Visit Rastoke – the most picturesque village

Splendid countryside – A Gourmet day trip from Zagreb through scenic roads

If you like to visit nature, enjoy local customs and great food, in a slow-pace leisurely way, this tour is a perfect treat and rightly called “an authentic experience”.

Have your camera ready as you set off to explore the most amazing play of nature – Rastoke Village, nestled in the mountains southwest of the capital Zagreb, one and half hours drive. If you are a foodie and love to explore unique sites, this tour is perfect for you as it is not going to exhaust you, but will rather energize you!  A lot of tourists stop by only to take a snapshot, missing to truly immerse and enjoy exploring what we consider a miniature of the nearby Plitvice Lakes. One should not be rushed but take it as one of the best local experiences.

The land where the lovely settlement of Rastoke was developed was formed by the movement of the two rivers Korana and Slunjčica. Rastoke is well-known for its numerous mills used to process grain from adjacent towns, as well as its lovely traditional-style buildings. Every season recounts a distinct narrative and gives Rastoke a new appearance and its stunning waterfalls will mesmerize you.

On the way to Rastoke, we will stop to visit the Homeland War Museum in Turanj.

Traditional gourmet lunch is also included and is an absolute highlight matching the beauty of the place. We shall also visit a traditional liqueur-tasting distillery, producing gin and Croatian brandies “rakija” (subject to seasonal availability).

This tour is a light tour and doesn’t require a high level of physical ability. This tour is not suitable for people with mobility issues. Please let us know at the time of booking.

If you have special dietary requirements, please be so kind to specify at the time of booking.

    T&T travel boutique (Tihana) has organized a sailing boat trip for me and my five friends last June. The boat was great, skipper she found was the best we ever had (we sailed quite a few times in the past) and the itinerary she put together was excellent. Tihana was extremely helpful all the way through and we had an awesome trip! Needless to say, we shall go again with her agency!

    Maja Jelusic Cooper / Guest

    We recently were introduced to T&T Travel when we found ourselves in Croatia for a three week vacation with no travel plans. They quickly responded to our inquiries, met with us in Zagreb on very short notice, and crafted a travel itinerary with hotel reservations and tour suggestions. In hindsight, it was a perfect experience and T&T deserves all the credit for helping us understand and appreciate Croatia.
