to worry about any of these things. You just relax in our luxury and fully equipped mini bus with air conditioning and Wi-Fi that is provided along the entire journey. Enjoy in a tour our professional guide prepared for you, and if you decide to have a private tour there are no other guests with you, so you can enjoy these beautiful moments privately with your friends and family and you can change itinerary so it matches your wishes.
