Today you will leave the capital, Zagreb, and drive towards the Plitvice Lakes area and National Park.
Along the way there will be options to stop at a few unknown locations we believe are worth visiting such as the Museum in Turanj, Rastoke, and Barač caves.
The museum in Turanj is mostly an open-air museum telling stories about the homeland war in the 1990ies and exhibiting military equipment and airplanes.
Rastoke is a small village, known for the old water mills and as the place where 2 rivers meet and create beautiful waterfalls in the area of a small town Slunj. Waterfalls here are "Little brother" to Plitvice lakes and a great opportunity for landscape photos of waterfalls and the area of the picturesque village of Rastoke.
After Rastoke, you would go to Barač caves. Barač caves and interesting place to see, as lots of bones of prehistoric animals were found there. Visit would be with a local guide on 50 min tour.
After Rastoke and Caves, you will drive to Plitvice Lakes National Park at your local accommodation.
The day would be done easily and you can decide on the spot how much you wish to do.

The real deal
If you are coming to Croatia I heartily recommend Roberto P / Soul of Croatia to make your trip memorable and trouble free. Robi is an excellent organizer and very knowledgeable guide. He designed a cycling trip that gave me and my husband just the right amount of challenge and I finished feeling great. Croatia is so beautiful and he is incredibly generous with true insider info and connections. I will never forget the experiences and memories he made for us - and I have never before laughed so hard on a guided trip. I truly felt like he brought the Soul of Croatia to us.

Amazing vacation in Croatia
First time that we've been moved to make a post like this but just returned from a week long cycling trip in Croatia that is easily among the best vacations we have ever taken largely due to the expert organization and guidance provided by Robi of Soul of Croatia. Every day was truly a new adventure highlighted by beautiful rides, exceptional views, gorgeous weather, wonderful local food and people and Robi's commitment to ensuring that we fully enjoyed and appreciated the diversity and rich history that this beautiful country offers. Like everybody else in our group, we cannot wait to make a return trip and highly recommend Robi/Soul of Croatia to any others contemplating a trip to this part of the world. Thanks again Robi and we look forward to seeing you again soon. Michael and Joanne K

A Most Amazing Cycling Trip
Our cycling trip with Roberto was one of the best trips I have ever taken. And this is the second cycling trip I have done with Roberto. I didn’t possibly think he could outdo the excellence of the first trip, but Roberto did. The second trip also exceeded all of my expectations. Our group of eight friends were taken on a private Cycling tour carefully customized to meet all of our needs. Roberto picked daily Cycling adventures which brought us to exquisitely beautiful places in Croatia, and each day was more beautiful than the last. Roberto’s knowledge of Croatia, his connections to the local people, his passion for the history and customs of every place that we visited, could not be replicated by anyone else. Roberto personally took us on a tour of the old city of Dubrovnik, as well as the city of Ston, and he constantly provided us with knowledge of the local areas. Roberto chose restaurants for us, which were excellent and which served traditional delicious Croatian cuisine. Roberto had personal connections to many of the restaurants and wineries we visited which meant we were provided with the highest level of service. Both before, and after our trip, Roberto assisted us with any other excursions and bookings we were interested in. After our trip was complete he personally took us on a boat tour where we swam in amazing caves. It was an exceptional trip, and I cannot recommend Roberto and Soul of Croatia highly enough to anybody who would like to experience Croatia as it should be experienced.
