Plitvice National Park lies in the heart of Croatian wilderness. A gem surrounded by delicate deciduous forest; Plitvice is made up of a series of "falling lakes"- the term given to the step like nature of the landscape, where mineral rich waters flow from step to step connected by some of the most extraordinary waterfalls. The minerals in the water gives each lake it's own beautiful turquoise hue, some deep and sensuous, others clear and bright.
Plitvice is one of those rare places that will haunt you with it's beauty. There are miles of very well maintained boardwalk trails; ferries that can shuttle you to the more remote corners of the lakes; and friendly guides and rangers.
Another highlight to visiting Plitvice: although there are hotels (which will cost you!) the more common (and authentic) way to stay in Plitivice, is to stay with a family that lives in the nearby village. There is a booth at the park entrance, with staff that can help to locate a family for you, and will make sure that you know where to go from there. It's rare to have such access to local homes and customs, and personally, that experience was easily equal to the natural, stunning beauty of the landscape.

This is about a 7km walk through 16 lakes, each with numerous waterfalls. At the end of the walk there is a HUGE waterfall. The water is how God meant it to be. The color is unimagineable. This is a must see if you are in the area.

Whilst we were cruising with our flotilla we spent time at Hvar. Fantastic town square and plenty of history.
Site still under construction.
