Krka Waterfalls Shore Excursion from Split

    09:00 Pick up and departure
    10:30 – 12:30 Walking tour of the Skradinski Buk Waterfall area
    13:00 – 14:00 Drive back to Split and drop-off


    Your tour guide/driver will meet you at the cruise ship port gate, carrying a sign with your name.

    After a smooth one-hour-long drive on a modern highway you will reach the entrance to the Krka National Park.
    After having taken care of the entrance tickets, a short introduction will be provided by your private tour guide, allowing you to make the best of your free time in the park. Alternatively, if you wish so, your tour guide can continuously stay with you, providing assistance and support.

    The Krka Waterfalls, or Skradinski Buk Waterfalls, as one of the most photographed landmarks of Croatia, does not really need special advertisement. Dozens of intertwined streams and channels, passing among a lush, jungle-like vegetation, finally merge into a powerful series of cascading waterfalls. Ancient watermills in no way interfere with the natural symphony. Rather, human intervention made the park even more stunning, introducing even more drama into the landscape.

    The raised boardwalks allow easy access to otherwise secluded areas, opening new vistas over and over again. Although access to the most spectacular part to the park, the bridge over the Krka River, is possible only to visitors able to easily manage stairs, numerous look-out points at the starting level allow people with walking and other disabilities to marvel at the cascades. The National Park has even made a tactile model of the waterfall area, enabling persons with vision impairment to comprehend this miracle of nature to some extent.

    The drive back to Split will allow your tour guide to introduce you to Croatia and its people, tell you more about Split and the region and give suggestions for your future trips. Fully invigorated, you will be dropped off at your cruise ship, ready to continue your discovery of Croatia.


    Design your family day out in Croatia

    Booking a private shore excursion provides you with great flexibility and freedom. Depending on your fixed schedule, you may be able to extend the visit to the park by visiting nearby UNESCO-protected towns of Šibenik, Trogir or Split.

    Or you could simply go to the beach. Kids would certainly love it. Finally, unless you’re into intermittent fasting, stopping for a light lunch might be a good idea. Feel free to share your thought with us, and we will make your dreams come true.
