Summary of Private Krka tour from split

Croatia is well known for having incredible nature and considering a fact that Croatia is a relatively small country, it would be fair to say that the number of national parks in Croatia is surely something to be proud of. Croatia has a total of 7 National parks. The best one to be visited is the Krka waterfalls via our All-inclusive tour.

Trip includes bus/van transfer to National Park and boat cruise to Skradinski Buk (Buk, buka – noise), the loudest and best-known waterfall on the Krka River. You will spend the day at the dramatic waterfalls this park is famous for.
Stroll along wooden boardwalks and bridges at Skradinski Buk, (about an hour round trip). Be amazed with the crystal clear water with waterfalls in the background. Later  embark on a panoramic boat tour to Skaradin – a picturesque town settled at the mouth of the Krka river. 
In the afternoon we visit the coastal town of  Primošten (during the summer) or Šibenik (off-season). Leisure time for lunch, swim, or sightseeing.  It is also possible to visit both of these towns or to book some other experience (Falconry center). Let’s get in touch and find an experience that perfectly suits you.

FAQ

When is the best time to visit Krka National Park?

 Krka National Park is open to visitors year-round. Every season is special. Spring and autumn are lovely due to the comfortable temperatures, lively plant and animal life, and enjoying the educational walking trails and bicycle routes. During winter, when the vegetation is resting, water is at the highest level and the geomorphological forms of the rocks and travertine are best seen. In the summer, the vegetation is at its richest, and the culinary offer is at its best thanks to the richness of fresh foods, but the number of visitors is also highest.

Does the Krka National Park entrance ticket also include the boat ride?

The single entrance ticket for Krka National Park includes the boat transport from Skradin to Skradinski buk. Boat excursions to Visovac, Roški slap, Krka monastery, and the medieval fortresses Nečven and Trošenj are charged extra according to the valid pricelist.

Is swimming permitted in Krka National Park?

2020 was the final year in which visitors to Krka National Park were able to swim in Skradinski Buk.  From January 2021, swimming in the whole area of the park is banned.
