Full description

Escape the hustle and bustle of Split's city center on a full-day guided tour of one of Croatia’s most beautiful national parks at Krka.

Upon arrival, go to the small town of Skradin to take a short boat cruise down the Krka River. Disembark at the Skradinski Buk waterfalls, and marvel at Europe’s largest travertine cascade system. Take in the fresh air and wild nature, or go to the Ethno Museum in one of the old mills. See the remains of ancient settlements and small stone houses, along with the first hydroelectric power station in Europe.

Despite a little wait for the arrival of the guide, everything was very well supervised. The guide collects the money for the entrance to the park on the bus (provide cash). Arrived there we are free to visit then we have to take a boat to arrive in a very beautiful village where we could rest on the beach. The Krka Park is magnificent and magical. I recommend !

The park is beautiful and the boat ride to the krka river (no waterfalls) which you can swim in is a lovely scenic experience. You are left to do your own thing the entire time (other than a WhatsApp group where you can post questions which the host was helpful with, including sharing map locations for pick up points etc) which suited me and my friend as we don’t enjoy guided tours! Would definitely recommend if you want to explore for yourself.

A really well organised trip allowing something for everyone with the timings and led by Martha. The waterfalls are amazing; just ended up with loads of photos from every angle. Boat trip was the icing and I recommend the wine tasting to finish off the day (the olive oil looked great too though I don’t like olive oil). Highly recommend for a lovely day trip
