Plitvice lakes excursion , no guide ,no group , entrance ticket not included, simple and cheap
From US$34.89
Enjoy a completely independent way of exploring the UNESCO-listed Plitvice Lakes National Park on this hands-off tour. Meet your coach in central Zadar, or at your local accommodation, and set off in the morning. You’ll head directly to Plitvice Lakes National Park: famed for its turquoise-hued pools, wooden walkways, and many waterfalls. Upon arrival, purchase your ticket and set off on an independent, self-guided tour of the park. At day’s end, return to Zadar.
What to Expect
Start is between 7:45 and 8:15 every morning depending on where you start from , your hotel or our office in the center of the town.
We go with our 15 persons mini bus directly to the lakes , we make only a short stop at a supermarket so everybody can buy some food. 
You can also bring your own food and water ( in Zadar we have good water out of the pipes and we don't have to buy it) , you can leave your things , bags ... on the bus too because our bus doesn't move and the driver is there watching all the time. 
At 10.00am we get to entrance number 1 . Here you have to buy your own entrance ticket.
The ticket includes the free train and boat ride. 
Like this you will have more then enough time to see the entire park ,relax , take photos and enjoy the nature . In the park it's all wooden roots and it is all signed up , you can't go wrong . 
At 4 pm we meet at the same place again and return in Zadar around 6 pm again. We can drop you of at your place of stay ,or if you are leaving town that day we can leave you at the main bus station.
Please open the exclusions section to view the national park entrance ticket price list ! From the 1 July till the end of August , look at the HIGH SEASON PRICE LIST!!!

You definitely do not need a guild. Perfect trip

I loved this place, this is the reason i visited Croatia, i picked Zadar as it look beautiful and this trip ran straight to the lakes cheaply and with no fuss. When speaking to a friend who had previously been here before booking i asked,...More

Excellent company to get you to a beautiful location

Plitvice Lakes is absolutely stunning and is well worth a visit. The boardwalks throughout the park are well maintained and are wide enough for two people to walk side by side. I would recommend you get the free map/leaflet of the park and not the...More

Unfortunately not. Everyone has to queue for the tickets. i believe lines are longest when all the tours arrive - ie between 9.30 and midday..

Hi we met at the Travel agency and went from there. Their details are : Elegance tours , Varoska 5 , old town. But they do pick up some people directly from their accomodation if they are staying close in Zadar.
