Fantastic Tour of Plitvice Lakes

Elena was a fantastic guide for our tour. She was full of fun facts and super sassy! The walk around Plitvice was a good 4hours but really managable for any level of fitness and there were alternative routes for anyone who wanted to skip ahead. The lakes are stunning and really worth making the journey for and I'm so glad we scheduled it in to part of our stay in Split.
