Zagreb to Split via Plitvice Lakes 2021 | Day trip

Scenic drive | Visit Plitvice Lakes National Park | Private transfer

Last few years travelers coming to Croatia often plan scenic ‘Odyssey’ en route: Zagreb → Plitvice lakes → Split. We do Private Transfer Zagreb to Split and help you to explore half of Croatia in just 1 day! It’s door-to-door service. Yeah!!

Why should I do private transfer?

a) First, tour is fully flexible, so you can control all aspects of private transfer Zagreb to Split: start time, pick-up/drop-off location, attractions you want to include/exclude etc.

b) Second, as you get undiluted attention, we have plenty of time to discuss Croatian history, culture, politics, sports, everyday life, EU dynamics etc. It’s a kind of crash course ‘What’s going on in Croatia?’. This substitutes time-consuming reading of Wikipedia, printed guidebooks, travel blogs and forums about Croatia.

c) Last but not least, I would provide you with Croatia road map, Split city map and useful tips: where to go, what to see, restaurants, museums, beaches… you name it!

Is Plitvice Lakes NP worth visiting?

Definitely – yes! Plitvice Lakes NP offers combination of unspoiled nature, dense forest, crystal clear lake water and one of the last refuge for wildlife in Croatia. But, take a look at drone video footage and make a decision on your own…
