Balkan Holidays is featuring Plitvice Lakes in Croatia as a new destination for 2016.

The UNESCO World Heritage site features a National Park with 16 lakes, waterfalls, woodland and walkways. The operator has two-centre holidays to Croatia combining, for example, seven nights on the Opatija Riviera with seven nights in Plitvice Lakes.

Chris Rand, sales and marketing manager for the operator, said: “There’s never been a better time to book a package holiday to Croatia. As well as a keenly priced deal, those booking can take advantage of transfers to and from the resort and holiday reps once they get to the resort, coupled with the security that booking a package holiday provides.”

Examples of packages include seven nights at the three-star Hotel Odisej Mljet for £468 per person based on two sharing. The price includes half-board accommodation and flights from Gatwick on May 14. The hotel is located within the national park in the cove of Pomena and close to the saltwater lakes of Mljet. A regular boat service also operates to the island of St. Mary where there is a Benedictian Monastery from the 12th century. The price includes an early booking discount, applicable until the end of this month.

The operator also offers a variety of cruises departing from Dubrovnik and Split. A ‘Dalmatian Highlights Cruise’ on the Adriatic Pearl, flying from Gatwick to Dubrovnik on September 24, and cruising for seven nights costs from £846 based on two sharing a cabin. Islands visited on the itinerary include Korcula, Brac and Hvar with plenty of opportunities en route for sightseeing, swimming and sunbathing.
