Plitvice Lakes and Rastoke Day Tour from Zagreb
Visit the UNESCO-listed Plitvice Lakes National Park and riverside village of Rastoke on this full-day trip from Zagreb. Traveling by air-conditioned minivan, stop in Rastoke, dubbed the ‘Little Plitvice,’ and see its cascades and watermills before continuing to Plitvice proper. Here, take a 4-hour sightseeing tour, admiring the lakes and waterfalls by foot, boat, and tram. Finish with lunch (own expense) at a local restaurant before returning to Zagreb. Entrance fees included.
What to Expect
Depart central Zagreb by air-conditioned minivan, and travel south toward Plitvice.

Stop in Turanj to view the Homeland War Memorial, dedicated to the Croatian soldiers killed here during the War of Independence between 1991 and 1995.

Then, break for a stroll and coffee (own expense) in Rastoke, a picture-perfect village dubbed the ‘Small Lakes of Plitvice.’

This historical town fringes the River Slunjčica near its junction with Plitvice’s River Korana, and is famed for its waterfalls. Admire the cascades along with the watermills and distinctive stone-and-wood architecture.

Next, continue to UNESCO-listed Plitvice Lakes National Park. Composed of 16 lakes joined by waterfalls, the park is famed for its beauty and lakes’ changing hues, which shift from turquoise to emerald and gray depending on their mineral content and the angle of sunlight.

Take a guided tour, following the wooden walkways over the lakes and enjoying the beauty of the rushing cascades. On route, take a boat and tram ride to absorb the scenery.

After four hours at Plitvice, enjoy a classic Croatian lunch (own expense) at a local restaurant, with your guide recommending dishes and drinks (own expense).

Finally, return to Zagreb, where your tour ends at the departure point.

We booked through Viator for the tour to Plitvice from and returning to Zagreb. At the time we weren’t aware there was an option to go on to Split instead, and if we’d had a few more days on our trip we definitely would have...More

The best way to see Plitvice Lakes & Rastoke!

My girlfriend and I booked this tour through our Chase rewards points actually so we didn't know which tour company we would get through it. I'm happy (and pretty lucky I think) that we got Portal Day tours. Our tour guide, Milan, was FANTASTIC! He...More
