Hiking Plitvice Lakes

Not so many places in the World deserve so many superlatives as the National Park Plitvice Lakes in Croatia. It is home to the brown bears, wolves, and foxes, very hard to see, but hundreds of fish posing for you as national park influencers. Flora and fauna are like huge organisms which every day grow and are best seen while hiking Plitvice Lakes Park. The animal world of the Plitvice Lakes National Park is diverse and rich thanks to the diversity and preservation of the habitats. 

While walking above the water, next to waterfalls, the wooden paths and trails bring you to the biggest lake, Lake Kozjak. Kozjak Lake divides upper lakes from lower lakes. Also a place for refreshments, where restaurants, cafes and snack bars, facilities, benches, and tables are located surrounded by the scenic forest. No need to bring a swimming costume as it is forbidden to swim within the national park. For swimming, there are other places outside to be discovered, so join us on our tour.
