Plitvice, with its luminous lakes and spectacular waterfalls, is one of the most popular destinations in this part of Europe! The waters flowing over the limestone and chalk have, over thousands of years, deposited travertine barriers, creating natural dams which in turn have created a series of 16 beautiful lakes, caves and waterfalls. These geological processes continue today. The forests in the park are home to bears, wolves and many rare bird species. The entire area around the lakes is so lush and wildly pristine that UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site in 1979.
The lake system is divided into the upper lakes and the lower lakes. The lakes receive most of their water from rivers called Black River and White River. After it rushes past the Sastavci waterfall on the lower lakes, water continues to flow to the Korana River and the Plitvice brook, dropping from an elevation of 76m.
The Lake areas are lovely and cool during summer, icy and calm in winter, yellow and ochre in autumn, green and fresh in spring. Most of the region gets cowered with snow from November until the end of March and, in December and January, all of the lakes freeze over creating a magical winter landscape.
The lakes and the park are conveniently located near the main road that connects Zagreb with the Adriatic Coast which enables us to offer Plitvice tours from all regions of Croatia except the islands and Dubrovnik.
Tour from Zagreb includes a visit to the very picturesque Rastoke. Rastoke is located on Slunjcica River, right before it flows into the river Korana. In Rastoke, Slunjcica creates a series of small lakes and picturesque waterfalls. Discover the rare symbiosis of beautiful nature and well preserved 17th century mills. Enjoy the fresh caught trout, delicious lamb from Lika region, veal or venison in a local tavern.

Krka National Park is one of the most fascinating regions of Croatia and one of the most popular places to visit in Dalmatia!

Split is a city rich in history, culture, sports and fashion. It is no accident that a local guy named Diocletian who happened to become a very significant Roman emperor chose Split to build his magnificent palace more than 1700 years ago and the rest is history...so you could say this place radiates a special kind of energy. It is a city that generated so many extraordinary athletes and artists, traditionally welcoming and warm capital of Dalmatia especially to open-hearted travelers who appreciate its sense of humor.
An ideal opportunity to get to know Split in its full splendor is to join us on our Split Vibrations tour. We will take you outside the Palace and reward you with a whole new experience.
The starting point is the Promenade and we first board on a panoramic drive along the sandy beach Bačvice, sports facilities built for the Mediterranean Games in 1979 (Sports center Gripe, Football stadium) and museums (Maritime, Archeological, Meštrović Gallery). The drive continues along the slopes of Marjan hill, covered in dense Mediterranean pine forest and completely surrounded by the city and the sea, making it a unique sight.
Then you arrive to Bene – beach awarded with the coveted Blue Flag to start sea kayaking experience, (perfect for all beginners too as we keep close to the shore).
After an introduction in paddling techniques and safety, we start our way around the peninsula. As the scenery changes from secluded bays in shaded pine forests to pebble beaches, we'll stop for a dip in one of the bays—a perfect location for snorkeling as well! Explore the "wild side" of Split from the sea level perspective, just minutes away from the hectic city center! And don't forget to pack your swimming gear as we stop for a swim and some snorkeling in one of Marjan's coves.
The kayaking tour completes your Split Vibrations tour. Back on Bene, you will board the same shuttle that took you for a sightseeing tour around Split. Or, if you wish, you can stay there at the beach and enjoy swimming, a light lunch or coffee in the shade of pine trees and breathe in Marjan – the green lungs of Split.
