Krka national park and waterfalls all day tour
ABOUT THIS TOUR
Undoubtedly one of the top things to do in Split, join us on a fully guided all day tour of Krka national park washed down with some wonderful homemade spirits at a local homestead on your way back – its on us! .
All our tours are small group tours, never consisting of more than 19 guests and by including the park fees in the price, we avoid long entrance queues in the summer months.
We will visit 3 of the nicest locations within Krka national park and give you ample opportunity to enjoy the nicest views, swim in the nicest places (in the swimming season, from June 1st until September 30th), and after enjoying a full day in the park, try some wonderful home-made local spirits with our friend Neno – to your heart’s content!
We head off from Split to Skradinski buk, the largest travertine waterfall in Europe with a stop for a view of the town of Skradin, a town that is over 2000 years old and is located within the Krka national park river canyon itself.
We will spend 2:30 hours at Skradinski buk, with enough time for a swim under the Krka waterfalls and a walk around the park in order to take some beautiful photographs and enjoy the sights.
Then we head to our second location, the viewpoint of the Island of Visovac, Krka one of the most photographed islands in Croatia. We proceed to the Roški waterfall, Krka complex to enjoy a very relaxed part of the Krka national park noting all the beautiful flora and the fauna of the park in the best way possible.
The Roški waterfalls, Krka is a secret corner of the park which is still undiscovered by commercial tourism – we want you to have the opportunity to enjoy Krka national park in the best way possible, away from the madding Summer Krka crowds.
We visit the ethno exhibition within the Krka national park, and you have enough free time to explore Oziđana cave (a prehistoric locality with human remains that go back to the Neolithic period), enjoy the beautiful views of Ogrlice waterfalls, Krka, and have an optional lunch, if you haven`t packed a snack for the trip.
On the way back to Split we stop for some spirit tasting at our friend Neno’s small homestead (“konoba”) in an authentic rural setting, where you will learn a little bit about how our local spirit rakija is made and the social importance of rakija in Croatia – it’s on us.
The second stop is the viewpoint overlooking the town of Trogir which will give you the third amazing panoramic view of the day.
