Rarely can we find any place in the world that has such an interesting and equally convenient location to visit a large number of national parks, as Murter. Not more than an hour's drive from Murter are three national parks - Kornati, Krka and Paklenica. Equally spectacular is the nearby nature park Vransko Jezero. The larger nearby town of Šibenik, which is under UNESCO protection, certainly shouldn’t be missed. You will also find the historical city of Zadar as well as another famous Croatian national park - Plitvice Lakes at only 200 kilometres away.
During your stay at the Jezera Village Resort, you will find numerous possibilities of organized day trips. In order to ensure high quality tours and services, the organization is carried out by a partner of the resort Tureta Tours offers, prices and further information are available near the Jezera Village reception. We recommend that excursions are not booked through unknown and similar agencies, whose agents approach guests on the beaches and in other places as we cannot guarantee the quality and guaranteed departures on their behalf.
There are numerous excursion options which may even include a boat ride, referring to the Kornati National Park. The most compact and best preserved ecological island group in the Mediterranean, which has 89 islands, is particularly popular among guests of the Jezera Village Holiday Resort. Murter is an ideal starting point due to its location. The excursion rides are short, which give more time for swimming and discovering most of the park in one complete day.
Enjoy the boat ride while visiting the nearby Krka National Park. With its seven waterfalls the Krka River is a natural phenomenon. Close to Murter you can find the largest natural lake in Croatia. Vransko Jezero is one of the few, almost untouched natural bird habitats, which is a favourite place for many cyclists. There are over 50 km of bike paths stretching around the lake from simple easy paths to more challenging difficult areas with a range of passing landscape. For those who enjoy hiking, spend an active holiday at the Paklenica National Park stretching on the littoral slope of South Velebit.
