Lika is a region that can be explored year round! Home to the famous Plitvice Lakes National Park and amazing nature, the region is also full of tradition and wonderful food and drink!

You can sleep in a treehouse, explore Nikola Tesla’s birthplace and truly get lost in nature! Everyone should visit Lika, anytime of the year!

Where is it? Lika is in the heart of Croatia, close to Zagreb and a great place to stop on your way to the coast.

How to get here? You must have a car to explore the Lika region, however you can take buses to Plitvice Lakes from Zagreb and Karlovac.

Best combined with: If you travel to Zagreb in the winter to visit this Christmas Market, you can combine your trip with a visit to Lika.

Ashley’s favorite thing to do here: I like to visit Plitvice Lake during every season, it really is a magical place.
