Plitvice Lakes National Park - Ulaz / Entrance 1

Plitviče Lakes National Park
Plitviče Lakes National Park features a family or two of brown bears, three packs of wolves, 157 bird species, 16 lakes in all imaginable shades of blue and green and waterfalls around every corner. It also features hordes upon hordes of zombie tourists with pesky selfie sticks, so if you are in charge of your own schedule, visit the park as early in the day as you can.

Our group spent three to four hours hiking through the park, and crowds aside, it is breathtaking! We were dropped off at Entrance 1, hiked to P3, then took a boat across a dark blue lake to P2, explored the waterfalls there, and hopped on another boat to ferry us the short distance to P1, where we were picked up again. We had a fantastic guide with us, knowledgeable and passionate, and although you can easily hike the park without someone holding your hand, it made our experience so much richer. It also allowed us to find humor and sanity in conversation with a local, while ducking other peoples cameras and iphones.

Plitviče is open all year, unless it snows, or the walkways get too slippery otherwise. For entrance fees, please consult the parks website, as they change per high/ low season.

>>>Warm thanks to Alan Mandić from Secret Dalmatia, for organizing a truly memorable, and off the beaten path trip for our curious and insatiable group of travelers, and to the Art Hotel Kalelarga for perfect accommodations in Zadar.
