Collaboration with GetYourGuide

Urednik Blog, News

Plitvice Lakes National Park is pleased to announce its collaboration with one of the world’s leading travel platforms, GetYourGuide.

Plitvice Lakes National Park, a jewel of Croatia’s natural heritage, introduced in 2019 an online ticket sales system as part of the Visitor Management Action Plan, to ensure that visits do not impair the values of the Park as well as enabling visitors to enjoy an effortless and complete experience, thus presenting the preserved world heritage in the best possible way, generating revenue needed for its preservation, building public support for the cause of nature conservation, and opening up opportunities for the sustainable development of the local community.

For this reason, a system was developed which enables the purchase of a limited number of tickets per hour and entrance, more affordable afternoon ticket prices during the season, as well as more affordable ticket prices in the off-season. This resulted in stable visitor numbers with extremely high visitor satisfaction, which is best evidenced by excellent ratings on numerous platforms.

Further improvement of the visitor experience

This year, the Plitvice Lakes National Park is taking a step further in improving the visitor experience by entering into a new partnership and enabling the purchase of tickets on the GetYourGuide platform. Since there are numerous conditions that need to be met in order for the National Park’s ticket sales system to be able to operate, the integration project involved numerous partners who worked together on enabling this connection. The aim of this collaboration is to raise the awareness of travelers about the importance of planning trips in advance and purchasing tickets online. The planning plays a key role in determining the duration of a visitor’s stay, and such platforms help to present the rich offer of the Plitvice Lakes National Park and its surroundings in time.

One of the goals of this collaboration is the creation of new tourism products in the Plitvice Lakes National Park. In this way, different segments of visitors will have an opportunity to find products that best suit their interests and preferences, which will contribute to the diversity of experiences the Park has to offer. This partnership also highlights a deep commitment to sustainability. The Plitvice Lakes National Park and GetYourGuide share a passion for sustainable tourism and the preservation of the natural beauty of this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

GetYourGuide is also there for travelers when they are only just beginning to look for inspiration for their next trip, and when travelers come to the Plitvice Lakes National Park, that inspiration becomes reality.
