Driving Plitvice Lakes to Dubrovnick in one day

Jump to last reply

We have a week in Croatia planned starting in mid-June. The trip unavoidably starts just east of Venice and the plan is to drive in to Croatia, keeping the same car the whole time.

The basic idea is to drive to Plitvice Lakes on day one, spend the afternoon and morning there and then drive all the way to Dubrovnick the next day, arriving in the evening. Two nights in Dubrovnick and then a slower trip back up the coast, taking the bulk of the time on the trip on the way back to the Venice area.

The only real concern is getting to Dubrovnick from Plitvice Lakes after leaving the park around noon. Google Maps says the trip is 5 hours, 25 min so with a rest break thrown in I would hope it would be no more than 6 hours. Is this a reasonable expectation?

Thanks in advance,

John
