Looking for some advice.
Having done Dubrovnik, Cavtat and Korcula, my partner and I really fancy going further north in Croatia and trying to incorporate a trip to Plitvice Lakes. Originally, I was looking at flying to Zadar, Zagreb or Rijeka, hiring a car, going to Plitvice for a few nights, then on somewhere else for a week, however, I can only really find flights to those airports from London airports - around 3-4 hours from where we are. There is however some pretty good package holidays from Leeds Bradford to Rabac, Rovinj or for 11 nights. So, I'm wondering if we book one of these, then book 2 days car hire and 1 night accommodation in Plitvice. This would give us a whole day in Pltivice rather than the 12-4 pm offered by tours operators from either resorts. So my questions... Is the drive from Rabac or Rovinj easier? I know it's going to take around 3 hours from either, but is it a relatively straight forward drive? Is up to 2 days and 1 night enough for Pltivice and is 10 nights in Rabac or Rovinj too much, is there a clear winner out of Rabac or Rovinj or is there somewhere better than either of these places?
Thanks in advance!
