Nature’s awakening

Nature is awakening from its winter doldrums. The trees are greener, and the flowers are in full bloom. Snowdrops will delight anyone who walks along the lakes. You will hear birds singing and often listen to them calling out for a new age. This is the age of the new generations they will raise in their nests. Walking in the Upper Lakes will allow you to spot a mother duck and her fluffy ducklings. They are adorable and can smile on visitors’ faces because of their fluff. You may have to look harder to find them, as the mother duck is skilled at hiding her ducklings among bushes. Their color protects the duckling from other animals and is a perfect camouflage. Everywhere you look, there is action everywhere. Bumblebees and honeybees buzz and fly from one flower to the next in the company of butterflies. Both the animal and plant worlds are playful…

Lake Tour Programmes

Spring is the best time to see the beauty of waterfalls. Winter brings more precipitation, making it colder. The Upper Lakes are therefore closed during winter. Warmer days and longer working hours are usually associated with faster opening times of the Upper Lakes.

Did you know the Park offers eight tours? You can choose how far you want to walk depending on your ability. You can only choose to visit the Upper or Lower Lakes while at the Park. You can also spend an entire day in the Park, as you choose. You won’t regret choosing any of these options. Every step of the way, you can enjoy the beauty and wonders of nature. The Lower Lakes can be found in a canyon. A sight worth seeing is Veliki slap Waterfall – a perfect spot to refresh yourself with its water spray.

Spring flowers are entirely in bloom.

Spring flowers blossom in spring and bring a smile to everyone’s faces as soon as they appear. A fragrant spring will be marked by longer and warmer days. They are vital to the ecosystem as they provide food for many insects. Most often, they bring out a variety of species of butterflies and bees from their hiding places to survive until they bloom. Because the rocks of the Lower Lakes canyon attract more heat from the sun and melt snow faster, the first spring flowers are most likely to bloom in this canyon. The Lower Lakes canyon can sometimes see spring flowers bloom several weeks earlier than other areas of the National Park. You will find many types of spring flowers as you walk along the trails at Plitvice lakes, including primroses, snowdrops, and cornflowers. There are also many other species. Take in their beauty and diversity of colors. But pick only one flower to maintain the beauty and harmony of their habitats.
