Plitvice Lakes National Park is a UNESCO world heritage site famous for its spectacular 16 interconnected lakes and waterfalls, which are surrounded by fir, beech, and spruce forest. Located roughly halfway between capital city Zagreb and Zadar on the coast, it is a one hour drive from the international airport and equally to the beach. Whilst equipped with signposted hiking trails, the park has numerous MTB cycle trails over 30,000 hectares for all levels.
Leave the crowds and kit up for a 5-hour MTB guided tour of Plitvice National Park. Choose to meet your instructor at the activity base or get picked up from your accommodation for a 360° trail of the lakes and woodland. A challenging off-road adventure suited to experienced riders or adventurous beginners, get in the saddle for an uphill challenge to the border between Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina where the Dinaric Alps rips this spectacular mountain peak apart. Navigate deep forest, ruined ex-military radar facilities, and Tito's eagle nest as you ride at altitude - using unpaved single tracks, woodland paths and gravel roads that teeter close to the cliff's edge! Stopping along the way to take in the views, your guide is also on hand to give you local insight into the region, its traditions, and chequered past, plus - high-quality bike rental is included, meaning all you need to bring is bike shorts and your A game...
