Croatia by Motorhome | Family Bike Adventures at KrKa National Park
Tempus Fugit!!!! Time to move on as we headed northwards for our eventual destination – Slovenia! But on the way we simply had to experience one of the natural wonders of Europe – a Croatian National Park – and not anyone, perhaps the best Krka National Park.
Canyons of limestone followed spectacular gorges as we headed across stunning forest paths through glades of trees… spring sunshine filled the air, whilst that special smell of fresh pine wafted past our nostrils…. bliss!! Then we realised the eventual distance some 8km of fast descents followed by lung busting uphills…. before a series of hairpins with little to stop a skid and involuntary dive into the river some 80m below!
It’s not all about the waterfalls though, there are historic churches, blacksmiths and a working demonstration of how this started a hydro-electric power movement pre WW1… Add into that the boardwalks through the river glades, wildlife including snakes enjoying the view on sun soaked terraces along the waterfall cascades.. it really was a special afternoon…
Slovenia and the 350km journey beckons…. so another country noticed up… but we will return as we are firmly under the spell of this beautiful country.. LifeinourVan officially love Croatia!
