Raftrek Adventure Travel BLOG
Great combination of activities and nature
E-cycling Plitvice Lakes week trip is a spectacular e-cycling adventure. A week trip that provides an ideal opportunity to experience the natural wonders and breathtaking views of the region. Even in a country as small as Croatia, you can still find untouched, rural countryside, covered with forests and green fields. The day trips within this E-cycling Plitvice Lakes week trip are a combination of activities, cultural and nature experiences.
Plitvice Lakes National Park, a World Heritage Site, could be only explored by foot, surrounded with endless waterfalls and forest. To get there we combine cycling and walking. This region is definitely a waterfall region, there are so many waterfalls, that we stopped counting after a while. Daily cycling routes are between two and five hours on moderate to challenge terrain and leave enough time for relaxing in the evening.
Highlights of this E-cycling Plitvice Lakes week trip
Among the other highlights of this E-cycling Plitvice Lakes trip, are Zeljava airport or “Object 505”, Barac caves, Rastoke village, and Mreznica waterfalls. The “Object 505” was one of the most sophisticated engineering projects builds in 60’ for the communist military air force in Yugoslavia. Cycling the Land of Waterfalls through war ruins and military remains through an endless green landscape, visiting the underground of the caves, and swimming under the waterfalls, are all great reasons to join this great E-cycling adventure week trip.
