Depart the town of Split by motorcoach through the Karst Sibenik region to the famous Krka River waterfalls. Located in the lovely Krka National Park, the falls have 17 natural cascades. Krka is one of the seven national parks in Croatia and it covers an area of over 35,000 acres. The Krka River is a distinctive phenomenon due its specific biocenosis and formation of gypsum barriers. The whole area is rich with endemic species - vegetation as well as birds and fish. Due to very strong laws on natural preservation this extraordinary area has been preserved in its original form. You'll be taken to the most attractive part of the park – the Skradinski Buk waterfalls. The highest fall is approximately 151 feet (46 meters) high, which makes it the highest gypsum barrier in Europe. Above the falls there is a large plateau that offers spectacular views for the perfect photo opportunity. You'll also have a chance to visit the small ethnological exhibition and the old mill which still functions and you can learn about the grinding process. Around the falls there is a path for you to explore further independently.
Note: During summer months expect extreme heat. We recommend that you dress in layers and bring bottled water. Walking at Krka National Park is at the guests' discretion during the free time and over the varying terrain, inclines and approximately 100 or more steps. Swimming is at the guests' own risk since no lifeguards are on duty. Sturdy walking shoes are recommended for the hike/walk portion of the tour. Lunch is not included in this tour; however, there is time for a snack on your own. Due to the nature of this tour, it is not recommended for guests with walkers or wheelchairs. The drive between Split and Krka National Park is approximately 1 1/4 hours each way, dependent upon traffic conditions.

After selecting many 'out of the way' places for our excursions, we weren't looking forward to another bus ride... But, pleasant surprise, the roads around Split are well cared for, easily traversed, and in May the countryside was beautiful. It's just a short trip out to Krka and it was well worth the drive!
Krka is a national park of Croatia, so you will see some people there! It isn't empty, but it's certainly nowhere near as crowded as the old town directly in Split. The big advantage? The absolutely breathtaking scenery. The multiple stages and complexes of waterfalls are simply gorgeous... And don't forget your bathing suit and towel, because this river is an approved swimming area!
