The highlights of this Plitvice Lakes activity holiday include kayaking, rafting, walking and cycling in the area around Plitvice Lakes National Park while experiencing breathtaking views and stunning scenery of Croatia. Plitvice Lakes National Park, a World Heritage Site, plays host to 16 lakes, numerous waterfalls fed by both the Black and White Rivers, as well as seemingly endless forests which make for unique and unforgettable experiences. The itinerary will also take you on a journey down Zrmanja and Mreznica Rivers by kayak, rafting down the Una River in Bosnia and Herzegovina and cycling over rolling hills to Barac Caves.
Accommodation is provided by the families of Korana Village, a small romantic place hidden away in a valley by the river in Plitvice Lakes National Park. The houses are small, traditional dwellings with simple, clean and comfortable rooms in an idyllic setting. The peaceful atmosphere makes for an ideal base from which we will explore the surrounding area.
Join us in this small Mediterranean country that’s big on adventure. With delicious Croatian fare and intimate lodgings it’s easy to see why both Lonely Planet and National Geographic have called Croatia a “must do” destination.
