Paradise Tour of the Plitvice Lakes
Full day adventure
Hello all! Have you ever heard about the Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia?
Or you were drawn by some beautiful picture of high waterfalls that form a lake framed by untouched nature as if from some other planet? You maybe thought that the picture comes from the midst of the African continent, or form some undiscovered green planet outside our dimension… And then you find out that this heavenly green picture in reality exists in Croatia, in the heart of Europe, that it is not just a masterpiece of the inspired artist, but brutally original expressionism of nature in its full force and reality. This natural phenomenon has been proclaimed The Eight World Wonder.
The name of this heavenly garden is the Plitvice Lakes. It is positioned in the Croatian mountains of the Lika Province, where the nature remains untouched, soil is fertile, forests are thick and trees are tall and people hardworking, large, strong and tall, something like the land of lumberjacks although that is not their prime economic activity.
If you have seen any of the worlds’ wonders that maybe left you with a wow effect on your face, than after you see the Plitvice Lakes it is going to be wooow. We claim this with no exaggeration at all, see for yourself, in any case the Easy Ride Agency is the only one that refunds all the money you have paid, if you are not satisfied with what you have seen and experienced during our tours. You have nothing to lose.
Unique waterfalls, turquoise lakes and untouched nature will convince you that the Plitvice Lakes are really heaven on Earth. That is where we are going. Where else in the world one can find in one place the most beautiful lakes in the world, numerous ones, and there are 16 of them there, 16 crystal clear dark blue and green lakes cascading into each other with many magnificent waterfalls. Such power of nature! The deepest lake is 47m/154ft deep. This heavenly garden spreads to 300sq km/186 sq mi. Such a unique position and beauty! Furthermore, the Plitvice Lakes are known around the world as the ‘Land of Falling Lakes’ and the ‘Land Where the Stones Grow’ and it is one of the main sites of filming the world famous movie ‘Winnetou’ about famous Apache tribal chief.
The complete Park is positioned on 380m/1246ft and on 1280m/4199ft above sea level what significantly contributes to diversity of flora and fauna. This National Park is home to the big game: bears, wild boars, deer and wolves. Of course they are difficult to see as they avoid people and live hidden in the parts of the park further from the waterfalls and lakes where the visitors walk. Also it is possible to experience one of the lakes named ‘Kozjak’ by boat as the Park has 8 electrical eco boats that transfer visitors over the lake. The Plitvice Lakes were proclaimed the world natural heritage by UNESCO, amongst the first of a kind in a world in 1979 and it is the biggest, the oldest and the most visited Croatian Park with around 1.5 million visitors a year.
Departure is at 8.a.m. from the place where you are or the place you want us to pick you up. It is between 11 and 12 hours long adventure. Transfer is by luxurious, comfortable and air-conditioned vehicle and your driver is a multifunctional professional person full of knowledge and skills, an excellent English speaker, with sharpened talent for many aspects of living. He is also very bright, communicative and capable to organize anything you might need on the tour and after it, or during your complete stay in the Republic of Croatia. The first stop is our complementary Surprise location – historic hot-spot with breathtaking panoramic view of 7 islands and 2 cities.
After Surprise location we drive the highway watching the mountain range, scattered villages and farms at the foothills and plateaus while the vegetation slightly changes as we approach the higher tops. As the distance from the sea grows the vegetation becomes more luxuriant; forests are thicker and trees are higher than the Mediterranean bushes. We climb to the higher sea level and notice the changes in the architecture too.
The houses have the roofs with greater slopes for the snow to slide easier as in this province in Croatia(Lika), it snows a lot. After 2.5 to 3 hours of ride, we get to our destination: the National Park Plitvice Lakes.
The sightseeing adventure starts from the woods where the parking with the restaurants and other tourist objects is. We start to notice much sharper mountain air with a load of oxygen as if we got to some hill state after two hours flight instead of a car drive, this feeling describes the category of diversities of Croatia – a small country that has everything!
Here our happy group, armed with the backpacks, good cameras, or at least 20 Mega pixel mobile phones, or maybe only full of good will and reset memory that will be completely full at the end of the day, meets their guide, (if you decide against roaming around this natural phenomenon by yourselves) and starts their adventure. After 4 hours of exploring the lakes and plant diversity, after long walk, meditation, a complete freedom from civilization and escape from stress and everyday obligations, regenerated and psychophysically improved with a wooow expression on your faces that you will not be able to hide, we meet at the agreed place. Hungry and with good appetite you have an organized lunch in one of the famous restaurants inside/outside the Park and enjoy the food and drinks of this province. After lunch, energized by excellent delicacies of this region, full of impressions, searching through pictures in our phones and our minds we head back to Split. We are there after 2 and a half or 3 hours drive, we take you wherever you want, we say goodbye at dusk and everything you experienced now seems like a dream of perfection and simplicity of life… We are glad that we were the ones who allowed you to experience all this. Your exhilaration is the best recommendation for our peaceful sleep… Easy Ride…
